Publisher's Summary

Thank you, thank you, thank you all for coming. What a great-looking group of people we have here today. As your president, I feel it’s important to tell you all about this guy. He’s a great guy. A real stand-up guy. A real go-getter. His name is Marc Havak, and let me tell you, this guy is going to be huge. 

See, when the aliens came down and told us they’d enslave all of the human race if we didn’t send our bigliest warrior to participate in their arena death games, I laughed at them. It was really funny because they obviously didn’t know who they were dealing with. Know what I mean? Then they said they would pick the greatest warrior, and they picked Marc Havak. He seemed like such an average guy, but he was a true-blue American. He even worked as a truck driver! That’s the kind of good guy we want defending us from aliens. 

I took one look at Marc and realized he was just the right guy to save our planet. I always make the best decisions, and this one was one of the best decisions. Turns out Marc was really good at kicking alien ass. He won all the games, got all the prizes, and slept with all the hot alien women. And let me tell you, these women are some real beauties, and they don’t mind sharing Marc. He is just that great. Of course, he’s still not quite as accomplished as I am, but no one is. 

There is more to it than that. You should check his story out. It’s a great story. A fantastic story. One of the best, and I know good stories. You’ll love it.

he really did a great job

I thoroughly enjoyed this book due to the fact it was a great blend of action as well as a great supporting cast around the MC. Another great plus for the author is he didn't shy away from sex but it was in no way graphic like some authors like to make it.

Good story idea. Buuuutttt...

too much harem bs like a horny teen wrote the book. feels like most of what i heard was a young man gawking over hot alien women. Oh and there is a little bit of story in between.

A good listen

Entertaining, Joshua Story did a nice job bringing this story to life keeping me listening. Logan Jacobs came up with a nice story that has a little different feel then others in this style of book. I listen to a lot of books as I drive around the county and this one was funny with an interesting concept and the characters kept me going with personalities Joshua brought to them. Over all I’ll be looking foreword to the next installment this new series.

A truly well done audiobook.

I have read the book and that was a really great read. The performance in this book was very good. Voices were great and varied, no hiccups in the story telling.

A wacky and wild entertaining ride.

Pleasantly surprised by a refreshing and wacky story.

The beginning was a bit different than I expected and initially made me hesitate to continue.. but I very soon found myself absorbed and unable to stop listening.

A very comedic, self-aware, and enjoyable adventure.

Slap stick and cosmic

Fast paced smart ass hilarity from start to finish with a small twinge of adult situations that entertain without devolving into ignorance. I’m buying book two now and hope more are yet to come.

The narration was eloquent and fast paced like the story and the sound level was a beautiful constant that made this a truly enjoyable experience.

Well done team. I’m enjoying this series as much as I did when I first earned my own “LEEROY JENKINS!!!”
