The Legend of Zero begins the epic journey of 14-year-old Joe Dobbs in a post-apocalyptic universe following a massive alien invasion of Earth. 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 thing i liked best about zero is how he dosent know realy anything about being a leader or leadership but learns form his misstakes to become a battle master.
my favorite part of the book is when zero speaks the alien tong with out relising what he isdoing then kill's the sentinal with a simple knife
i realy wished sasha and munk could have been saved that was a sad moment that turned the story dark, i loved it.
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.
I haven't finished the book yet but I can tell you right now that the Overall is going to lose a star. There is a sound to signal a time break or point of view switch within a chapter which is so annoying that I miss the next couple of sentences of the story because I'm too busy cursing the bastard who chose the sound and volume for this signal. You'll be listening to Liam's smooth voice and then it's like someone smashes two glasses together inside your ears at 10 db louder than the narration. Jeezus!
Sure, but I would tell them to read the book first. It allows you to visualize the story better.
The last battle, and the pain endured because of it.
I just prefer to read more, the narrator did a great job.
I really enjoyed this series so far I can't wait for the 4th book to be released.
My most pleasant surprise of the year.The author did an excellent job introducing new alien environments and cultures. I can not wait for the other Zero books to come to audio.
Good listen and interesting story but...what is up with the chimes in between sections? Very weird. Almost like a children's book. Ring ring! Turn the page
This is not dark, just negative. I understand it is a mechanism to tell the story but it keeps going on and on with little progress in the story. I am at chapter fourteen and there has been very little world building. Mostly it is one deprecating task/incident after another. Enough already, we get it! Move on!
Giving up and seeing if I can get my money back...
whoever thought that a loud peircing bell in between random paragraphs was a good idea should be fired. I would love to comment on the story and narration, but i am now to busy seeking an ear doctor.
Story was somewhat original and interesting, but I found myself drifting away frequently while listening to it. The reader does an ok job for some characters, but all of the military leaders that seemed like they were leading a yoga class instead of a group of recruits. Also, please add some pauses between chapters. It sounded like half the book was a run-on sentence.
Terrific story . I followed the list of books read by Liam Owen since I enjoy his character creation. I understand the book has a sequel,( not yet on audible) but this story is complete in itself.
