Ambush (Sector 64, #2) by Dean M. ColeABRs full SECTOR 64: Ambush audiobook review can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.
I have found that in a lot of these space alien military stories that the authors can some times get too caught up in the explanations of the new technology. Detracting from character development and story line. I, as usual, have pretty high hopes for this one. As it vould be a stunner or a snoozer.
Cole creates a parallel world, or is it? Where humans are actually decedents of the most technologically advanced beings in the universe. They came to Earth and integrated with the neanderthals and this is why humans had evolved so quickly.
Jake Giard and Airforce captain given the, what I will call, promotion of a lifetime. Being chosen to be introduced to and acquainted with amazingly advanced aircraft, or space craft, depending on where youre flying. During his technology tour the arch enemies of our ancestors come to destroy us to hurt them.
Then there is Giards girlfriend Sandra Fitzpatrick who wakes up under attack from alien creatures. While fighter planes are no match against the advanced race, she has only one thing one her mind. Are my parents ok?. Thus she must navigate a once familiar landscape that is now war torn, but where are the casualties? Only piles of clothes remain of the citizens caught in the path of destruction.
As with most apocalyptic scenarios that I am familiar with. Only the really sick and demented seem to survive these situations and are put in Sandys path.
SECTOR 64: Ambush was a highly imaginative action packed apocalyptic assault on your mind. Take everything that you think you know about the current military, the knowledge that we are alone in the universe, and flip it upside-down. I will continue to listen to this series.
Cole uses technology very well and did not bore me with the explanations. Solid character development, something that is often lacking in the genre. A plausible storyline that goes back a millennia or more.
I am looking forward to the next book in this series as I have to know what happens next. What other alien races are out there and what other adventures are to be had.
I am a first time listener of Michael Ortego and he now has a life long fan. My first impression was that he was going to perform in a manner that was stiff and cold. I as so glad that within the first hour, he changed my mind.
Characterizations were on point, especially the enemy lizard like aliens, so creepy. Ortego was able to breath life into the imagination of Cole and bring this story to life. Pacing fluctuations that kept me engaged and interested in all of the goings on.

BEAR AMBUSH! (LOOTED his CAVE...) - Last Day on Earth Survival (F2P)
In , Kefir leapt out of the starting gates in Volgograd with a team of five making games for Russian social networks.

Unity powers all their launched games. In a market saturated with survival games, Kefir looked for ways to stand out. Still, he understands that some players like instructions. To start, the studio uses Unity to speed up and optimize their game architecture and coding tasks.
Wilbers-Rost, a specialist in early German archaeology, peered through wire-rimmed glasses, brushed away some earth, and handed an object to me. Inch by inch, several young archaeologists under her direction are bringing to light a battlefield that was lost for almost 2, years, until an off-duty British Army officer stumbled across it in The sandal nail was a minor discovery, extracted from the soil beneath an overgrown pasture at the base of Kalkriese the word may derive from Old High German for limestone , a foot-high hill in an area where uplands slope down to the north German plain. But it was further proof that one of the pivotal events in European history took place here: in A. The battle led to the creation of a militarized frontier in the middle of Europe that endured for years, and it created a boundary between Germanic and Latin cultures that lasted 2, years. Benario, emeritus professor of classics at EmoryUniversity, a very different Europe would have emerged. Founded at least according to legend in b.
The congressional resolution seemed about as innocuous as they come. It commemorated the 40th anniversary of Earth Day and honored its late founder, Sen. Gaylord Nelson D-Wisc. But in this highly politically charged Congress, even a minor measure can touch off a legislative scuffle. When Coburn blocks a bill, his reasons are typically fiscal. But the Earth Day resolution entailed no federal outlays.
Ambush predators or sit-and-wait predators are carnivorous animals that capture or trap prey by stealth or by strategy typically not conscious , rather than by speed or by strength. Ambush predators sit and wait for prey, often from a concealed position, and then launch a rapid surprise attack. The ambush may be set by hiding in a burrow, by camouflage , by aggressive mimicry , or by the use of a trap. The predator then uses a combination of senses to assess the prey and to time the strike. Nocturnal ambush predators such as cats and snakes have vertical slit pupils , helping them to judge the distance to prey in dim light.
