Publisher's Summary

Two hundred years ago, aliens invaded Earth. A violent war followed. The enemy won. Some of us escaped, most of us didn’t.

On Proxima they flourished - the invasion forgotten. On Earth we floundered - the horror began.

Their world is advanced, peaceful, and secure. Our world is broken, savage, and overrun.

A new invasion is coming. A hunger that has swallowed half the universe.

They don’t care which planet we live on. They want to end us all. But where there is life, there is hope. And where there is hope, there are heroes.

Sheriff. Marine. Pilot. Engineer. Centurion. Clone. This time, vengeance will be ours.

What a ride

Could not stop listening to this one. A rich universe with engaging characters. Cannot wait for the sequel.

NAILED IT

M R Forbes has created a deep universe punctuated with contrasting light made by various characters. Invasion is the beginning of the culmination of various series which I have been reading for years and I have to say it was all worth it/ The invasion series makes all of the other books feel like primers for something larger, as if I was reading for years just for this series. If you are a fan of all things Sci-fi but prefer well written and thought out series and good writing you would be an idiot not to try this!

a good listen

I really enjoyed the book and its take on futuristic combat. I think there is a little bit of everything for everyone. If you're a fan of apocalyptic literature, you will enjoy this tale.

Quite confusing

I enjoyed the story, although there are so many different races and beings involved that it is hard to work out who is who for much of the novel. A prequel would be worthwhile.

No

High on monsters and improbable fighting if those, low on plot and tech. Disappointing. The holes in the story is as big as the Grand Canyon. RC Bray awesome as usual.

Probably going to be my new favorite series

Picked this up on a whim because of The Bray, of course. After a confusing start, I freaking loved it. It's like an alien boinked a zombie in Wyoming with Longmire supervising. Next book please.

Pretty good

I think I have missed out on a lot of the lore for this story. Even so, good characters and R. C. Bray doing his usual excellent thing. Regarding the audio itself however, whomever checks to make sure there are no problems, better go back and listen to chapter 33. There is a big block of audio which repeats. Kind of throws the listener for a loop thinking it's a dream sequence or time warp initially.
I'll probably get the remaining books in the audio series when they are released.

Bleh

The only thing I liked about this title is R.C. Bray! The organization is confusing and the only person I cared about was part of a cliff hanger.

What a ending

At first it was hard to follow the different characters but within a few chapters it all fell into place. I loved the story and the very weird, interesting critters and people.
Couldn’t believe the ending!! I hope the next book will be soon.

M. R. Forbes is a genius!

Mr Forbes, you're a sadistic, cunning, sneaky SOB! Loved the book! Was glued to it from start to finish! The cliffhanger had me shouting at my phone! I just hope that book 2 comes out soon or I'll be tearing my beard out!

To the Lord Bray! You did it again dude! Another reason why I love hearing you narrate! You know how to create the right atmosphere, how to draw us in to a crazy psychotic situation! Sir, you're a legend!

A struggle

really confused about who was who for a lot of the book. Not enough back story for each of the characaters. Coming from the exforce series this book was a struggle
