They came from deep space. They came to destroy us. Fifty years ago bloodthirsty aliens devastated the Earth. Most of humanity perished. We fell into darkness. But now we rise from the ashes. Now we fight back. Marco Emery was born into the war. After his mother is killed, he joins the Human Defense Force, Earth's ragtag army. Emery must survive basic training, become a soldier, and finally face the aliens in battle. Against the alien onslaught, Earth stands alone. But we will fight. We will rise. We will win.

Where does Earth Alone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Earth Alone was an awesome book. The audio was fantastic and the story kept you hooked. Great story of an "every man" going to boot camp and the experiences he gains there.

What did you like best about this story?

Daniel puts the reality of preparing to war into a sci-fi story with honesty and grit.

Which scene was your favorite?

You're hooked at the very beginning when you find out why the character has so much to gain and to lose by going to fight the scum. I was on the edge of my seat at the last battle, praying they would make it out!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wanted to listen to this story all the way through!

Any additional comments?

A great beginning to a series that will keep you coming back to feel the humanity of the characters Daniel has created!
