It was a quiet Seattle morning until the skies filled with fire: without warning, a catastrophic meteor shower caused buildings to crumble and the lights to go out. Out of the rubble, five ordinary people arose to find themselves manifesting undreamed-of abilities.
Will they be enough to do what the military cannot - stop a massive alien invasion before the entire West Coast is destroyed?

Yes, several of the characters were truly annoying (Brian, Laura the wife) and the story wold have been better without them. Also, the beginning of the book when characters are being introduced drags on a bit too long.
It was a truly unique idea for an "alien invasion" story. Very fun! The least interesting would be some of the background on the characters. There was a lot of uninteresting stuff and some of them seemed so whiney and self pitying.
I haven't heard him before but I did enjoy his narration on this book. Though some of the voices were annoying, he could only voice them as they were written.
Absolutely! It was a great twist on alien invasion stories and as I was listening I was thinking what a great movie it would make. I love Super Hero movies and though the characters were not the usual type of Super Heroes it certainly was a fun alternative idea.
I had a hard time giving this a rating. I did enjoy the story very much and liked some of the characters. However, the long introduction to the characters almost made me want to quit and do something else. I also found that much of the profanity was a bit over the top and unnecessary in some situations. The sex "scenes" were really irrelevant to the story line. There were some parts that were hard to follow like creating the "weapon" which didn't make much sense to me. I did end up enjoying it once the "action" started. Really liked the Sean character and also the individual powers that each person received.
