First Contact didn’t go as expected. Now they own us.

Earth has been conquered by a massive galactic empire, and its war machine needs soldiers. In a cruel twist of fate, 14-year-old Joe Dobbs accidentally ends up on a ship carrying Earth’s children to an alien training planet. To make it out alive, he must survive an apathetic bureaucracy that sees humans as little more than spare rations. Meat with guns. Or, if they’re really unlucky, servants.

The oldest of the children drafted from humanity’s devastated planet, Joe unwittingly becomes the centerpiece in a millennia-long alien struggle for independence. Once his training begins, one of the elusive and prophetic Trith gives Joe a spine chilling prophecy that the universe has been anticipating for millions of years: Joe will be the one to finally shatter the vast alien government known as Congress. And, the Trith cannot lie.…but first, Joe has to make it through boot camp.

For lovers of sci-fi thrillers, alien invasion stories, space opera, and sprawling first contact science fiction, this is an unforgettable post-apocalyptic epic about perseverance and survival in a harsh new world where humanity is just another item on the menu, performed by Jeff Hays with Soundbooth Theater.

Note: Contains an exclusive, audio-only zero story at the end of the book, The Legend of ZERO: Proposal of the Forgotten

Highly entertaining

As usual, SBT delivers a quality performance of a great story. The story was a unique blend of man vs. man, man vs. self, and man vs. society/monster (aliens). I appreciate how Zero is the underdog, but never gets access to a super powerful weapon/AI/ship. This story has a creative mix of luck/character personality/and friends to hep the underdog come out alive, if not in a favorable manner.

U guys Rock!!!!!

Zach Johnson u did a excellent job on this project! And the extra effort with talking with the artist shows in the work! And yes we can’t forget about Jeff Hayes and the rest of the team!!!!! U ROCK!!!!! Ty Chris Boquecosa

The Legend of Zero: Forging Zero Just as Good As the Book.

I first read Forging Zero by Sara King in 2012 and I was so impressed with it that i devoured as many of books of the series as I could, and then everything else Sara had published. I've read all of them many times, just as I've done with all my favorite authors. Forging Zero is just as excellent in both text and audiobooks. This one is narrated by Jeff Hays, and it's perfect! Happily, I experienced the emotions of the characters, just as I did when reading the book. I love character-driven stories! Sara is one of the very best for this category and the Sci-Fi/Fantasy genre. I much prefer her to her hero, George R. R. Martin. He's excellent, but his books sometimes drag, allowing my mind to wander. His books are usually far more expensive than I'm willing to pay and the audio book prices are outrageous! Soundbooth Theater's prices are very reasonable and there are a lot of freebies, including some by Sara, and excellent discounts on many other audio books. I highly recommend the entire audio catalogue of books by Sara King, all of which you will find only on Soundbooth Theater. More books are coming soon!
