Publisher's Summary

From thriller and suspense master Brett Battles comes Down, the final book in the Project Eden saga.

Matt Hamilton's last words have led Daniel Ash and his team to the snow-covered town of Everton, Vermont. On a field just outside city limits sits an unassuming hut. But this is no innocent building. Inside is the entrance to the secret Project Eden base known as Dream Sky, the key to the project's success. Or its defeat, as Ash hopes. To give the team the best chance to succeed, resistance groups have moved into position outside project installations around the globe. The purpose: to create diversions that will draw project attention away from Dream Sky. These groups have been waiting for the signal to attack. The wait is over.

Good closure to exceptional series

This could easily have turned into "and they lived happily ever after..." While it brings a very good closure to the series, it reminds us that extinction level events are messy. That while good may triumph - there is a cost to be paid. Good people often pay that price for those that remain.

Neatly packaged

Solid wrap up to a extremely infectious (hehe) series. It should've been a little longer, because a few things seemed rushed. Otherwise, I really love the book and the series....no spoilers, but I'm hoping the ending is a lead-in for a new series :D

Finally the suspense ends with Book 7...

of Project Eden. It has been a wild ride as the suspense has built through the first six books.

Project Eden is a continuing series that can be thought of as a single 60 hour book, so each of the first 6 books end with a lot of uncertainty and unresolved issues. The suspense builds up to a point that very few action thrillers can match. Along with the Jonathan Quinn series Project Eden establishes Brett Battles as one of the best thriller writers ever.

McLeod Andrews narrates the Project Eden series and he does his usual great job.

I have enjoyed this series and highly recommend it to readers of action thrillers.

Wonderful ending to a great series

Would you consider the audio edition of Down to be better than the print version?

Yes. Though I haven't read the print version, I don't feel it would've given me the same emotions as listening to it did

Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

I would have to say Martina. I liked her spunk, plus the way her voice was read made her interesting :)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes when Martina and Maureen finally meet up.

Another great read by Brett Battles

Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Macleod Andrews is my absolute favorite performers for audio books. I have found some great authors by following him and choosing books based on his performance. Love him!

Any additional comments?

Brett Battles has become one of my favorite Authors. Haven't read a dull one yet.

Awesome finisher...

Would you consider the audio edition of Down to be better than the print version?

yes, if you multi task like me Audio give you more freedom...and Down will end up surprising you at the end if you have listen to the other books before this one.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Down?

how easy it was to spy on the Project Eden, to know what I mean you need to listen to the book.

Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

NO, great narrator, and I would add him to one of the reasons I would buy a book read by him.

Any additional comments?

Awesome series, but you would need to start at the beginning to understand how each book end up at Down...worth your time and money.

Whew, what a ride!

Surprise, surprise, there's stuff at Dream Sky that you do NOT want blown up. This makes the task of taking it down much harder, because you can't just go destroy it; you have to preserve it.

Then there is the problem of the many other Project nerve centers with leaders and workers dedicated to the cause who will fight to the death to remain alive and keep the project going. You've got to know who and where they are and get them all or they will rise again.

Will all our friends make it out alive and well? Sanjay is in a very desperate situation in India, and Belinda is in a U.N. Survival, er, extermination camp, suspicious but not sure. Martina is trying to find Ben, but he went to the "Survival" camp in LA to find HER! And then Chloe goes all catatonic wacko when Ash's team enters Dream Sky. Such tension, danger, pathos! Loved it all the way.

So exciting to see how this all wraps up, but sad to see it over. I don't see the future making a good book or series, but it is fascinating to contemplate the job the survivors now have. It is unthinkable and horrible for everyone, but they now get to do what The Project planned-- forge a new civilization from the remains of the devastated world. What to do first? Well, there are several things:

sanitation--clean up all the dead bodies, and make sure everyone really is inoculated
communication--get all survivors in contact with each other
transportation--move people around and make sure everyone has food, etc.
food production--even if there are only 700 million people left, they all need basic necessities and we need to keep all of them alive!

What kind of organization will there be? At what point will people return to old nationalistic, ethnic, political constructs and start fighting each other again? Was The Project right and all humanity needed was a new start and we could all live in peace, or will we just develop the same sorts of hatreds and conflicts that got us here?

Many of the books end on cliff-hangers, so you need to be able to get the next one right away to avoid frustration. I have never heard anyone complain about The Lord of the Rings, which is also 3 books, 2 of which cannot stand alone (publisher's decision in the 50's to make more money). Sometimes the writing is sophomoric, but it still gets an A. Some of the characters are less well-developed than they should be, but others are quite full and real and lovable.This series has been fascinating, frightening, totally possible, and captivating. MacLeod Andrews makes it even better.

This was an OUTSTANDING series!!

This was an OUTSTANDING series that made me grab the next book in the series well before I was done with the previous... I did this so I would not miss a beat in the story... It was so compelling, and quite original in its overall plot, I thought... Do yourself a favor, and start with "Sick" the first in the series, and then don't stop until you get to "Down" the seventh and "final?" installment... You will NOT regret it!!

nonstop action

once again Brett Battles nailed it. Just like the other Project Edon books you are briefed on what was going on prior to each book. With many characters I was engolf in each person's story. So many things happening at once you hate to have to stop. Two thumbs up
