Publisher's Summary

Human life has just become the rarest resource of them all.

Clayton Cross has been reunited with his family, and he’s joined forces with the remnants of Phoenix, a human resistance group from the Wastes outside of New Houston. But following a traitorous double-cross by their Chrona ally, Specter, most of the world’s remaining population has turned into the failed human-alien hybrids known as Dregs. The world is no longer divided into safe, civilized cities run by the Kyra, and even they have abandoned Earth, declaring it a quarantine zone to contain a deadly new version of their virus, engineered by the Chrona.

Earth is overrun with alien predators.

Few human survivors remain, and now monstrous hordes of Dregs stalk the cities and Wastes alike, making life on Earth more treacherous than ever.

The survivors are left to fight over dwindling resources.

People must find refuge before they are hunted to death, but they are competing with rival groups for vital resources and shelter - and some of them are better equipped than others.

Clayton and the rest of Phoenix are faced with hard choices in this Fractured Earth as new and old enemies pursue them. When the choice is kill or be killed, death is the only way out.

Fractured Earth is a post-apocalyptic story about survival, family, and the resilience of the human spirit. If you like gritty post-apocalyptic stories that give you chills yet still end on a positive note, then this book is for you.

Great series..

Fighting the Kyra and Chimera and the Dregs made this a good series. I love Michael Anderle's sci-fi and paranormal books.

No romance and the F-bomb was used 12 times.

As for the narration: Ben Jaeger-Thomas was fabulous!

Exciting

Another great story in the ascension wars. The author does a great job painting the conflict between the humans, Kimara and Krona. The resistance has seized their chance at victory, only there is an unforeseen twist that puts them in a precarious situation. Now they must solve yet another problem in order to survive. The story keeps you listening till you finish. The narrator does an excellent job bringing the character and the world to life. Highly recommend.

Excellent Story Building and Growth

Jasper T Scott is doing a marvelous job bring this series to even greater life and growth.

The truly evil species has lost the revolution and been driven away, yet the evils that plague us today ate now the new demons

I can't wait for the next book to see how we work these challenges out to have a peaceful coexistence.

Narrator Ben Jaegger-Harris is really an excellent narrator! As he has gone ob and read the series, he has really nailed the characters' personalities, subtilties, and quirks. He is really rising in my estimations.

I have to stop listening, it's not good. Bi-Polar

I recall liking the first book. Space explorer etc.
The 2nd book absolutely stops existing in the same universe, seriously the space explorer theme undergoes a 100% conversion to being C-rate walking dead fan fiction. I wanted to see where it went so I also started the 3rd book. Big mistake.
It's like the author binge watched every season of walking dead and crammed it into the Space Sci-fi that doesn't quite remember to go to space. Nearly every character comes off as an unmedicated severe bipolar.
Whiny 10yr old kid is able to physically overwhelm a mutated alien chimera in full power armor... While at the same time the aliens are grabbing people and tearing then apart bare handed.
Hiding on the ground, maximum travel speed is 100mph... hunted by an armada of space ships that fly between stars in hours and they can't just look down and see you... hmm.
The characters never develop just pop off canned catch phrases or overused stereotypes. I can see where the author wanted the characters to arrive but he skipped all the steps of development in between. They just blip over like a bipolar personality shift.
One main character can read minds but is constantly surprised by other characters as if the author forgets for long stretches that this character can read thoughts. Then the character is in a huge crowd and can chase down one person by reading their thoughts from far away. Then the character is surprised by an ambush..
This series beyond the first book has virtually nothing to offer a serious fan of reading. Is it a space opera? is it walking dead fiction? is it fallout fiction? is it disgruntled garbage truck driver fiction?

Main guy is a Captain of one of the first United Nations interstellar warships and colony ship.
But at every turn he is distracted, foolish, disorganized and emotionally disrupted. He would struggle to captain the Exxon Valdez.. Yet I'm supposed to think he's the hero captain. The author isn't trying at all sadly. Book is a series of fan fiction concepts stolen from pop culture married to convenient occurrences and contrived results that just pop into being to justify the we story.

I hate to leave bad reviews but I don't want anyone else to waste a $13 Audible credit on this nonsense.
I feel like the author owes a written apology to everyone that paid for this book.

An equal sequel

A pretty by the numbers story on par with the others in the series. a few surprises but for the most part it was in line with the prior two. There were miraculous last minute coincidences that were a little too convenient that saved the main characters, several times, but overall it was a good book. There some scenes that were difficult to hear, like a women urging and aiding her male party members to rape a female captive but thankfully the act itself was not consummated.

Well written and delivered, but kind of meh

All the way through I found myself enjoying this, right up until the end where I started thinking about it more.
This entire book spans just over a day, which is hard to keep in mind throughout it. But it does explain why so little happens in it.
By the end, it suddenly dawns on you that from a narrative perspective almost nothing important to the plot has happened, and the cast is saved by a miracle of sorts at the end which really just felt shunted in.

I felt like this should have been the book to help explain the Chimera way of thinking. There were multiple excellent opportunities, but that still didn't happen.
There were multiple Chimera whose introduction was ripe for exploration so that they could be more than blank enemies or random sympathisers.
The sympathetic contrasted the callous just on the surface because if you wanted to look deeper about why some were hateful and callous to Humans and others were sympathetic, you wouldn't get anywhere.

And story by story, Clayton is feeling less and less like the Clayton introduced at the beginning, and it's not really explained why.
He's feeling increasingly generic and I'm having increasing difficulty in empathising with his perspective.

I do hope that the one single point set up in this story is expanded well in the next and final book so that I don't end up feeling like the original narrative set up was a waste of time.
