Tate and his father don't exactly get along. As Tate sees it, his father has unreasonably high expectations for Tate to be the best - at everything. Tate finally learns what he's being prepared for when he steals one of his dad's odd tech inventions and mercenaries ambush the school, killing his father in the process and sending Tate on the run from aliens who look just like humans. Even with all he knows, like how to defend himself with useful tools made out of bubblegum, Tate fears he's still inadequate. With the help of his girlfriend and estranged mother, all Tate can really do is keep moving and ensure his father's invention stays out of the hands of his pursuers, and that his father didn't die in vain.
I liked this story a lot. I liked the characters. It was action-packed and, more or less plausible. For it's genre, it had sufficient insight to make it fulfilling. The literary potential of its premise was reasonably well exploited. I was enjoying the hell of of this book.
Then it ended.
Huh? It wasn't literally in the middle of a paragraph but, it sure felt like it was the middle of a chapter. It didn't finish. It just ended. (With an audio book, you don't have tactile notification that you are coming to the last page. I literally looked to see if my player had gone wrong. Surprise! It's over.)
I'd have happily paid into a Kickstarter to support the authors to finish Book One. I was deeply annoyed to have spend hours only to not find out anything about how it turns out.

I enjoyed the narrator, Sarah Fine has a great imagination, and is a fantastic Author.
Twists & turns had me hooked the entire time! Simply amazing! It was fucking great!
Any additional comments?
I have not listened to anything read by Luke Daniels that was not good. He draws you into the book.
