    1. 2.5 stars. Two stars might be a little harsh for this book but I couldn't quite bring myself to say "I liked it" so I split the difference at 2.5 stars. I did not enjoy this installment as much as the previous books in the Area 51 series and I am not entirely sure why. Like the other two, this story is fast paced and expands on the story begun in the other two. I think maybe the "freshness" of the story has worn off. For whatever reason, the story didn't entertain as much as the previus books. I [...]

    2. This was a quick read and had some interesting, though dark, elements (an ebola-like alien-created virus was tough reading giving the current state of events). Unfortunately, the structure of the book itself was a bit of a mess. There were just far too many side people/missions and it turned out that most just didn't really matter. There was also excessive re-capping. It felt at times as though the author didn't really have a novel length story and was stretching with side stories and recaps. A [...]

    3. Only 2 stars for this, although it was more like a 2.5 star book. I really enjoyed the first two in the series but this one was a bit of a mess. Far too many characters and substories going on and not much to keep you interested in most of them. It seemed too technical with very little on the two main characters, who were sidelined to a host of new characters who mostly died. It had also been a while since I read the first two books and I found the whole explanation of the 'good aliens', 'bad al [...]

    4. Between this Area 51 series and the Atlantis series (both from Bob Meyer) I am in 7th heaven for some good ole sci-fi action. I have read up to book 4 (of 6) in the Atlantis series and plan to start book 5 real soon .On the other hand, The Mission is only the 3rd of 7 or 9 books. It seems I have a ways to go there.Each one is somewhat similar but different enough to make both series fun to read. I learn a lot about some far off locations. Understanding that some facts are tilted/changed to make [...]

    5. If you liked the previous books in the series, you'll probably like this one as well.I found that unlike the book before it, this one spent the first half recapping what had taken place in the prior books. While it's important to know or remind us about things that had already happened, I didn't expect to find that nothing new was really going on for 150 pages!Thankfully, the book really took off after that, building up to a massively large, action-packed climax that was really enjoyable.

    6. Another great story in this series! Doherty is a master at writing the military scifi story. He has taken just enough real archeology, added some current alien visitation thinking and come up with a real page-turner. About to tackle the next one "The Sphinx"! The only down-side to these books is the difficult reaidng in the ebook format. MANY typos, font changes, etc. that can be annoying.

    7. The pandemic theme makes this pretty grim reading (particularly when people around you are getting sick with influenza left and right). However, I felt that this volume lacked some of the appeal of the earlier books. The novelty of the alien theme has worn off by now, and instead of forwarding the overarching plot of the series, this book introduces a number of ultimately (probably) insignificant subplots that felt superfluous and really went nowhere. There were also a lot of "info-dump"-passage [...]

    8. Military Action and Aliens.This book series is so well written that I have found it very difficult to put down. The story, as well as the action, pull you in. Like I said, military action and aliens. Enough said.

    9. Keeps getting better!LOVE the series. Aliens, good guys, bad guys, covert factions. This series is so well written, worth my time to read it !! You will LOVE it too!

    10. The third in the Area 51 series is, of course, a continuation of events from the first two books. I didn't enjoy it as much, probably because the novelty of the central idea has worn off somewhat, but still there is enough here for me to continue pursuing the entire series.The new aspect of the larger alien story this time around is a threat of biological weapon attack by the aliens, a sort of "Black Death" plague to be released, destroying all humanity. The novel is constructed as the previous [...]

    11. The 3rd book in Robert Doherty's Area 51 Series. As with the second book, this book picks up very shortly after the end of the previous book, and features the surviving characters/heroes from it as well. With Major Turcotte and Dr. Duncan being what I would consider the primary characters once again.In this book, the Guardian Computer on Easter Island sets in motion a plan to once again cull the human race with a plague, but this time on a much more global scale, using it's long-lived biological [...]

    12. Robert Doherty is the pen name for Bob Mayer—primarily known for military action novels. The ‘Area 51’ series are (I suspect) stress relief for the author, and deliver exactly what you’d expect: silly, but fun matinee SciFi adventure. The premise: Area 51 is everything the conspiracy theorists have claimed. Alien spacecraft are being held there, along with a myriad of other goodies, and now the extraterrestrials have returned to claim their shit. The same characters carry through the nov [...]

    13. The series is fun and well written for sure, but after a first book that was really what I was looking for (Ancient Aliens mysteries) I think the author is going more and more toward the military spectrum of sci-fi. I would prefer more Alien mysteries and less military mumbo-jumbo action. But this is a long series (8 books) so I have hopes that the next book will veer back to the Ancient Aliens vibe I so loved in the first one and because the books are all easy-to-read, full of action and fun I [...]

    14. The Third Installment of the Area 51 Series and it continues on the drama. In this one, more secret underground places are revealed with alien artifacts related to the Airlia or Artad. Meanwhile, a new threat is detected in the form of what seems to be the bubonic plague--sent by the Airlia. Turcotte, Yakov and Duncan race to stop the plague and find a cure. Meanwhile, two space shuttles are launched to try to bring back the mother ship. Plus we are introduced to the Watchers and learn more abou [...]

    15. With the third entry in his Area 51 series Bob Mayer pulls the story from the second book back together while still expanding it without the feel of changing continuity I felt in the second entry. Bioengineering and more secret groups and organizations lead the way while things get murkier and the survival of the human species is put on the line. Another fast fun read.

    16. The battle continues - with new players being added. In addition to two possibly waring groups of aliens and humans, new groups have joined the fight and our heros have no idea who these groups are, where they are, or what their motives might be. Despite that, they manage to foil yet another plot to end the world just another day in paradise!

    17. The mystery of the ages unfold as the heroes learn more about the secret alien war that has raged in the shadows of Earth's history for five thousand years. While again I feel the author spends way more word count on explaining military terminology and gear porn (one of the bigger problems in Mil Sci-Fi) the brisk action, unfolding mysteries, and likable characters make this an enjoyable read.

    18. Another great book in the series. Not as action packed as the first two, this is more of a mystery featuring the black death. This is a fantastic book in this series. The author is great in making everything so convincing in these novels. His research is great and everything in the novel sounds so plausible that it enhances the read.

    19. The third book in the Area 51 series. While I really enjoyed the first two, barely able to put the original down, this didn't capture my attention as much. A good read none-the-less, but doesn't live up to the first two. Proceeding on to book 4 to see if it improves.

    20. I'm finding this series fun enough to keep reading through, but I'm not FEELING anything while listening to it. No Fear, Apprehension, Glee, or any other emotion that always comes along with getting immersed in a new universe.

    21. The pace of this book didn't seem as fast as the past two. I felt that the whole Mission/Guides/Watchers plot took too long to reveal but it certainly picked up after. I like how some of the alien race's intentions are finally revealed and they clearly want to wipe us out.

    22. Robert Doherty does it again. Shocking new revelations about the Ariela emerge in the midst of a new Black Death gripping South America. You'll be left wondering just how much this alien race had to do with human development.

    23. Found this title a bit confusing and all over the place. Multiple strands of adventure, people flitting all over the place, different agencies all interfering with each other. It was a job keeping track of everything.

    24. The digital version of this book is not up to par. Several times the font gets really large and turns into a blue color.

    25. Listen to the audiobook it feels like a spoof of any and every military based story ever it is hilarious and I'm going to keep making my way through the series.
