Description

FROM MILLION-COPY BESTSELLER JASPER T. SCOTT

The Forerunners set out from Earth to colonize neighboring star systems

And to search for intelligent life...

The United Nations of Earth sent out the Forerunner ships to explore and colonize the four most promising star systems within 50 light-years of Earth.

Forerunner One left Earth under the command of Captain Clayton Cross, heading for Trappist-1. After a ninety year journey to reach it, the crew encountered not only a habitable world, but alien life already inhabiting it, and dark secrets lurking beneath the surface.

The revelation of who these aliens are and what they want proves more terrifying than promising, and Captain Cross is forced to make tough decisions that will affect not only his crew, but the fate of the entire human race.

Good Story and Concept; Narrator mispronouncing

I really like the story, especially the first contact and resulting actions.

My only complaint is the constant mispronounced words by the narrator. The worst is "corpsman" or "corpsmen". It should be pronounced similar to Marine Corps (sounds like "core"). The narrator pronounced it as "corpse" (corpse-man or corpse-men). A corpsman is a medic; a corpse is a dead person. I cringed EVERY TIME he said the word. There are others but this particular one was repeated often. To his credit, he did a great job distinguishing the character voices.

BETTER THAN EXPECTED

A good sci-fi story that gets better as the story progresses. Will be purchasing the second book when it becomes available.

smart story for 1920s, not 2020s

The book started out alright, albeit lacking in originality, but soon I realized that the author relied on way too may cliches, the characters made too may assumptions that wouldn't make sense in the real world or even a future technologically advanced world and there were way too many dumb things done by supposedly trained professionals. To me, the writer is imaginative because the story concept is original but he lacks in writing and storytelling skills. On the other hand, I gave the narrator 5 stars because in my opinion he is talented with a good range of voices and I feel he was able to properly portray the characters. However, and I know this may sound nit-picky, but in the first half of the book that I was able to listen to, he mispronounced a couple of words; corpsman as "corpse-man" and wan as "wane". In the end, I didn't return the book because I managed to listen to half of it before I finally gave up on it. Someday if I'm really hard up for something not too deep, I may finish it.

Gripping and unique. Not predictable.

Gripping and unique story. Not predictable or boring like many formulaic stories. Will have to get next book to see what happens.

Awesome story

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. The author did a great job pulling you into the story. The narrator does an awesome job of bringing the characters to life. This story was a fresh take on finding intelligent life and the Joy's and dangers associated with such a discovery. I reccomend this audio book.

Great

This book was a great beginning for a series. The development of the characters was unexpected and added to the mystery of what was going on. I really enjoyed listening to this book.

The narrator did an outstanding job of amplifying the emotions of the characters as well as the multiple voices required for the characters.
