Publisher's Summary

The year is 0011NE, and mankind is under attack. Hostile forces from other worlds have come to Earth, their motivations a mystery, their objectives unknown. In the face of the alien threat, a global military called the Earth Defense Network - EDEN - was created.
Dawn of Destiny begins the story of Scott Remington, a new graduate of EDEN Academy. It is the first chapter in an epic that will carry him to the ends of the Earth, challenging the very faith he clings to as he confronts a purpose he can barely understand. For Scott, war is more than an occupation. It is the place God has led him. It is his destiny. Only one thing remains to be seen.
Is it a place he's willing to go?

good story overcomes very annoying music and FX

Would you consider the audio edition of Dawn of Destiny to be better than the print version?

Actually, no. It's well read, has a great story and the narrators do a pretty decent job, but the sound effects and music almost made me stop listening

Would you be willing to try another one of Patrick Quance’s performances?

yes...he does a good job.

Any additional comments?

some kind of warning on the book, like, contains inappropriate and annoying background music as well as overly loud FX sounds that make listening difficult....can this be republished without the FX and music?

Full of highly technical battles scenes

This review was originally published way before the Audible release

First thing that drew my attention about Dawn of Destiny was the fact that it was not available on Audible. According to Lee Stephen, Audible does something to the audio quality and he did not want to chance it being degraded in any way. Knowing that Audible is one of, if not the largest audiobook marketplace, I hope he doesn’t loose any of his potential audience.

Full of highly technical battles scenes that, literally, had me frozen on the edge of my seat. Leaving me with nothing else to do but breath a huge sigh of relief, with my heart pounding, when the action has subsided.

There were extended lengths of time between action sequences, for, I assume, character and story building. There are strong religious undertones and periods that will smack you in the face. I didn’t see this coming at all. Earth Defense Network (EDEN), the main character Scott prayed to God several times. While this was all done tastefully, I didn’t think that it added anything to the story at all.

Looking for a fast paced alien invasion military science fiction adventure? Dawn of Destiny will not disappoint.

The audio production was up there with the best “movie” style audiobooks I have listened to. Boasting 30 voice actors all on the top of their game. It is difficult to single any single one out as they all were very enjoyable.

The only fault I could find was the music. Often times being much louder than the performer, leading to me having no idea what was just said. Because of this interference I could not give this category a 5 star rating.
