No one ever said surviving an alien invasion would be easy.
Jack Fairbanks made it through the initial wave of attacks, but now the Mawks have seeded the Earth with dozers and crawlers, tracking beasts that crave human flesh and are bent on hunting the remnants of humankind to extinction.
Joined by Lucia, a hardened urban survivor, Jack finds himself caught up in a secret plan to turn the course of the invasion. Can a college sophomore and a ragtag force of soldiers survive when the Mawks descend from orbit and begin their final assault?
Praise for Thunder Wells
"Ervin's got another winner with Thunder Wells. I love seeing the effects of an apocalyptic alien invasion through the eyes of ordinary people. Jack and Lucia are fantastic! As soon as I finished, I wanted to start over and read it all again because it's just that awesome." Angie Lofhouse, author of The Glory of the Stars

Alien Invasion ~ Science Fiction ~ Post-Apocalyptic
I requested and was granted a code for the Audible version of this book.
This was pretty good. A fresh perspective on an alien invasion that happens in the aftermath. The good guy, bad guys, and other bad guys all played their parts quite well, and I liked how the story wove everything together. Honestly, though, one my absolute favorite things about this book was that there was a "team" (I consider Jack and Lucia a team in my own mind haha) consisting of a man and a woman. And it wasn't sexual! Seriously, you don't actually find that very often, and it was AWESOME to see two people who could be just friends in an apocalyptic novel. I know, I'm weird. But I don't care. I LOVE LOVE LOVE being able to find something new, and this book had just the thing I needed. I was getting a little overwhelmed in too much lovey dovey lately lol.
I give this book 4 Platypires. And that is the rating I'm going with for Goodreads and Amazon.
The Audible version is going to be a 3, as the narrator wasn't my cup of tea. He had a pleasant voice, a steady pace, knew the story. But, I found myself bored and lulled into a state of not even paying attention a few times, causing me to have to go back and listen again. I'm not sure why it was like this for me. I realize that most others loved his narration, but something was just off for me.
If you like aliens and survival of the fittest and smartest, you should definitely check this out.
So, overall: Book is 4 Platypires, Audible is 3.
