Publisher's Summary

When a huge alien spacecraft crashes on the island of Cuba, the world scrambles to investigate. Secretive organizations have waited for generations for this opportunity, and they do not hesitate to send in recovery teams. Cooperation between nations breaks down as every government wants the newly discovered technology for themselves. Naturally, the Cubans have beaten everyone else, and the island is beginning to change. Aircraft flying reconnaissance are swatted from the skies. Commandos can’t make a landing on the beaches without being annihilated. Malena Marin is a new XCU agent with special abilities. She’s sent with a team of veterans on a mission to secure the landing site or die trying. Unfortunately, the enemy knows they’re coming. As the conflict grows and turns increasingly violent, the aliens themselves enter the game. And they have plans of their own....

    Story
    "Very cool story. A little short."

    I feel like I listened to half of a book by the time i was done. I want answers and i didn't get them. Aliens,secret government agents stealing the aliens technology, craziness.

    Dont get me wrong,this was a very entertaining listen,but it left me wanting more. It felt like half of a thought almost at times. That will not stop me from getting the next in the series.

    "Another good story and I am hoping for a 2nd book!"

    I couldn't stop listening to this book! It was action pack and so interesting. It kept me awake on a long drive to Florida from Texas. I truely hope that Larson continues this series.

    Story
    "Good Story, But Could Have Been Much Better!"

    B. V. Larson is a very good writer. He wrote stories like STAR FORCE a Great saga that is still on going. This story is a good one in many respects but is drawn out and lacks action in some areas. It has a good plot to the story but fades in the jungle and on an alien ship. Very little is told about what the ship in side or out looks like. Some vage image you can imagine thats all.

    Story
    "Not my cup of tea"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Normally I have liked or loved all of Mr Larson's stories. I just couldnt get into this one. The story just didnt have the grip on my attention that the Starforce series or the Haven series do.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Oh well


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nothing really.


    Could you see Element-X being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    HEY AUDIBLE WHERE IS THE NEW STARFORCE AUDIOBOOK ITS BEEN OUT FOR 4 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
