Publisher's Summary

The Deliverance isn’t alone.

That’s not a surprise. The planet was chosen for a reason.

But the situation is more dire than Caleb ever imagined. The enemy he’s encountered isn’t the enemy he was seeking, and the conflict is expanding in ways he can barely conceive.

Taken prisoner by an opponent both familiar and foreign, he’ll have to prove himself one more time....

Or watch everything he’s fought so hard to protect be destroyed.

If you love Aliens, Battlestar Galactica, Starship Troopers, Ender's Game, or Edge of Tomorrow, you'll love this epic military sci-fi thriller.

I Just Don't Care Anymore

I loved the first book in the series and the second one. By the third I began to be suspicious that this would become a series with 79 books in it with the same things happening over and over. By the end of the fourth book, I'm convinced this will be a series with 79 books and the same things happening over and over. The bigger problem, however, is that by book four none of the characters are sympathetic anymore. The best thing that could happen to the humans and aliens of all varieties is for all of them to die. It's now unbelievable that the surviving marines could survive at all and that the author believes we're still willing to give the evil scientist the benefit of the doubt. Sorry, but enough already. Jeffrey Kafer is good, though.

This audiobook is only part of a book.

The only reason I listened to this series is that the first three books were free. The next two audiobooks should have been one book.

Spent 22 bucks on the first 4 books. Enough

I'm not willing to go into this any further, they should have stuck to 3 packs. just not worth the money for an endless sequel.

Nothing Good Has Happened Yet

This is book four of a five book series. So far everyone dies or is compromised. Very dark ,full of lies and betrayals . I will finish up this series with book 5 , but if Forbes doesn’t pull this out to a good ending , I’m most likely done . I can get all the “darkness” out of the real world that I want….. don’t need to read about humanity’s dark side when I’m trying to escape it !

um, what the heck on the plot.

I don't think these books are great, but I simply can't stop listening. I will finish bc I have come this far, but the plot is getting crazier and more unbelievable.

It's a bit rough...

The whole book just feels like your being smothered for trying to do the right thing. Surrounded by back-stabbing c@@@$. It's my least favorite book in the series so far. Hopefully book 5 will bring it around. I'm tired of everyone you like just dieing.

Hold on to your butts!

The thrill ride continues! There are definitely aspects that a lot of harsh critics will complain about but this book and series is a fantastic sci-fi action ride plain and simple. Loads to enjoy, I highly recommend!

The good guys got beat

It was so hard to get through this book, because the good guys got their asses handed to them. And damn Riley is still alive.
Well I'm looking forward to the last book in this installment, i hope the good guys can really and pull out a win.

not nearly as good as the first three books

it's short 7 hrs which frankly isn't good enough. the story line lost its way. The twists were ridiculous. for me so bad I'm not sure I'll buy the next.
The first three books very good. This one not at all

Great Book

Listened to this one twice now and it excites me everytime. A good alternate to alien invasion and the human response. Can’t wait to listen to the next one.

I saw the other reviews and thought "Why not"

The worst thing that I could get is 7 boring hours, right? I got 3-4 hours of Avatar with ok humour, then I got 3 hours of gripping, soul crushing combat. Filled with the usual twists and turns from everyone's favourite doctor. And an ending that I really didn't see coming. It was good, I'm looking forward to seeing how things end.
