Summary

The first book in the epic saga of humankind's war of transcendence
There is a milestone in the evolution of every sentient race, a Tech Singularity Event, when the species achieves transcendence through its technological advances. Now the creatures known as humans are near this momentous turning point.
But an armed threat is approaching from deepest space, determined to prevent humankind from crossing over that boundary - by total annihilation if necessary. To the Sh'daar, the driving technologies of transcendent change are anathema and must be obliterated from the universe - along with those who would employ them. As their great warships destroy everything in their path en route to the Sol system, the human Confederation government falls into dangerous disarray.There is but one hope, and it rests with a rogue Navy Admiral, commander of the kilometer-long star carrier America, as he leads his courageous fighters deep into enemy space towards humankind's greatest conflict - and quite possibly its last.

A Good Listen

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

Yes and the storey line was OK but once I got into it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Earth Strike?

After the battle with the Sh'daar and lLieutenant Grays great discovery by shooting his
Anti- ship Missile Sand Caster rockets at the speed of light at the oncoming fleet.

Have you listened to any of Nick Sullivan’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Nick Sullivan makes this storey come to life, I do not think anyone else could have pulled it off, I look for books that Nick is narrating because he only does good stories and I have listed to other books by other Authors and it puts me off them when the narration is poor!!

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Time is Running Out for Man

Any additional comments?

Please keep the Storyline going, don't take to long before getting the follow on books into audible.

Absolute rubbish

A sci fi book with no ideas, characters or coherent story line. A twelve year old child could have come up with something more interesting
