Publisher's Summary

Two hundred years ago, aliens invaded Earth. A violent war followed. The enemy won. Some of us escaped, most of us didn’t.

On Proxima they flourished - the invasion forgotten. On Earth we floundered - the horror began.

Their world is advanced, peaceful, and secure. Our world is broken, savage, and overrun.

A new invasion is coming. A hunger that has swallowed half the universe.

They don’t care which planet we live on. They want to end us all. But where there is life, there is hope. And where there is hope, there are heroes.

Sheriff. Marine. Pilot. Engineer. Centurion. Clone. This time, vengeance will be ours.

NAILED IT

M R Forbes has created a deep universe punctuated with contrasting light made by various characters. Invasion is the beginning of the culmination of various series which I have been reading for years and I have to say it was all worth it/ The invasion series makes all of the other books feel like primers for something larger, as if I was reading for years just for this series. If you are a fan of all things Sci-fi but prefer well written and thought out series and good writing you would be an idiot not to try this!

a good listen

I really enjoyed the book and its take on futuristic combat. I think there is a little bit of everything for everyone. If you're a fan of apocalyptic literature, you will enjoy this tale.

false information

picked up this book form audible. States that it's book 1. In reality book 4 in a series It is book 1 in the next series arch. Would have been nice if there had been something to state that. The story leaves the listener confused by half information from the previous three books. so only reader's of the series would understand the flow of the book.

Quite confusing

I enjoyed the story, although there are so many different races and beings involved that it is hard to work out who is who for much of the novel. A prequel would be worthwhile.

Very weak ending.

Story moves at a slow pace. Author try's to use over the top action to move the story along. Saving my time and avoiding the rest of the series

No

High on monsters and improbable fighting if those, low on plot and tech. Disappointing. The holes in the story is as big as the Grand Canyon. RC Bray awesome as usual.

Ok

It’s ok but the writer throughs in everything. Seems like things were done to stretch into a series. It’s not god enough for that and I won’t get the next one.

Meh

Really struggled to finish. The story was oddly structured and the fragmented telling took away from enjoying it.

Pretty good, saved by Bray

This may be book 1 of the Forgotten Vengeance series, but it does follow after the 3 books of the Forgotten trilogy where you will learn Sherriff Duke's story. Nevertheless, you can pick up here, without having read the first books, and follow along until you put all the pieces together; it does work. There are several aliens who want to completely destroy humans, and some who just want to suck off their lives. Several worthy characters develop here, not just Sherriff Duke. They converge from various areas of the galaxy to save Earth. It does end on a cliff hanger, so we need and can expect a sequel to further the story. RC Bray is his usual perfection here. I just wonder how much it hurts his ears to have to speak grammatical errors. Mr. Forbes, I'd be glad to review your work before you publish to remove the wincing mistakes (I like English to be correct, unless it is dialectical.) So, 4 stars, not 5.
