Summary

Sequel to Ambush - award-winning apocalyptic thriller

Can today's militaries board and control the emptied alien armada that hangs over our heads?

After the massive battle to save today's Earth went horribly wrong, leaving a huge fleet of ghost ships hanging over the planet, humanity is left to fight for itself. Can we use our genetic link to the fleet's fallen commanders to rein in the ships before they start crashing down onto an already battered world? And when dark galactic forces once again amass in our skies, can humanity make a stand?

It’s 2019. Jake and Sandy saved the world...twice!

But that was yesterday.

Independence Day meets The X-Files when Air Force fighter pilots Jake Giard and Sandra Fitzpatrick join a decades-old secret project to integrate today's Earth into a galactic government. But when a galactic civil war spills onto our shores, plunging the planet into an otherworldly post-apocalyptic hell, can Jake and Sandy save humanity from extinction?

Following the apocalyptic events of Ambush, Jake must board and somehow control the advanced alien fleet of huge ships before they start falling into the Atlantic. 

Yesterday, Captain Sandra Fitzpatrick learned she’s pregnant. Then, she helped save the world. Now, she must keep her condition a secret (even from Jake, the father to be). The remnants of humanity need Sandy and her cobbled together band of warriors to somehow master the alien technology. 

If Jake and Sandy prevail, and if Earth’s ravaged militaries can unite, can they adapt now outdated tactics to the limitless battlefield of space?

"Cole tackles the first-contact scenario with bombastic flair. [He] delivers the high-resolution imagery of a Hollywood blockbuster.... A technologically riveting dream for sci-fi action fans." (Kirkus Reviews)

Good idea poorly written. A very disjointed story. To be fair even Bray couldn't save it.

Excellent

Excellent sequel, emotive with some good action too. RCB typically brilliant although he didn’t get to use his full range of silly accents in this one... arguably a good thing.

Mind Bubblegum (but that's a good thing)

If you need to forget about your world, and jump into another for a while then these books provide that escape. Good 'ripping yarn'

predictable

look I normally love Dean M Coles stories but I thought this was predictable, I enjoyed RC Bray's performance as usual, I'm not saying the book is terrible, it's a good listen but totally predictable.

If you like sci-fi don't miss this series

A "what if aliens exist" type sci-fi story that develops in to an outstanding series.

Rinse and Repeat

Story good. But spends way to much time repeating every event over and over again from different people's vantage point. The last few hours of book one and start of book two going over the same small part of a battle.

RC Bray's recommendation to me was spot on.

I loved this series as much as I did Expeditionary Force. They have some similarities that that make both series great. Sector 64 offers some really exciting and novel ideas to keep you hooked. I look forward to Dean's other work and hope he can make a future 64 trilogy reality

Love it!

Absolutely love this series! The only remark I have is that I would have liked more General Firecracker.

Loved the story

Dean M. Cole has written a good series. Should he continue with the series, I can assure him that he has a loyal follower in me. RC Bray, of course, does his usual and expected good job as narrator. If I had a small complaint, it would be that it needs a little bit more "in their head " conversation so the reader can get a little better feel for the characters in the book and how they are dealing with the situations they are in. Again, a very minor complaint. Thank you Sir for a good story. Please keep up the good work.!

Never a dull moment!

I had a lot of fun listening to this story. There was never a dull moment. The pace of the story always keep me wanting more. It was difficult turning it off. I hope Mr. Cole continues with another story or two with Sandy & Jake.

Listened back to back with Book I, Ambush

Like I said in my previous review of Ambush (Book 1), it's narrated by R.C. Bray, so there is already reason to listen to it.
Continues the story line to a reasonably satisfying (if not predictable, tho no spoilers as it depends on your perspective of what is predictable ) ending.

Lavish world building

Dean has an amazing ability to grab you and compel you to keep reading or listening.
The book was so well written that you could almost believe that we are ancient argonians
