Publisher's Summary

An eco-terrorist plot to bring down Earth’s greatest space station.

An impossible murder shrouded in nano technology.

And an extrasolar signal from a sentient species.

From the novelist who brought you Ruins of the Earth and Ruins of the Galaxy, comes this new hard scifi space thriller that fans say is “next in line to The Expanse.”

When famed engineer and test pilot Jericho Fox is sent to investigate an explosion on Astraea Station, he discovers that the emergency is more than a simple system failure. The issues cascade too fast to be accidents, and Fox senses a disaster is imminent.

Meanwhile, decorated astrophysicist Dr. Evelyn Park becomes the lead suspect in the attack. She’s forced to take matters into her own hands and fight to protect what she believes is humanity’s greatest discovery: a potential alien signal from the planet Kepler-1649c. 

Tensions rise as Jericho and Evelyn try to piece together the shocking truth behind Astraea Station's failures. But can they do it before everyone aboard dies?

Loaded with mystery, exploration, and political intrigue, Christopher Hopper’s Oblivion Awaits is what readers are calling "the most anticipated book of the year" and "a gripping non-stop read you won't want to put down." Buy it today!

Available in trade and mass market paperback, hardcover, Kindle eBook, Kindle Unlimited, and Audible audiobook.

This was written for audio

Wow! Listening to this book was immersive instantly. From a story perspective it’s like taking the best of classics from Asimov/Clarke/Weir/Niven and then Hopper layers on his unique and amazing talents to take it beyond. From a storyteller perspective I was dubious about the multi-talent approach vs single reader. But they truly are acting the story out and it’s an unforgettable performance. No spoilers here but it’s absolutely amazing story and performance. Literally dying for next installment.

Intriguing Sci-fi with compelling characters

The audio:
very well narrated. Both the male and female voice actors do a great job distinguishing the different character’s voices. The male narrator reads the chapters whenever it is a male point of view while the female does the same for all female point of views. But it is not exclusive. If the chapter is the female point of view but a male character speaks up, then the male narrator reads that line. And vice versa. This leads to the audiobook feeling practically “full cast.“

The content:
Oblivion Awaits is the start of a new book series (Infinita) that is very realistic sci-fi which takes place on earth as well as nearby space. The book makes you wonder if this really could be a potential future that we might see. The characters are very well written and very “human.” They are heroic and funny as well as have depth and flaws. The story alternates between multiple different character’s points of view but primarily takes place between the main male and female protagonists.

The premise: Some sort of tragedy has struck earth and humanity must figure out how to continue to survive. Of course, people being people means that not everyone agrees on how best to do this. Some want to invest in “fixing“ the earth while others see hope for the future in space exploration and the search for extraterrestrial life. Naturally, this causes conflict between the different factions.

When does the next book release?

Great sci-fi mixed with mystery, political intrigue, mind control and more. Does it sound like too much? It all works together in harmony. Christopher Hopper has built a strong foundation for what appears to be the beginning of a great epic adventure.
The politicasts and organizations are really interesting but it's impossible to choose a favorite because is the charisma of each character.
This isn't a full dramatization, but the two narrators work well together and really enhance the flow of the story.
I'll be reserving a an Audible credit for the next installment.

Outstanding!!!

If you want to read the next best sci-fi opera here it is!
Christopher Hopper takes you on a ride unlike any other you have listened to before. The actors Rebecca Woods and Daniel Wisniewski do a fantastic job bringing these characters to life. This is by far the best book I have listened to this year. This audiobook had me laughing out load one minute and weeping the next, I can’t say enough about this. If you are debating the next book you want to listen to the debate is over buy this one and listen to it. You will thank yourself afterwards. Absolutely Outstanding!!!

Incredible audio performances with a good story

I normally would not begin a review by commenting on the narration but the production is just fantastic. The two main characters male and female rotate point of view each chapter but what makes this great is when any male character speaks its from the male narrator and same for any female characters it is similar to having a full cast but the two narrator's read ALL the characters. It is fantastic and how every dual narrated audiobooks should be. To be honest I normally very much dislike dual narration rotating chapters but the way it's done with this one is done right and can easily spoil me.

The character building is so very good and the story interesting and mysterious. I read just about everything and lately nothing has impressed me as much as this audiobook. If you like fantastic narration with great characters and a good story don't pass on this one download it right now.

A great first book in a new universe!

This book is the great beginning to a new universe created by Christopher Hopper. The various groups were fun to learn about, and the mystery and intrigue were a welcome aspect. I really enjoyed this work and will eagerly, and attempt to patiently, await book 2. The narrator’s did an amazing job bringing all of the different characters to life. I had been reading the kindle version before the audible form came out and when I listened to the audible version, the narrator’s voice of Kit sounded just like it had in my head. I will be listening to this book again, as there are so many layers to digest. Great job Mr. Hopper and thank you for the beginning of a new adventure.

For the void!

What an epic new journey we get to take with this new series by Christopher Hopper. Narration was spot on and kept me intrigued and inthralled. So much life in these characters! As with all of Christopher Hoppers books, the end left me wanting more! Can’t wait to follow this new adventure.

Gripping story

Fabulous storyline and characterization. Can’t wait for the next in the series.
I did have trouble focusing at first because of the two person narration, but the writing is so compelling that jumping back and forth between them was a hurdle I really wanted to jump. Both are great narrators and made their characters come alive, so that helped as well.

How a it should be done.

This is exactly how an audiobook should be done when there are two narrators, especially a male and a female. I was unfamiliar with both of them but happy I gave them a go.

The story is excellent and there is a book 2 that I am eagerly waiting for.
There is a website you can visit, to read more information on the characters, factions and more. There are pictures of the characters and a map you can look at as well. Definitely check that out. Really enjoyed this book give it a go.

The author knocks it out of the park with this book

So just finished oblivion awaits and I must say Christopher Hopper you sir have knocked it out of the park with this book. The world you have built is fascinating in its self, with the politicasts being almost playing as characters in the story, before you bring in the actual main players, who provide a rich tapestry of different personalities and backgrounds, and you mix and weaving their own individual strands together in such an interesting and captivating way, and on top of this then you throw in the thriller elements to the story, so you have the readers ( or listener In my case) drawn into this world and really caring for both the people in it and being concerned as to where the story is going and what will happen next. Bravo to you for writing such a fantastic novel and I cannot wait for the next instalment.. also well done to the narrators who bring the characters to life in the audiobook, they do an outstanding job, and only enhance what is already an extraordinary book. Congratulations to you and to them and the next novel cannot come soon enough.

WOW

A new series ....
A new start ....

I was absolutely enthralled by this story , this is the start of a new series and by the Lord Harry it looks like it's going to be a cracker !!

Great character development and world building - which is always a struggle in a first book of a totally new series - but it in no way detracts from a wonderful plot for the book but also there is just a tantalising glimpse of "plots within plots within plots" - I love a series with a multi layered plot and this has all the makings of a great one !

The voice actors really bring the characters to life and despite there not being "the big beasts" of the voice acting world they deliver a flawless performance breathing an extra dimension into Christopher Hoppers protagonists and antagonists , they are to be commended !

The narrative is well paced and I did not "feel" the books length at all as I was drawn into the mystery and intrigue of the world.

my only criticism is that I only had FIVE stars to give - this book is truly worth all five and more !!

I recommend this book without hesitation !

settle back , relax , grab a mojito and strap in for a wild ride !!!!

Christopher does it again!

Well well, Christopher Hopper does it again... another smash hit from this very talented author. I absolutely loved this book from beginning to end... the story plot, the twists and turns, the build up - all first class writing and storytelling.

Can't wait for Book 2 to see where this is all going to go!!
