Publisher's Summary

AL:ICE: Captain Jacob Thomas USMC is a divorced combat veteran just trying to get his life back on track. Returning to the Marine Corps after a failed attempt at reconciliation with his estranged wife, Jake volunteers for an experiment that catapults him into a future where humanity has been stripped of 200 years of technological advancements and more than half its population. With the help of a faceless benefactor named Alice, he starts a journey to put Earth back on a path to recovery.

AL:ICE-9: With the help of the ALICE systems, Jake Thomas has successfully faced off with the hostile NeHaw three times. As he works to assemble a space fleet to address the expanding NeHaw aggression, terrestrial challenges at home continue to pile up, and the threat of a two-front war looms ahead.

AL:ICE: Resurrection: With unexplained transmissions originating in Europe, and an alien visitor with questionable motives, Jake is awash in new challenges on Earth and in space. Can the activity in Europe be a sign of troubles to come, or is it an indication of allies waiting to be discovered?

AL:ICE: Space War: Jake finds himself once again fighting a two-front war, one in space and one on the home front.

Couldn't make it beyond a couple of hours

Just terrible, with so much quality around books like this just can't compete. I was trying to give it a chance, but everything is just bland, lacking in all areas including characterisation, descriptions, emotion and plot - an interesting premise but ruined by unbelievable decisions being taken by the lead character (even in the genre of futuristic fiction) . Two hours in and no compelling reason to commit any more of my time to this. Read the other reviews first and note that there are some recommendations for much better choices in them (wish I had done a bit more research but 42 hours for one credit seemed a bargain!).
Narration is as good as it can be with such limiting material.

White American conservative racist harem fantasy

Post apocalyptic America obliterated by alien invasions, but there is not a single non white American in whole book. By victim of circumstance the hero has a harem but really it's not his fault, he is just a good conservative guy. All the harem are white American heteroexual females. As a harem fantasy it's lame. The science is also sloppy.

Creepy Naughty Sunday School Junkfood

This is decent if you just need something new to listen to, otherwise I’d steer clear. The series doesn’t really get exciting at any point, there’s no high drama, the casting call stereotypes are awful, just about every possible punch is pulled and the erotic parts are frequent yet only implied. Even the AI backbone of the series never amounts more to more than super personal-assistant. There’s just a sea of predictable characters doing predictable things with the main character having coincidentally epic amounts of sex. Sometimes with just slightly yet still underage girls. Yeah. There’s that too. Cringe.

Guns, AI and polygamy

Well, I didn't hate it. I do have a few issues with this story, it is very sparse on description. I could not tell you what any of the locations looked like. The characters seemed a little 2D but did improve throughout the series.

On the plus side, the basic concept is a good one and the narration is solid, it just didn't get me excited, sorry.

Also..... St Pauls cathedral.. erm, how can I put this... its not a Catholic church, nor does it have nuns. OK so this lack of research is a tiny thing but it made me angry.
