Publisher's Summary

We were watching the sky. They were already here.

The pulse hits without warning.

In one harrowingly destructive instant, a mysterious seismic pulse in the Scottish Highlands rips away all semblance of global security.

Complacency grew in the years since Dan McCarthy brought humanity into contact with intelligent aliens, but those days are gone.

When peace is shattered, fear takes over.

The stakes rise without mercy.

As the pulse's chaos spreads, it becomes painfully clear that Dan's teenage daughter Piper - a child born like no other - might hold humanity's only hope of averting total disaster.

The danger to Earth is imminent. The danger to Piper McCarthy hardly bears thinking about.

And this threat isn’t coming from the stars. This time, it’s been here all along....

New discoveries, conspiracies, and threats like nothing you've ever imagined - dive into Not Alone: The Awakening today!

Note for listeners: Stay tuned for the next book in the series Not Alone: Hidden Wonder.

great start to the next trilogy! i need book 8 NOW

Craig sure knows how to write compelling stories and has a spooky ability to write his diverse and broad range of characters with great authenticity!
i love the Not Alone series, and am always glad when Craig decides to expand into another trilogy for us. the only downside is that book 8 is not out yet!
one note for Craig: being the book was set in Scotland, i was sad you didn't write in a minor male Scottish character (a journalist perhaps, like you did with ths Austalian journo) so you could voice him, with your amazing accent! next time maybe... i can only hope ♡

Not my favorite....

I love the series, but those one was underwhelming. The story was boring and predictable. Hopefully the next one in the series picks back up.

Absolutely fantastic!

I've listened to all of the series here and James Patrick Cronin truly embodies the characters. Masterful storytelling by Craig A. Falconer. A masterpiece!

Everyone's favorite Colorado family is back !!!!

Everyone's favorite Colorado family is back and better than ever.
Piper is a teenage now and with age his powers are stronger than anyone could have imagine. She really is a formidable human being.
New characters introduced on this book are great and I'm so glad to see all of our old friends back again. Dan and Emma are as usual right in the middle of everything, as usual
The cliffhanger at the end...wow! cant wait for the next book which I'm sure is going to be great.

As always James Patrick Conan performance is superb! I love his Scottish accents (I had to re listen to those parts to understand what they were saying and everything hahahaha). After NA6 I was wondering if there was ever a NA/ what would Piper voice sound like. It did not disappoint.

one of the best of the series

I felt like this book got the series back to the level of the first two books. It feels more serious and grown up than the last couple in the series, this is about the world not just Dan and his family and small town.

A step up on the previous book

I would have rated the performance higher if not for the appalling Welsh accent! It's a difficult accent to master but as such a key character featured throughout the book, James Chronin could have put more research and practice into it.

Listen to a few YouTube videos on welsh accents before the next book please James. Other than that, you do a masterful job.

I can’t believe this series just keeps getting better

I remember when I first listened to Not Alone. I loved it, but thought that was the end. It was a few years later when I realised that there were sequels. Now I’m on book 7 with two more on the way. What an amazing journey this is! Thanks, Craig!

Accents

Absolute belly laughs from the Scottish and particularly the Welsh accents, absolutely obscure mixture of scot, asian, cockney and nothing Welsh whatsoever. James Cronin really should have put the effort in and researched this. Story was great though, love this series.

Did anything actually happen?

I gave the highest rating to book 6 in this series. I've had a really hard journey with this one. I'm not sure anything besides the headache happens to anyone in the entire book. I think the author has resurrected something that had already reached a finale.
