First Encounter: Ascension Wars, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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.

This is a great start to a fantastic series and I honestly can’t wait to get my teeth into the sequel.
Five chilling ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for realism and authenticity to go with a great fast-paced read that doesn’t disappoint in any respect.
The book reads well, and the author has managed to create characters that are immediately irritating and disliked, I can not emphasis enough of how very different this invasion is and kept me reading the book in a few hours.
And not being one of those people who say how good books are, when they are not, I can honestly say this is well worth a read, easily matching his Dark Space Universe books

I say ground survey...despite drones and robots, the first close up look at the planet was done by dropping the village-idiot crew on the surface. So impatient where they to check out the planet they took no sensible precautions.
Who designed an interstellar starship, where all but two duty officers are in cryo chambers, with all the corridors and gangways open, atmosphere throughout the ship, in fact everything a full waking crew needs in working order. What happens if there is a fire or catastrophic collision? Or a couple of space aliens who have snuck on board, for that matter?
A crew member has a hybrid alien baby? Yeah, let the rapidly growing alien kid and the mother (and "father") live in the corriolis wheel alone while everyone goes to sleep for 70 odd years. Obviously, no risks there......
Been chased by aggressive alien spaceships that go invisible? Yep. Plan your 70 year sleep while you scuttle back to Earth, with the clear understanding that if you can't see them, they can't see you.
This is the tip of the iceberg of intergalactic nonsense.
