WOW. That was my first thought when I finished this book. I was enthralled from the first chapter to the last. Ray Barclay works on a space station doing research. Ray successfully completed one of his experiments and when he left the lab to tell his coworkers he discovers everyone on the station is dead. When Ray makes it to an observation area he sees that something happens to earth too. Ray starts to put everything together and realizes he is humanity's last hope.
As a character Ray is amazing. The dialogue he has with himself and something I don’t want to spoil was terrific. His dialogue has a lot of comedy to it during these serious events which help to lighten the mood.
The world building was absolutely incredible. I work in a lab so I enjoyed the lab descriptions, but the space station descriptions are absolutely unmatched. This was the best depiction of space I have ever read or listened to. This is the first book in a series and I already can not wait for the next entry to release.
The narration by Scott Aiello was perfect. All his dialogues were performed on par or better than all narrators I have listened to. This book was the total package. It's a well-developed, fast pace story with excellent narration.
Final Score 5/5
