Publisher's Summary

Air travel during the holiday season. Yuck. Stupid people, flight delays, and long lines at security are pretty much the worst things ever - or so Dirk Bradley thought until a horde of bloodthirsty psychopaths from beyond the stars invaded the airport, cutting a swath of death and destruction through everything he knew and loved. Can he survive the attack and live to tell the tale? What hope does an average Joe have against a race of brutal killers bent on world domination?

Fun, exciting read with a snarky protagonist

This story was a great burst of fun and excitement in a short, condensed book. Dirk Bradley is traveling for Christmas. He's bringing his boyfriend back to the home that he was kicked out of when he was younger. He's wants to reconnect with his family. However, fate is working against him because while he is waiting at the airport for his plane, aliens attack and start slaughtering people. It might sound like the start of a bad SyFy movie but it's no worse than visiting your father's grave when you are suddenly attacked by zombies. (Night of the Living Dead if you missed that.) The story then follows Dirk as he tries to survive and possibly even fight back.

I loved how the main character was constantly snarky and coming up with caustic sarcastic comments against himself. Even as he found himself becoming a leader, he was amazed because he didn't know what he was doing. If that zombie or alien apocalypse ever did come around, that's exactly how I hope I would act. I was a bit dissatisfied about halfway through the book when Dirk got separated from the group he was helping. They weren't mentioned in the rest of the book and seemed kind of forgotten: out of sight, out of mind. But at the same time, the story was following Dirk and since Dirk was separated from the group, then it makes sense that the story no longer follows the group. Still I would have hoped that Dirk had had a passing though of "I hope they are OK." A minor criticism. If Fallon wanted to expand on the story and create a series of books on what happened, I would buy and read every one.

Great story. Original idea.

The Terminal was awesome. It was intense, action packed and quick. Tugs at the heartstrings a time or two and keeps you interested. I listened to it in one sitting. Could not stop.

Brilliant and twisted action/horror novel

What did you love best about The Terminal?

The entire novel was fast-paced, action-packed, and just plain awesome. The main character, Dirk, was likeable, believable, and truly funny, especially if you have a dark, twisted sense of humor like I do.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Terminal?

My favorite part of this book had to be Dirk's inner dialogue which often was laugh out loud funny for people like myself that thrive on dark and disturbing humor. As this book is written in 1st person perspective, the inner dialogue is constant throughout the entire story and I couldn't wait to hear what Dirk was thinking as I progressed through the book.

What about Nik Magill’s performance did you like?

Narration can make or break a story, and I thought Nik did a wonderful job narrating! I will certainly look for other books he has narrated in the future.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Most definitely! Had I had the opportunity, this would easily be a book I could listen to in a single sitting.
