    Dr. Lisa Duncan and Special Forces officer Mike Turcotte know better than anyone that no secret is safe for long - especially one that offers untold power. Case in point: No sooner does Turcotte’s elite Area 51 team uncover a dormant alien ship in Earth's orbit than a group of alien-human hybrids seizes it and uses its technology to commandeer a satellite array bristling with nuclear missiles. Now they’re demanding that humankind hand over the key to an ancient stash of alien technology…or watch an entire continent be reduced to atomic rubble.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    While the concept and story are really quite good, this book was incredibly difficult to listen to as the Narrator completely butchered the natural cadence of human speech. Spitting words and sentences as if reading for a slam poetry competition, Dove seems to have no concept of the purpose of punctuation to denote pauses, breaks, and the flow of language.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Eric G. Dove’s performances?

    Absolutely not


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    The oldest of the children drafted from humanity's devastated planet, Joe is impressed into service by the alien Congressional Ground Force - and becomes the unwitting centerpiece in a millennia-long alien struggle for independence. Once his training begins, one of the elusive and prophetic Trith appears to give Joe a spine chilling prophecy that the universe has been anticipating for millions of years: Joe will be the one to finally shatter the vast alien government known as Congress. And the Trith cannot lie...but first Joe has to make it through bootcamp.

    What made the experience of listening to Forging Zero the most enjoyable?

    I have read this masterpiece and it's sequel twice in the past year and I can say without the slightest hesitation that I have no regrets about buying the audible version as well. Miss King delivers a sci-fi masterwork that is easily among the greats for it's creativity, innovation, and character development.
