Publisher's Summary

Humanity isn't all they left behind.

Two years later, the world lives in fragile peace. But a clandestine search has begun...and a clock has started ticking.

Two years after first contact, Astral forces have established their fragile kingdom around the globe. Motherships occupy the cities. Shuttles patrol the lawless outlands. The pacifist class of Astrals known as Titans assist humans in running their alien empire while bloodthirsty Reptar peacekeepers ensure that order is kept. And unseen in the ships above, a third class of visitor calls the shots - the unseen Divinity, worshipped and feared by citizens in equal measure.

Meyer Dempsey sits on his plinth as Viceroy of Heaven's Veil, on the old site of Vail, Colorado. As with other Viceroys in the eight other world capitals, humanity's remains revere Meyer almost as a god. But below the surface, both colonies and outlands have begun to crumble with unrest.

Until now the rebellion has been quiet. Now desperation bubbles as they learn the Astrals have begun digging for an ancient device buried beneath the glowing blue Apex at Heaven's Veil.

But twin truths of the forthcoming alien war (or a possible alien apocalypse) have dawned at Benjamin Bannister's facility in Moab, sending plans into action: The Astrals have lost what they hoped to uncover.

And humanity's only chance is to find it first.

    Story
    "I enjoyed this one the least out of the 3 so far."

    the Storey dragged a great deal more than the previous ones and seem to lack the Punch that they had before. I thought the characters started to become a bit silly and the plot seem to wonder too much. overall I was quite disappointed.

    Story
    "Does not turn to religion"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    the book as quite a slow tempo much like the previous two ..once again it is more about internal politics then alien invasion..but please note the review pointing out religon as a main focus point is very misleading..there is all most no talk of religion only a few parts in the contest of how some religious fundamentalists view an alien invasion and religion does not play a role in this series of books ..but dont expect much of aliens either


    What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

    fantastic

    "It doesn't turn toward religion."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Colonization to be better than the print version?

    No idea. I didn't read the print version. It's much better than Contact though.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Trevor. His balls are finally dropping.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Anytime something bad happened to Rog.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. It was entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    The book mentions aliens and religion in context to the story of aliens, panspermia, and history. It's science fiction. That this other reviewer is "tapping out" because the book correlates, very loosely, aliens and religion is a joke. That aliens could have had some relation to religion is impossible to avoid in any book that has aliens. Any book that has aliens will have some impact on religious beliefs. If that offends you, don't read science fiction or fantasy.<br/><br/>It is not a religious book at all....not even remotely so. If you like the series so far, continue. This book is much better than Contact in that the aliens are here and are in control.<br/><br/>

    Love it. Meyer rocks! Although Piper has become annoying, the story carries on well.

    "Milking the story !!!"

    I'm 5 books into this series and it's obvious he's just milking the shit out of this story. Great story, performance and character development, but Jesus Christ end it it already... NOT EVERY STORY DESERVES TO BE A SERIES... why does everything need to drawn out into multiple books now days? Get ready to just listen and listen about nothing and nothing... then every 2 hours there will be something important... Come on man!

    "Did not maintain interest"

    Lost interest in the story. This would have been better if it had been kept to a three part series.

    "Whatever these guys write - I'm in!"

    Sci-fi, aliens are here (!), great character development, what else could you ask for?! You'll hate when you have to hit the pause button!! Ray Porter is an awesome narrator, one of my favorites!
    Still waiting on The Beam Season 3, what's up with that Audible?

    "Pointless"

    This book and the next in the series are totally pointless and only designed to milk more money out of what could have been a great two series of books. Lost all interest and will not waste my money on the next book.

    Story
    "In a series continuity matters"

    As I'm listening to the second book in the series I hear the narrator mention that "Heather" remembers a lesson she learned while on the highway in Chicago. The problem with that is that Heather was never in Chicago on the highway. She made her way to Vail Colorado via Las Vegas from Los Angeles. Minor detail, but continuity matters in the series. Did the author farm out this work for someone else to write?

    Story
    "Too many books, not enough story"

    All the female characters are written as the same whiny, sarcastic person and the narrator has a variety of male voices but can only muster up one for every single woman in the books.

    While I do enjoy the story, there's barely any of it in each book. If the subsequent novels go down to $4 bucks a piece let me know, that's all I'm willing to invest at this point.
