Publisher's Summary

The Deliverance has arrived.

The planet is beautiful, lush, teeming with life and perfectly suited to the colony’s needs. It should be a paradise. 

Instead, it’s a nightmare. 

Caleb knows the truth. The ship’s real mission has nothing to do with settlement. The plan is much more sinister than that. 

Now the race is on to prepare for the coming storm, to secure the colony, and find the enemy before the enemy finds them. 

But when fear leads to a desperate betrayal, will it be the innocent who pay the ultimate price?

Love this, from book 1 to book 3...good story..awesome characters and amazing narrator. Love all of it. Can't wait to start books 4 and 5. Will be sad when this story ends. Already sad that ( spoiler alert) Sho and Florez died...🥺. Hopefully Washington doesn't die as well.

Card and crew aren't through yet!

I seriously can not get enough of the Forgotten Universe. Each series is so wonderfully unique and builds the world up so well.

After crash landing on an alien planet Card and his Guardians are caught in the thick of it as an ignorant Mayor struggles to maintain control over Metro after lying to the population for so long. The Guardians just happen to be the perfect scapegoat to direct blame. Lost in the jungle and forced to ally himself with the enemy to survive being persecuted by the very people he swore to protect Sargent Card has his hands full.

High thrills and chills in a fun series

This third book in the Delivery series is the proverbial rollercoaster ride of action and danger we've come to love Forbes' writing. It will not disappoint!!!

Best series!!

This book series and the other series in the same universe are easily my favorite audio books I’ve listened to. Well written and great character development. I’m hooked every time. I sometimes want to be there with Caleb or Sheriff Haden Duke fighting the trife and saving humanity. Also discovering the reasons behind it all. I love it!!!

Enjoyable Sci-Fi

This series is pure escapism.

The colony has finally landed on what appears to be lush haven. However, all that glitters is not gold, as Caleb and his charges are about to find out.

Still enjoying this immensely. Just one anomaly which shows not enough attention was paid to the story. When Caleb demanded AI, Hal, remove himself from Sho's body and take another. The only one available was a trife. After Hal explained that he would be unable to communicate by speech in a trife's body, the next moment he is speaking, with Sho's voice, in a trife's body. Pretty big gaffe.
