Publisher's Summary

In 2166, Earth was destroyed. It wasn't an alien spacefleet firing from above. It was a bomb planted in the center of the planet before humanity even existed. In an instant, the human population dropped from 11 billion to 1,066.
I'm Loris Roderick, set to take command of the Magellan space station. I didn't know I was to become the de facto leader of our species when its survival hung by a thread.
We should run, hide in some corner of the galaxy to eke out what existence we can. But I'd rather we get our revenge.

Overall an entertaining, interesting and enjoyable story. It took me a couple of chapters to really get pulled into the story. It just wasn't holding my attention in the beginning. Once the story got going it got much more interesting and had my full attention.

The story takes several completely unexpected turns, keeping you guessing as to what will happen next. It's also pretty fast paced for the most part. For being a shorter book there is a lot that goes on.

Suspense, intrigue, conspiracies, mutiny, hidden societies, aliens and life altering secrets are all part of this new post Earth world

Humans no longer have a home. Or do they? This was an interesting take on humanity and how humans came to inhabit planet earth. The few survivors left after the destruction of Earth are seeking revenge against those who destroyed the Earth. Once again though they are about to have everything they have ever believed about the human race altered. They never could have been prepared for the truth they were about to discover. Not only do they have to deal with their new reality, they also discover a highly guarded secret that will change their lives. A secret a select few have been hiding from the rest of the population of Earth.

Kirt Graves did a good job overall with the narration. This is the first time I have listened to him narrate a book. He has a nice voice. He also has some really good character voices. His female character voices are really good. The non-character parts are a bit too monotone especially in the beginning. As the story went on he found his rhythm and his non-character narration had a bit more, well….character. Overall an enjoyable listen.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.

Pleasantly surprised by this one.

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

Not applicable.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Earthless?

It isn't one moment. It is the series of moments that occur that begin to fill in the backstory. In the beginning, when the earth is destroyed the narrator basically says "well most likely never know why this happened." then as the story continues it nicely fills in that unmade promise.


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I was not a huge fan of the narrator. A bit too... robotic. But by the end of the book I actually didn't mind him.


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

No idea. The book captures a lot of different subjects. It wouldn't be earthless.
