Publisher's Summary

Exploring New Earth should be a thrilling undertaking. Instead, the more the colonists learn about the planet, the more alarmed they become. Alien ruins hint at a species who fought great wars among themselves and disappeared centuries ago.  

When Connor Gates discovers a hidden bunker, he finds something he never expected. Everything the colonists have learned about New Earth’s previous inhabitants is wrong. Connor must race to unravel the mystery. The colonists must face the possibility that they are not alone and that New Earth was never theirs for the taking.

Simply Outstanding

While I failed to comment on Genesis, after listening to Ken Lozito’s unexpected personal remarks at the conclusion of Book-7, I decided to go back to the earliest book of the "First Colony Series," still in my possession, to input this brief analysis. Indeed, I lack the suitable words to convey the extent of my enormous appreciation for each single work of this anthology, for, ever since I finished listening to Genesis, I could not wait to start enjoying the next one. Lastly, I would like to vigorously applaud the author of this magnificent series, and to thank him for having composed them for his devoted audience.

WOW! I love this series

I have been reading the First Colony series from Genesis on. I just finished book seven. In all the books I am eagerly awaiting the next paragraph. Mr. Ken Lozito is an incredible author and I am so very glad that he bailed on the IT security gig. His art is writing. God has blessed this man with a wife and children but also with the ability to take the reader away in an awesome journey. I believe that Mr. Lozito will be writing for many many years and I look forward to the next book.

Another great book in the series

I enjoyed this audiobook just as I did the ones earlier in the series. The storyline is getting very interesting, for sure.

The best chapters are the last 2.

The other 38 chapters are boring and predictable.
Ony the last 2chapter that leads up to a new boek is any good.

Slow unraveling of New Earth mysteries-Disappoints

Emphasis on slow. A book so short shouldn't have such a slow start. One of the mysteries in the book involve wondering why the main character, Conner is Mayor as well as principal explorer. We gradually discover(with Conner) mysteries associated with the NEIIS (New Earth Indigenous Intelligent Species) apparently pronounced "Newies" and Ryclar. The archaeological techniques using thermite explosives, shovels and hands seem more akin to Schliemman(who used similar techniques to excavate Troy in 1875) than a space-faring archaeologist. Disappointing.

Poor Writing and story line.

I have read and enjoyed all Ken Lozito books in this series. However this book is a disappointment. It appears that the writer was just trying to extend the series for commercial purposes. The storyline did not make a lot of sense. It may be time to conclude the series.

Good read but ..

The story line is good but some of it is tedious and does not add much to the plot.
