Summary

When a mysterious invisible barrier appears on a Montana ranch, no one knows what to think of it.

Drake, a retired police detective, receives a call in the dead of night from an alien-obsessed podcaster. He hastily departs for Montana the following morning.

The phenomenon continues all over the globe. What are they? What do they mean?

Britt is on assignment for a digital magazine when she encounters one of the Glass in a tragic boating accident, leaving her no choice but to follow the lead. Panic ensues as mysterious creatures are sighted.

Will has never left the relative safety of his small town, having begun to accept a life he doesn’t want. Now he must venture into the unknown with the girl of his dreams.

The Glass seem innocuous, until they start to glow…

Ransom, a washed-up Broadway actor and single father, tends bar in the Upper West Side. His daughter shares his knack for knowing things, and they head west as their intuition guides them to the source.

Together they must discover the truth behind the Glass, or risk losing their world forever.

The Other Place is an epic post-apocalyptic science fiction tale from the best-selling author of Lost Contact and First Life, brought to you in audio format by award-winning narrator R.C. Bray.

Great Listen

I love Nathan's writing and this story is full of detailed characters and a page turning (ear turning ???) storyline.

RC Bray narrates it extremely well providing depth to these characters.

Highly recommend!

Such a great book!

Had me hanging on to find out what was going to happen. Great characters, detailed but not to much.
Small snippets of information to work with without giving anything away and yet another knock out from R C Bray!

erm...Gerrard is a knob...

not feeling that name at all...maybe it's a personal dig at a previous review...
However it's a fantastic book with a trio of adventures brought together with masterful writing...
I highly recommend CAST UNDER AN ALIEN SUN by OLAN THORENSEN...

Quite the adventure

I don’t think this book has any swearing in, which is unusual for science fiction with quite a lot of horror. But it worked. No need for the swearing. I wasn’t quite sure if this book was great, it was good enough as an adventure, just a bit all over the place. I guess that means it’s got twists and turns, but really it’s confusing. And annoying with there being so many unanswered questions that are blatantly ignored. I’m not sure about the prophetic dreams either. It’s like throwing a tarot card reader into an alien science fiction story, it just doesn’t work for me. I think I’ll just treat this as one adventure without going onto the next in the series. This one had a tidy enough ending. That’s good at least.

An excellent adventure performed by R. C. Bray

Author Nathan Hystad has written another creepy adventure. There are parts that remind me of The Stand, only because people meet up with other people with a similar destination. Don't let that confuse you, it's nothing like The Stand.
As with other writings by this author, he will keep you reading. If you enjoy Audible books, The Other Place is performed by the great R. C. Bray.

Great story; Excellent narration

I didn’t have a credit to spare or i would have pre-ordered book 2 in the seri. Loved this book. It takes it a little while to get going as all the main characters are introduced, but then the pace quickens. Strong storyline that wraps up very satisfactorily while opening a door to book 2. Narration is top-notch. RC Bray is one of the best, especially when it comes to sci-fi. He has a gift.

Underdeveloped characters, superficial plot

I'm at a loss as to why so many people gave this book such a high rating. The only thing I can figure is that many people quit reading/listening, never finished the book, and thus didn't rate it. The story is not a bad one, but it is so superficial, across all aspects of the book and plot that I lost interest by the time I was halfway through.
