Publisher's Summary

After 120 years comes a thrilling sequel to The War of the Worlds. This sci-fi audiobook captures the imagination and features original music and action!
The terror of the coming of the Martians has become a distant memory, a bad dream that has faded with time. It is now 1913, and the cozy, suburban life of the writer from H. G. Wells' iconic The War of the Worlds descends again into a Martian nightmare. A cylinder from the previous invasion has been unearthed in Wales, intact and completely sealed from the Earth's atmosphere, then transported to London for no apparent reason. It is unclear whether there are Martians still alive inside it after more than a decade.
The situation worsens. Ogilvy, the astronomer, reveals that in three months, the Martians are set to invade in vast numbers, just before Christmas. Having learned hard lessons about deadly bacteria, the Martians are set on the conquest of our planet.
On a hunch, the writer takes his wife with him to Mount Tryfan in Wales where they make a surprising discovery, but is it significant? With no realistic defense against Martian tripods and heat rays, the government has no choice and adopts the writer's plan. But time is short, too short. Only a single hope now stands in the way of the Martian onslaught and The Day of the Martians....

Very Enjoyable

Really enjoyed the music, and the narrators made the characters seem very lifelike. I'm not familiar with the War of the Worlds, but enjoyed Day of the Martians as a standalone audiobook. Looking forward to the next one!
