Publisher's Summary

The HAWC team must race the clock to rescue the scientist, prevent the package from falling into the wrong hands...and save the world from a horror that should never have been woken.

An aeon ago, it crashed into the frozen Earth. Millennia later, it was removed from the icy soil, still functioning. They opened it...they shouldn’t have.

Alex Hunter - in the mission that turned him from a normal man into the weapon known as the Arcadian - and the elite team of soldiers known as the Hotzone All-Forces Warfare Commandos must enter a hostile country to rescue a defected Chechen researcher from the centre of a country at war.

But the HAWCs are not the only ones looking for the rogue scientist and the mysterious package he carries with him. A brutal and relentless killer and his death squad are on the trail, too - and they bring a savagery with them that Hunter and his team have never witnessed before in modern warfare.

Couldn’t get past the performance

I feel like this could have had more of a chance, but the way it was read was too off putting.

I really hop Sean isn’t having a stroke, but it sounded like he was slurring, even listening to it at 1.2 speed…it sounded better but I could still discern the more than occasional sloppy enunciation.

I’m sure I’ve heard him read some of the Matthew Riley books before and he’s never sounded like that.

a nice quick listen

well...that was fun ! Sean's narrative in the beginning had me concerned but after adjusting the speed he was back to his awesome self...like listening to an old friend. How interesting to find out how Alex became the Arcadian...brilliantly written and always a joy to listen to. Thank you Greig and Sean.

The Beginning

I really enjoy this book as it tells the story of how Alex Hunter became The Arcadian, and how the Russian's unleashed the Lifeform into our planet. Great narration again by Sean Mangan

Every story has a beginning

As far as origins go this didn’t fall short. I enjoyed it as I’m sure you will. Hopefully one day they will make this series of books into multiple movies and Greig Beck will be acknowledged for creating a character as memorable as Bruce Wayne, John McClane, Frank Castle, and Alex Hunter! The world needs and wants heroes and it all begins here.
