Hardcore scifi fan from a galaxy far far away.
The series as a whole is worth it. The strenuous effort to enter twine every myth of history into a alien conspiracy is good spaghetti. However the individual books can be painful. The 'action' seanes can be pointless, jumpy and painful. I recommend the read -you will just have to put some work into it to enjoy the series.
This book was fun and I enjoyed listening to it. Might listen a second time for kicks.
Listener of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Intrigue (not romance), Historical Fiction and very eclectic in her literary wanderings.
If you're looking for deep conspiracy/alien cover up books stop here.
This novel is very much what I call Brain Candy and it's action packed, low on accuracy and high on TV movie fun.
It's fun, easy to listen and just as easy to walk away from too.
The reader makes it better for certain.
Hey, I had a busy day and I was looking for something to listen while working and this fit the bill.
As other readers noted: the ending is a little to snappy and neat. I felt like the author rushed to resolve things and lost perspective. If there's a sequel, I'll think about picking it up.
I am actually surprised how even action can be made boring! Looks like the author gathered all interesting tidbits and jumbled them together in a series of cliches, spoiling what could be an interesting subject...
I'm pretty tired of the amazing number of alien movies and books coming out these days. This one is a little older and I really enjoyed where it went. It certainly kept guessing as I did not really figure things out til pretty close to the end. If you enjoy sci-fi and the alien theme, you'll likely enjoy this book.
I have enjoyed this series a lot so far, it has a good mix of action and Sci/fi which anyone who likes this genre should enjoy. I think the narrator has done a very good job bringing the different characters to life in the stories.

Something from an author I know.

It just stopped at the point when things should have really gotten going. Dragged at first, then when it picked up

Yes, there were a lot of details that one could pick more up the second time around. I listened to is on my commute to and from work. It kept my interest and took the boredom out of the drive.
When they got in the space ship and headquarters in the mountain
Kept my interest
Worth the cost
Don't know, did not read printed version.
All dialog about the flying machines
Good story and it was narrated very well.
