Summary

They had seven years to prepare. Earth is lost.

Seven years ago the New Earth colony received one final message from Earth...a warning. First a global pandemic, then the emergence of a new species. A war for survival ravaged the Sol system. Now they are coming for the colony.

Many colonists don't believe it, but Connor does. They must prepare. They must fight. But how can they survive something that killed every person back on Earth?

Still Hooked

I am still hooked on the First Colony series. Several years have passed since the end of the first book and Connor is fighting a losing battle getting the colony ready if the invasion from Earth happens. People do not believe that they are in danger and just as Connor heads back from a failed mission to get more support it happens. The invasion arrives. This is a desperate battle to keep the colony from being overrun and it comes at a great cost. The same narrator does this one and he still does a great job getting the right emotions with the right people. I am already listening to the next book in the series.

Better than the first but not by much..


So, in the last book we had the Ryklars, the animals on New Earth that began to attack the humans. In this book we have the aliens that killed everyone on earth and had come for the only Earthlings left.

Almost the entire book was one big battle and General Connor Gates and his men were outnumbered but since the aliens, the Vemus, were sort of animals themselves Connor and his men killed them all. BUT that was just the first wave of them so now we have to prepare for the second wave. They had 7 years to prepare but they have no idea how long they have this time.

I liked both books, maybe this one a little more.

No romance and very little swearing.

As to the narration: Again Scott Aiello was awesome. Great voices and reading with such emotion was phenomenal.

Good story but lots of cliches

The story premise and occasional suspense was quite good, but the predictable cliche's, redundant writing and slow pacing hold it back.

the humor has lessened, instead things got serious

great book, must read or listen to. there's humor, horror, characters that mean something, strategy, and relationships relatable to the real world.

Conner said. Tobias said. <br />

Lozito should work on his dialogue skills. We know who said what 90% of the time. The other 10% can be iterated in some other way besides he said she said.
