When an alien horde uses time loops to manipulate and enslave humanity, a Marine and her daughter are earth's best chance for survival.
Quinn was a Marine sergeant hell-bent on ensuring that her young daughter had a world to grow up in. Now that an alien armada known as the Syndicate has invaded, that seems like a distant dream that will never be realized. But rather than accepting that the world she wanted was over, Quinn organizes a ragtag group of Marines and resistance fighters who take the fight to the aliens, even as they discover that things are not as they appear to be.
The world is on fire and Quinn and her small band of freedom fighters are the extinguisher.
The alien invasion is over and an occupation has begun. Trying to reach her mother, Quinn's daughter, Samantha, has been stranded in a no-man's land of shattered cities, broken dreams, and refugees. Already wise beyond her years, Samantha is forced to grow up quickly in the face of numerous life-or-death encounters, and soon links up with another group of guerrilla fighters to kick some serious alien butt.
It's not a matter of if mother and daughter's worlds will collide, but when...and once they do, the revolt against the alien invaders will never be the same.
The Syndicate leader, known as the Potentate, watches over everything, biding his time, working feverishly to manipulate the actions of Quinn and the others in the present and in past loops of time. Quinn and her daughter must stop the Syndicate by any means necessary, even if that includes magic and time travel.
Get ready for the thrill ride of a lifetime, because it's going to get bloody messy.

A Nice Addition
I really enjoyed listening to this audio version of this story. The narrator brings the characters to life wonderfully. However the thing to me that detracts from the whole story, is the love affair one of the authors has for the character of Xan she is allowed to break multiple rules w/in the universe. And I don't like it anymore here than when I read it, Marines having to apologise for killing terrorists sorry resistance fighters that never apologise for any of the atrocities that they committed.

I like marines. They are undoubtedly a creed of bad asses. Some of my best coworkers and staff are marines ( because once a marine always a marine). So let’s be clear that while I have volumes of respect for marines, It’s not an excuse for bad writing. whoever wrote this book was clearly given an orgasm every time they said the word. Moreover when talking about them as the most amazing creatures to walk this green earth, capable of anything and “worth ten of you” ( as oft repeated in book) remember the author was writing with their right hand and likely had had left hand somewhere unmentionable. I realize this sounds crass, but it’s the only way I can fathom how ridiculously mischaracterized the marine Corp is in this book. They were the only military force to survive? In the world? The only force to survive orbital bombardment, air battle, sea battle, and land....and THEN the aliens want their OWN marine Corp,because psshhht...who wouldn’t? (That was sarcasm if u couldn’t tell). Cause in the whole universe when facing unspeakable dark evil, out of a universe of warriors only a marine could....never mind u get the point, and clearly talking about the awesomeness of marines doesn’t get me ‘randy’. Refund an option?

Great box set for Audio
As a previous reader of these books i was interested to see what a difference audio would make to the story.
In a world where Ailens are slowly capturing and killing the human race. Humans are being forced to work and fight for them against their fellow humans with dark times ahead the future seems hopeless.
So it is that we come to see the story of a Marine called Quinn captured and forced to fight for the Humans and her 12 year old daughter Samantha fighting to survive and reunite with her mother as she attempts to escape and kill every Alien she can.
As the story unfolds and tensions and the risks increase we begin to see their is a lot more to this being a simple invasion as behaviours show that their seems to be more to what they want from humanity.
This is 3 books rolled into 1 audio and a great chance to catch up in 1 go and fully experience the excellent skills of our narrator Alyson Johnson. As the 2 main lead characters are female she does a great job showing a mature gruff marine and a tough young girl well.
The make characters are also done quite well although i have seen some manage a little better.
Overall if your a fan of space opera, Alien invasions or even battles with a touch of mystery then you will find a gem hidden within this audio. Justin Sloan has a great career and his sojurn into space and alien warfare has also produced lots more series to complement this one. Ideal for those who want to explore more of a particular universe.
I was gifted this audio and as such is based on my honest opinion and i have chosen to give a review.
