Bill(a SEAL) & Jane (USAF) battle Galactic Slavers

There are some really nasty Aliens that capture intelligent creatures from undeveloped worlds all over the Galaxy and sell them for genetic experimentation, gladiators and whatever only this time they make the mistake of picking up a Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer and a female. Captain from the Air Force Space Command. They and a group of talented fellow captured aliens take over the ship and start turning the tables on the Slave Traders. Good villains, good fights and good space battles. The narrator did a great job of handling all the voices and kept he action moving. I definitely plan to give the sequel a listen!

Like Living In An Online Adventure game

Escape From Aliens is a fast moving space adventure that keeps its audience guessing what will happen next from the first moment until the last second. The author has created sa cast of aliens from different worlds all with different appearances and voices which the narrator interprets with great aplomb. I would have liked to learned more of the back story of the characters, but I am sure that will come in the author's sequels. The listening experience reminded me of playing a highly engaging adventure game on the internet. Give it a listen. I think you will be pleased.

Not perfect -- but enjoyable.

Both the story and narration could be better. If you like SiFi that allows the good guys to win without loss then this is for you. Will I buy the sequel? Yes... Though unless the writing changes this series will not on the level of Christoper G. Nuttal's the Empire Corps series nor the Expanse series.

Good ScyFy full of action, intrigue and Romance

Good action adventure SciFy book. The noble mission to end the Galactic slave trade made me want to join the crew. Hope they do the sequels soon!

A SEAL doesn't make a good slave

Would you consider the audio edition of Escape from Aliens, Book 1 to be better than the print version?

Pretty traditional Space Opera but the slave angle and the number and variety of aliens make it stand out. Good narration helped. Looking for the sequel.

Bill using feces to block the air vents in his cell to force them to open his door.

Voice of the ship/computer killed story

Reader does a voice over for the ships IA that is just awful.
