Publisher's Summary

China started the war. Can a shattered America finish it?

A disturbingly realistic vision of war several decades into the future. Invasion: China is as ambitious as it is powerful. Using advanced technologies in military science, the world's superpowers battle on land, sea, air, and space for global supremacy. This controversial tale will keep you sleepless at night as America challenges the new colossus in the East: Greater China and her Pan-Asian allies. Hard-hitting. Vast in scope. And all too possibly real.

Continually freezing weather has devastated the Earth's food supply, making US soil the most valuable in the world. A shattered, debt-ridden America suffered invasion by half the world and faced tactical nuclear weapons in her heartland. Now she wants revenge.

In the end, nuclear-tipped torpedoes, deadly laser systems and rail guns cannot replace the grunts on the battlefield. Asian snows turn red with blood as the fate of the world hangs in the balance - this is the thundering geopolitical technothriller, Invasion: China.

    Story
    ""Down Goes China! Down Goes China!""
    What did you love best about Invasion: China?

    This audiobook is loaded with solid action / combat scenes in the sea, land, air and lower Earth orbit. Once I pressed play I couldn't press stop.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Brigadier General Stan "The Professor" Higgins. His grasp of military history and battlefield leadership basically kept the U.S. armed forces from getting their collective asses handed to them by the Chinese. What put him in the top slot was a statement he made to one of his underlings when the lieutenant questioned his decision not to disengage and conserve ammunition during a bombardment of Chinese forces defending a river crossing somewhere in Northern China after there were indications of Chinese starting a "Bugout Boogy" - "No son, We'll remain here to deal death." Needless to say, the bombardment continued.


    What does Mark Ashby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Solid narration that kept the action flowing. Professional job by a quality narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My belief in the ability for our species to lower the bar of cynical ruthlessness and depraved inhumanity was confirmed through the Chinese leader's murderous machinations and the counterproductive, myopic, conniving back stabbing act of the American Militia forces.


    Any additional comments?

    This series ended not with a boom, but with multiple radioactive mushroom clouds. Vaughn Heppner's Invasion America series was a joy to listen to. I highly recommend this final book and the rest of the series.

    By the way, my choice of headline was inspired by Howard Cosell's historic call during the Ali v. Frasier fight, but I am sure you already figured that out.....

    Story
    "This story is well worth the time."

    I now own all five in the series and no it looks there will not be a fifth.
    Great story and equally interesting character development.
    The narrator has a wide variety and range in his voice, dialect, and intonations of the many characters in this series.
    when in his narative mode there was a tendency at times to end a sentence with pitch rise on the end of the last syllable of that word.
    As if it were a guestion

    Story
    "A great final chapter..."

    Though far fetched, stereotypical, and thin in places, this book nicely wraps up the series. While it is not my favorite of the series, it provides closure for characters, storylines, and leaves a satisfied feeling.

    Story
    "Great conclusion to an entertaining series"
    What made the experience of listening to Invasion: China the most enjoyable?

    Waiting to hear how things turn out.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Invasion: China?

    Probably a tie between when the Chairman bought it and Director Harold bought it.


    What does Mark Ashby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You don't notice him. That is how I like the reader to be.


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

    Not that kind of book


    Any additional comments?

    I thought overall this was a fantastic series. There are just a few criticisms I have. Some of the characters became a bit one dimensional while still remaining likable. Anna Chen, Paul Cavanaugh and Jake Higgins. Paul - nonstop wife missing. Anna - high level gov't official but constantly unsure of herself and the ever present description of "beautiful" but doesn't know it. Jake - how many times can this kid be put in a detention center and get out? More lives than a cat for him. I also felt the many minor Chinese characters were a bit robotic.

    While I did enjoy the book, having finished the series, Invasion: New York seemed completely unnecessary. Could have jumped right from Colorado to China and not changed the story in the slightest. The only thing NY seemed to do to further the China series was introduce the Thor missiles.

    Lastly, the whole Director Harold coup seemed too simplistic. Not once until the epilogue of the final book was the VP mentioned. So the POTUS has a heart attack and the VP isn't swore in? The VP doesn't pitch a fit? Congress says nothing? There is a strict line of succession and no where in that line is the DHS director.

    Story
    "Absurd and fun."
    What made the experience of listening to Invasion: China the most enjoyable?

    Heppner isn't too serious and they story goes all out in absurdity and entertainment.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The black Muslim submarine captain who had to get killed off...


    Any additional comments?

    In every book in the series there is always a dude who is in a critical situation but is more focused on a belly ache, sore back, venereal disease...
