Summary

They came in peace. But that was last time…

As the world gears up for the first anniversary of Contact Day, Dan McCarthy’s year-long effort to stay out of the limelight collapses in an instant.

A direct call from the Messengers throws Dan into urgent action, but the fallout plants a troubling seed of doubt:

This time, maybe they didn’t come here to help....

finishing on a low note

from the highs and the k
lows throughout the trilogy, I found this one to be the most tamest of books. it rises and you think,

" heck there going to be 6 more story books"

but alas! no. everything tidies very neatly and easily. stupidly so in my opinion.

Excellent trilogy

The “south” Sheffield/mockney accent aside, this was a very enjoyable listen. All three books have been very well narrated, and the story has been great.

Whilst I am sad it’s over, it probably is best left as a trilogy.

Rushed ending

I was surprised at how quickly this book ended and all the ends tied up. Several prominent characters barely get mentioned again.

Never quite takes off

A pleasant enjoyable end to the presumed trilogy but somehow never really feels like it hits its stride. No real sense of danger or peril as the story meanders along.

It's a reasonably satisfying end to the series but the previous stories were better imho.

Brilliant

I have so enjoyed all three of these books. Great story, great narration. I don’t usually read/listen to a book more than once (too many books out there waiting to be read) but I shall definitely be re-listening to this trilogy.

A fantastic series

A wonderful follow up and ending to the previous two books! I’ve been enthralled from the very start.

Yes it ends mushy but it plays into the realm dynamics of human behaviour.

If contact was ever to happen, I’d want it to happen like this!

Brilliant ending to the trilogy.

It was like putting on a comfy jumper listening to this book. Good twists and turns, great Finnish. Narration was great.

These books will be listened to several more tines. Recommend listening.

A nice finish to the trilogy

possibly a little contrived in places but still a good yarn and performed with the same great characterisation.

A fantastic end to a fantastic series!

From the first book I was gripped by the tremendously engrossing story of Dan McCarthy and Emma Ford.
I have enjoyed every minute of this title and am extremely pleased that the author wrote this third and final installment.

I cant recommend this series enough - get it now!

Enjoyable

I listened to all three of the Not Alone series and I really enjoyed them. This was great to listen to as I worked, easy and quick with plenty of twists and turns.

EXCELLENT!! More please!

Omg I'm sorry it's over. I fell in love with the characters and the story, and the narrator's voices were great. I've had a problem being able to listen to a lot of absolutely terrible narrators whose voices and delivery just ruin the audiobooks. Not this one. I love sci fi and aliens, and this satisfied that need.
Great story telling. I'd be very happy with more about the Reconstruction on the alien planet and interactions with our characters. Never got the names of the two Messengers.
Oh, and Timo's accent was back! Lol!

Steady decline

The first book was great, the second okay, but this was a fairytale. it was acceptable, but a bit contrived. It was a chance to see characters that we liked, play together again, but the story just couldn't compete with the original. It devolved into a chance for characters to play the same roles they always pla, and after all is said and done, they all lived happily ever after. Please don't let there be a fourth book!

A Wonderful Book and a Perfect Ending

This book is absolutely amazing and a perfect ending one of my favorite trilogy I’ve ever listened to. Do not hesitate to pick this book up. I honestly cannot even put into words how much I loved this book and the series as a whole.

10/10

Incredible

I was blown away and fell I love with the charters and storyline in book 1. The magic continued in book 2. I have goose bumps after book 3.

Lame ending

These extraterrestrials can do brain surgery and travel faster than light in starships but cannot build a house.
The first two books are great but premise of the whole thing fell apart at the end of the third.
Very disappointed

Not the best of the series

Way too much politics, not enough Aliens, and what there is of an Alien plot doesn’t make sense

Good

This is a good continuation of the story. There were more surprises then I could have ever expected. Very interested in hearing the next one.
