Publisher's Summary

The War Of The Worlds Alien Invasion Continues In This Sci-Fi Audio Book Sequel – Includes Original Music And Action!
The terror of the coming of the Martians has become a distant memory, a bad dream that has faded with time. It is now 1913 and the cosy, suburban life of the writer from H G Wells' iconic 'The War Of The Worlds' descends again into a Martian nightmare. A cylinder from the previous invasion has been unearthed in Wales, intact and completely sealed from the Earth's atmosphere, then transported to London for no apparent reason. It is unclear whether there are Martians still alive inside it after more than a decade. 
The situation worsens. Ogilvy the astronomer reveals that in three months, the Martians are set to invade in vast numbers, just before Christmas. Having learned hard lessons about deadly bacteria, the Martians are set on the conquest of our planet. 
On a hunch, the writer takes his wife with him to Mount Tryfan in Wales where they make a surprising discovery, but is it significant? With no realistic defence against Martian tripods and heat rays, the government has no choice and adopts the writer's plan. But time is short, too short. Only a single hope now stands in the way of the Martian onslaught and The Day of the Martians...

They're coming back

The story was good. Felt like it needed to be longer because I didn’t think this told that much story. It did seem to have the old radio feel and I greatly appreciated that. I listen to a lot of old radio stories and this really sounded and felt like an old time story. Was perfectly fitting for a sequel to the original radio narration. Other than wanting a little more action my only complaint is that this was too short and I wanted more of the story. Look forward to the next volume.
I love full production stories. Really wish more audible stories were. The sound and narration on this story was great. The two narrators did a good job and I hope they both do volume II soon.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

A Little Diamond From Mars!

When I saw the author asking for reviewers on Goodreads for this I was intrigued,albeit it's fair to say a little dubious. Anyone approaching The War of the Worlds with music and voice following Mr Wayne's wonderful musical is surely just setting themselves up for people like me to lambast them . . .

But this is not a musical, it's one of those rare things, a mostly straight up Audiobook heavily backed by sound effects and incidental music that really works. Previously I've very much thought that what normally tends to succeed is either full cast audio productions like Audible have been producing or straight ahead audiobooks. Some books do have a little music and / or sound but they often seem like afterthoughts.

Written very much in the style of a sci-fi classic Wilburson evokes the feel of H G Wells but has also made the music and effects an integral part of his production. I wouldn't say that the narration has the very best of voice acting but for want of a better word the voices are just so splendidly appropriate and carry the story well. I loved this but I know that when music and effects are so prominent some people are not so keen, check the audio sample, it demonstrates some of the louder background. If you're okay with that it's not always that prominent and if you enjoy this brief snippet you should be fine with the rest.

The story itself is told very much like the original and moves fast with the glorious naiveté of a classic sci-fi novella. If like me you still carry visions of Martian fighting machines striding across London I think you'll smile as you listen to this and how the Earth responds to another deadly threat from the red planet.

The chances of this working so well might not have been quite a million to one but the author is clearly a talented fellow and has beaten the odds to produce a little Martian diamond.

Very Enjoyable

Really enjoyed the music, and the narrators made the characters seem very lifelike. I'm not familiar with the War of the Worlds, but enjoyed Day of the Martians as a standalone audiobook. Looking forward to the next one!
