Publisher's Summary

There's sabotage from within and a strange virus is infecting the last human survivors of an alien invasion in Nicholas Sansbury Smith's smart and exciting third book in the best-selling Orbs series.

With the alien armies growing stronger, Sophie's biosphere decides to join forces with the team from NTC's submarine. Using data from a surviving satellite, they discover strange alien poles at each of the world's seven highest summits: alien technology that the survivors believe may hold the key to shutting down the alien ships once and for all.

But before the two teams can launch an offensive, the biosphere must deal with sabotage from within and a strange nanotechnology that has infected several of the survivors. As tensions rise, Sophie and team must decide whether their new discovery is worth abandoning the biosphere. The more the team learns, the more they realize that Earth may be beyond saving and that salvation may require leaving the planet forever.

A splendid mix of horror, suspense, and science fiction, Orbs III upends the classic alien invasion story into an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride.

Phenomenal PA series!

Any additional comments?

My only complaint is that it didn’t last long enough. The storyline will keep you engaged from start to finish and in this last book of the series, the strong character development (my personal favorite being submarine Captain Noble) really shines. The author has put them all through “hell” and done a superb job of showing their resilience in the face of near extinction.

This ship flies so humanity survives

Josh here

Man, this series just keeps getting better. The spiders/organics are definitely wreaking havoc and the Earth/humanity are suffering because of it. I continue to be drawn to the team, and even more-so Alexia, as I've watched each of them grow over the three books thus far (and as I move on to book four). As I've stated in other reviews, I am a huge fan of AI and I love witnessing how each author interprets/develops an AI character. Alexia is growing and it makes me wonder about the technicals of her neural net. Likewise, what an interesting take on how the organics are able to impact the crew members (nano-bots, anyone?)

Nick continues to draw me in to his multiverse and I am very excited to see what he/Tony Melchiorri have in store for book four. My hope is that the team on Earth isn't led into a Mark Watney style adventure for the crew on the NTC Sunspot. But alas, I digress, go read this series if you haven't already started. If you are reading reviews for all entries in the series before deciding, hurry up and start already. You won't regret it.

Mankind's Last Stand!

In Orbs 3 mankind fights the alien monsters on the land, in the air and on and under the sea. Our military is dedicated and honorable with Captain Noble leading the struggle. Our scientists continue to come up with creative inventions to help in the fight and our children show humanity's heart and hope as they face the absolute terror of the spiders relentless pursuit of Earth's remaining survivors.

This is a grim struggle but I could not put the book down or stop listening. The author and narrator make me feel the emotions and travel this journey with the characters. When I finished this book I could not wait for Orbs 4 because I could see the promised hope for the future and I wanted to see where the creative Nicholas Sansbury Smith will take his readers.

Great sequel

This is one heck of an action packed book. I'm really glad Bronson Pinchot re-narrated the series as I've stated in other reviews. He really brought the story to life and it was good to have one narrator for all four books. If you enjoy post apoc fiction Nicholas Sansbury Smith and Bronson Pinchot are a great team!
