Summary

The mission failed but hope is not lost....

The Reclaimer's attack on the Gateway didn't go as planned, but a dying man's words sparked a revolution.

Alec receives a message from the Barony, a group in the UK, letting them know they have allies around the world.

Dex is still on the other side of the Occupation, but he knows he'll have to make a move soon.

Lina and Monet are sent on a mission to Shanghai to stop the production of a device keeping the aliens alive in our atmosphere.

Cole and Soares head out with a one way-ticket through a Gateway, in an attempt to permanently close them.

Reclamation pits our humanity against the dreaded Overseers, in a world where only one of them can survive.

Reclamation is the final book in the sweeping post-invasion series, Rise, by Devon C. Ford, the author of After It Happened, and Nathan Hystad, the author of The Survivors.

Truly brilliant finale!

Wow what an ending! I've absolutely loved this whole series. The characters, action and storyline are so well written, I hated the pauses between my available listening time!! I hope these two great authors collaborate again.

Not his best work

I’m a big fan of Devon C Ford, his After It Happened and Toy Soldiers series are up there with my favourite stories. Unfortunately this trilogy of books fall well short of an author of his ability.

The main premise of an alien invasion enslaving humanity for decades did have me hooked, however the execution was poor.

(I’m being vague here to prevent spoilers) but the whole driving force of how the uprising comes about is just terrible - people are obviously happy to see their nearest & dearest killed/worked to death but a handful of people and their fate manage to pull on the heartstrings so much that the world finally says “no”

The protagonists were all very one dimensional and I didn’t care for any of their fates. The only reason I stayed for the full trilogy was for my loyalty to the author.

The trilogy should be 1 credit...

Its a really good finish to an average mehhhh series...
Easy listening but in my honest opinion not worth a credit each..
Ray Porter is fast becoming my no.1 narrator just pipping RCB...and thats saying somthing...
If you like RP I highly recommend EARTHCORE followed by MOUNT FITZ...

Struggled to finish

Interestingly the last book in the series was the hardest to finish.
The pacing is weird: from a gruesome battle scene to humorous banter in to quick a time.

Also, when people read military sci fi, they are looking for details on technology and strategy and so on. In this book, an entire world is added to the USA, and this entire thing gets wrapped up in a rushing manner.

Altogether too much banter and constant nerdgasming references to start wars and start trek.

Another great book.

Nathan and Devon have done it again! Reclamation is a great third and final entry to the Rise series. As usual the narrator, Ray Porter has done a great job. This book and the entire series are worth your time to read or listen to.

Waiting for next Galaxy’s Edge book? Read this!

Who will like this? Pretty much anyone who appreciates being drawn into the different characters’ stories as much as the sci-fi / alien occupying earth concept. There is definitely a little gore and violence here, but not remotely in the same league as the Galaxy’s Edge or Ember War series.

Is it a slow or fast start? Fast. Definitely doesn’t take long to get invested in the stories. Some may feel it moves too fast because it doesn’t get too bogged down in the details. Personally, this is what I wanted this week. Just good storytelling with good narration.

Notes on the narrator: I like Ray Porter more and more every time I listen to his work. He’s great with distinctive male voices and accents. He’s also perfect if you like to increase the speed and keep the quality of the narration intact, He’s not the best at creating female voices, but they are definitely good enough to keep you in the story.

Final Thoughts: What a great series. Three books - all three very good and easy listens. Very character driven. Refreshingly light on technical jargon. Nothing tired or stale here - the only common fare is a few humorous pop culture references that help the reader relate to how much has been lost in such a short time. It also makes true space opera and sci-fi fans feel at home with a welcoming nod or two by way of older characters in the story using jargon from our favorite space opera movies to talk over the heads of young adults born after the occupation.

Where there's a will there's a way !!

Even though the alien race was stronger. Humans were more resilient. Lots of clues along the way in each book. Will the aliens return someday??
Very well written book. Awesome reading by Ray Porter and many voices.

A well crafted ending

Closure, tense moments and plenty of sacrifice. This was every bit as good as the previous two.

Great story with mostly great narration.

I do love listening to Ray read, he's got a classic voice, but his mastery of accents is...well, it isn't. He butchers many of them in this book, but given how good it is to listen to his narration, it's not overly important. I'm not good with accents either... 😉
Other than that, the story is great and the performance excellent.

it is okay.. or maybe not ?!

Well.. I can't even decide if it is okay or no. It was just about to get interesting and it finished. Then the end continued for another hour telling us trivial stuff.. and the start was pretty trivial.. so basically near the end was somewhat interesting - more stuff about the aliens, but not for long. Most of the book story is about humans, missing this and that.. big drama for missing usual stuff.. as if that's what we are interested in listening for 3 full books!!!!

just the right mix of cold blooded killers and good guy stories

As always, Ray Porter was a wonderful narrator. He brings the characters to life, and I don’t long to read print when he is narrating.

This series was fun and not fun. Heavy subject, but played delicately, with just the right mix of cold blooded killers and good guy stories.

Some things came too easily, and other things failed unexpectedly. A few loose ends, but who wants to read the last book in a great series? I would welcome a time-jump to the next generation with new characters.

What would I change about this story?

What would I change about the story; it would have to be related to the character Monet. Felt very disappointed that all the stereo typical stereotypes that are typically apply to black women being strong and not needing anyone were in the story. Really wanted her to have a love interest but apparently she was the only one who didn’t need anyone right? Really disappointed please do some more research regarding African-American women before writing your next book.

Entertaining

Ray Porter is an outstanding performer. He was the main reason that I decided to take a listen to this trilogy. So glad that I did! The story flows very well and is well written. If you listen to the first book you are going to listen to all three. It's just that simple. Entertaining and fun.
