Publisher's Summary

The only favor the aliens do for Clint Beecham when they abduct him is give him a shirt that says "Do Not Eat" on it in their language. He’s told that as a physicist, he is to be reserved, along with five other scientists, for a mysterious purpose. 

But 50,000 other humans on board the interstellar scout ship are scheduled to be butchered and frozen, a food supply for the long journey to the alien homeworld. Clint and the other Reserves can’t stand by and let that happen.

Ayesha is a biologist and Deepali a geologist; Oscar is a meteorologist and Gregory specializes in robotics; Hanh is a researcher in marine biology. Together, they’re humanity’s last unlikely hope. Because if they don’t find a way to stop the ravenous aliens from reporting that they’ve found a planet full of delicious creatures to eat, the 50,000 humans on board will only be the first of billions: the entire Earth will become an all-you-can-eat buffet.

short and to the point

fun ... a little preachy ... still, I wanted more. A great Twilight Zone story ... or a Netflix one-off movie ... I'd watch either. worth the time ... think I'll listen to it again, now...

Love this team!

Big fan of the Hearne/Daniels combination anyway, and this story holds the line. Lots of Kevin's usually silliness and welcoming inclusion makes his first scifi tale a winner!

Fun book, fantastic performance

I'm sure I would have enjoyed this book if reading it, but the narrator made it exponentially better. It's a great book and I love Kevin Hearne's writing but it would not have been as funny all in my own voice.

Luke Daniels did a fantastic job bringing all the characters to life and his inflections changed the meaning (for the better) from the way I would have interpreted sentences if just reading.

My only regret is that the book wasn't longer.

Such a fun book! It was a nice little break from reality and definitely a good little first sci-fi.

Hilarious and awkward

as a fan of Kevin hearn and Luke Daniels I wasn't sure exactly what to expect with this book because it's not his usual genre. But as always it was good! I liked it. It's a short book so a quick listen. I recommend it!

This book

I could not finish this book it was so bad ( how bad was it .) I have listened to most of Kevin’s books this one i didn’t like, I could not get in to it. Maybe it’s just me, is it worth a shot?

Kevin Hearne channels Douglas Adams

Finished in one afternoon. Alien abduction at the funniest. Luke Daniel's narration made it even more fun. Only criticism I have: it's too short.
