Creed is the son of MadDog Creed, a famous space shuttle pilot. He’s been through the school of hard knocks to arrive in Antarctica as site security for a research station. That’s where he is when the aliens arrive in orbit and try to extinguish the human race, his dad being the first casualty.
Another set of aliens arrive, start collecting humans and Creed goes berserker on them because to Earthers one alien looks just like another right? Not to put too many spoilers out there this tale turns into an Interstellar translation of Spartacus. The tech is fun, as is the dialog among the humans, aliens and androids. One thing I found to be kind of tiresome was the sheer number of pop culture references that the author threaded into the story.
Creed is an unlikely savior of humanity but he seems to be the only one stepping up to give it a try and that makes the tale. Narration and voice ranges were excellent. Alien and world building was pretty good too. I’m giving the audio version of this four stars out of five. Space Military Opera, post apocalyptic style.
