Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Commander Jason Reynolds has had a string of bad luck lately - evident by the uncomfortable house arrest bracelet strapped to his right ankle. Worse yet, he's relegated to his grandfather's old house and rambling scrapyard. To complicate things, the women in his life are pulling from every direction. But it's through a bizarre turn of events that Jason is led to a dried up subterranean aquifer hundreds of feet below ground. Here he discovers an advanced alien spacecraft, one that will propel his life in a new direction.
The adventure begins…and with it new troubles for Jason: The Craing, an unstoppable interstellar threat, is headed right for Earth. A desperate situation goes from bad to worse as the Alliance crumbles.
Fortunately, Jason's unorthodox and impetuous nature seems to work in his favor as he moves up to the captain's chair. First order of business is to reconnect with his SEAL team compatriots and face this enemy head on. What's at stake? The very survival of the human race.

Wait! Huh? What?

At first I took this audiobook for pulp si-fi and intended to listen with a modicum of disinterest as I went through my daily rituals, ear buds dangling in their usual position. Then, as the penultimate battle approached, I went into serious listener mode. 'This is going to be good,' I thought. Not!

The book ends without resolution and in the middle of a space battle where tactics (human) are pitted against overwhelming numbers (alien). What happened? Who knows? You have to buy the second book.

Unlike Jack Campbell, who resolves the dilemma before setting up a new one for readers to ponder, McGinnis churns pulp like an episode of "Orange is the New Black." Want to know what happens…tough luck buddy…spend another credit.

Well…not me…I am returning this wholly unsatisfying example of churn.

Wait for the entire series to come out

I would have given this book a 4 star rating and maybe a 4.5 if that existed if it wasn't for the ending of this book. Granted, I know the author wanted to leave the reader with a cliffhanger but to stop mid action and declare end of story? If you are like me and need some sort of resolution, then wait for the series to be completed. At this writing there is a second book but ends in the same manner. I really did enjoy the story but to be honest, I feel a bit cheated - like the author lacked the confidence I would buy his next book unless he left the reader hanging mid air. That way he could be assured I'd buy the next book just so I could get resolution to the story.
