Every now and then I like to peruse a narrator's work to see if they might have narrated something else I'd be interested in, and on a whim I grabbed Fear the Sky expecting a middling sci-fi story, I'll be honest the cover art looked like a C level self publish job. But RC Bray did a great job with the martian so why not.
And then the book grabbed me and pulled me through the 20 odd hours till I was wondering why the heck the other two book werent on audible yet because I wanted more.

I really enjoyed Fear The Sky. The plot is original and character development is so good as we watch a young man turn into a hero through hard work and force of will. I was invested in the series immediately. I knew the author had completed at least three books in the Fear Series so I felt comfortable with my investment. (waiting for a good series to publish the next one is something I try to avoid!)
Yet now as I go to get the other two bestselling books in Mr. Moss's series I discover they are not available through Audible!? Each book is a best-seller on it's own and several years old. The narrator is putting our new works. The thing is it is not just one series. I myself have the same issue with three GREAT series Audible starts then dropped.
I am very eager to continue : Trevor H. Cooley's, Bowl of Souls series is completed through book 8 yet only 3 are available on Audible, each VERY successful and Author Sara King has a popular bestselling series thar Audible only taped one of.
Still, this book deserves 5 stars and is worth the cost.
Beware when you're looking for a good series, just because this series has been completed and the narrator is working do not assume Audible has picked up

What did you like about this audiobook?
I throughly enjoyed this audiobook. Not being a big fan of Scif, I was hesitant on getting this book, but the whole idea of alien invasion grabbed my attention, and from the start I couldn't stop listening.
How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?
I am now looking for other books about Alien invasion.
Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?
The book could have done with some heavy editing, but overall it didn't spoil or distract from a great story.
What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?
The narrator was perfect. Having listened to him on The Martian, I knew what to expect from his voice, and he certainly didn't disappoint on this book.
Do you have any additional comments?
Highly recommend for everyone to give this book a try.

I'm a sucker for earth invasion sf and this was right up my street. Rooted in a real sense of plausibility and science knowledge, this story moves through the gears and keeps you hooked. Love how the invasion is discovered bit by bit and knowledge of it known by a very few. I know books 2 and 3 are out there to read but I'm hoping the Audio books will be out soon, cos the narration is perfect in its sense of suspense.
