Invasion: Identity Crisis 2029, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Alien gladiator Ballista escaped to Earth. They call her a "superhero" here, whatever that is. The monsters hurtling through space call her "prey".
Ballista never knew her own people. Since childhood, she has fought and killed for the entertainment of tyrants. But now, on Earth, her peerless combat prowess has found new purpose.
And new allies. Adam Smasher’s ego outweighs his exponential powers, but he means well. And Symian deserves far better than the dominant species here is willing to give him. Humanity has potential, though. Ballista can see herself making a home here.
Until they arrive. Soon there may not be a planet left to call home....
In the genre-shattering tradition of Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Infinity War, Invasion is a non-stop romp of superhero action, space opera adventure, and pure explosive fun. J. D. Brink’s popular Identity Crisis Universe warps into the future and the present will never be the same. A must-have listen for fanboys and fangirls of every timeline!
The Identity Crisis Universe (IDCU) takes the comic books you grew up on, gamma-irradiates them, and sets them loose upon the world!

The Volans space station is attacked by biomechanical monsters. Three very important people are the designated to protect it: Adam Smasher, a physicist with super powers; Symian, a very smart gorilla; and Ballista, a gladiator from another planet and without a past.
This was a fun and quick read. I just wished there was more character development so that I could care for the heroes in the book, but there was plenty of action to make for it. There was also unexpected and somewhat forced romance. I just never seem to get why forced romance is included in books, but I guess it's not easy to make it more credible if there is little character development.
This is a mix between sci-fi and super heroes. We are reminded again and again of Adam's godly capabilities, and some other details that make the characters unique. Fast, fun, and forgettable listen.
What I really enjoyed was the duet narration, which is something seldom done. Anthony Bowling and E. L. Loren's narrations were almost seamlessly alternated. Each of them delivered great character's interpretations and brought the characters to life. The only setback is that Loren's parts had a couple of noticeable audio edits that were a bit distracting.
I would recommend this audiobook to sci-fi fans, especially if they are into super heroes literature, and want a quick and refreshing read.
