Publisher's Summary

It’s our planet. But it’s their war....  

On New Year's eve 2022, unknown flying objects appear over Europe and ignite an inferno of violence among themselves. Debris from one of the spacecraft falls on Athens, turning the city center into a smoking crater.  

The destroyed remnant of the former metropolis is declared a restricted zone by NATO forces and sealed off. Amid the few survivors struggling for food, medicine, and clean water, Nikos takes care of his girlfriend, Maria, only to soon find out that to avert a creeping death, there is only one way out of the hell of Athens—the wreckage of the alien ship.  

At the same time, a special forces team is sent on an impossible mission, as NATO's European Command has evidence that another spaceship has landed in the jungles of Africa and that its alien crew appears to still be alive....  

Don't miss best seller Joshua T. Calvert's next science-fiction epic. A story of survival, invasion, and war that's perfect for fans of Jay Allan, Joshua Dalzelle, and S.M. Anderson.

monotone narrator

I cannot even get into the beginning 5:00 or 6:00 chapters the monotone of the narrator just threw everything off I could not follow

Great story. Fantastic narrator.

I love the storyline. The plot of the first half was great. The plot of the second half was very well done. The storyline moved and didn't slow down due to lengthy descriptions or backstop. Narrator just could not have been better. I think he was perfect for this story. Fantastic.

Started slow. Good finish

Started Arrival because Kafer was narrating. The book starts slow. Once it got going I could not stop listening.
