Summary

Battle Earth is the first of an epic new science fiction trilogy that tells of humanity's desperate struggle to survive against an overwhelming alien invasion. A distress transmission from Mars research colony warns of an advanced and unknown enemy approaching the heavily populated lunar colony. An elite marine unit commanded by Major Mitch Taylor is dispatched to protect the beleaguered civilians. However, the attack is merely a prelude to a massive invasion of Earth. When the vast enemy mothership smashes through the Earth's atmosphere and deploys in the Atlantic, the armed forces of Earth soon realize they are fighting for the very survival of the human race. As cities fall throughout the world, American and European forces rally together to make a stand as they battle an enemy unlike any they've ever encountered. Battle Earth is a futuristic sci-fi action adventure that chronicles vast bloody battles following humanity's first reach into the stars.

Nice escapism with lots of action

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Perhaps a little more depth to the invading alien force, although with this much action, it's a roller coaster of a read.

If you’ve listened to books by Nick S. Thomas before, how does this one compare?

I liked the book. My first. It was enjoyable from an author with a great deal of promise.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration certainly matched the pace of the story. I think the narrator did a great job with the characters and the story.

Did Battle Earth inspire you to do anything?

I will be getting the next book to see how humanity fares.

Independence Day with ground based warfare

The story was good the characters were well developed. The battle scenes were very well done. A few new twists to an old concept. Enjoyed it and will enjoy the rest of the series. I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review

Classic alien invasion updated for the near future

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would. Overall I did enjoy the book. It was very entertaining. It certainly borrowed from some existing sci-fi and invasion tropes, but overall the author weaves an interesting and engaging tale.

What other book might you compare Battle Earth to and why?

I would say it is closest to the film "Independence Day" but some comparisons can be made to the classic "War of the Worlds."

Which scene was your favorite?

I really enjoyed when the heavy Russian tanks showed up and started really turning the tide of battle.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I thought it would have been a good read for a single sitting. Alas I did not have time for such.
