Publisher's Summary

**Humanity's Existence Hangs In the Balance**

Aliens have invaded the planet Intrepid. The vicious rat-faced bastards will stop at nothing until all humanity is either dead or enslaved. The only thing that can save the people of Intrepid are the Imperial Marines. The only thing that can save the galaxy itself, is the Imperial Navy. Never before in human history has so much depended upon so few.

Admiral McKenzie is very aware that the continuation of the human race rests on his shoulders. Through grit, determination, skill, and deception he will use whatever or whoever he must to win. His fleet of starships and their crews are the best ever. But will they be enough to defeat this new threat.

Sergeant Dex Carter finds himself and a few fellow Marines behind enemy lines. He is tasked with holding the small village of Drake’s Rift, the key crossroads that might very well determine the outcome of the war.

Alicia Miller wanted adventure, but having aliens invade her home was not on her list. She and the people of Drake's Rift neve expected to become the center of an inter-galactic war. While providence may have thrust her into this role. Toughness and determination will see her through it.

A good feel good sci-fi story about aliens

I enjoyed this book, a little humor and a lot of detail. Safe for work and younger teens. The narrator is very good

its a fanciful book

In the event that you love space drama, at that point this current book's for you. In the event that you likewise love romance books, you'll like it surprisingly better. Helped me a piece to remember "Skylark of Space" (which reveals to you my age), or an increasingly sensible rendition of "Streak Gordon." Personally, I'd similarly as before long lose the sentiments, since I think they bring down the remainder of the story.

None stop action !!!

Unbelievable Tension !!

This Author Nate Johnson is amazingly without any problem so it seems know exactly how to get you into his simple to understand writing build tension keep it growing and growing to the point that even if you needed to there is no way to stop listening till the ending wishing for more.
Truly an amazing writing of complex war but everything easily understood.
And Narration by Conner Goff wraps the whole deal into a perfect audio packaging !!!
Moving to book 2 of the series.

But as of now there is no doubt of recommending this action filled series for all !

Ostfeld Oded.

A straight forward story

I found the plot simple and straight forward. It reminded of Rourkes Drift. The story is character led and winds you into their current predicaments. There no complex science to worry about which makes a change. It’s a good old fashion Aliens versus humans.
If you want a light read then I recommend Drake’s Rift. You won’t be disappointed.

Fighting down to the wire

I really liked this gripping tale of holding the line against all odds.

I'd like to see more of what drives these aliens to behave the way they do.
