Jesse is in history class when a formidable, efficient race of aliens quietly takes over the earth in less time than it takes him to brush his teeth. Most humans simply fall asleep and never wake up. In moments, everyone Jesse knows and loves is gone, and he finds that he is now a slave to an inept alien leader. On the bright side, he discovers he’s developing telepathic powers and has attracted the attention of two beautiful girls.
As the aliens prepare for full-scale colonization, Jesse and his new friends plot an escape attempt. But if they succeed, is there anywhere left to go?
Brian Yansky offers a funny, grim novel packed with everything boys and sci-fi fans love: aliens, humor, action, and a healthy dose of triumph.
This was my first Audible book and I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story was interesting, vivid, and funny at the right times. The characters, both heroes and villains, were engaging. The narrator was great. Granted, this was my first audible book so I have little room for comparison, but I found nothing I disliked about the performance. The book was just short enough to be listened to on one extended drive and the time just flew by. I have already recommended it to family and friends.
