    "so lovable!"

    The Secret Executive Orders by Richard Stephens is a great introduction to the sci-fi genre. The book is quick paced, the characters are well thoroughly considered, and the discourse trades are wonderful. The plot of the story was great, connecting with, and charming. It takes an extremely canny and think approach melding governmental issues. I adapted such a large number of genuine logical and noteworthy actualities with regards to a romantic tale blended with political and legitimate substances. I will say the time taken as well as the cash spent to purchase this book wasn't a wasted one at all.

    "Outstanding Selection for an Audio Book"

    Life as we know if can change without us even knowing . . .

    Colonel Jake Allen of the United States Airforce finds himself in the middle of the Nevada desert. The year is 2028 and he has been selected to be the Director of a top-secret mission known as “Project Alamos”.

    Jake is in for the fight of his life as aliens from Planet Kroko are plotting to evade Earth. An invasion of this size would surely destroy all of mankind. Colonel Allen and President Elizabeth Schaefer join forces to ensure they don’t succeed. Will his mastermind, a supporting President, and rock solid comrades be strong enough to prevent this travesty from occurring?

    I first discovered THE SECRET EXECUTIVE ORDERS in book format. I was so intrigued by the overall context of this story I wanted to explore its content deeper by selecting to listen to an audio. This book is one that thoroughly excels as an audiobook. You can feel the excitement of each scene play out as you find yourself so caught up in all the drama.

    Richard A. Stephens has done an extensive amount of research to produce such a highly acclaimed book. This one has totally changed the way I view Science Fiction. I feel that this author has made a strong mark in the literary world with this one book. I look forward to discovering more exciting titles in the future.

    Story
    "Gripping Sci-fi novel"

    The Secret Executive Orders by Richard Stephens is a book in the Sci-fi/Thriller genre. It starts with Colonel Jake Allen asking a panel of three journalists to record his interviews, which relay a series of events which have significant implications for humans on Earth. Assigned as leader of Project Alamos, Colonel Jake meets extraterrestrial beings from Paluvia and Zarga, and they discuss the threat their species collectively face at the hands of Krokos. The three journalists are granted access to information about the Project through Colonel Jake. Together with the President Schaefer, Thaddius Barkley, Commanders Bretta and Parada, Colonel Jake moves to secure the worlds of humans, Paluvians and Zargas.
    The novel is fast-paced, the characters are well thought out, and the dialogue exchanges are superb. Colonel Jake comes off as the kind of hard-headed soldier who has unwavering determination and loyalty to the job at hand. The author has shown tremendous creativity, penning down the descriptions of extraterrestrial beings and their worlds. This book is highly recommended for readers of the sci-fi genre.

    "Great audiobook!!! "
    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook was a great introduction to the sci-fi genre- I was so impressed by this story! To start off, the author does a great job of narrating the audiobook- he is clear and easy to understand. There is also a bonus in the audible version of the book that you’ll have to download to find out! The plot of this story was awesome- it was fast moving, engaging, and intriguing. I listen to my audiobooks in the car and I wanted to drive around for hours just to finish this story. There were so many twists and turns and I was shocked at how original this story was. It was so well developed that somehow the reader can almost imagine these events actually happening. The characters were perfectly developed and relatable. If you like science fiction and politics, this is the book for you! I’ll definitely be recommending this book to family and friends.

    "Even better with audiobook!"

    I love when the authors are the narrators because they know exactly how they want the story to be told. I already read the book, but listening to it made me fall in love with Bretta all over again!

    Richard has an amazing book on his hands, and I found his voice very soothing which really goes with the book. I felt the characters came alive.

    Story
    "Probably a possibility of the near future"
    Would you listen to The Secret Executive Orders again? Why?

    Yes I would.
    It was well narrated. The narrator is able to alter his voice to distinguish different characters. This make it interesting to listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This audible takes your enthusiasm for the sci-fi genre to another level.It takes a very intelligent and deliberate approach fusing politics.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    The author builds his characters very intensely to make them and the story very relatable to its readers. Considering Richard A. Stephen spent a lifetime of his career doing legal work he holds such authority when writing the book. This is evident when tackling the characters Bretta and President Elizabeth Schaefer. The plot of the story is set in 2027 where there are over 200 refugees seeking asylum on earth from another world. The reader’s imagination is then beckoned to explore such a possibility. I think that there is going to come to a time in the world where such occurrences would take place.

    "Really Enjoyable and Thought Provoking."
    What made the experience of listening to The Secret Executive Orders the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed listening to it because the sound is wonderful and great.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have just listened to the audiobook of The Secret Executive Orders and remain stunned by the realism of what can really happen here on Earth in the not-too-distant future. I learned so many real scientific and historic facts in the context of a love story mixed with political and legal realities. Refugees coming from another solar system with both dire warnings and the means of survival for the human race while the President keeps a space military defense a secret from the world? Wow. The strong female roles of the first woman President and the resolute yet vulnerable Bretta are unlike anything I have encountered. The bonus assuredly not found in print were songs from a soundtrack that eerily dovetailed with the story. A must listen for audiobook lovers of science fiction with a crossover of politics, romance, history and science.

    "Highly addictive, enthralling read!"
    What did you love best about The Secret Executive Orders?

    As a true admirer of a sci-fi genre, I must admit that it is not very easy to find a truly great book today, but “The Secret Executive Orders” is definitely kind of a unique one.The story begins in the year of 2028, in the middle of the Nevada desert, where Colonel Jake Allen sequestered three journalists to make a series of exclusive interviews to disclose all secrets of Project Alamos. A military invasion of enormous magnitude is expected on the Earth, and humans, together with aliens from faraway planets Zarga and Paluvia have to withstand the tremendous danger of the green lizard-like creatures Krokos.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author did an outstanding job developing characters, which are so vivid and lively, thus so easy to conceive. Colonel Allen, commanders Bretta and Parada, President Schaefer, Thaddius Barkley, all of them are really impressive! The plot of the book is fast-paced, intriguing, leaving huge space for the reader’s imagination and full of unexpected twists and turns.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I have listened to all the book in one sitting!You will discover the story of the Paluvia invasion, the astonishing and completely stunning secret of the “Feast of the Larians,” the most audacious banquet ever seen on Planet Kroko, and many other amazing events and occurrences on the pages of this book. Personally, I was really excited by the final scene, so touching and greatly mastered, indeed.


    Any additional comments?

    So, if you are in love with extraterrestrial, shuttlecrafts, laser-gamma rifles, scanners, sound detectors and cosmic battles - this book is definitely for you. The “Secret Executive Orders” should not be missed!
