Publisher's Summary

From the USA Today best-selling author of Dark Space.

They went to sleep on earth, but where did they wake up?

Darius Drake is desperate to save his daughter, Cassandra. So desperate he's willing to risk their lives in cryo-sleep to give her a future. But the dark, freezing vault where he wakes up is nothing like the luxurious Florida hospital he remembers. Everything about this place is alien to him, even the language. Little does he know how alien it really is.

Darius and his daughter go exploring their new surroundings with a few others from the cryo pods, and they soon discover frozen, mutilated bodies everywhere. The dead are wearing strange uniforms, and they seem to have used some kind of energy weapons to defend themselves, but it wasn't enough. Adding to the mystery, all the doors of the facility have been ripped open, and there are claw marks around them - but what could shred through reinforced metal like paper?

The answer to that question proves more terrifying than any of them could have guessed. There's a war raging, and they've woken up in the middle of it.

Broken Worlds: The Awakening takes you on a tense thrill ride through a frightening future with new mysteries and twists in every minute. Fans of Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica will love this new series: a dark, gritty space opera with unexpected twists, complex characters, and nightmarish antagonists.

Alien/Predator/Star Wars mashup

Entertaining read if unoriginal. I actually liked it but often found myself cringing at the overly-overt Star Wars parallels.

It helped pass my commute time

The awakening wasn't the best sci-fi story I have come across, but it was entertaining enough to keep me going. I have a fairly long commute to work each day and the story helped pass the drive time. I think part of my problem with the story was I had a hard time with the narrator. Something about the intonation of his reading didn't work for me. To be fair, he wasn't a bad narrator overall. I thought he did a fine job with his character voices and he had a clear voice. It just didn't work for me for a reasons I struggle to put my finger on. I ended up reading the end of the story and it was a bit better that way.

It stalls in places

Over all a good story. It stands on its own but it's also ready for a continuation. It's stalls and places but over all I'm happy.

Not Good

This, in my opinion, is quite a juvenile book with mediocre narration. Darius is not what springs to mind when you think of a hero. He is, at best, naive, but simplicity is not really endearing in a sci-fi hero-to-be and a liar even less.

I stuck it out to the end, but, for me, it was a wasted credit.
