Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Bob Mayer writing as Robert Doherty.

Over 1.2 Million copies of Area 51 sold in print-also author of best-selling Atlantis series

Area 51 was the most secret place in America. But it was only one piece in a puzzle that stretched from Egypt's Pyramids to the mysterious face on Mars.

Part of a plan begun 5,000 years ago by those who had been here before. And are coming back.

When scientist Lisa Duncan and Special Forces officer Mike Turcotte uncovered the stunning truth about Area 51--a "training area" on Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada--they opened up a Pandora's box kept hidden from the American public for 50 years.

What they uncovered explained decades of UFO sightings--and the most baffling mysteries of history from the Great Pyramid to Easter Island.

But these findings were only the beginning. Now a signal has come in from outer space: our first contact with extraterrestrials. The message said they were coming. It didn't say they had been here before...and left something behind. But what waited deep within the Rift Valley of Ethiopia and inside an ancient Chinese tomb would determine Earth's fate. The dawning of a new age. Or the destruction of us all...

Interstellar conflict!

Would you listen to Area 51: The Reply again? Why?

Yes, I was impressed with the concept and development in Area 51 (the first book in the "Area 51" series.

What other book might you compare Area 51: The Reply to and why?

It's a worthy follow-up to Area 51, the first book in the series.

Alternate Universe!!!

Alternate Universe!!! is the only explanation, because some of the basic laws of physics are completely misrepresented,aerodynamics,hydrodyanmics,gravitics and factual history have the biggest number of mistakes I ever seen in science fiction.
Everything else is much better than in the first book.

Title Is Required

This is book two of a series with an indeterminate author. Who wrote this book? Was it Bob Mayer or somebody else? I hate pseudonyms. Take credit for it or don't...just don't lie to the readers. t had an engaging plot, interesting characters, and a high level of suspense. Unfortunately, it felt like a bridge connecting the beginning (book1) and the rest of the plot. These must be read in order as it is one continuous story..

Time to move on from 51

Guilty, you sort-a kind-a hope that something new in terms of ideas is going to come out but it doesn't, it didn't.

Blahhhh

What disappointed you about Area 51: The Reply?

Rather boring and frankly a little over the top for me. I personally only continued to read because i wanted to know what the story was behind Area 51, otherwise, i wouldnt have finished it.

A little more interesting

Read some reviews and they convinced me To listen to the third book otherwise I would have been done with the series by now, just something about the story and how predictable it is.

Great narrator and great story

I love this series but be warned this is the last book by Jeffrey Kafer. The narrator for the next books pronounces words and characters differently and throws you off. It did for me and ruined the next book. I would recommend buying a physical copy or one for your kindle. Sorry Eric Dove but your voice gave me a headache. You are missed Jeffrey and I hope they can get him to re-record the books that follow. Still I love the story just wish their was more meat on the bones and less recap from previous books. I strongly recommend this series.
