Publisher's Summary

Led by former Navy SEAL Victor Seymour, an elite team of mercenaries are sent by the CIA to rescue hostages and secure data from an under-siege top-secret island facility. But upon arrival, they discover ravaged military equipment, a mass grave, and a platoon of hostile forces already in retreat. As the team investigates, they uncover the secret that the island has contained for centuries. 

For the first time, modern man will come face-to-face with a being from beyond the stars. A member of a deadly intergalactic invasive species, the beast is ravenous, cunning, lacking emotion or empathy. With his team dwindling, Seymour must fight to keep the beast from leaving the island, and to save humanity from the terrifying extraterrestrial known as The Pilot.

Excellent first contact story much like Predator but with new twists love that they take the POV of The Pilot too! Going to check out more of Cole’s work! Sequel?

Like a D grade action movie

If you really switch your brain off, you could tolerate the story, but the narration really is the straw that breaks the camels back on this one. I barely made it an hour in before I had to turn it off. The narrators voice doesn’t emote or carry the story well, it’s very painful to listen to.
