Publisher's Summary

The war is over. Earth is lost. Running is the only option. And it may already be too late.

Caleb is a former Marine Raider and commander of the Vultures, a search and rescue team that's spent the last two years pulling high-value targets out of alien-ravaged cities and shipping them off-world.

When his new orders call for him to join 40,000 survivors aboard the last starship out, he thinks his days of fighting are over. The Deliverance represents a fresh start and a chance to leave the war behind for good.

Except the war won't be as easy to escape as he thought.

And the colony will need a man like Caleb more than he ever imagined.

Enter the universe of the Forgotten with Deliverance, the first book in the Forgotten Colony series. If you're a fan of Aliens, Battlestar Galactica, Starship Troopers, Ender's Game, or Edge of Tomorrow, you'll love this epic military sci-fi thriller.

Good attempt but poor execution

The author has good instincts but he needs help on the military and science of it all (rank structures, tactics, attitude, how massive star ships would be constructed, material science...). He doesn't seem to understand some of the basics and it hurts the story. I wanted it to be good and to his credit much of time you can let it go but there are some persistent errors that can't be explained by the world he's created.

Lacking

Hard to finish. No charter development, and bad decisions, leaves you not caring what happens.

Great Beginning!!

This was a fantastic beginning to the Forgotten Colony saga. M.R. Forbes does an amazing job introducing readers to the characters and "fleshing" them out along the way!! Recommend to any Sci-Fi fan out there!!

It's like Starship Troopers and Alien had a baby

I've been absolutely hooked on the Forgotten universe these past few months and this new addition didn't disappoint in the slightest!
Even if you haven't read the first Forgotten series this stands up on its own as a post apocalyptic series on humanities last ditch effort to free themselves from the Alien menace that has crippled Earth. Its a group of Marines wildly outnumbered and faced with impossible odds as they try to preserve humanity as best they can.
I love the blended genre of Sci-fi/Horror and Forbes does it justice so well. definitely looking forward to book 2

Great beginning store !+

I really enjoy M.R. Forbes as an author. I've read this series out of sequence, but fortunately discovered this prequil.

Great book

The book was great a little fast paced but good can’t wait for the next one. If you read the forgotten books then you will understand this one

Meh

The beginning through me off. The are highly trained marines yet they don't do the basics like covering fire and standing around in active zone with out a weapon razed. Narrator was good. story was predictable.

The story is awesome... Narrator not so much.

I loved the story, however I can't say I'm too big of a fan of the narrator. The previous Forgotten Series left me on my seat so many times with how the narrator read the story. This story actually had me zoning out at times due to his monotone.
