Brilliant world building!

The first thing to catch my attention about this was it's cover. Very intriguing!! Then I saw who was narrating and I definitely had to listen. Andrew Tell is such an amazing narrator. He always delivers and is clear, concise and has a range of tones and cadences that always make the book come alive. Thoroughly enjoyed his performance in this one.

When I first started this, I was a little put off with the POVs. It felt disjointed and I wasn't sure what was going on. But the story came together and clicked and I realised that the author set an amazing scene and had me gripped from the get go. I thought the POVs was switched from Earth to the Space Ship, but I was confused because they were on about Earth being destroyed. But it finally clicked and I realised who Tev was. It's a nice change of pace when humans are the aliens ;) Lol.

The world building was awesome. I loved finding out about Tev and his world, I also loved being on the ship and following those characters and finding out their story. The world building is expertly written and developed and I really hope we see more!!

The characters are another major bonus. Each were well written and developed, and I was rooting for each for different reasons. I don't want to go into too much detail about them as this is a story that's best experienced first hand, but I will say that I loved Tev. In fact, there wasn't a single character I didn't like.

Even though a whole lot didn't happen in the book, it was still a fast paced and entertaining read. I listened to this in a day and didn't want it to end. I really hope there is more planned for this and it will become a series. Highly recommend.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

WOW, just WOW, what a action packed story!

Would you listen to Primal Dawn again? Why?

Normally I never re-read but yes, and I would love to get the next book!

Any additional comments?

Primal Dawn (Primal #1) by Ryan Kirk (Author) and Andrew Tell (Narrator) was one heck of a book! I absolutely enjoyed the heck out of it! A group of scientist space explorers are sent to a planet that may have life. Oh, it has life alright, human life! Primitive but human and they don't know what to make of these beings. So they attack with their bows and arrows. Nothing can hurt the super armor of the suits they wear but astronauts, who has some PTSD from battle, goes nuts and shooting... it was downhill from there. An action packed story that gets better and better as the story goes. Wow, surprises, twists, and lots of action. LOVED it! The narration was excellent! Perfect in all ways, it seamlessly blended an already great story into a wonderful story! Sci-fi space adventure, first contact, and humanity story all rolled up in one!
