Publisher's Summary

They say that necessity is the mother of all inventions. Amir Weatherby has the world in his hands, quite literally. When his company discovers an asteroid on a direct collision course with Earth, they decide to keep the news quiet and find a way to survive the impending apocalypse themselves. Secret projects begin with the intent of preventing the world going the same way as the dinosaurs. 

Three top-secret sites are developed, each designed to hold a small pocket of the human race safe until after impact. It just so happens that one of these sites is in space. The former ISS is transformed into a safe haven called the ARC, the Automated Resettlement and Repopulation Cryostation, where some of the world’s greatest scientific minds will sleep through the whole show.

But events unfold in ways that couldn’t have been predicted, and when they arrive back on Earth there is a whole new disaster waiting for them.

An interesting notion

Not the best apocalypse bopk but not bad either. I found the Big Rich Founder annoying, as I was supposed to. The narrator did a good job and the author captured the essence of humans facing a catastrophe. All in all if there are more books in the series I will check them out.

Great Story!

Another fantastic story from Devon Ford. I was pleasantly surprised by the story, it tackles quite a few big issues in Science Fiction. I'm looking forward to future sequels to see how these concepts play out.

Start of a great new series ( sort of opera like )

Wow. Quite the debut of a new, very large series by Devon Ford and Marc Veitor. It looks like a strong combination going forward to be sure!
Ford crafts a powerful, realistic dystopian future vision, with enough character development and plot twists to keep the listener coming back for more. Although this story is Book 1, it can stand alone on its own merits.
Marc Veitor is one of the more talented, and unique, Audible performers, and his work on this offering further cements that reputation. Consistent characterizations, with a solid balance between dramatics and atmosphere building, all combine to produce a fascinating, entertaining and, at times, concerning, introduction to the series.
Definitely looking forward to the next book!
Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed this new series

I listened to it, then re-listened. I cannot wait for the next one. I try to wait until all books in series are done so I won't have to wait on next book. Hopefully the next will come very soon.

Just wow

This has been immense. With Effortless perspective switching, this is a rich and thoroughly thought out sci-fi story. The organic progression into a new earth brought me into an excited state of awe as the story unfurled. i have to say i am eager to find out what comes next.
