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.

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.

Good alien invasion story!

Any additional comments?

A very entertaining read from an imaginative author. It's one that I'd certainly recommend to fans of this genre. I would have given it five stars, except for three things. First, since this is a series, I think that this first book would have maybe been more effective (for me) if it had ended somewhat earlier. Not a whole lot earlier, but a bit earlier where there was a bit more tension in the storyline. Second, I liked the narration and it was a nice change to hear some background sound effects! However, when the audio editor inserted the buzzing sound (don't want to say what the sound is, it would be a spoiler), it actually hurt my ears. Ironic, I'd say! But it did give me headaches when I heard that sound. Finally, I appreciated the intention but didn't appreciate the effect of the voice distortion during 'thought bubbles' or internal dialogue of any character. It was like the voice of Oz and I thought that a more subtle effect might have worked better. Other than these little observations, I have nothing else to complain about. I'm glad I listened to the story and enjoyed hearing the author's vision of an alien invasion story!

I provided a review in exchange for a complimentary copy of the audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher.
