Publisher's Summary

They were heading for Venus. Somewhere else found them first....
When a sudden impact sends a spacecraft bound for a distant research station hurtling toward a previously unseen and inexplicable planet, responsibility for the safety of its passengers immediately falls on Ivy 'Holly' Wood, a former poster child of the public space program now fleeing Earth's tyrannical leadership.
The mysterious planet's startlingly Earth-like atmosphere initially breeds optimism among Holly's group of stranded survivors, but before long it becomes clear that Earth's rules don't apply and that nothing can be taken for granted.
With all hopes of escape dependent on discovering the true nature of this increasingly hostile planet, Holly and the rest of the desperate survivors know only one thing for sure: Their newly discovered world will not give up its secrets without a fight.
Terradox is a sci-fi thriller/adventure novel from the author of the breakout best seller Not Alone, an Audible.com 'Best of 2016' finalist.

The Falconer has landed!

This is a great listen - an exciting and well-thought out science-fi thriller/whodunnit/adventure, with enough twists to it to maintain your interest.

The story follows Holly Wood and the other occupants of a spaceship that inexplicably crashes into a planet that no-one can see, and absolutely cannot exist. How is it there? How will they survive? Can they every get home?
The planet is dangerous, and they need to try and find a way of getting to safety. Then they discover that this already weird story isn't the half of it. So it turns from fun sci-fi to a thriller/whodunnit.

It got off to a slightly slow start (it seemed to have a lot of scene to set, which took some time), but once it picked up it rollicked along and was a thoroughly enjoyable adventure. The narration was largely good, although the English accents were a little wide of the mark which I found distracting during the slower parts of the story. Honestly, if the narrator can't do the accent wouldn't it be better not to try and just to use their own voice? Or maybe writers should consider making their characters from more obscure places - if they'd been Norwegians who grew up in Kenya, I'm pretty sure it would have seemed spot-on to my ear.

But, the main point is this is a great book, well worth the listen.

If Siri narrated audio books

the story is fine. not as good as "Not Alone" but a good solid story. unfortunately Dina Pearlmans narration is nothing short of robotic. the recording seems to have a Strange Echo that makes it sound like it was recorded while she was sitting on the toilet, and is very off putting. her attempts at a British accent make Dick van dyke sound good. I only put up with it as the book is only 11 hours long. much longer i would have had to tap out. she sounds like Mrs Stephen Hawkings.
