Publisher's Summary

For Amber Lee, a lawyer working in London, the thought of the approaching long bank holiday weekend fills her with joy - a chance to catch up with friends and generally relax. But as the weekend gets underway, news starts filtering through of unidentified objects entering Earth's atmosphere. As Saturday morning unfolds, Amber will soon wish that the long weekend never arrived....

An inexplicable celestial event....

When two unidentified objects are tracked heading toward Earth's polar regions, NORAD launches interceptor ballistic missiles to neutralize the threat. The incoming objects appear to take evasive action, however, and ground-based seismographs later confirm that the objects have made a soft impact at the poles.

Earth's water vaporized....

Amber Lee, originally from Wales, but now working as a lawyer in London, awakes in the middle of the night following a disturbing dream. The next morning, she, along with the rest of the world, hears about the strange, and unique, celestial event that occurred during the early hours of the morning.

Civilization in ruins....

Twenty-four hours after the event, things take a sinister turn. As Amber prepares for the bank holiday weekend, she notices weird phenomena occurring in the luxury apartment building she is renting from her absent uncle. Water seems to be defying gravity, and the building appears to be abandoned. Amber quickly realizes that a cataclysm of immeasurable proportion has struck London, and she sets off on a quest to reach home and to find out what has happened. She soon discovers, however, that the world may have changed forever, and her journey home soon turns into a fight for her very survival....

Vaporized is for anyone who enjoys a mix of science fiction, adventure, thrills, and horror. Suspend your disbelief for a while, jump into Amber's shoes, and enjoy the ride!

A new type of Alien Invasion

The author does a great job bringing us into a world where a new type of alien has arrived and things aren't going well for the human race. The narrator does an excellent job bringing the characters to life and keeping the listener engaged with the story. The story is excellent and there are plenty of twists and turns and mystery throughout. I loved it and can't wait to listen to book two.

quiet invasion for H2O. liquid? alien symbiote.

bit of slow start. heroine okay but becomes more resilient as book proceeds.
Western Europe overcome as it sleeps. be interesting to see US and Asian response as alien weapon of mass destruction manifests.
heroine somehow resistant to wepon effects, no explanation.
aliens symbiotes manifest early in book, evolve and I am intrigued
narrator okay, decent range of voice. as characters get introduced, will reevaluate
good start to series. enough so that I will begin next book in series.

Something lands from outer space and things happen

Vaporized
Apocalyptic-Adventure Thriller
By: Simon Rosser
Narrated by: Margie Valine
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary. Objects came in from outer space but doesn't land as expected. Other things happen that is not expected! No zombies, which makes it a good book to me! Tired of zombies! Lol! It has an original idea, suspense, and chills.
The narration was not a performance but just someone reading, at least that's the way it sounded.

Difficult to listen to ~ Set in London but...

Difficult to listen to ~ Set in London but...uses an American narrator. Not a good match. The narrator can not do an English accent. It is painful to listen to and enunciation is cut off, where you try to decipher what she meant. I am going to read this book instead of listening to it. Please pick appropriate narrator for the story.

A Good story ruined by the performance

This was a really good story but I am afraid that the narrator completely ruined it for me. The accents were completely hopeless and the mispronounciations really annoying. Why can't British narrators be used for books based in the UK? I can honestly say I have never heard a worse Welsh accent it was almost laughable.
