What did you like best about this story?
The plot has engaging characters, suspenseful plot, exciting battles. I can't wait for many many sequels. It's a great addition to the War of the Worlds universe. Great audiobook.
I received a free copy in exchange for my review from AudiobookBoom

TARGET AUDIENCE: This is a follow up to the War of the Worlds by HG Wells. The author does a terrific job in keeping to the original story. Although it is a Sci-Fi, it is a book that would be especially well received by the Young Adult audience. Just the kind of book that I would refer to my teen sons to read.
PROFANITY AND SEX: None. Well written and tasteful.
STORY: On the second attempt at an Earth invasion they are much more prepared, landing their invasion force throughout the world, but focusing on areas which have low populations. This story chronicles the invasion site in the American West. Unlike the original book by HG Wells this book also gives the unique view of the Martians.
NARRATOR: This narrator is amazing, and is a perfect match for this book. He particularly does well with YA books, and books with multiple voices. You never lose track of who is speaking. Well done.
OVERALL: Absolutely loved this book, just sorry that the next book has not yet been released.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

There were a few things that I really enjoyed about this book, the original concept is well known, but I think this gave us a few more things to think on, and enjoy. :)
The ideas to fight the Martians were pretty cool, and the journey from 'believing they're coming back' to them actually doing just that is exciting. The characters are well developed. Although the death of a loved one really can make you choose a different life path I was glad that the story evolved as it did.
I've listened to a few of Ray's books now, and this was a very refreshing change to the other style of Sci fi, more realistic and enjoyable. (the martians POV was just great, to listen to and to think on, would they really think of us so badly... I guess so. I also think this was truly a good performance because of that, lots of different characters for Ray to dialogue, and they were great to listen to and easy to distinguish.
Totally worth the credit, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you to both writer and narrator.

Throughly enjoyable follow on from the H G Wells novels. Brings new and interesting insights into the concept of the Martians.
