Description

They are coming. The countdown has begun.

First visible only as blips on a telescope image, the discovery of objects approaching from Jupiter's orbit immediately sets humanity on edge. NASA doesn't even bother to deny the alien ships' existence. The popular Astral space app (broadcasting from the far side of the moon and accessible by anyone with Internet) has already shown the populace what is coming. So the news has turned from evasion to triage, urging calm and offering the few facts they have:

The objects are enormous, perfectly round spheres numbering in the dozens, maybe hundreds. They are on an approach vector for Earth. And they will arrive in six days.

Great base story riddled with misogyny and incest

The main idea is great. Ray Porter is Great, like sooooo good. The characters are good for the most part other than a clearly divided line between men and women and the most stereotyped version of each. Alot of character development is even in good spirit but misses the mark with random incestual fantasies between the son and his step mom. Also in the second book the teenage girl becomes of age and becomes the center of much juvinille sex talk. Also does it matter how often the teenage son jacks off to his step mom ? No.... Take out all that garbage and this divided gender BS and it would be great. No incest and no mysoginy would also mean it's only one book. I really want to know what happens but I just can't listen to the trash that seems to have been injected for filler. And Ray.. if you read this... You made it tolerable at best and if it was read by anyone else, I would assume high schools boys got ahold of a typewriter.. also Im a dude and probably a more stereotypical one and like.. it's just gross and dumb. Audible owes me hours of my life back and but want cliff notes on the other 8000 books or whatever cause the concept is crazy interesting. The writing is BS. I listened to this because of the quality that BOB delivered... Why doesn't Bob have 20 books. It isn't fair. Change my mind audible.

Story is good. But poorly divided.

Equivalent to EA games monetization of the game world, Audible is killing good stories by partitioning them to make more money. Movies do not even stop like this.

shame on you.

Don’t bother.

Ray you are great. But this story is a waste of time.
So much useless info. Basic mistakes made by a supposed survivalist. Chapter 17 and all I know is the son is attracted to step mother the mother may be dead and the daughter is pregnant. No aliens no real plot.
So not continuing this series.
Characters are just stupid.

CRAP

"Crap, pure garbage. Poorly written tripe of the
absolute worst kind. Regret even starting it" - Gillian White

that's not my review, but I agree with it, and I didn't pay for the book, thankfully is was an included title, nevertheless I feel the authors owe me for my 3 hours that I tried to listen.

I'll be picking up the second book!

This was a well told tale and the narrator did a fantastic job. I'm invested enough that I want to know what happens next!

If you are looking for a good end of days, alien invasion story, you'll enjoy this.

Can't do it

I tried multiple times to listen to this book. Ray Porter's performance was great, as it always is. I could handle the gender and family role stereotypes but I can't get past the dialog. The bickering is unbearable to me. Maybe you would be fine with it but I couldn't last more than 10 minutes at a time.

Misogynistic, crass, trash

"Crap, pure garbage. Poorly written tripe of the
absolute worst kind. Regret even starting it" - Gillian White

Couldn't agree more, I wish I'd simply trusted Gillian's assessment and moved on.
Ray Porter's narration is excellent as always, but the actual words he's reading are utter trash.

I stuck with it hoping the misogynistic, juvenile, crass dialogue would fade away, it doesn't. It's just gross.

Do not waste your time!

This book is pretty bad. The narrator is great, but the story line itself is mainly about a Rich father and his teenager spoiled kids trying to get to a bunker. The author must love the idea of Rape because every female character dwells on it. It's not what you think it will be story wise.
I never take the time to write a review but this book was so annoying I just had to.

really glad that I listened to the audiobook

Aliens are coming, or at least that’s sure what it looks like. This causes a quick panic because everyone on Earth is completely in the dark as to what they want/need from them. Forcing most people into a panic, the Dempsy’s are trying to get to their underground bunker to escape anything these aliens will throw their way.

The narration, done by Ray Porter was excellent. He’s definitely a great narrator. He gives a great rendition of Meyer Dempsy and the other’s in Dempsy’s family. Porter was obviously an excellent choice, he doesn’t have the “military” man voice that some authors seem to pull off excellently, but that’s good because the main character was a businessman, not a military man. There were no issues with the production, just like every other Podium Publishing audiobook I’ve listened to.

Meyer Dempsy is not someone you would normally feel sorry for. Rich, with a wonderful family, and even a plan on how to survive almost anything. I’m glad that Platt & Truant didn’t dive much deeper into Dempsy’s past because I don’t think I could have felt sorry for them. Following them while they encounter problem after problem. Dempsy was prepared but not as much as he could have been.

Platt & Truant did a wonderful job making you really feel for this family. Within Invasion you go from not being sure what Meyer was thinking–to basically realizing that this man was a genius (other than a few small problems).

I really enjoyed this, I finished it in a few sittings and was really glad that I listened to the audiobook version. I will definitely be checking out the next book in this series (to which there was a 15-ish minute clip at the end of this audiobook). Platt & Truant are easily becoming one of my favorite duo of writers.

Don't be duped

If your looking for sifi, look elsewhere. For 9 hours you get to hear about a family traveling from NYC to Vail. No aliens! I feel ripped off.

High Octane Science Fiction at Its Best

A disclaimer: Johnny B. Truant and Sean Platt are two of my favorite living authors and Ray Porter is one of my favorite narrators. So it's no surprise that I loved this book. For that reason you may want to take this review with a grain of salt.

A word of warning: This book should be rated R. for content. It is not for children.

The aliens are coming! And everyone is losing their shit! Everyone that is, except for Meyer Dempsey. He has a plan. This is the story of his quest to make sure his family is as safe as possible in this brave new world.

This is truly a book you can't put down until it's finished. When I got it on Kindle I read it in a little under 10 hours. It's the first book I finished with my own eyes in 20 years. Usually, I'll buy a book on Kindle, start reading it, give up and wait for the audio version. This story wouldn't let me put it down.

When I saw that Ray Porter was narrating the audio version I know I had to have it. Ray has a way of reading fast-paced, high-energy material that really pulls you in. Also, thanks to Ray the character in the book who most annoyed me was far more tolerable. The voice Ray gave Raj is far less annoying than the one I gave him in my head. Thanks Ray!

If you liked The Beam or Robot Proletariat written by Johnny and Sean you'll love this book. Likewise if you like anything narrated by Ray Porter (especially if you like the Joe Ledger series) you'll love this book.

I hope Ray continues to narrate the series!

Where is book two? Please! I can't wait!

Where does Invasion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best ever. It's not Shakespeare but it is a real page tuner and roller coaster ride.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Invasion?

The entire book is gripping and brilliant

What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is superb. Great characters

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Only my heart thumping and lack of sleep!

Any additional comments?

Please get us book two asap!

True page turner

Alien invasion stories seem to be especially popular right now. Ernest Cline just released Armada. Edward W. Robertson is killing it with his Breakers series. James S.A. Corey’s Expanse series is crushing it, and is set to debut the television series on Syfy soon. While the appeal of the fantastic in what may come from meeting an alien race, and possibly more suspenseful, if they are met soon before their wicked intentions of domination are revealed, the most appealing aspect to these stories are the characters who may be soon to perish.

Invasion, co-written by Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant, has done a phenomenal job taking an entire first book prior to the alien landing to entertain and endear us to a cast of characters ripe for an emotional disaster. On the surface of the story’s outline, the plot seems simple, and if the characters were bland, it would be mediocre at best. The aliens have shown up on space footage and a family separated from coast to coast has to find a way to a bunker in Colorado. Most of the story takes place in their cars or walking. While reading, I was amazed at how as a writer I might have been intimidated at how to make this transitional and introductory book entertaining while knowing it will be mostly a travelogue. Platt and Truant are master creators though, so it’s no surprise that the characters they’ve built have so much budding conflict between them that they could have been going to the grocery store on a normal Saturday morning and I would have been hooked.

Our main character, Meyer, is an entrepreneurial tycoon with two teenage kids, a son and a daughter. His son is enduring the beginning of puberty and a star crossed crush with Meyer’s new wife, a hot yogi who’s only fourteen years older than his son. His daughter has a secret and happens to be with her boyfriend when she’s picked up, so now he’s forced to go with them instead of going to his family. His new wife is struggling with the changes she’ll have to make to survive in this new world, as well as a jealousy over possible lingering romance between Meyer and his ex-wife. Everything from dialogue to getting into their inner thoughts keeps this story highly engaging and one of the best stories I’ve read this year. The ending really took me by surprise and I immediately had to get started on Book Two, Contact.

I listened to a few chapters of the audiobook, but I didn’t want to wait until I had a moment to listen, so I read this every chance I could in ebook. I have the paperback, too–one of the perks of being a newsletter subscriber and winning a giveaway–but I read way too quickly to make it to the paper version. Anyway, my point was to mention the narrator, R.C. Bray is awesome as always, so if you prefer audiobooks, definitely pick this one up.

I hear a lot of books called page turners, but this one truly stands out as earning such praise.

Not SciFi - Lead in to buy Book 2

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

All about a family driving, but if you buy Book 2 they say the Aliens will come then. Somewhere I missed the fact this will be or is a series and this book was just the lead in to get you to purchase more.

Has Invasion turned you off from other books in this genre?

Maybe

What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

Ray Porter is always great that's why I purchased this book.

Any additional comments?

I feel like I wasted not only my time but my money as well.

Tedious and boring

This is probably the most tedious and boring book I’ve listened to in years. If you’ve ever driven cross country in a car full of whining children then you know what this book is about. It’s a week long road trip to hell. If I was the lead character I would have ditched everyone by the side of the road after the 3rd day. By the end of the book I was skipping to the end of each chapter after listening to only 2 or 3 minutes of bickering and complaining. It was all I could take. And the ending? It was totally retarded. They guy after suffering through all that BS walks outside and allows himself to be abducted? What a stupid ending. Sorry but I will not be reading the next 36 books of this trilogy from hell.
