Publisher's Summary

A thrilling collection of the entire best-selling Orbs series from New York Times best-selling author Nicholas Sansbury Smith.

While training for a manned mission to Mars, Dr. Sophie Winston and her team of scientists find themselves cut off from the rest of the world. Trapped inside a biosphere deep within the confines of Cheyenne Mountain, Sophie and crew discover they are the survivors of a brutal alien invasion. But as they struggle to stay alive, they realize their safe haven is far from safe and that they must team up with other survivors around the world to defeat the aliens before it’s too late for humanity and the Earth.

OK

I finished the first book, but that is as far as I got. It may have been better from there, but I personally did not enjoy the book, as far as science fiction goes, I just couldn't bring myself to believe the events in this story could play out as they did, although some of the concepts were good. I may be a little picky as far as science fiction goes, but this book just was not for me personally.

Different story, but got into it

The story itself is different, and it took a bit to get into it. I think that’s because I wasn’t a big fan of the narration in book 1. But Bronson’s narration got better through each subsequent book. That was probably my biggest hangup. I think I would have enjoyed it more with a different narrator. Not that he’s not good, but just an odd fit and a bit lifeless when things kicked off. Worth a read though (or a listen) if you buy the set as one. It kept me going continuously.

Another way to look at space travel

WOW! I had this series in my wishlist for a few months. .... why did I wait so long to listen? It was awesome! I absolutely love what this author has done for this genre!

Enjoyable bool set.

Well balanced and paced story. I really enjoyed Alexia who half the time sounded like Dr Evil with the characters inflections. Giving me a good laugh. Good balance between good and evil with enough mystery to keep you engaged. Best was the ending didnt feel rushed.

It's okay.

This series began well and it's not bad considering the deal. However, Orbs seems to have lost its oomph about 2/3 of the way through and I found myself just sort of listening during this time. As for Bronson Pinchot, he is great when it comes to voice acting the actual characters but when he is simply narrating the story he is kind of a bore. In any event, if you are looking for a deal on a series that is interesting (for the most part), Orbs is an okay listen.
