Publisher's Summary

Jack Munroe grew up in the Asteroid Belt and learned to never take anything at face value. In space, you assume, you die. So when Aliens show up in the distant Kuiper Belt, out beyond Pluto, asking for a First Contact 'chat' with his crewmates on the comet hunting spaceship Uhuru, he warns his captain not to trust words but to get the heck away. His evolutionary biology studies have taught him that bright skin colors, shark-like teeth and talons mean these Aliens are star-traveling predators! But that violates the 'feel good' society promoted by Earth's Unity government. A bloody fight ensues and Jack realizes these Aliens are keystone predators aiming to add Sol system to their home territory. Jack leads a battle to ensure Humans will never be slaves to Aliens. If someone has to die to make space safe for humanity, then those dying will be Aliens! This combat Sci-Fi tale tells the story of Jack Munroe, crewman on a comet hunter spaceship that makes First Contact with 'Keystone predator' Aliens in the Kuiper Belt beyond Pluto. When his crewmates die in a trap set by the Rizen aliens, Jack and his buddy Max begin an anti-Alien crusade that defies the social orthodoxy of Earth's Unity government and puts their lives at risk.

    "Eat or be Eaten "

    King combines ingredients from Star Trek, Star Wars, and old Saturday morning movie serials to create a science fiction casserole that will delight listeners/readers. He borrows the template of British command structure which was so obvious in Star Trek. He also spices his scenes with that "Band of Brothers" ethos that life aboard the Enterprise had. To that base he adds a cast of intergalactic life forms, all sentient, reminiscent of Star Wars. The diversity of characters is well developed, maintained, and made believable King's choice of Somerset Hamilton as narrator. Finally, the author punctuates the rhythm of his tale with one cliff-hanging event after another as was a main stay of Saturday movie action serials. All-in-all, Earth vs. Aliens is great dish for those whose tastes run to space based science fiction filled with action.

    Story
    "Couldnt get over the accents, plot is simplistic."

    Of the major characters in this book, 2 have french accents, then there is an american with a southern accent, a russian, irish, finn, jamaican, asian, a bunch of alien accents, etc. You could be forgiven for thinking no two characters have the same accent, which is bedlam. I found it very distracting.
    The main character also views aliens strictly thru predator/prey or pack mentality, and he is never wrong, or at least he was not 2/3 of the way thru when i stopped listening. As a result, the aliens give a very poor accounting of themselves. They are all bestial and unsophisticated.
    Lastly, the author uses the protagonist to spell out his theories and reference. texts that may or may not apply in space while fighting aliens, and he has the typical outsiders distrust of government and just plain other people in general.
