Publisher's Summary

The year is 2512, and war rages throughout the Alliance. Warriors are needed, those who have the will, the skills, and the strength to fight this new threat. The cry goes out for battle-hardened soldiers. Like those who fought in the brutal war that nearly destroyed Earth almost 400 years ago. A resurrection program has begun to bring back those few men who had been preserved, and CJ is next. But CJ is no ordinary soldier. He is a war criminal, a man who once fought against humanity. Now they want him to defend it.
The threat to the Alliance deepens further when a nightmarish creature returns from the dead, and with him a new kind of army. Prince Ganbaatar is back, and he wants revenge. If he is not stopped, his vast hordes will be unleashed against the Alliance. He must be beaten at any cost.
CJ awakens in a world that he no longer recognizes. The alien race that created him has united with humanity to form the Alliance. They give him a choice: to lead other military criminals like himself against the terrifying Ganbaatar, or to live the rest of his days behind bars. Posted to a highly advanced and partially organic ship called the Phoenix, CJ's squad must decide whether they will fight for the Alliance or against it. The fate of all civilization in the universe hangs in the balance. The Odyssey has begun!
Battle Beyond Earth, book one of the Phoenix Odyssey series, is a futuristic sci-fi action adventure. It is a standalone story set in the Battle Earth universe.

Narration Painful to the Ears

I have only ever written one other scathing narration, but I feel it necessary to be honest and warn potential listeners away from this audiobook...

I could only make it for about 30 minutes into this book before I had to stop. The narration was so bad I knew I wouldn't be able to finish. The narrator goes from ridiculously over the top, to horrible voices, to unrealistic tones, and was just so horrible I couldn't make it a minute longer...
The narrator didn't have a bad voice, but it was clear that he had little experience with performing book narrations. To be honest, I'm not even sure that I would hold out hope that he will ever be a good narrator if he thought that releasing this audiobook was a good idea. It really calls the author's judgment into question as well...

The story itself (as far as I got) seemed to be a little odd. I can't say for sure since I never finished, but I really didn't care for the story that was being laid out.

I really hate to do this, especially since I got this audiobook for free, but I must be completely honest...
Listeners need to steer clear!


I requested and received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. This review reflects my honest opinion of the work.

This might be a good story.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
This story is totally ruined by the narration. Like I said in the headline, it might be good, but it's really hard to get by the narrators silly voices for hours and be unbiased.
