Publisher's Summary

An extraterrestrial object is discovered off the coast of California - a sphere that can transport humans to other solar systems.

Death-row inmate Russell Harris and nine other convicts are given the chance to save their lives by agreeing to travel as test subjects on the transporter. But when the first volunteer dies a gruesome death, it becomes clear to Russell and his comrades that the venture is little more than a merciless death mission on which they will all perish.

The surviving Transporter project members find themselves on a new planet and establish a colony alongside a group of abandoned soldiers and scientists. But mortal peril approaches, and the battle for survival has only just begun.

endless 2nd half

really liked the 1st half ... then perils-of-pauline on the alien planet got almost laughable, along with the 'solutions'. It ends with a big cliff-hanger, but its not for me.

Fantastic!

The best sci-fi adventure I’ve read in a while. Excellent narrator as well. Well worth your credit!

Interesting tech idea, ignored for ad nauseum

Oh details for atom bomb lots of dead stuff and gore, ignored the cool alien tech for painful fighting with no point, stupid non-ending surprise. Good ideas wrapped in garbage.

Will keep you hooked...

Transport has some bright spots filled with some highs and many lows and does keep one hooked to see what happens next. Is not PG.. has some crude language.. otherwise good sci fi thriller.

Could be our future?

Enjoyed the overall story. Didn’t know I’d get two stories. Still, it is a worthwhile story. Very futuristic about finding a space ship which transported a group people to other worlds. How they survived, how they build a community using resources available.

Uninteresting execution of a cool premise

Struggled to finish this one. Narrator basically had three voices: good guy voice, female voice, and bad guy voice.

Characters had no real internal conflicts (good guys were too good, bad guys too bad, and all female characters were beyond reproach), and I never developed any empathy for any of them.

Then the book just ended. Abruptly.

I'm sure the author is hoping to develop a series of of it, and I'm also sure I won't be reading it.

First half fantastic!

As always the narrator was excellent. The first half of the book was great until what seemed to be a random illogical decision my the protagonist left them stranded on a strange world.. yet despite still having access to an infinite number of other worlds they stayed there for 20 years LOL.. that is all.

Shouty man reads uninventive story

US military inadvertently maroon criminals on a distant planet so they can commit genocide. Yay humans.

Warning. The last paragraph sets it up for a quite possibly even worse sequel.

a story of two halves

this was a great listen overall its basically the first two books in a series . The first book has a great pace to it and plenty of revelations . The second is much slower paced but with a decent payoff and the end left me wanting to find out what will happen . if you love sci fi i would recommend this . If i had to sum it up i would say it sort of gives me the Stargate feels . And I loved that movie !!

Liked it a lot although a little predictable

Yeah, a good listen but I was shouting my phone with solutions to dramatic plot points... actually quite satisfying to be right. I'd gladly listen to the next instalment.

Intriguing solution to space travel.

Most enjoyable story. Bonus two book compilation with an open ending. A great listen for any sci-fi fan.
