Summary

FROM MILLION-COPY BESTSELLER JASPER T. SCOTT

2069: EARTH IS DYING, AND SOCIETY IS ON THE BRINK OF COLLAPSE

We are out of time to save the planet. All that’s left is to watch the world burn, but the apocalypse is about to take an unexpected twist.

Alice Rice has discovered the impossible: a potentially habitable world in close proximity to Earth. The media is calling it Planet B.

PEOPLE ARE DISAPPEARING

Detective Layla Bester was about to marry the love of her life when she learned that he slept with her best friend. Now, she’s alone and starting over in the once great city of New York. But the world has more than enough troubles to make hers feel small, and a new one has just been added: People are vanishing, and no one knows where they’re being taken.

AND A WAR IS BREWING

Meanwhile, Billionaire Preston Baylor is leading the race to reach Planet B, but competing space programs are heating up political tensions and driving superpowers ever closer to war.

Climatologist Bruce Gordon believes an incomprehensibly powerful species sent Planet B to us, but who are our mysterious saviors, why are they hiding, and what do they want? As time goes by, it becomes clear that even if their intentions were good, our own self-destructive natures could be all it takes to wipe us out.

Planet B is an apocalyptic thriller by million-copy bestseller, Jasper T. Scott. If you liked Under the Dome by Stephen King, or Maze Runner by James Dashner, then this book is for you.

Great story telling as usual 😊

The introduction to the characters are swift and interesting which is always a great start to a book. The appearance of a new 'class M' (star trek) planet close to Earth brings the story to it's start only people begin to disappear shortly after. Add some dinosaur's YES DINOSAURS! You've now made my day and I'm flying through this book.

Set about 40 years from now and we've still not done nothing about the state we are making of this sphere we live on this is possibly the answer to the mess?

So another nod towards Star Trek in going to say this is a cross between 'The Menagerie' and I'll throw in the story about The Ark.
The trouble with putting mixes of dino's, extinct animals and ancient humans is conflict. It's all here and it's a great ride there are more twists and turns towards the end. I'm wishing for book 2 & 3 immediately!! Oh the water yes the water 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Thanks to Jasper for sending me a free code. I absolutely love his stuff so was very excited to get into this and as luck would have it I had plenty of time this weekend

Very original and very entertaining

I enjoyed listening to this book and wasn't swayed by no reviews being posted. I like James Patrick Cronin narration and have read Jasper T. Scott stories before This story was original and I enjoyed the characters. I didn't feel as though the story was predictable and liked all the different directions it went. I do have to give James Patric Cronin a 4.5 on narration this time because i felt some of the times that when a situation needed more emotion, he fell flat. It changed my enjoyment of the story just a bit. Can't wait for the next one.

Bad, Really bad.

there are so many scientific and biological holes in this story it's not even funny. a T-Rex cannot get its hands anywhere near its header its face. that's just one of the most glaring errors. poorly written, poorly crafted, not a very good performance, a real disappointment.

Interesting tale

Cliffhanger and no book two.
A lot of fantasy environments.
I thought the characters seemed much younger than they were. Not a lot of maturity or thought, just liked breaking rules and being spontaneous.
It seemed rather unique however so I gave it four stars.

Ug

Although the story had promise at first, it fell into long boring stretches of battles between them and others. I love this reader, he was the only reason I finished it.

Listened to it twice. I want a sequel!

This is a story of adventure on an alternate planet. There's a variety of interesting characters that pull the story one way, then another. Their different agendas and priorities make you pull for the good guys and make you wish you can help them. These people have to team up to survive even if they hate each other.

This book is a welcome break from the usual sci-fi I listen to that is loaded with space battles between fleets of ships. It has very interesting descriptions of their new home and plenty of enemies. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Awesome

Found this on a whim! Definitely a mind bender and a story I have not heard before. The characters are all intriguing and have decent back stories.

I enjoyed listening while exercising on the thread mill. The exercise time passes much faster. I can stay on the mill longer.

Planet B Rocks!

I was given a copy of the book Planet B to listen to and review, but I would have happily paid for it. The story is original and vastly entertaining. It is a thrill ride full of non-stop action with ~Spoiler Alert~ dinosaurs, wormholes spaceships, and living water! The cast of characters is interesting and quite diverse, with Axel being quite mysterious. Once I started the book, I could not stop as I had to know what happened next--and I was always surprised. Now I will have to wait for the next book in the series, The narration by James Patrick Cronin was good, but I had a bit of difficulty distinguishing one character from another so the performance was only awarded four stars; however, since the story was so good I gave an overall score of five stars. This is great science fiction. Planet B by Jasper T. Scott is a MUST read/listen!

Yet another great book by Jasper T. Scott

Planet B is yet another great book by Jasper T. Scott. This book contains engaging characters who experience multiple mysteries and revelations. Partially a dystopian novel, we find an Earth wracked by ecological disaster. A planet appears (the titular "Planet B") that holds promise as humanity's refuge from a dying world. How Earth's inhabitants get to Planet B is twofold. What they find defies elaboration without spoilers. The resolution is eminently satisfying. I look forward to the next book in this series.
