Publisher's Summary

Something has travelled for a billion years to find us - and now it has. 

In space, Commander Mitch Granger and his crew are nearing the end of their scientific mission - along with their covert satellite photography for the military. As they prepare for reentry, an unknown object emerges from the void: the name given to deep, dark space. The object proves impossible to evade. The crew have one option left - to bring the fragment aboard. 

Immediately, all contact with the shuttle is lost. NASA watches helplessly as their craft breaks orbit and heads back to Earth, where it crashes high up in the Revelation Mountains of Alaska. The space agency puts together an emergency recovery team, but the Russians also want the US military photographic data on board. 

The race is on to be the first to the crash site, nearly 10,000 feet up in one of the most inhospitable places on Earth. But there is another problem. Satellite images show that something else came down in the shuttle, something moving about when no one should be alive. And that seems to be growing at an alarming rate. 

NASA needs help and protection. Send in the HAWCs. But even HAWC captain Alex Hunter, the last supersoldier of the Arcadian program, has never come up against a threat so old and from so far....

The best yet!

I never get tired of the series. This is one of the best on the ground science-fiction series I’ve ever read and you should definitely give it a chance. The level of intelligence that goes into writing these books is inspiring and the level of satisfaction I get from reading them is off the charts!

Hey, he found Halo lol.

To be clear, I am not saying he copied Halo. I just couldn't help make connections. Flood, Jackal shields, Mjolnir armor, Brutes, and that's it for the big ones. I loved the book and for me seeing those connections added to the story.

Mispronounced words

The narrator is annoying at times, mispronouncing some words so much I almost didn’t recognize the word. I figured it out based on the context of the script. Cotton mouth and sometimes feels like he is struggling for air. I apologize but he is difficult to listen to st times. I love the author

This guy loves "debris"

The word "debris" was used 23 times in this book. Normally you might not notice an overused word in a 12 hour book, but Sean says debris, and a lot of other words, a little strangely, so then you really start to notice, and cringe each time. Respiratory, skeletal, chitinous, just to name a few.

Another hit

I chose this rating because he always does a great job at storytelling. I love his narrator, he pronounce a few words differently but I just smile as I have listened to him in several books now. If you enjoy sci-fi there is no better writer.
