Summary

They came in peace. But that was last time…

As the world gears up for the first anniversary of Contact Day, Dan McCarthy’s year-long effort to stay out of the limelight collapses in an instant.

A direct call from the Messengers throws Dan into urgent action, but the fallout plants a troubling seed of doubt:

This time, maybe they didn’t come here to help....

finishing on a low note

from the highs and the k
lows throughout the trilogy, I found this one to be the most tamest of books. it rises and you think,

" heck there going to be 6 more story books"

but alas! no. everything tidies very neatly and easily. stupidly so in my opinion.

Excellent trilogy

The “south” Sheffield/mockney accent aside, this was a very enjoyable listen. All three books have been very well narrated, and the story has been great.

Whilst I am sad it’s over, it probably is best left as a trilogy.

Repetitive in parts.

I really wish Falconer would stop repeating things that have just happened. I'm perfectly capable of remembering something from two chapters before, and certainly don't need huge explanations of why a character is doing something when it's blatantly obvious why the character would be doing something. The thing is, I like the plots and the storyline...I like what happens....I just don't need to be told what is happening again and again in recaps.

A fine ending.

All three books have kept me engrossed from begining to end.

Great characterisation by the narrator.

good story

Good story and narrator, with plenty going on to keep the plot moving, but worse "Sheffield" accent ever!

Good story - disappointing writing

A really gripping story - so much so that I am continuing to listen despite the writing which is either sloppy or just poor. "Even more welcomely"? "Devious deceit"? Really?

Back on form

First book was great, second one was less exciting, the third book is great.

Flows very well start to finish, although it might not make best use of the drama, i really liked this.

I think this come from both the writer and the reader, some of the writing can feel a little robotic, especially the first couple of chapters but it does smoothen out. Whatever flaws the writing and ready has, if find it is counteracted by the great dialogue and the narrator giving each character a very distinct voice.

Will definitely follow this story to the end.

Was it needed

I really thought I liked this series, and thoroughly enjoyed the second more than the first. Both books 1 & 2 had action, mystery, suspense and conspiracy, and I also thought that Dan and Emma wrapped everything up nicely... It never crossed my mind that their would be another book.
So after all of the action and intrigue the first 2 books gave us, I was confused by this book and it's climax, which was something akin to giving a quote for a greenhouse.
Not sure if I'll carry on.
P.S,..Cole had the worst accent I've ever heard.

Enjoyable

I listened to all three of the Not Alone series and I really enjoyed them. This was great to listen to as I worked, easy and quick with plenty of twists and turns.

A Wonderful Book and a Perfect Ending

This book is absolutely amazing and a perfect ending one of my favorite trilogy I’ve ever listened to. Do not hesitate to pick this book up. I honestly cannot even put into words how much I loved this book and the series as a whole.

10/10

Steady decline

The first book was great, the second okay, but this was a fairytale. it was acceptable, but a bit contrived. It was a chance to see characters that we liked, play together again, but the story just couldn't compete with the original. It devolved into a chance for characters to play the same roles they always pla, and after all is said and done, they all lived happily ever after. Please don't let there be a fourth book!

EXCELLENT!! More please!

Omg I'm sorry it's over. I fell in love with the characters and the story, and the narrator's voices were great. I've had a problem being able to listen to a lot of absolutely terrible narrators whose voices and delivery just ruin the audiobooks. Not this one. I love sci fi and aliens, and this satisfied that need.
Great story telling. I'd be very happy with more about the Reconstruction on the alien planet and interactions with our characters. Never got the names of the two Messengers.
Oh, and Timo's accent was back! Lol!

Nice close to a long trilogy

I'm glad this installment really made the first two reads worth it. It's positive, fun, simple, and worth the time. The first two books were just way too long for me for what they offered, but the good parts still made the books worth it. Here we have a premise that has potential to really grow into something. Fortunately there is a fourth book which I now look forward to reading next.

Brilliant trilogy!

Loved it! All 3 books kept me wanting more. The narration was pretty much perfect.
