Loving the Sector 64 series and can’t wait for more

Dean’s Sector 64 brings a new twist to the world of UFOs as we know it. This book kept me engaged and entertained - I’m glad I waited for the RC Bray narrated version as well. He does a great job and I am looking forward to the next chapter.

R.C. Bray could make...

IKEA furniture instructions exciting. overall, a fun story, but a lot of the characters were pretty typical of the genre, and a little unoriginal.
I'll buy the second book.

Sardonically sardonic

The story was good, narrator awesome (as usual)
I enjoyed this book...here's the catch...sort of. There were a couple of things that annoyed me about it.
1. He said sardonically, he thought sardonically, he said with a sardonic smile. I am 52 years old and I'm pretty sure that if you added up all the "sardonics" from the thousands of books I've read (listened to), it would not equal how many times this word was used in this book.
2. Women are portrayed as being teary eyed, overly emotional and dramatic . Being a woman I kept rolling my eyes and muttering sardonically "Oh Puhleeeze"
Storyline excellent and if you can get past all the sardonics and twitty twits, it's a light listen.

It's okay..

Story has a very interesting premise, but I have problems with the realism of it all. Most characters are supposed to be hotshot pilots, but often don't seem to be any steelier than a girl guide. Also, it's extremely silly that these badass fighter pilots would think it makes sense to board an advanced alien ship, armed only with standard police firearms...do special forces not exist in this world?

RC Bray is great as always. Too bad the story doesn't match the performance quality.

Unnecessary and Stupid romance ruined book

Mr. Cole seems to be the kind of author who doesn't have much experience writing about romance. It started with a bang and I thought WOW this is going to be a good one. I couldn't have been more wrong. The romantic relationship in this book ruined it for me. It was poorly written and did not advance the plot in anyway. It was complete sappy crap. "Jake looked into her beautiful crystal blue eyes and fell another day in love with her". Really? Why just another day? Why not another 2 or 3 days? Hell, why not another week or another month? Of course, the female protagonist was the typical beautiful blue eyed bombshell blonde. No brunettes for this author. I couldn't finish the book. I just could not do it. I'd pass over this book for something better written.

As per usual for a great story read by R. C. Bray.

Just great. A new, yet refreshing and simplistic plot. Based on the "Aliens Attack" theme, but not as simple as one might think. There are pre-stories that lend sci-fi credibility. There are post-apocalyptic undertones which do not become overbearing. Good writing. Amazing narration. Fun, interesting more than with a read (listen).

Fanfuckingtastic!!!

I can't stress enough how much I loved this story. this isn't your campy Roland Emmerich alien invasion story, it's smart SciFi, Dean Cole is on fire with this series. R.C. Bray is a genius narrator. he can get inside these characters heads, becoming them, making them all believable, putting the listener in the story. I can't wait for the next audiobook to be released!

More, more, more!

This was a fantastic, exhilarating story! I can't wait for RC Bray's recordings of the additional books to come out!

it would be best to listen to First Contact prior to this one for additional background, but it's not required.

5-Stars LoLAhhhAhaHahAhahLoL

PC Notice: Less than 0.05% of Audible‘s listenership deemed the following question to be hurtful and offensive: “Did you find this review helpful?” In response to this meager group of contemptible listeners and their grievances Audible chose to remove “No” as an optional answer. Additionally, Audible stopped arranging reviews sequentially based on “the number of people who found them helpful”. (Insert angry face and exploding volcano head emoji)

Ambush has absolutely nothing in common with all of the following: getting ambushed, helicopters, action, quality writing, quality plot lines, quality themes, or quality characters — however, Ambush wins 1st place for “most dumbest abhorrent moronic nauseating female protagonist ever”, 2nd place for “most dumbest male protagonist ever” (see Jack Campbell’s Lost Fleet series for 1st place), and 1st place for “most dumbest aliens in the galaxy”.

The only good thing here is RC. But, being an avid RC fan, I could hear the poor guy struggling to narrate his way through the myriad exhaustively repetitive explanations and pathetic dialogue.

interesting premise that is never expanded upon

starts out all right but once the curtain is pulled back it's like a pair of socks after you open a Christmas present.

Meh

Mildly interesting story, However, I am having a hard time with the dialogue, it's pedestrian and predictable. I can't even finish this one. there are better books like Expeditionary Force, The Synchronicity War, Fear the Sky

the pacing is all wrong

sadly, you have to wait about 2h before things get interesting. by "interesting", i refer to 1. the alien villains making an appearance, and 2. the alien villains being the only interesting characters in the book. sure, there's action in the first two hours, sort of an "x-files lite" episode including a shadowy car chase, but seriously...

it's good for authors to experiment with different parts of a genre in order to develop a compelling storyline, character arcs, and so on; however, successful books have to actually deliver on those elements. this book did not.

it is a hard slog to finish this work...
