A dystopian earth. A broken military. It sounds like the right time for an alien invasion!
The Collective Military has spent its years destroying the last remnants of The Hive, an alien force that invaded Earth and devastated the old world.
Alexander King, a soldier of the Collective Military, discovers evidence that the Hive's presence remains far stronger than commonly believed. With his new information, it becomes vital that the collective act fast, for if they don't, the world will be destroyed beyond repair.
In this dystopian alien invasion sci-fi thriller, come along for this complex, fast-paced, and subversive story.
I seem to be on an apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic kick and I couldn't love it more. Sometimes you just need a good end of the world book to sink your teeth into and this one does not disappoint.
This book is anything but predictable. It has lots of twists and surprises that kept me guessing about what would happen until the very end. I applaud the author for his vivid imagination in crafting such a clever and thought-provoking novel.
