Publisher's Summary

Can Noah Zarc stop Earth from being destroyed... a second time? [YA Sci-Fi, Time Travel, Space Adventure, Extinction]

Noah Zarc has a life most kids only dream of – traveling through time on an immense spaceship, seeing the wonders of the solar system, and experiencing the vast history of Earth... before everything on the planet was destroyed. His family's mission is to repopulate Earth with life retrieved from the past. Of course, nothing ever goes as planned.

His mother and father vanish during an operation to Earth's ancient past, and together with his brother, sister, and an orphaned girl from the Ice Age, Noah sets out on a quest through space and time to rescue his parents and bring them back to the 31st century.

Yet, as they soon discover, his parents' disappearance was no accident. The Zarc family is being systematically hunted by a dark foe who will stop at nothing to thwart the Zarc mission, even if that means destroying all life on Earth... again, including everything, and everyone, Noah holds dear.

      "Definitely worth the listening credit"
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      Yes, I'd recommend this audiobook. The story was very engaging, very well written and thought out. The characters are all unique and it was enjoyable to listen to each of them interact with each other.


      Who was your favorite character and why?

      I liked Haon. He's evil in a fun way. ;)
      Plus his complicated history makes him interesting.


      What about David Radtke’s performance did you like?

      He did an amazing job with all the character voices. His portrayal of Noah I thought was spot on. There are also a lot of foreign accents and foreign language as well and I think he sounded fluent.


      Any additional comments?

      If you like a good story, then certainly grab this one. :)

      Story
      "Not just for kids - adults will enjoy it too!"

      I bought this audiobook because my friend recommended it. She said she really enjoyed listening to it with her kids. It's something that even adults can enjoy. And she was right.

      The main character, Noah, is very cool, sarcastic, typical teenager. But he also has a streak of bravery in him as well. The book is written in first person so you get to hear his thoughts and feelings about everything.

      Time travel is a main part of the story and the author uses it very well. He created his own rules and sticks to them nicely.

      The bad guy is bad - what did you expect? ;)

      And the ending... well, for a "kids book"... it surprised even me!

      Story
      "A wonderful sci-fi ride"

      I'll admit I was hesitant about getting this. I usually listen to books aimed at higher age levels and not for young kids/teens.

      But there is excellent storytelling here. And it's done very well without all the usual violence found in some novels.

      The main character, Noah, is very likable. The narrator does a wonderful job giving him life (as well as the other characters). Mr. Pease created a fascinating futuristic world that is both complex yet easy to understand.

      There are many surprises and a twist of an ending that is shocking as well as heartwarming (True, an odd combination. But it works very well.)

      Well worth the credit.
      I think pretty much everyone can enjoy this.
      I sure did!

      "Love the story but the character voices less"
      What made the experience of listening to Noah Zarc the most enjoyable?

      The story itself is outstanding! Both my 9-year old daughter and I immensely enjoyed this book, and we are both anxiously looking forward to reading the rest of the series.


      What other book might you compare Noah Zarc to and why?

      This is a very unique story, so this is hard, but perhaps the closest for me would be A Wrinkle in Time. I appreciated that the author grappled with some of the potential consequences of time travel and its impact on family lives.


      What do you think the narrator could have done better?

      We did not particularly enjoy the different voices he did for different characters. To me, a few of them came across as very denigrating. Only one of them bothered my daughter, however, and she said she could live with it.


      If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

      Jumping through time to preserve earth's animal life
