Publisher's Summary

Earth is dying. Its resources are contaminated. Plagues have decimated the population to a mere two million - a population number not seen on Earth for 50,000 years. With time running out, Earth sends probes to find suitable planets to move its population to before their impending extinction. Project Arcturus is born. An advance party is sent to the distant world of Arcturus to eliminate the current population. The force does not expect the post-Iron-Age civilization to be any threat at all. On Arcturus peace reigns. The upcoming harvest festival and sacrifice is their foremost issue. As the Arcturians become aware of the impending invasion, they turn to the One that provides all their guidance. Thanks to a decision thousands of years ago, God still walks among them. Earth's plans for an easy conquering of the planet are wrong. Very wrong.

Good Idea - Bad Execution

The premise for the story is good, but the author didn't do his homework. In the story, Earth tries to take over a planet where their "Adam & Eve" never ate the forbidden apple. If the author knew his bible, he would know that without sin, there would be no need for priests and temples, Etc. He would also know the animals would not fear mankind so there would be no need to go hunting.

Add to this, there is background music everywhere. Each chapter starts and ends with music. Most audiobooks I've listened to that have music and sound effects haven't been very good. This one is no exception.

And then there's the reader. He sounds like a 90 year old man reminiscing about how his deceased wife used to make apple pies. Even in the action areas of the story, the reader gets about excited as a 90 year old trying to get out of his chair to go to the bathroom. Very slow story. Disappointing.
