Sadly average

Some good ideas here but it all falls sorta flat. The author jumps between characters constantly re-telling the same events over and over, which can be painful as it only affects the story by dragging it out.

Gripping unique story

while I love the story I dingy like the constant changing of points of view and especially to boring ones. still the story was exciting enough to keep me in the series, I do already great power creep from the humans threatening to break my suspension of disbelief

I loved this. Could not stop listening.

I spent many a time sitting in the car after arriving at my destination, as I just had to hear a little more.
This is now one of my favourite first contact / invasion stories. What a fun action packed ride. I can't wait to get into the next book.

Unnecessary and Stupid romance ruined book

Mr. Cole seems to be the kind of author who doesn't have much experience writing about romance. It started with a bang and I thought WOW this is going to be a good one. I couldn't have been more wrong. The romantic relationship in this book ruined it for me. It was poorly written and did not advance the plot in anyway. It was complete sappy crap. "Jake looked into her beautiful crystal blue eyes and fell another day in love with her". Really? Why just another day? Why not another 2 or 3 days? Hell, why not another week or another month? Of course, the female protagonist was the typical beautiful blue eyed bombshell blonde. No brunettes for this author. I couldn't finish the book. I just could not do it. I'd pass over this book for something better written.

Fanfuckingtastic!!!

I can't stress enough how much I loved this story. this isn't your campy Roland Emmerich alien invasion story, it's smart SciFi, Dean Cole is on fire with this series. R.C. Bray is a genius narrator. he can get inside these characters heads, becoming them, making them all believable, putting the listener in the story. I can't wait for the next audiobook to be released!

As per usual for a great story read by R. C. Bray.

Just great. A new, yet refreshing and simplistic plot. Based on the "Aliens Attack" theme, but not as simple as one might think. There are pre-stories that lend sci-fi credibility. There are post-apocalyptic undertones which do not become overbearing. Good writing. Amazing narration. Fun, interesting more than with a read (listen).

More, more, more!

This was a fantastic, exhilarating story! I can't wait for RC Bray's recordings of the additional books to come out!

it would be best to listen to First Contact prior to this one for additional background, but it's not required.

interesting premise that is never expanded upon

starts out all right but once the curtain is pulled back it's like a pair of socks after you open a Christmas present.

Meh

Mildly interesting story, However, I am having a hard time with the dialogue, it's pedestrian and predictable. I can't even finish this one. there are better books like Expeditionary Force, The Synchronicity War, Fear the Sky

the pacing is all wrong

sadly, you have to wait about 2h before things get interesting. by "interesting", i refer to 1. the alien villains making an appearance, and 2. the alien villains being the only interesting characters in the book. sure, there's action in the first two hours, sort of an "x-files lite" episode including a shadowy car chase, but seriously...

it's good for authors to experiment with different parts of a genre in order to develop a compelling storyline, character arcs, and so on; however, successful books have to actually deliver on those elements. this book did not.

it is a hard slog to finish this work...

brilliant

very enjoyable edge of the seat. mr Cole set a bench mark with previous books he smashes it again but gets even better. As for the narration, its Mr Bray so there no one better. ( but dont tell him that)

So many clichés....

A struggle to listen to, RC Bray is great but the story, the female character (the only female character), the one liners and the bad cliffhangers are just eye rolling.

Excellent Alien Adventure

I really enjoyed this excellent and very exciting alien attack story, I found the plot very fast paced with believable characters. The idea that we actually have worked with aliens to advance our technology and that we were related to them was really thought provoking.
This audiobook was truly enhanced by the usual excellent narration of R. C. Bray.

I wasn't sure about getting this book, it's not my usual pick of Sci-fi, but with R.C. Bray narrating I was pretty sure it was gonna kick ass and damn I was right! can't wait for the follow-up I in this for the long haul now

Not bad

Story quite engaging with maybe too much Hollywood ish moments, but outstanding performance of R. C. Bray makes up for it. If you want an alien attack story then go for it

Not good

First the positive, superb reading from R C Bray, kept the atmosphere going.

The premise is good and the cover bigs it up with Independence Day plus X-Files claim. My problem was the flakey characters and simplistic good / bad representation. Then there is the significant overlap with Independence Day, I could almost see Will Smith as the fighter pilot. And the female character OMG ... I won’t say any more as it cuts into the plot. I skipped quite a bit of the story and even listened on fast forward, I was able to pick up easily when re-starting. Says a lot I think.
