    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.

    The story is great (military Sci- Fi at its best) and the narrator is excellent


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Forging Zero?

    When he made the decision to destroy the resistance - there are other scenes as well


    Which character – as performed by Liam Owen – was your favorite?

    Joe Dobbs aka Zero


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scene in the ship with his neighbor

    I've listened to it twice which is a first for me. Sara King is now one of my favorite authors and Liam Owen did an amazing job of narration

    In the not-too-distant future, a young woman bears witness to the end of her world. Earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions rock the planet, reducing cities to smoking rubble, burying entire islands and coastlines beneath cataclysmic waves. Religious fervor and human evil erupt and entwine, becoming a maelstrom of madness in the days after, bringing with it the horror of apocalyptic war.

    What did you like best about Story Time? What did you like least?

    It's an intriguing switch on the apocalypse - a bit too hard core on good guys - bad guys


    Would you be willing to try another book from Linell Jeppsen? Why or why not?

    Maybe - I like the unique viewpoint


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Bigtime by a very flat monotone delivery


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

    No. I like happy endings at home


    Any additional comments?

    If the narration was better I would have been happy to listen. Unfortunately it put me off
