Publisher's summary

What happens when the jungle fights back?

The Colonial Scouts are an elite group of explorers who seek out habitable planets for the Colonial Expansion Board. They travel through space via programmable wormholes.

Trace, a new Scout, wants desperately to prove himself to both the Board and to his girlfriend. But when he leads a rescue party to a failing colony, everything goes against him.

His estranged father turns out to be the leader of the settlement. The colonists think he is inept because he is a teenager. And his disgruntled teammates think he was named team leader because of his dad. He can tell no one about his secret mission to save only 15 of the 70 people.

Will he follow orders, leaving the rest of the colonists to die? Or will he find a way to save them all?

A fun and action packed scifi adventure

Would you listen to Alien Jungle again? Why?

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

I didn't realize this was a book 2 when I got it, but the author does a good job providing enough context and light exposition to allow a new listener quick entry to the series. The books action is non-stop and I don't think there was more than 5-10 minutes of downtime throughout its entirety. The characters are fun even if the dialogue is a bit cliched, and the story is engaging.

Good Series, Something Different

One of the reasons I like this series is that it's not your average sci-fi. It has its own interesting concepts that you don't usually see. Definitely good writing.

This book was similar to the first book in the series, though not entirely related. I liked the book, but somehow I liked the first book in the series a little more.

The narration was good, just as it was in the last book.

I requested and received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.
