Really enjoyable work. Well written. It went by in about six hours as it was just too short.

It was supposed to be an easy job: find the Dark Star Revolution Starships, destroy them, and go home. But a booby-trapped vessel decimates the Meridian Alliance fleet, leaving Serengeti - a Valkyrie class warship with a sentient AI brain - on her own, wrecked and abandoned in an empty expanse of space. On the edge of total failure, Serengeti thinks only of her crew. She herds the survivors into a lifeboat, intending to sling them into space. But the escape pod sticks in her belly, locking the cryogenically frozen crew inside.

Would you try another book from J. B. Rockwell and/or Elizabeth Wiley?

No

Has Serengeti turned you off from other books in this genre?

I love sci-fi. But this was like a cross between the more annoying robots of star wars and WALL-E.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment

Any additional comments?

I kept listening and waiting for something to happen. It never did.

Slave-taking aliens kidnap Bill MacCarthy and Jane Yamaguchi from the remote Rocky Mountains. But the aliens are in for a surprise! Bill is a retired Navy SEAL and Jane is an Air Force Space Command captain. Together they must breakout from escape-proof cells, fight the ship's crew, capture the captain and take over the starship - all before they are delivered to buyers on an alien world. Along the way they gain alien allies, including a naive ship AI. But will their escape survive a space battle?

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not really. A good start that went all squishy.

Would you recommend Escape from Aliens, Book 1 to your friends? Why or why not?

No one over the age of 12.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Somerset Hamilton?

You mean Mr. Rogers? Needed someone a little "tougher".
