Summary

Two hundred years ago, aliens invaded Earth. A violent war followed. The enemy won. Some of us escaped, most of us didn’t.

On Proxima they flourished - the invasion forgotten. On Earth we floundered - the horror began.

Their world is advanced, peaceful, and secure. Our world is broken, savage, and overrun.

A new invasion is coming. A hunger that has swallowed half the universe.

They don’t care which planet we live on. They want to end us all. But where there is life, there is hope. And where there is hope, there are heroes.

Sheriff. Marine. Pilot. Engineer. Centurion. Clone. This time, vengeance will be ours.

M. R. Forbes is a genius!

Mr Forbes, you're a sadistic, cunning, sneaky SOB! Loved the book! Was glued to it from start to finish! The cliffhanger had me shouting at my phone! I just hope that book 2 comes out soon or I'll be tearing my beard out! To the Lord Bray! You did it again dude! Another reason why I love hearing you narrate! You know how to create the right atmosphere, how to draw us in to a crazy psychotic situation! Sir, you're a legend!

SHORT. I But I liked the story and the style.

R. C. Is great as always... I feel like a bit of a stalker sometimes. Now go record the next Ex Force already Mr Bray! Give Craig a kick up the butt if necessary. 🤣 I will be getting the next book in this series though as I really do like the background that's been built and the way the characters are portrayed. Just hope the rest of the series are longer!

Gripping Story

Throughly enjoyed this first book into, hopefully an equally great series. Superbly narrated (as usual). I look forward to listening to book 2.

Next Level! must listen

I've always liked books narrated by RC Bray, the man is an Audible legend and brings every book to life for anyone with a vivid imagination and even for those without. I got bored writing reviews as all I could say about each book I listen to, that he narrated, was that it was amazing in one form or anotherther - so I stopped writing reviews until now... M.R Forbes has created a story with depth, of not just universe he creates, but the characters that are intertwined in this multi faceted story. This is a story that has multiple angles, is not too complex to follow, but with a number of strong characters and groups at play coming from different directions to converge into what can only be a fantastic series about to unfold. I can not wait for the next installment and it better be read by Mr RC Bray!

A struggle

really confused about who was who for a lot of the book. Not enough back story for each of the characaters. Coming from the exforce series this book was a struggle

NAILED IT

M R Forbes has created a deep universe punctuated with contrasting light made by various characters. Invasion is the beginning of the culmination of various series which I have been reading for years and I have to say it was all worth it/ The invasion series makes all of the other books feel like primers for something larger, as if I was reading for years just for this series. If you are a fan of all things Sci-fi but prefer well written and thought out series and good writing you would be an idiot not to try this!

a good listen

I really enjoyed the book and its take on futuristic combat. I think there is a little bit of everything for everyone. If you're a fan of apocalyptic literature, you will enjoy this tale.

false information

picked up this book form audible. States that it's book 1. In reality book 4 in a series It is book 1 in the next series arch. Would have been nice if there had been something to state that. The story leaves the listener confused by half information from the previous three books. so only reader's of the series would understand the flow of the book.

Quite confusing

I enjoyed the story, although there are so many different races and beings involved that it is hard to work out who is who for much of the novel. A prequel would be worthwhile.

Very weak ending.

Story moves at a slow pace. Author try's to use over the top action to move the story along. Saving my time and avoiding the rest of the series

only narrator made it possible to get through

normally like sci fi but this was confusing right from start. kept thinking things would be explained better but never happened. only RC Bray made it possible for me to get through it. very disappointing.

No

High on monsters and improbable fighting if those, low on plot and tech. Disappointing. The holes in the story is as big as the Grand Canyon. RC Bray awesome as usual.

Ok

It’s ok but the writer throughs in everything. Seems like things were done to stretch into a series. It’s not god enough for that and I won’t get the next one.

Meh

Really struggled to finish. The story was oddly structured and the fragmented telling took away from enjoying it.

Pretty good, saved by Bray

This may be book 1 of the Forgotten Vengeance series, but it does follow after the 3 books of the Forgotten trilogy where you will learn Sherriff Duke's story. Nevertheless, you can pick up here, without having read the first books, and follow along until you put all the pieces together; it does work. There are several aliens who want to completely destroy humans, and some who just want to suck off their lives. Several worthy characters develop here, not just Sherriff Duke. They converge from various areas of the galaxy to save Earth. It does end on a cliff hanger, so we need and can expect a sequel to further the story. RC Bray is his usual perfection here. I just wonder how much it hurts his ears to have to speak grammatical errors. Mr. Forbes, I'd be glad to review your work before you publish to remove the wincing mistakes (I like English to be correct, unless it is dialectical.) So, 4 stars, not 5.
