The invasion of Alaska has begun. And the Third World War may not be far behind.
In this controversial book, Vaughn Heppner explores the theme of a shattered America facing the onslaught of the new colossus in the East: Greater China.
The time is 2032, and the Chinese are crossing the polar ice and steaming through the Gulf of Alaska. They have conquered oil-rich Siberia and turned Japan into a satellite state. Now a new glacial period has begun, devastating the world’s food supply. China plans to corner the world’s oil market and buy the needed food for their hungry masses.
A weakened America uses old technology against the next generation of military hardware. The invasion unleashes the Hell of battle as two armies turn the snowfields of Alaska red with blood.
Invasion: Alaska is a thundering techno-thriller of vast scope from bestselling author Vaughn Heppner.

This book is has some Tom Clancy influences, but dare I say better. This book contains continuous action, drama, and suspense to keep you reading. The narration is great, storyline realistic and continuous emotional highs. I’m pre-ordering for book two now.
Very interesting book. Details what road we could go down with further military cut backs and the rise of China as a world superpower. Shows the spirit od America despite being reduced by years of left wing political agendas, and political correctness.
A plausible idea with chilling consequences. A must read for anyone who believes we should slash our national defense.
Yes, but it is impossible to do so
An excellent read but outlines a very frightening future
I stumbled upon this book by accident, and was unsure if I should spend a credit on it. I decided to take the plunge, and was glad that I did! Character development is good, and it has a good storyline. This is not the typical "Bad guy attacks America - America's Dominant Army Fights Back - America Wins" kind of book.
I have been listening to audio books for 20 years. I am a big fan of Tom Clancy's RED STORM RISING,but this book blew him out of the water. Although I do wish Vaughn Heppner was long winded like Tom C. I highly recommend this book. Its rich with characters and action. Plus its makes you think if its possible in our future.
Interesting concept, although some of the characters were a bit of a cliche. Overall, it was a good story. But I am baffled by the listeners who rated the performance as 4 and 5 stars. The book had such glowing reviews I decided to give it a shot but as I began the book I had to stop and check to make sure I hadn't mistakenly downloaded some version that the author decided to try narrating himself. The accents are ridiculous, there is no flow to the narration, and the way the narrator reads really detracts from the story. I had to force myself through the book while wishing I had just read it myself.
Okay plot and the battle scenes were good but the reader is terrible and detracts from what little the book offers. Don't think I'd recommend it and I'm not going to bother with the rest of the series.
Let's face it, these authors aren't paying me, so there's no need to lie!!
This book is for children. Well, either it's for children or VERY slow adults. Truth be told, for the young adult (early teens) market who's into military history and tech, this book is probably not so bad. However, I am an adult, and I saw no warning anywhere in the description, letting me know who this book was written for.
Where to begin with this steaming pile... The dialogue is so unimaginative and stale, it comes across like a high school kid wrote it. The plot is so utterly unrealistic that it's cringe-worthy. The author seems to be guessing as to much of the military tactics and strategy throughout. You won't care about any of the characters. None are unique, memorable, or likable.
I'm not a fan of Tom Clancy, but I've seen where other reviewers compare this guy to him. That's rubbish. This guy makes Clancy look like the greatest writer to have ever lived... and, again, I'm not a Clancy fan. This writer is just that bad.
The worst part about this book are the characters. The leaders of China and the US are retarded. I mean that literally. They come across as mentally deficient to the point of retardation. Everything from the decisions they make, to the way they speak, to the way they are constantly talking to themselves, all of it is completely retarded.
What may be worse than the retarded characters is the fact that the author "played it safe" by making some of the leaders on both sides racist. Really? Racists in the White House, and running China? Really? It would be laughable how contemptible this author considers China, if it wasn't so sad. Obviously, this clown believes more in stereotypes from the 1980's than he does in actually researching his subjects.
I could go on, but this should suffice. This book is a complete waste of time and money for any adult with an IQ over 80.
The narrator is good.
No. It was just to far fetched for me.
No. This author came off as a closet China lover. It's about 30 years in the future and the Chinese military has multiplied its military by 10 fold while the USA has a military straight out of 1980. It's basically a scenario where every Chinese military technology is optimistically better than can be imagined right now, and the American military had devolved to the point where it couldn't beat Iraq. The Chinese have their way with the USA via laser cannons, anti satellite missiles, drones, tanks, and fighter planes. A perfect example is in 30 years China has went from no aircraft carriers to 8 that are better than any of the USA's aircraft carriers. Basically the USA got STOMPED for the entire book and the only thing that stopped China was bad luck.
I though the narrator did an outstanding job. He read the story well and brought the characters to life. I would have no problem buying another story that he narrated.
No. My statements above give my reasons. The story is based on China doing everything to perfection over the next 30 years, and the USA having nothing go right over the same time period.
May be the worst book I've ever purchased from audible.
He had nothing to work with, not sure I can blame him much.
Awful book, the author should find a new line of work.
