Publisher's Summary

It came from deep space. It sent the signal. Now our computers are killing us, helping the enemy drive us into extinction.

But some of us refuse to die. We fight back. We learn.

Jon Hawkins revives from cryogenic sleep in a drifting SLN battleship. The crew is dead and the main computer has been destroyed. Jon is a soldier, the start of the resistance, the one man with the will to beat the alien death machines that have terminated 1000 races.

This is our hour as we face the ultimate evil, the galactic destroyer of life.

    "A great new series!"

    I always enjoy Mr Heppner and I feel like it's been ages since I last listened to Marc Vietor! He is such a a great narrator.

    Anyway this series is a little like his Doom Star series and the formula works, I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to the next!

    "Refreshing and innovative in concept."

    The storyline kept me interested throughout as I could not assume what course the plot line would take next. It is refreshing to read a book that you can't predict the next turn in the story line. The main enemy in the story was refreshing an innovative. You actually believe this AI could truly exist and be that evil. You can't help but smile when you read about its demise.

    "filled with contradictions and"

    I didn't like this at all. seemed like every chance that author had he repeated stainless steel rat. I wanted to pull my hair out. the story kept describing how we can't use radio to talk cause the enemy could find us but then they would say they were connected to the ships systems.

    Story
    "Starts Slow and Builds"
    Where does A.I. Destroyer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is solidly in the top 50%.


    What other book might you compare A.I. Destroyer to and why?

    It is reminiscent of the Terminator series, though in this instance, the AI is alien in origin.


    What about Marc Vietor’s performance did you like?

    Marc does not distract from the story and his performance was excellent.


    Any additional comments?

    My main comment is that the AI was not all that intelligent, especially for a being that had destroyed multiple civilizations.

    "The lead is not believable"

    No reasonable human would react the way Jon does in most situations. Bummer, the plot is cool though.

    Story
    "When was this written?"

    I wanted to enjoy this book as the subject matter is of great interest to me at the moment, however I found the whole thing confusing.

    Spoilers ahead.

    Firstly there are Communist Secret Police in the future? That didn't make sense to me, so I figured the writer lived in the Eastern Bloc in the 80s or something, however that's not true, so why are they in there?

    The narration is like something from an American 50s radio play, making the characters seem so shallow, so black and white.

    The story is kind of interesting, but nothing very imaginative.

    I'll skip the other books in the series.

    Story
    "He said, she said"

    I would like a pound for every “said” that was used in this book. Narration also got annoying. Story was good, it was just the way the narrator chose how to voice the characters.

    "Not the most original but worth a listen"

    To cut a 9hr story short; it's the Terminator universe in space.

    But It was worth the time i spent listening to it and i fully intent to buy and listen to the other books in the series.

    Story
    "Ok to a point."

    This review has mild spoilers. It's one of those listen that in the first couple of hours you think "I'm really enjoying this".
    Our heroes back story and how he was introduced to us, i really liked, giving us good exposition. The story kind of plodded along, during this period, i would have liked to have found out more about our hero. At no point was i told his age or given any real information about what he looks like. I guess he just a 6ft square jawed white guy.
    To me what really turned this story from a ok listen to a bad one, was the Ex Machina about two thirds through. The "help" literally came from nowhere.
    Sorry mate, really good idea, but poorly executed.
