THEY ARE COMING. THE COUNTDOWN HAS BEGUN.
The discovery of objects approaching from Jupiter orbit sets humanity on edge, sending cities into panic. Most is unknown, but thanks to the popular Astral space app, everyone knows the few facts the government has tried to hide:
The objects are enormous spheres numbering in the dozens, maybe hundreds. They are on an approach vector toward Earth … and they will arrive in six days.
Entrepreneur Meyer Dempsey is in New York, realizing the time has come to act on all the preparations he’s made without ever consciously knowing why. For years Meyer has been preoccupied by a dreamlike sense of coming peril and knows where he must take his family … if, that is, they can make it before society eats itself alive with fear.
This relentless, page-turning tale of apocalyptic dawn is the first in the Alien Invasion series by masters of story Truant & Platt, authors of The Beam, Robot Proletariat, and many more.
Interesting, a plot that moves quickly, with believable scenes and scenarios. Some of the internal dialogues are a bit wordy, but not impossible to appreciate. I will buy the next books in the series.
A great read
I was looking for some good "end of the world" reading for an upcoming flight. No zobies here, but well written characters and a tight time-line plot, with the classic cliff hanger to hook you into the next installment.
I have never read a book more poorly written than this one. A legitimate publisher would never have put this in print after reading it. It doesn't appear that the authors themselves were paying attention to their own storyline. They repeated themselves over and over on their descriptions of the people and events. I will not read the following books because the first one is so bad.
