Winner, 2017 APA Audie Awards - Excellence in Marketing Earphones Award Winner Best of 2016 Science Fiction Audiobook In the year AD 3000, Earth is a barren wasteland, plundered of its natural resources by the millennium-long regime of taloned, gas-breathing, nine-foot alien conquerors from the planet Psychlo. Fewer than 35,000 humans survive in a handful of communities scattered across the face of a postapocalyptic Earth. From a desolate village in the Rocky Mountains near what once was Denver, Colorado, a courageous young man named Jonnie Goodboy Tyler embarks on a hero's journey to challenge the fearful myths of his people. Enslaved by the sadistic Terl, the Psychlo security chief of Earth, Jonnie and a small band of survivors pit their quest for freedom against Terl's ruthless ambition for personal wealth and power in a rebellion that erupts across the continents of Earth and the cosmic sprawl of the Psychlo empire, with the fate of the world, of mankind, and of the galaxies beyond in the balance.

Best Audio Book Ever!!!
I've already listened to the first chapter of this audio book and it is a total blow away! I'm really into audio books and have been waiting for someone to breakthrough with a whole new standard in the industry and this is it!!! Wow! And to do this on one of the most epic sifi books of all time makes it even better! Battlefield is arguably the best sifi book of all time for me. So to have this book with this quality of presentation makes this story come to life in so many ways I never knew it would!
It is the best book and now the best audiobook
It is amazing how much production went into making this audiobook. Haven't heard anything similar ever. I haven't been able to put it down and I feel like I am listening a full movie!!! Regarding the book it is simply the best: strategies, fights, politics, suspense!! I simply love it. Have read it 6 times already and now listening for the 7th time!
Bringing life to a true classic
This has always been one of my favorite books and now it's my favorite audiobook. The sound effects and voice over acting is brilliant! It's like Star Wars and Indiana Jones rolled into one!
