Three 20-somethings are all that stands between an otherworldly threat and the survival of Earth in the latest thrill ride by Dennis E. Taylor, author of the Audible and New York Times best-selling Bobiverse series.
Jack Kernigan is having a bad day...a bad year...a bad life. After being booted out of MIT, he’s back in his Ohio hometown, working for the family business, facing a life of mediocrity. Then one day, out on a delivery, his truck hits...something. Something big...something furry...something invisible. And, it turns out, something not of this Earth.
Fate can play funny tricks. Which is why Jack suddenly finds himself the planet’s best hope to unravel a conspiracy of galactic proportions that could spell the end of the human race. All Jack and his best friends, Natalie and Patrick, have to defeat an alien threat is their wits, a lot of coffee, and a rather snippy AI named Sheldon. Plus, their own spaceship.
After all, if you’re going to rescue the world, the least you can get out of it is your own spaceship.

I enjoyed it a lot.
Like all his books, great snappy dialog, absolutely laden down with contemporary nerd culture - it would be helpful if you knew the difference between Star Trek and Star Wars. Funny. And like his other books, all the best lines are delivered by an artificial intelligence. Its all very wholesome stuff, no sex or real violence, would make an excellent teen young adult selection, which doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it as an ancient adult.
He is recycling his ideas a lot - the use of AIs, machines that can semi-magically make whatever you want, but the stories move along, the dialog is funny, the characters are likable, I enjoyed reading it.
The insanely snarky, cynical, sarcastic AI gave me cramps from laughing so hard.
Do I want a continuation?
Oh yes, please, with sugar and sprinkles on top.
It's zany on a level of Looney Tunes meets Doctor Who, with a nice sprinkle of Encounter of the Third Kind.
Fun, entertaining, definitely calling for more.
Are the protagonists relatable? Yes.
Do they do some pretty dumb stuff at times? Hell, yeah.
