Publisher's Summary

The invasion left him without hope. But no one was prepared for the war he would learn to wage.

Ben Hutchins buried his anger to survive. Stranded on a ravaged Earth after a devastating alien annihilation, the haunted young man has nothing except his late father’s cutting-edge exo-suit and a veteran soldier for company. But when he uncovers the truth about his armored prototype, he unwittingly paints a target on his back for those who seek humanity’s destruction.

Forced to flee the attacks, Ben can feel the rage and resentment building as he discovers he might be humanity’s only weapon against utter extinction. But with his abilities fueled by fury, saving the human race may mean becoming a monster.

Can Ben save his people without losing his soul? The Terran Menace is the action-packed first book in the Terran Menace military science fiction series. If you like jaw-dropping reveals, gripping action scenes, and learning the cost of war, then you’ll love J. R. Robertson’s military sci-fi epic.

Surprisingly engaging

Honestly, it’s not that common that I find a random sci-fi book or author I’ve never heard of before that good. This, however… the characters are well-developed, the interaction between them is entertaining and believable, and the action is well-considered and communicated. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to the next book. Thank you, Mr. Robertson.

Good, but not my favorite..

It was good. I did find myself wishing things happened a bit more quickly..

Kind of wished it had gotten a bit more detailed on certain things, and got us a bit more attached to some of the characters.

It was an above average book, and I plan to continue reading the series.

A good book but will be my last.

Thus was a wonderful book. Now that Audible is changing their payment options they no longer will be accepting debt cards or credit cards to purchase these wonderful books. so I say good bye Audible.

Gripping, thrilling story with slowly revealing li

My first book by J R Robertson, I think he'll go on to become one of my favourite authors. The Terran Menace, is one of those gripping stories you can't put down and are desperate to find out what will happen next. Paul Heitsch does an amazing job on narration, the reason I picked up the book in the first place was because I knew he'd do a great job bringing it to life.

Looking forward to more Mr Robertson!

Fantastic book; good story and good narration.

I am really looking forward to the next installment of this series. I strongly suspect that this series will be up there amongst the greats.
