TUHRELEVIM - the initials of those integrally involved in discovering the planet and planning its colonization. Many more than just those 10 were involved. Tens of thousands, in fact. Thanks to their efforts to highlight what occurs naturally, Tuhrelevim has a breathable atmosphere, plentiful water sources, beautiful landscapes, and flourishing wildlife, just like on Earth. And for the humans, therein lies the problem....

Captain Nev and his squad, who are tasked with locating missing soldiers, suddenly find themselves at war with the fierce beasts. As they desperately fight for survival against this cunning, brutal, and relentless enemy, the devastating secrets of their mission are revealed.

Easy creature feature read!

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this!! It's the type of book that would make a great B movie and one I'd definitely watch.

The gist of the plot is that humans are trying to inhabit another planet, but the planet they have chosen is home to smart alien creatures that are pretty hard to kill. Can the people make this place their new home, or is there worse things to come!! It's fast paced and quite an entertaining read too. I liked the twist at the end also. I listened to it in a day and wanted to read more by this author.

The majority of the characters are military and are well written and developed, though I do wish there were some female military officers!! The action is described really well and there's just enough gore to satisfy the horror element ;) So in all, a good, easy and quick read. I will definitely have to check out more from this author.

Adam Verner read this really well. He was clear and easy to follow and had plenty of tones and voices.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

ENTERTAINING MILITARY/ALIEN STORY

Great action/sci-fi story!
I really enjoyed the listen - short but packed with good characters, action and conflict. See what happens when we try to take over an alien planet, and they don't cave easily!
Well written, and also enjoyed the narration, great story!

Ravagers

Good story about intelligent animals kick invading "Humans" butts. My main issue with the story was the transition between chapters especially the first part of the book. Seemed liked the author was quite sure how to end each chapter. The narrator did a pretty good job. I received this audio book for free through Audiobook for my unbiased review.

Moving into a bad neighborhood!

Marines on an alien planet fighting ravenous beasts; sound familiar? Earth is overpopulated and a new home is needed for the overflow. Planet Terrellivan(?) is that place, but the current inhabitants are big, vicious, intelligent, and hungry and do not want company. Our heroic Captain Nev and his team are sent by the devious Colonel Horn to find the previous team, which is mysteriously MIA. Nev will find there is much more to his mission than revealed to him. The plot is not new, but the characters are developed and there’s plenty of action. Three.point.five. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

Decent Aliens rehash

Okay here goes...

THIS IS ALIENS!!

Sorry for shouting, but this an aliens rehash. We have a bunch of hardass xenobait marines on an alien world, fighting against an apparently superior foe. Sadly for this bunch, Ripley doesn't come and save their sorry asses. There's the obvious setup from (slightly) behind the scenes figures, but at its heart it's a "save the colonists" deal.

Still, there are a couple of neat twists, and if the author had painted the Bad Guy as a more sympathetic character (and could have), I'd have given this another star. To be honest, I'd prefer this if it was a movie. Do you hear that author person? Turn it into a screenplay and make it a movie!

great if you manage your expectations

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a well narrated and entertaining sci fi story. Well, sci fi monster story, that is. It comes across a lot like Aliens or Pitch Black, in that the space soldiers are hunted by things much more dangerous than they are. Not a lot of plot, but plenty of action. As long as you manage expectations, this is a great listen.

Monster story

Ravagers tells the tale of a military unit sent to check on another military unit dispatched to this new world. But bad news for the soldiers: this world is occupied by creatures much bigger, meaner and deadlier than your average marine. As the Search & Rescue op turns into a fight for survival, these Ravagers show greater levels of cunning and possibly intelligence, leading to a showdown when once again, we see that once again, the oxymoronic term 'military intelligence' might actually know something more than the grunts on the ground get to know...

Adam Verner does a good job creating an atmosphere of tension.

Missing substance

I thought the story was alright but I felt it was missing something that I can't put my finger on. It needs more substance on the backstory as to why and how the troops got into the mess they are in.

Who hunts the hunters?

I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. When people go missing on a distant planet Captain Nev's troops are sent to investigate. With only animals present on the planet what could go wrong? When the animals are much more intelligent and numerous than they were lead to believe it turns into a long strung out fight for survival. Great book just wanted more at the end.
