Publisher's Summary

In the distant future, humans wage war against the alien planet Caeorleia, with no tactic off-limits if it will help the humans get their hands on Caeorleia's resources. Ask Ryker. He thought he volunteered for a simple experiment that would help his government in the war. He didn't realize sadistic doctors would turn him into the experiment - by injecting him with blood from a captured Caeorleian, Seral Iorflas.
Nor did Ryker realize he'd be sent to sabotage a planet full of the very beings his world is battling, beings who kill humans on sight. But then, thanks to the experiment that irrevocably changed him, he isn't exactly human any longer - and with each passing day, as his blood bond with Seral strengthens, he's less and less sure as to whose side he's on.

I really enjoyed the story!

I thought that the main characters were great. Kind of a futuristic Romeo and Romeo. I would recommend this book to listeners

A Pleasant Surprise!

If you could sum up The Experiment in three words, what would they be?

Aliens. Sex. Revenge.


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

The first time Ryker was being examined by the doctors on Caeorleia and then later had to explain some of what he had endured while being on the ship prior to arriving on Caeorleia. The entire scene was emotional and my heart bleed for Ryker.


Have you listened to any of Shaun Leonhardt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not prior to listening to this book, but he did an amazing job (especially considering all the foreign words) and I will for sure be looking for other books narrated by him.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A hero with nothing to loose... or so he thought.


Any additional comments?

I don't read alien books, but my friend had gotten this audio book and had been giving me text updates over how ridiculous this book was. It made me really curious, so I got it thinking it would be awful. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this was not the case. I found instead that the book was incredibly well thought out with lots on interesting characters, scenes, and a ton of originality. I liked everything about it.

Its not perfect, some things could obviously be tweaked, but for the most part it was fun to listen to. If there was a little more humor maybe to balance it all out, it would be perfect.

I know there is a published sequel and I hope more then anything that it is turned into an audio book as well.
