Summary

New Amerland was designed and built by survivors of the Incident. Those were the people who, by some miracle, managed to get underground before the bombs fell; they managed to lock away themselves and their families and to survive the worst nuclear attack in history. A lucky few would be selected by lottery and handed a ticket for free. At least 50 percent failed the test and were fated to die on their desolate and degraded planet.

A sci-fi mystery

There are all the ingredients for a great novel here,: action, characters, love interests, sadness, and sci-fi. Somehow though it all comes together, and it gets a real end without cliffhangers, I didn’t enjoy it as much as the elements would predict. I had trouble drumming up empathy for the characters. The narrator tried way, way too hard most of the time. And some characters had dominant traits that never really came into the story. But, it’s a solid listen. It has great plot that keeps you guessing. And you may have more empathy for the characters thsn I did. I received this audiobook for free in exchange for a review.

Thank you.

I don't write well so writing a review is difficult. I have always read a lot, tho. I have been reading Science Fiction for 40 years and honesty most if what is written today does not appeal to me but I did like this book. I guess what I liked the most was the story and felt as if I was watching old Flash Gordon or a cool b space movie from the 80s. I thought the story was interesting and could picture it. I hope the author keeps working hard on this craft. I left the review to encourage the author to keep working at it. Some good ideas here that needed some better development but was enjoyable. Would be good for kids.

Fear of the unknown how one or more react to it!

In the future earth and humankind are about to end and must find a new place to live or die nine Arks have left earth to find a new planet and another one leaves real soon. What happen to first nine did they find a planet or were they all lost and destroyed. Earth is facing a alien race who are afraid of what could happen if humanity is allowed to leave the earth and survive in space or on a new planet and so they decide to do whatever it takes to keep humanity on earth even murder of a person or destruction of the Arks. I personally like the storyline and the author and narrator did a great job in telling the story the only flaw I saw was the author did not give me more information on what happen to earth to make unliveable. That point was confusing yes the sun is going supernova yet she speaks of attacks on the earth was there a world war or civil war. These may be minor part but it fill the reader or listener into what happen and why it happen. I like to hear details because the story comes to a live more and you can understand a person or person react the way they do.
