Summary

The Invasion Trilogy contains Books 1-3 of the Invasion series.

Fight for your freedom. Fight for your planet. Fight for your life.

The Invasion, Book 1:

What should have been a relaxing hunting trip for Sergeant AJ Cole, his kid brother Remmy, and two Marines from his unit turns into an all-out brawl with enemies from another planet.

An invasion is being planned in the secluded woods of West Virginia. Ravagers from a distant world have set up a gateway, allowing them to move their forces through space. Earth is their next conquest. When push comes to shove, Earth's Marines are shoving back and taking the fight to the enemy. Outnumbered and outgunned, these Marines will look to each other for the will to go on. Allies will be found along the way, as well as a haunting prophecy for one of their own.

Stand Your Ground, Book 2:

And the only hope of defeating the invading Sarkan Empire and saving Earth lies in a frozen wasteland of a planet far from Earth. Marine Space Corps Two have been given the mission of locating and securing the weapon that will enable Earth to defeat the Sarkans once and for all. Only to gain the weapon, they must first end a civil war and survive one of their own going rogue. The clock is ticking, and time is running out for Lieutenant AJ Cole. The fate of Earth rests in his hands.

Fight Back, Book 3:

The only hope for victory lies in Space Marine Corps Two’s youngest recruit - Remmy Cole. He is the Prophet and Gatekeeper foretold in an ancient prophecy. Aeon, the Sarkan Emperor, will do anything to get his hands on him. The conflict approaches, but Earth does not have the advantage. There is only one way to survive. Use the Emperor’s own tactics against him. Will Earth be forced to surrender, or will Remmy be able to use all the technological advances only his mind can control to win the fight for humanity?

Harness your courage and prepare to walk through the gateway.

Teenager book

It’s okay but it's mostly for teenagers.
Easy listening, there are opportunities for more books in the series.

Disappointed

I read several reviews before I bought this audio book and I have now lost all faith in people to give accurate reviews. I really tried to enjoy this but there were a few things i just couldn't get past causing me to abandon the book about three hours in. First the narrator speaks like he is reading to a group of 6 year olds and his delivery just doesn't seem to fit with military sci fi to me. Second and more importantly this book is written about US Marines and having spent eight years in the Marine Corps I can tell you that the author has no idea how Marines speak or act. His characters repeatedly refer to themselves as soldiers which marines would NEVER Do. Soldiers are Army, not Marines. He is supposed to be a sergeant but his squad mates refer to him a couple of times as their C.O. which is short for Commanding Officer. He is at most a squad leader and infantry Marines might refer to their platoon commander, most likely a lieutenant, as their C.O. but they would never refer to another enlisted Marine as their C.O.. One of the Marines has a beard which is unlikely even if they are Raiders since they aren't deployed, Ok maybe a Marine might grow some stubble while on leave but a beard is unlikely. Also a female Marine Sniper in a Raider or Force Recon unit is lovely and progressive but not accurate, If you are going to write about Marines, at least do some research and I don't mean watch movies about Marines. They mess it up all the time. I mean talk to actual Marines and go from there. You may enjoy this if you have no actual knowledge of Marines but unfortunately for me and this Audio book, I do.

Love the Trilogy!

I love it when In can sit down and listen to a fantastic story all at one time. The story is charged with a lot of adventure and actie. Chris Ciulla have the book so much life to the story has he unfolds the story for us. Jonathan Yanze and Apryl Baker have so much talent they out shine other Sci-fi authors.

Great Summer Reading

To begin, the performance of this trilogy is really fun. The reader breathes life into the characters, making the listening experience quite enjoyable as the characters are really alive. Each person is unique and fun. The writing is fast paced and self-aware. While I could consider this story to be "space-opera lite" where other authors would go into great detail explaining the science behind some effect, these writers would make a snarky comment after something "magical" occured. This is a great summer listen - fast and fun.
