Description

Rex Walker always wanted to be like his father: a daring, adventurous man, traveling the world in pursuit of mysterious relics. Now Rex is the same age his father was when he disappeared without a trace. 

While teaching anthropology at a Boston college, Rex attempts to bury the past, until he discovers a hidden clue he can’t ignore. 

With the help of his sidekick Marcus, a former student turned protégé, he teams up with an alien-obsessed billionaire, and they search for the fabled Bridge. 

As an unidentified object nears Pluto, speculation surges. Some hail it as the homecoming of a distant alien race, and this cult is unwavering in its efforts to usher our world into a new era. 

Will Rex solve the puzzle before it’s too late? Find out in Lost Contact, the first installment of The Bridge Sequence by Nathan Hystad, the best-selling author of The Event.

Familiar story line

All the way through I kept thinking that I had read this before. I knew what was going to happen next. I checked my library and saw that this book was published this year. I can only think that is very similar to another book I had read in the past.
Because of the predictability my enjoyment was down a notch but this will not stop me from reading the next instalment when it is published. Ray Porter as usual is one of the best narrators and can make any story riveting.

Reach for the, past?

A wonderful science fiction buffet of consideration that is in and out of this world.

Interesting premise but poor execution

I wanted to like this book so much, it's read by one of my favorite narrators and was recommended by Craig A Falconer, but the book is poorly executed. It doesn't feel believable. The characters feel fake and in the beginning they seem to bribe every single person that they meet. I will give 2 stars for Ray Porter but I do not recommend this book.

Ray Porter Gets Nathan Hystad’s Characters

Enjoyed the story and will get the series as each is released. It felt like an Indiana Jones and National Treasure tale. Nothing new under the sun, I guess.

Wonder Exciting Performance

Ray Porter brought to life the characters and drama of Lost Contact! Excellent adventure with an Indiana Jones type professor seeking to find artifacts that will open a mythical bridge to some unknown destination. The adventure began when his father disappeared decades earlier in a similar quest. In the meantime, objects have appeared in the solar system that are alien in nature headed toward Earth. Add to that a powerful cult seeking to interfere finding the bridge and forming an alliance with the unknown aliens.

Excellent

Wow what a great book. Starts off a little slow, but quickly will grab you and take you for a ride you won't expect. Nice that it wasn't predictable. Ray Porter is his usual masterful self. If you love Ray Porter, come join us on Facebook at 50 Shades of Ray.

Searching for the Means to Open the Bridge

I requested a free review copy of this audiobook. After listening to the ‘Final Days’ series by Nathan Hystad and Jasper T Scott, and superbly narrated by Ray Porter, I had to give this one a listen as well. I am now writing my voluntary opinion of it.

Another reviewer stated ‘Lost Contact’ is “Indiana Jones meets Ancient Aliens Theory”. I agree with this assessment. Rex is following in his archaeologist father’s footsteps. He embarks on a Jones-like world-wide quest, investigating what happened to his vanished father. With cryptic clues to follow, it could be said the book alludes to ‘The DaVinci Code’ too. A cult calling itself The Believers are convinced the ancient inhabitants of Earth are returning home in the spacecraft spotted moving toward Earth. Rex and The Believers are in a race to find the artifacts that open the Bridge, albeit with different agendas in mind.

While there are sci-fi elements in this series starter, it's more an archaeological mystery/thriller. And if you like conspiracies, there’s plenty here to satisfy. Hystad delivers an interesting, well-written novel, complete with complex characters. The book ends at a natural pausing spot, leaving the reader pleased but still wanting more. I look forward to what’s next for Rex after the Bridge is opened. And how the arrival of the mysterious ships will affect Earth.

Ray Porter is one of my favorite narrators. I enjoy the tone and cadence in his voice. He’s skilled at creating differentiation among characters. And like every performance of his I’ve listened to, he perfectly conveys the author’s style of storytelling.

Recommended.

painstakingly boring, tedious pretension

The premise is laughable. The writing juvenile. it was so bad, even Porter couldn't elevate it.

Indiana Jones meets Ancient Alien Theory

I’ve been fascinated by ancient alien theory for years. Getting to listen to a book that is not only narrated by Ray Porter but has also done an amazing job combining Indian Jones and Ancient Alien Theory was exciting and fun. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

Indiana Jones-esque

My go-to listen is something that has some element in it that's not based in reality (sci-fi, fantasy, magic, etc). This book is reminiscent of Indian Jones, but with a sci-fi twist and perfectly fits into my prefered reads.

And I would listen to Ray Porter read the phone book to me, so that didn't hurt.

I am pleased at the decision to release the subsequent books one month apart. Many times I fall in love with a book or books that are part of a series and forget to check back for the rest of the series in a year+.
