Starting off slow but really brining it home during the second half, Indian Hill is a gory, grown up version of the hunger games with Aliens rather than an oppressive government. Throughout it all Mike Talbot keeps his wise ass cracks and sarcasm as he fights his fellow man and aliens to warn the earth of the coming invasion. If you’re a fan of the characters in the Zombie Fallout series I think you’ll find this series just as engaging.
As always Sean Runnette does a great job of bringing the story to life. From the New England accent to the halting alien speak, he can do it all!
Tell us about yourself! I am the author of "Over the Moon" and "Falling Off the Planet." They are both YA Sci-fi fantasy romance.
I couldn't finish it. It started out okay, but then it got worse and worse to the point that I didn't care how it ended. Sex and violence and unspeakable acts are just not for me.

If you like a lots of violence, unrealistic dialog, and disappointing SF, this is the book for you.
The dialog was so unreal, that I kept wondering why I should continue.
Considering the dialog and story, the Narrator did an OK job.
The scientific, military, and government authorities were disappointing..
I'm beginning to think the Audible rating is useless when this Book can be rated 3 or better.
This is not the worst book I have ever listened too, but it sure is near the bottom. The story rambles on and on and I never really cared if our hero survived or not. There is a whole secondary story of his friends that never goes anywhere. At first I wasn't sure if it was the performance (the delivery was so flat), but after the first couple of hours it became evident that the writing that was the real problem.
I had read the reviews of others and kept waiting for the story and writing to improve, but it never did. I hate to say anything negative about a book, because I know that a writer pours his heart and soul into the work, but this time I just couldn't keep quiet.

I just finished listening to the Zombie Fallout series and I was finding myself reluctant to begin a series that has Michael Talbot doing anything but killing Zombies...I mean, aliens? Seriously? Oh Come On!!! However...my doubts were completely unfounded. This series is absolutely fantastic! Just as good as Zombie Fallout and Lycan Fallout. I definitely feel this book was well worth the credit spent. Also, there is something special about the Mark Tufo/Sean Runnette SUPER DUO. Anything they produce together is nothing short of magical :-) and I would be more than willing to spend a credit just to listen to Sean Runnette narrate Mark Tufo's grocery list! So stop reading reviews and just click the confirm button. Your search is over...you will not regret purchasing this audible!!!
Not as good as his Zombie Fallout series even though it recycles some of the characters.
Interesting book that i found funny at times.
Not a zombie book for those wondering.
Worth the credit in my opinion.
Anyone that hasn't listened to mark tufo's zombie fallout series i think may like this book.
Michael was obviously :)
I first got onto mark tufo through his zombie fallout series, after listening to that series it makes this book seem like a cheap knock off (even tho i think this book was written before zombie fallout,and both books use the same characters) I just couldnt get really into this book because some of the characters in this book are completely different to how I have grown to like them in the fallout series....
I enjoy sci fi, fantasy, or really powerful and inspiring biographies
Good story... Sort of old-fashioned feel but a good read none the less...you won't be sorry.

If you like space battles and such this is not a series for you. The author does a lot of character building. This is not bad in and of it self... However, it goes on and on... Also in later books there is a lot of what I would call "Weak Women". There is a situation where one of the women who had already been through hell could not take decisive action by killing a obliviously evil guy... This same thing repeats several times...
I bought four books in the series. Listened to the first two... Started on the third but could not finish it... Returned three and four. (Audible -- thanks for this option..)
It's like Zombie Fallout only with aliens. What's not to like about that concept? Mike Talbot in spaaaaace. Seriously though, it has all the attitude and quippiness of his other novels paired with a rich and exciting story. Can't wait to start the next one.
