I knew going into this book that a dome was going to come down or up around the city. While it isn’t the same story from Under The Dome, it felt very similar and was glad that even the authors acknowledged this by giving a nod to Stephen King’s book. Also had a bit of War of the Worlds feel. The rest of the plot is your standard need to go rescue someone and the journey that takes them on.
Fast paced and exciting after you get through the initial setup of the story, although other than the whole alien invasion there were some aspects that seemed a little far stretched, even for sci-fi. Definitely has some syfy channel vibes. The two main characters are well developed and you sympathize with Maya and her goal of getting to her children knowing what they have been through with her ex-husband. She is a strong woman who cares too much for her profession and seems to want to be the caregiver to everyone, even when it isn’t in her best interest.
There is a brief part of the plot that revolves around mole people. Always enjoy mole people and their way of life. Sadly they weren’t as involved in the plot as I would have liked and weren’t really necessary for the greater story. From there we are introduced to the aliens coming down from the sky that are going to take over all while Maya keeps trying to get to her kids. Given the large number of books out there like this I’m not totally sure I will continue with the story. In the end I just didn’t think that this offered anything new and was just a mixture of other plots that established themselves.
Chelsea Stephens does a great job narrating. I liked her character voices except for Reno, just didn’t think it fit his personality. Hopefully she will reprise her role for the next books.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
