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.

Well, I've been getting acquainted with Platt/Truant recently and enjoy their work. This was no exception. I thought there were a lot of positive aspects to this story- swift pace, action, general theme.

My only real complaints, if you can call them that, center on the general implausibility of the protagonist and his life story. It's just so oddly juxtaposed against the rest of the plot. Maybe it will end up playing a bigger roll in the series as a whole. We will see. There are lots of ways to make the main character have a ton of money- they chose a very strange one in my opinion.

Very abrupt ending that seemed to negate a lot of the book leading up to the final 5 minutes or so. I'm also banking on the probability that this will make sense in future installments.

Worth a listen and your time. Should end up being a great series.

really glad that I listened to the audiobook

Aliens are coming, or at least that’s sure what it looks like. This causes a quick panic because everyone on Earth is completely in the dark as to what they want/need from them. Forcing most people into a panic, the Dempsy’s are trying to get to their underground bunker to escape anything these aliens will throw their way.

The narration, done by Ray Porter was excellent. He’s definitely a great narrator. He gives a great rendition of Meyer Dempsy and the other’s in Dempsy’s family. Porter was obviously an excellent choice, he doesn’t have the “military” man voice that some authors seem to pull off excellently, but that’s good because the main character was a businessman, not a military man. There were no issues with the production, just like every other Podium Publishing audiobook I’ve listened to.

Meyer Dempsy is not someone you would normally feel sorry for. Rich, with a wonderful family, and even a plan on how to survive almost anything. I’m glad that Platt & Truant didn’t dive much deeper into Dempsy’s past because I don’t think I could have felt sorry for them. Following them while they encounter problem after problem. Dempsy was prepared but not as much as he could have been.

Platt & Truant did a wonderful job making you really feel for this family. Within Invasion you go from not being sure what Meyer was thinking–to basically realizing that this man was a genius (other than a few small problems).

I really enjoyed this, I finished it in a few sittings and was really glad that I listened to the audiobook version. I will definitely be checking out the next book in this series (to which there was a 15-ish minute clip at the end of this audiobook). Platt & Truant are easily becoming one of my favorite duo of writers.
