Summary

Something has travelled for a billion years to find us - and now it has. 

In space, Commander Mitch Granger and his crew are nearing the end of their scientific mission - along with their covert satellite photography for the military. As they prepare for reentry, an unknown object emerges from the void: the name given to deep, dark space. The object proves impossible to evade. The crew have one option left - to bring the fragment aboard. 

Immediately, all contact with the shuttle is lost. NASA watches helplessly as their craft breaks orbit and heads back to Earth, where it crashes high up in the Revelation Mountains of Alaska. The space agency puts together an emergency recovery team, but the Russians also want the US military photographic data on board. 

The race is on to be the first to the crash site, nearly 10,000 feet up in one of the most inhospitable places on Earth. But there is another problem. Satellite images show that something else came down in the shuttle, something moving about when no one should be alive. And that seems to be growing at an alarming rate. 

NASA needs help and protection. Send in the HAWCs. But even HAWC captain Alex Hunter, the last supersoldier of the Arcadian program, has never come up against a threat so old and from so far....

not my favourite...

I'm a fan, a big fan but this just didn't work for me, and i honestly don't know why, am going to listen all over again in a month or so to see if it's just me being a dick.....

Excellent story

Another excellent story which had me shouting at times especially in the tense moments. I can't wait for the next story.

Don't Understand all the positive reviews

The narrator, Sean Mangan, was really off his game with this one. He usually does a good job but in this book, he consistently mispronounced words, sounded out of breath making it sound like he was ending a sentence when he wasn't and at times seemed as if he was gasping for breath. The book itself was really not that great. The plot seemed to be taken from several other books/movies and just mashed together. I would say that it's a rip off of Aliens, Tremors, The Thing and other people's work. Very disappointing.

outstanding

I give this series 4 stars instead of five so it like the series can grow.
1) the stories in this series (for me are outstanding and fire my imagination of what if and what is)
2) the characters I enjoyed getting to know for a long time. but towards the last couple stories the insight into their characters has become somewhat lacking. as if the author does not trust us to accept where they are going or has not mapped out his plans. and as he has brought in new and older characters we should be brought up to speed. not left with cookie crumbs. the timeline should remain smooth. this area of book 7 I have the most problems with. with one exception. I think insight into the hammer appears to have become clear. unless this is all misdirection.
3- the future of this series looks both promising and exciting. can not wait.
4- one criticism. the blow by blow of each battle is a bit much almost like a word count. it is boring and time consuming. and takes time from the story. and the story is what we want.

Horrible narrator!

Storyline was so so, but the narrator was terrible. At some points it sounded like he may have been drunk because it seemed like he was slurring his words. His pronunciation of certain words was annoying also. If you can put up with the narration the book is an OK listen.

After How Many Books...

They are magazines, not clips. This and many other factual errors relegate this book and all the rest in the series to very light entertainment.
If you want something more real, Jonathan Mayberry’s Joe Ledger series delivers.

The best yet

Very interesting book. Creepy, suspenseful, and fast paced. The characters are great, as always.
Absolutely loved the brief mention of another series. Will be eager to see how that plays out.
The epilogue was fantastic!! Made me raise my eyebrows in surprise.
Can't wait for the next book!

Sean Mangan is a very good narrator, even if a few words are pronounced peculiarly.

One issue...

I love the series and all the work that goes in, yet I do feel sometimes that for a lot of the characters who repeat, their disbelief at the fantastical is unreal....unless the author wants us to scream at the characters like we are seeing them onscreen.

Not his best

The idea behind this story was up to par with Mr. Beck's excellent style but, unlike him, the story dragged with continuous descriptions of the creatures encountered to the point of boredom ... something I thought I'd never say about one of his books!!

Dangers that are out of this world

The dangers in this book are out of this world. Alex Hunter is up against more than just agents of a hostile nation as he faces something sent from the Void. Beck flexes his creative muscles with the creepy crawlies spawned by his imagination and birthed in this book. Readers are in for as many chills as they are thrills. And as always, we're left wanting more. On to book #8!

The best yet!

I never get tired of the series. This is one of the best on the ground science-fiction series I’ve ever read and you should definitely give it a chance. The level of intelligence that goes into writing these books is inspiring and the level of satisfaction I get from reading them is off the charts!
