Audiobook: Intruders: The Invasion by Tracy Sharp (Read by Heather Ross)

Intruders: The Invasion

We are not alone on earth.  Not even close.  We have been invaded.

4 out of 5 stars

Intruders: The Invasion takes place in a world that is under attack.  Meteors are crashing into buildings and the meteor dust may be causing people who died to get up and walk the earth looking for their next meal.  Enter Zoe, a 17-year-old unlikely protagonist. Barely 100 pounds and scared to death.  She is forced to face some of her biggest fears and she starts to realize what is going on in the world.  Kids are disappearing and returning… but different.  Then zombies attack, then other things attack.  In this fast-paced novel from the viewpoint of a 17-year-old girl, you will be left feeling powerful and helpless depending on the scene.

The audio quality of this audiobook was excellent, no issues at all there.  The narration was done as a straight narration with only a few yells and whispers acted out.  It felt incredibly slow, though. I don’t know if that was the choice of the narrator Heather Ross, or if it was how the book was meant to be read.  I understand that the book was meant to be read as a 17-year-old, but there were a lot of attitude decisions that made me dislike the main character from time to time.

Overall Intruders: The Invasion had moments where I was going to lose interest but then the author drew me back in.  The protagonist gave no reason to like or dislike her within the first few pages of the novel. But once Zoe gets into contact with her companion, I enjoyed her much more.  And even more so once she comes into contact with others (I’m trying not to give too much away).  I see that this is a series and at this point, I’m not chomping at the bits to read the next book, but that doesn’t mean I won’t read it.  I enjoyed the book enough to give it a shot to see what happens to Zoe.

By the time you're scared....
It begins with the abductions. In a single night, thousands of small children vanish from their beds.

It's too late.
A day later meteorites hit the Earth, releasing strange dust into the air.

They are here....
The dead rise, ravenous. The living dragged underground by creatures out of nightmares.

And they can smell your blood.
There is nowhere to run.
