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.

Disappointing

I was looking forward to reading this book as I enjoy the "wake up in the future" theme, but this was just disappointing. The writing was lacklustre, unbelievable and uninteresting. Worse, it was sexist to the point of making me groan out loud on a regular basis. Like a previous reviewer I couldn't get past about 2 hours in.

The women (aside from the boringly subservient, female-designed "because it will make people more comfortable" AI) are "damsels in distress" needing rescue by the "hero" who describes them by their hair colour, breasts and body shape/size. He barely describes other men at all. He even mentions the women's night-clothes barely concealing their "assets", because of course... objects.

I couldn't help but feel I was reading a 1980's Mills and Boon. Returning for credit

Mormom Mills & Boon almost scifi

Perfect conservative solider wakes up in the future to collect and protect his harem from the bad city gangs, aliens, and ... I really don't care. It just kept getting worse. I had high hopes, and even squinted past the "submissive AI, that waited for her MAN" but yikes. Just no.

Average at best.

Could only face the first book. There is absolutely nothing at stake in this story, no characters are particularly relatable or likable and it just seems to bounce from one unlikely triumph to another interspersed with eye rolling relationships. Which is a real shame as the premise whilst not ground breaking in any way still had real promise only to be ruined by a teenagers daydream.

15 year old's wet dream

Super basic, easy to predict. Women are objects, the enemy are idiots and he's a hero without compare.

Good

I enjoyed the story. Narrator did a good job. I'll keep an eye out for other work by this author.
The main character is a bit overpowered and isn't ever in any real danger. Claims of this story being misogynistic are ridiculous.

Terrible

Obviously a male fantasy being told….But not done well. Full of eye rolling cliche sci fi garbage. Narrator had terrible female voices. Ugh. How this story got dragged into subsequent books is beyond my comprehension.

I'm really getting into scifi books, and this is a great example of good entertainment, with an enticing story
