Publisher's Summary

The human race is in trouble. After narrowly claiming victory in the first invasion, an assault by advanced militaristic aliens armed with light speed capable spacecraft is a continuing threat. Even so, Chrysalis is in danger, and Whatsit is determined to rescue his fellow Chrysallamans. It's a task he knows he cannot accomplish without the help of his human brethren. With the threat of future attacks looming, the humans will have to decide whether it's best to go on the defensive at home on Earth or take the fight to its source and save the Chrysallaman race.

Outstanding follow-up to first book!!!

This was a great continuation of the original story. I have to say, I'm typically not a fan of alien stories. They are usually too far out there for me. But this one was probably the closest to a real possibility that I've ever heard. I know it's fiction, but I like at least a bit of realism and feasibility.

Although the story was great, I found myself shaking my head a few times, specifically when the three different species were interacting through dialogue. It occurred to me that the humans would make reference to something that most likely, the other species would have no idea about, but it was passed by as though they all knew about what was mentioned. This happened on several occasions and took away some of the credibility for me. But it was still a wonderful tale.

All of the characters were described in good detail and the dialogue was engaging and funny at times. I especially enjoyed the continued banter between Dr. Heinbaum and MacPherson.

One thing I found particularly interesting is the way in which Miller approached describing the technology and the way in which it worked. He was somewhat detailed with reasoning and sound justification as to why such a thing might work. It made the story that much more believable.

The narration was really good. Pirhalla did a great job setting the tone and articulating the different characters through his many different voices. He really brought the characters to life.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Decent book

Where does Dawn of Chrysalis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I'd put it in the middle. He has many unimaginative names for things like absorbisteel and armorium. Both are materials used on hulls.

Any additional comments?

Dawn of Chrysalis
Here's how I rate

On narrator
5= good read speed, good pronunciation, appealing voice/voices.
4= an issue with one of the above
3= many issues
1-2 I couldn't finish because of his voice

5= good plot, keeps my attention, it doesn't ramble along, good character development
The rest follows a similar to narrator
