Summary

No one ever said surviving an alien invasion would be easy.

Jack Fairbanks made it through the initial wave of attacks, but now the Mawks have seeded the Earth with dozers and crawlers, tracking beasts that crave human flesh and are bent on hunting the remnants of humankind to extinction.

Joined by Lucia, a hardened urban survivor, Jack finds himself caught up in a secret plan to turn the course of the invasion. Can a college sophomore and a ragtag force of soldiers survive when the Mawks descend from orbit and begin their final assault?

"It all reminded me of what life had been like.."

Any additional comments?

First they knocked out our technology, then the aliens arrived. They manipulated the weather and millions drowned, poisoned crops and introduced a virulent flu virus to kill everyone else. This failed: humans were stronger than they thought. But the seeding of the world with man (and dog) eating monsters, the crawlers and the dozers, was far more successful as was the unfortunate predisposition for people to destroy each other in their desperate desire to survive.

Jack is a survivor. And this story is told, in the first person, from his point of view. Jonathan Waters becomes Jack very believably as he recounts the story of how he firstly forms a back watching partnership with Lucia, another formidable loner, then together they become part of an attempt to fight back against the alien invaders who want their home for themselves. Mr.Water's narration is clear, well paced and kept low key even in the midst of fighting. It seems right, somehow, fitting with the character he is portraying. And his voicing of the other characters, and in particular Lucia, is distinctive and appropriate.

There is an underlying feeling of loss and sorrow to this book so often not present in other survival stories. Although the fight scenes, and there are many, are vivid and very well written, it is this sense of the bleakness of what is left that I personally found most harrowing. My thanks to the rights holder of Thunder Wells for freely gifting me a copy, via Audiobook Boom. It was an enjoyable and worthwhile book which I can happily recommend to any reader with an enjoyment of science fiction, adventure or post apocalyptic stories with a human touch.

Interesting Tale

Although a little dry i found this story very enjoyable.
The characters and action are very realistic to what you wouke expect in an invasion and we feel very quickly for the way of life and the choices forced upon the world because of it.
The slog through the desolate USA and the mentioned events remind me very much of that of the 2nd Mass Militia and their fight to stay alive and on mission from the popular TV series Falling Skies.
Narration was good but could maybe have served better if a little less gruff and dry, maybe the fault of the writing?.
Saying this I'd still give both the author and the narrator a try in future endeavours.
This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review and as such is my own opinion.

Thunder wells

I liked everything about the book up until Jack and Lucia join the army where there seemed to be a nonstop onslaught of military action, which didn't keep my interest. In truth I would have preferred an alien invasion survival story about Jack, his old mentor and Lucia because I enjoyed the survival aspect more than the military tactics, which take up a large portion of the book. Also although the narration was good J.W's voice tended to crack a lot.

I was given this book for free of my own choosing and I voluntarily left this review.
