Invasion: Book One of the Secret World Chronicle | [Mercedes Lackey, Steve Libbey, Cody Martin, Dennis Lee]

Invasion: Book One of the Secret World Chronicle

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

Suddenly, all world governments were simultaneously attacked by soldiers in giant mecha robotic suits with the swastika symbol of the Third Reich on their metal arms. If these were Nazis, where had they been hiding since the end of World War II? And where had they gotten armor and weapons far in advance of anything on the planet? Weapons against which even the metahuman heroes seemed to be helpless…

    "really bad"

    This thing has a horrible plot. The presentation isn't any better. Out of hundreds of Audio books this has to be the worst one I have ever bought.

    "Couldn't get me to "suspend my disbelief""
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is an alternate reality book, however, the authors presume that everything today would still be the same even though in WW2 era there was an emergence of super-powered meta-beings. That somehow there has been a secret struggle between good metas and evil metas, but it didn't really affect everyday normal people. Well, the whole time I kept thinking how 50 years of metas would have such a huge impact on the timeline and world scope ... how did the Vietnam War turn out? How come "normals" still run the country? What about Professional sports?

    Long story short: I just couldn't buy into it at all, so even though the performance was well done, I can't take any more of these books.

    "i made a choice. Really boring."
    Would you try another book from the authors and/or Nick Sullivan?

    I know and own may of Mercedes Lackey's books in series. The other others are new to me. Nick Sullivan was not very impressive but the book was so boring I feel I didnt have a chance to evaluate Nick Sullivan.


    What could the authors have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Detailed insufficient in some areas, not enough history for other parts and that is the first hour. This is not my type of sifi. So I barely made the first hour.


    What three words best describe Nick Sullivan’s voice?

    Distinctive, multiple character typed voices or emotions down pat.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Invasion?

    No one would let me edit this book. It would be unfair. Not my style.


    Any additional comments?

    Read the description of the book, listen to the sample and if they dont grab your heart, mind or are easily forgotten wo wanting to know more? Dont buy it. Trying a new type or style is good growth but if you cant remember what the first 20 min was about and you are only 1 hour into the book......let it go. This is suppose to be entertaining not a test in tolerance.

    "Too Many Cooks spoil the broth!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't recommend this book to a friend. This book was like a writer's holiday. There was tons of potential but it didn't go anywhere. I found it very disappointing. Even if it is the start of a series, the authors owe the reader something. This was a long set up to nothing.


    If you’ve listened to books by the authors before, how does this one compare?

    I am a big fan of Mecedes Lackey. This is not her usual excellent work


    Was Invasion worth the listening time?

    I felt cheated and was glad when the book was over.

    "Yuck"

    Not worth the invisible paper credit. Giant mechanized Nazis? Fighting comic book super heros? Perhaps this book is meant as a spoof. I cannot imagine why Ms. Lackey decided to associate herself with this collaboration.

    I gave the narrator 3 stars just because I couldn't blame him for the material.

    "I'm sorry I wasted my credit"
    What did you like best about Invasion? What did you like least?

    Action and suspense


    Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

    NO


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Terrible narration, feminine voice for a male made me want to toss my food up in many parts. Just ruined this book for me. My opinion Audible should have hired a more masculine narrator for a book like this. Just awful and I will never get any books with this narrator, never!


    Did Invasion inspire you to do anything?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Horrid narration ruined the book for me
