    The world had become used to the metahumans - people sometimes perfectly ordinary, but sometimes quite extraordinary in appearance - who mostly worked with their governments as high-powered peace officers, fighting crime, and sometimes fighting rogue metahumans who had become super-criminals. Then that comfortable world ended in just one terrifying day.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Invasion to be better than the print version?

    In some ways, this is better because the narrator is excellent at the various accents necessary in order to tell this story well. In some ways not, because the narrator is so careful to read precisely and intelligibly that he sometimes sounds clunky--there isn't a good 'flow' to his reading. He's great with dialogue, but the rest of his style took some getting used to. I'm certainly enjoying the audiobook, though.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ohhh, tough. I think I have two favourites: Red Saviour and Red Djinni. Not because I like the colour red, but because they both make me laugh. A lot.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think my favourite has to be when Red Saviour, Belladonna Blue, and Victoria Victrix confronted the drug dealers. Red Saviour throws the guy into the street: "Medic, please to be fixing him." I was laughing so hard.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, definitely.


    Any additional comments?

    The second book is great in print, too; I need to get that audiobook next!
