Publisher's Summary

They are coming. The countdown has begun.
First visible only as blips on a telescope image, the discovery of objects approaching from Jupiter's orbit immediately sets humanity on edge. NASA doesn't even bother to deny the alien ships' existence. The popular Astral space app (broadcasting from the far side of the moon and accessible by anyone with Internet) has already shown the populace what is coming. So the news has turned from evasion to triage, urging calm and offering the few facts they have:
The objects are enormous, perfectly round spheres numbering in the dozens, maybe hundreds. They are on an approach vector for Earth. And they will arrive in six days.

Just what I was looking for!

Loved the slow steady build to the climax of the book. Perfect reader. Can't wait for book 2.

Even perfect preparations fail...

Interesting approach to a doomsday scenario. Not a deep, complex story, but a fun listen. Interesting postulation on how or why a wealthy business mogul would prepare for an apocalypse event.
I love Ray Porter's narration!

Well narrated disappointing story

Would you try another book written by Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant or narrated by Ray Porter?

I'd definitely buy another book narrated by Ray Porter as I've enjoyed previous audiobooks he's narrated and he did a good job with this one too

What could Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

it's not so much that the story is bad...it's just not what I expected having read the synopsis and listened to the samples. I was expecting more science fiction...more focus on the imminent invasion whereas this dealt more with the breakdown of society. I didn't even make it half way through the book but got so bored of the riots etc. Maybe the next book will be better...I'll never know.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

the first few scenes, where the news of the imminent invasion first broke.

Apocalyptic alien invasion of Earth yet again, but this time done much better!

This is a fantastic novel with great narration. The apocalyptic Alien invasion is a theme that recurs often, but somehow this one has been done better than most. My only criticism is that it was a bit short. That could just be because I'm used to reading epic novels now, but to be fair to the authors, this is a series and I already own the next two books.

Not what you'd expect

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

If you like a road trip story, then I guess this is right up your street

Has Invasion put you off other books in this genre?

No, I even went further to read the next and found that for me I had reached the end of the road. A bunker story was not what I was expecting

What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

Does a great job of what I thought was poor material

What character would you cut from Invasion?

All the women characters! They were stereotypes of the worse kind, I found myself loathing their contribution to the story, having said that, I didn't have a single character that I could empathise with, even the primary character was painful.

Any additional comments?

If your into a science fiction story then this will disappoint, book one is a road trip story with no idea of what or who is invading, book two is a bunker story where find out nothing about the aliens, who they are where they are from, what they want. After book two I gave up!
