Summary

Complete new version. Newly narrated in June 2018. 
"This is not your usual alien vs humanity novel" 
You have to feel sorry for an alien who wakes up on Earth after hibernating for millennia only to find his own race gone - destroyed centuries earlier by a ruthless hive of artificial intelligence. All that remains are humans, who have yet to evolve sufficiently to bypass their own shortcomings and unify as a race to work toward a common goal. 
The alien, Zirkos, chooses to befriend a US Vet named Zeke Callaghan who possesses a rare component he needs to complete his spaceship's revival - an exotic meteor fragment currently buried in Zeke's head. A bond is forged between the two bringing with it remarkable technological advances in personal safety and an end to humanity's incessant demand for war. The breakthrough ultimately proves a catalyst to launch humanity into space. 
From there events quickly take on a life of their own as the duo battle to bring Earth to a state of readiness to defend them from the approaching threat of 'The Nubl'.

Sorry, Really bad regional accent ruins it

The write up made this an audio book to try so I did so. Really bad regional accent does this story no justice.
The writing leaves something to be desired even though I only got 10 minutes in before I had to stop listening, I could not continue listening to the voice.

Probably a good story on Kindle which I also got so might try reading instead.

This is an optimistic look at the future, but ...

bad things are coming.

It is the first book in the series. Without the series finished, it can be frustrating to read the book and then have to wait "who knows how long?" for the series to be finished. The characters and the created near-term earth world were well done.

I guess I will have to wait for the next book in the series.

Enjoyable Listen and Read

Enjoyed the book a lot. The author does a great job showing how and alien machine and AI might work. He creates a great alliance between man and machine. Thought the voice acting on this one was great. Very enjoyable.
