Publisher's Summary

Crashing into the streets of London, she fell to an Earth under siege by a mysterious race known as the Otherworlders. But as foreign as the aliens are, so is she to those who find her.
Thomas Laybourne, a tinker and weapons designer, finds the unconscious star girl and takes her back to his flat. Aided by his friend, Doctor Hunter, and a grumpy clothier named Mattie, he begins trying to determine who she is and why she has chosen the darkest days in human history to arrive.
With most of the world under alien control, only Britain remains as the vestige of human resistance; but the end is approaching, unless Laybourne's latest weapon can stop them. As he finishes up the weapon, his attention is drawn more and more to the beauty and amazing powers of the star girl.
Can they stop their advance and save the empire in time? Or is humanity destined to end beneath the dark clouds of the aliens?

A very nice exciting shor story

Any additional comments?

This was another short listen by this author who has the knack to put a lot into a short time frame. This was a very exciting action adventure full of thrills as the author takes you on a journey of supernatural meeting humans. Aliens have taken over London and are working on taking over the world. They have blocked out the sunlight for the most part leaving nothing but black clouds. As the humans try to find a way to get back their country a lady comes into their lives. Where she came from and how she acts if very much a mystery, they are shocked to see all that she is able to do.

It is hard for me to pick a favorite character there are so many that grab you and pull you in. Keely is a wonder and a thrill to picture from the way she dresses to the way she carries herself. Thomas is a sweet nerd who is a delight as he designs weapons to help take down the aliens. Doctor Hunter is a very nice sweet man who does his best to help Keely find her way and learn of the country she is in. Mattie I just loved her attitude but I think she is more a sweet old lady who is lonely.

I loved Phil Mayes accent he was a delight to listen to. I thought his tones were great, his emotion outstanding. He really made you feel each emotion of all the characters. You had no trouble knowing who was speaking whether it was male or female. You could hear him swallow from time to time but it didn't take away from the listen. There was no background noise and his tones were even throughout. If he took a break you could not tell. I look forward to listening to more audios from this narrator.

The author gives you a wonderful exciting, thrilling read/listen that was a delight. There wasn't a character that I didn't like. His story telling is outstanding as he pulls you in and takes you to another place and time. The only thing I would have liked to have known was more about Keely. Where she came from and why London, what does she really expect the human to do. Is she friend or not? I thought the author filled in the rest of the story very well never leaving you guessing. It is so hard to put everything that needs to be told in a short story but I feel this author does a wonderful job of it. I am looking forward to listening to more audio from him.

Very Enjoyable

Any additional comments?

It is a well-written action packed with awesome story line. I really love Keely as the key character, she is enigmatic and a countless lead. I enjoyed this story thoroughly. It was a great story from first line to the last, Keely after she falls from the sky. Very enjoyable.

Different Idea Presented Well

Any additional comments?

A different idea is presented by this author in this story. It is the idea of the girl dropping to Earth among the crisis of alien defeat fascinating and charming. It is a fun, a good quest, sometimes funny, sometimes loving, and sometimes electrifying as well. A complete story.
