Well written, with good character development. Narration was well done. I once wrote a very short story in an English class with this sort of concept so it was especially interesting to me. Writing style reminded me a bit of Koontz one of my favourites so looking forward to more from this author.
An involving story that's got some scenes of violence that put it beyond teenage fare, and a teenager's story line that makes it a bit outside an adult's interest. Not sure where it fits.
I did enjoy it though. Well narrated.
This book is a new take on an old story. Roswell is something we all know about, and has been written about before, but this take is new. I like it, and it's a good start with some engaging side plots. Some you see coming but the reach of the others brings you right back in.
It's hard to pick a comparable book. Though in a way it somewhat reminds me to a curious mix between a few tv shows. The primary is The 5000 because of the underlying plots in the book and what happens with the teenagers.
I really liked Jack. I suspect there's something more to the character, and you can hear it in the performance. Very well performed.
Some parts lulled but all in all it was a good book.
This book has some slow parts, some wtf parts, and even a few that make you slap your forehead at how some of the character's behave. However, for all the grumbling the teenagers might make you do, the other characters exhibit an engaging intelligence that in the end, looks to be aging those kids fast. Good read, new take on an old story, can't wait to "read" the other books in the series.
As a Star Wars/Star Trek fan thi book is a natural for me. It kept me spell bound ans also cost me to lose some sleep as I couldn't stop listeneing to it at night.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was so disappointed when it ended I had to get the next book just to see what would happen. I did notice however, that it seemed similar to the TV show Roswell.
Not that I don't love dystopian teen fiction but this one breaks the mold with highly researched and intelligent writing. It's a fun read, intense and addictive. Highly recommend it
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was surprised that characters and storyline held my interest from start to finish. Its a story a a small group of very likable intelligent young adults who happen to stumble onto alien technology. They appear to wisely keep their discovery secret while getting drawn into situations best left to secret agents.
I found myself rooting for the main characters and liked how they ingeniously applied the new alien technology to solve their problems.
I thought the book was well paced and I never lost interest. I liked the mix of high school antics, international terrorism and secret agent heroics.

I have listened to the whole series and other spin-off books. I would highly recommend all the books in this series. I now wait for anything new from this author and quickly pick it up and listen to it.

Yes, because the author does a great job of building a world of mystery and suspense while adding in the perfect amount of action and thrills! The entire series is a good investment of time and I am kind of sad it is over now! Definitely will listen to it again in the future.
