Summary

In the year 2280, an alien fleet stole our Earth.

For 50 years they hunted us. For 50 years they enslaved us. For 50 years we lived in fear.

Nothing lasts forever.

They can try to quell us. They can try to break us. They can chase us to the ends of the Earth. They can chase us to the ends of the universe.

We've won our first battle. We've earned our first taste of hope. What was theirs will soon be ours.

We are the rebellion. Our story continues.

An exciting continuation to the series

The story moves forward on two fronts, earth-bound and space-bound encounters. It expands on the aliens hierarchical caste system and Darwinian approach for advancement. We also find out more about their technology and motivations for the human cloning program. The battle encounters both on earth and in space are exciting and often have unpredictable outcomes that adds to the heightened interest in the follow-on unfolding of events.

Very much interested in what follows in book 3 after the final unexpected revelation at the end.

Loved it!

I was waiting for this and only as I checked out Jeff's latest had I realised it was out. Why can't there be a follow button for a series, haha :)

Anyway, so yes. This was a really great continuation of the series. We pick back up with both sides of the story, on Earth and in Space.

Donovan and his team are going through some awful conditions and worse situations to get to the resistance that is left. There were some moments here where I cried, it's so extremely well written that we get to know and love the character in book 1 and yet M.R Forbes delves even deeper with them and makes us feel even more! This book totally pulled my heart out.

Gabrielle and the old Gator... just superb characterisation. Though they go through so much as father and son, as a team on the Magellan they pull out no stops to protect and survive.

This was a totally nail-biting audiobook, the fights the action, the love and people lost along the way. A total must listen.

Only grip would be that the ending was just as emotional as the rest of the book! and I was like OMG what the... you can't leave it like that. You just can't.... haha

Awesome narrator and author, I want the next one. Like now!

you have me hooked

Where does Weapons of War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

in top 20

What was one of the most memorable moments of Weapons of War?

each where characters over come and understand their differences.

Which character – as performed by Jeff Hays – was your favorite?

oh Gabriel for certain... but then you can't give up on Gator

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

sorry - can't pick just one

Any additional comments?

looking forward to next

Getting better

Better than the first book. The superior clone warriors still seem like storm troopers to me. They die easy & cant hit shit despite being physically superior & can see in the dark with super plasma weapons. Probably won't buy the third one. Just killing time until the books I really want to read come out.

Great listen!

Where does Weapons of War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best I have had.

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

I could not stop listening to this and was wishing I had the next book!
