Rosa De Angelo and Ellen McCarthy are about to become two of the newest victims of SEAS - Severe Environmental Allergy Syndrome. Haunted by dreams of orbs in the night, they wake up to news reports of UFO swarms and alien abductions by the thousands.
Separated from their families, Rosa and Ellen are ushered into isolation tent cities established to prevent the public from having any further exposure to the growing number of SEAS victims.
Ellen, Rosa, and thousands of other victims of SEAS discover that they have been transformed to adjust to life on the alien Grays' planet. Worse yet, they realize they have been covertly used to create and give birth to the Grays' hybrid children.
Rosa and Ellen, along with all SEAS victims, are forced to make the gut-wrenching decision of whether to flee Earth with their love-starved hybrid children or fight for their freedom and escape, even if only to die with their human families.
With Earth headed on a catastrophic course, United States President Barbara Unger is searching for human salvation when she is contacted by two alien species, the Grays and the Guardians, both offering conflicting methods of action to save Earth.
The Grays offer to transport one million humans to their planet, Nuur, mostly women of childbearing age as a safety measure to save humanity. The Guardians insist the Grays plan to use humans to create a dangerous hybrid species that the diminished state of Earth is only temporary, and it will survive this crisis.
Knowing the Grays have manipulated us while the Guardians ulterior motives are unknown, President Barbara Unger will ultimately have to decide who is friend and who is foe. Will she place the fate of the human race into the hands of the Grays.

This is an epic book about alien invasion, a burgeoning sickness, and the attempts that are made to save planet Earth. I'm not a typical sci-fi lover; I stick mostly to horror and mystery/thriller genres, but "Earth's Ultimate Conflict" had me hooked right from the beginning. It has the feel of an old-timey radio show with sound effects and music sprinkled throughout. I really enjoyed this element, it added to the story in a satisfying way, but I can understand how some readers would prefer to just hear the narration.

My only qualm about this story is that it doesn't fit or makes sense for aliens to be talking about a mythical God. Humans in their final hour? Yes. Aliens who are so advanced that they can abduct people from Earth, travel across galaxies, enjoy telepathy... they would absolutely not be thinking in terms of theology. It rang very false to hear non-human aliens discussing God. That mistake *almost* ruined this book for me because it's just so very logically off. That said, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good sci-fi story and isn't sensitive to some themes being nonsensical!

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

Not just for Science Fiction Lovers

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Although I am not a science fiction reader, I found this an amazing story with characters and emotions we can all relate to--even the aliens. The production brought you into the action from the creaks of a floor board to the mist of a crowd.

What other book might you compare Earth's Ultimate Conflict: A Gray Guardians Series to and why?

Since I read very little science fiction, I am unable to make a comparison. However, for those who are drawn to the conflicting emotions of motherhood, Kathy Porter's well developed scenes will draw you in.

What does Peter Jude Ricciardi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Peter has an excellent voice for narration. He also did a phenomenal job of creating voices for the various characters and the sound effects brought you into the story in a movie like way.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The strong pull of Ellen between going with her hybrid children or staying with her husband and human child was compelling. The fate of aliens who had rediscovered their human-like emotions and were to become outcasts was heartbreaking.

Any additional comments?

The characters were believable, even when their situations were not. Porter was able to suspend, reader disbelieve and create an enjoyable story with many characters to root for.
