Publisher's Summary

Gunner Fox finds himself in a place of darkness, without a reason to live. Until now. 

An asteroid is on a collision course with our planet.

Gunner Fox is on a collision course with death. 

International best-selling author, Bobby Akart, introduces Gunner Fox, a United States Air Force fighter pilot and Earth Scientist. When America needs a hero, they turn to a man who has nothing to live for, without a care in the world - except to save it. 

Somewhere out there, an asteroid is on a collision course with Earth. Five times in the history of our planet, extinction-level events have occurred, arguably all of which have been caused by asteroids. 

Will we be ready to meet it? We'll get just one chance to defend ourselves. Will we succeed?

In Bobby Akart's Asteroid series, he serves up hard evidence for the astonishing fragility of life and a humbling lesson for us all. It shows we are at the mercy of forces we do not see nor understand; forces that made our existence possible a few hundred thousand years ago and that just as quickly - in the twinkling of an eye - can and will one day, take us out.

A pause-resisting trilogy from a master storyteller, this new Gunner Fox series begins with Asteroid Discovery.

Great KICK off for a SERIES!

Words cannot describe the fun when a new Bobby Akart book comes out, you look forward with every page, the character builds up, the great characters with an always unique setting. Bobby Akart's book take a unique premise to multiple timelines and events that welcome any reader instantly. Whenever a new series begins I readily look forward to it. This one is the premise of Gunner Fox who brings a troubled soul to be with friends on a quite diverted quest between others. The nice build up is great right up until the end of book one and the only bad part is that there are only three books planned for the Gunner Fox saga at the moment. I am hoping the promise of such great characters from other series will appear and that along with the terrific storyline has me hooked ready for the next one to be released! I have already reread the story twice now to get some more subtle hints that I missed the first time around and grateful the author takes such preparations for his audience. If you have not yet read any of the series, go ahead and start as everyone has been great to enjoy. Each resides in a rather unique perspective with character settings and tenants to the stories that help to move things along.

Brilliant!! Facts meet Fiction in another headliner type series!!

Bobby Akart continues to dazzle me with his brilliant creativity and obvious extensive research. He has an awesome ability to merge facts with fiction in each series; and this one is no exception!
Book 1 and I am already in love with the characters in this series! I read the book AND then listened to it on Audible. The characters jump off the pages and can each stand on their own, but I love hearing Chris Abernathy continue bringing each of Bobby’s characters to life (in the Audible version as well).
This series is filled with Danger, excitement and bonds that can’t be broken between characters! It’s also a fantastic merge of Facts meet Fiction! Asteroids and other near earth objects (NEO) are out there! Beware and Keep Looking Up!!

Cut from the headlines

Discovery, is another world ending tail by Mr. Akart. The main characters are more than they first seem and the disaster is one that could be in tomorrow’s headlines.
Great book that’s fun to listen while you drive. The author is always keeping us entertained and informed.

Great presentation of an amazing new book.

I had just read the book and then next day bought the Audible version. So far, I've listened to it twice over the weekend as it brings the book to life so well. The voice of the various characters are different enough that you forget only one person is reading it to you. I HIGHLY recommend this Audible book. The book itself is so good that I keep picking up nuances that I missed on the first read. So, I recommend reading and listening to the book more than once. I have already pre-ordered the next 2 books and will be getting Chris' presentation as soon as I can get them.

Exciting, thrilling, heart provoking and overall incredible

Asteroid Discovery, was exciting, thrilling, heart provoking and overall incredible. The topic of the new series is very interesting, really makes you think about the grey line the media and our government live in on a daily bases; especially when it comes to a devastating disaster. We are in such crazy times, the slightest thing could send the protesters and the crazies in the street. Looking forward to see how all of those issues are worked out in the next book.
The characters are so relatable, fun and passionate. Mostly love the enter action with Gunner and his dad Papas (who should share the snicker doodle recipe). Author Bobby Akart teamed up with Chris Abernathy, is always a winning combination. Thank you!

Space, covert ops & politics.

What a combination of space, covert ops, politics and development of a favorite new character Gunner Fox.

Terrific fun, and as always tidbits of knowledge are combined by Bobby Akart in a terrific adventure. Looking forward to books 2 and 3!

So many layers

I loved this book and immediately started book 2. Keep writing Mr Akart, keep narrating Mr Abernethy and I'll keep listening
