Description

The ships came at dawn. Dean’s wife is dead. Her last words: When the ships come...wear the necklace. Then the ships arrived.  

Cities all around the world reported strange alien vessels descending. Some saw them as the heralds of a new age; others fired everything they had at them. All were taken as the beams lashed down and drew them into the sky.  

Dean was left behind, seemingly the last man on Earth. A trail of clues left by his dead wife guides Dean on a perilous journey across America and beyond to learn the truth behind the mysterious ships and save humanity from its doom.   

But not everything is as it seems.  

The Event is the epic first novel by Nathan Hystad, creator of the best-selling Explorations anthology series.

Worth the purchase

Listened to the first three books and will be grabbing the 4th & 5th as they become available on Audible. Save humanity,save earth,menacing aliens,secrets hidden in antiquity. What will you do? No pressure aye. :)
I found it a fun listen & Luke Daniels is always a good choice for narrator. It looks like this author's 1st series on Audible. I'll be looking for more in the future.

Did not inspire me to get the next book.

The Event – The overall story was good, but moved rather slowly. The characters were not as well developed as I would have liked. Luke Daniels did a great job but had less intensity in this book than he had in others. Unfortunately it did not inspire me to get the next book.

First contact might be the end...

Getting a copy of this book was kinda a no-brainer...
A first-contact story? Ummm... ✔
Whispersynced? Ditto ✔
Narrated by Luke Daniels... Yup! Yet another ✔
So I went ahead and grabbed it...
It turns out that this first alien contact maybe the end for the human race... For some strange reason, Dean wasn't taken by the alien's people-snatching beam! Dean teams up with his neighbors dog, and they find themselves rushing to Machu Picchu try to save the human race... The premise is a bit sketchy but there were enough twists and plot turns to keep me entertained... and I did enjoy the end of the adventure!
Luke Daniels, as per usual, did a great job on narration with this audio tale!

Not bad; not great

The story line was a little bland, and I was kept barely interested. Not terrible, but I won't be continuing the series.

Great read and awesome narration..



I enjoyed this book a lot. It was about an invasion and the few people left on earth to save the billions of people taken by the aliens and put in containers and sent toward the sun so they could have earth.

The characters were great; Dean and Mary, Magnus and Natalia, and Mae near the end of the story, and Carey, Dean’s neighbor’s dog. A neighbor who didn’t make, along with billions of others.

Of course, this book left it open for the next book because Dean told everyone that “it wasn’t over, yet.”

There was no swearing to speak of and no sex so this book was definitely G-rated. And, unfortunately, G-rated books are really not my thing. In real life I’d expect a lot more swearing than “s**t” used two times when people are getting into all kinds of scary-crazy-dangerous-deadly situations. A good read but I won’t be moving on to the next book. This was written for YA and teens.

As to the narration: YAY! Luke Daniels! He’s simply wonderful. With voices and emotions.

A book that pulls you in!

I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this book after reading the reviews. But decided to go for it anyways. And I am glad I did. I love Luke Daniels and as always his performance was exceptional.

I found myself staying up late just to listen to one more chapter, which then lead to another one. I usually don't write reviews, but felt that I should because if you enjoy science fiction...and aliens, then this is the book for you.

Next in the series here I come 😁

Waste of good premise

The premise was ok in the beginning, but then the story got boring and predictable. A Lot of logic/science/reality errors. Characters were without any depth. I will not continue with this series. The performance was good (as expected from Luke Daniels), but it was not enough to save it.

A fun little story

This was a fun story about a boy who meets his future wife, who turns out to be an alien scout for a race of people who want to take over the world. I enjoyed it alot. This book was full of funny ancidotes and even brought me to tears a couple of times. The narrator nails the accents in the book and you have no trouble figuring out who is speaking. All in All a really fun listen.
