Summary

Brian Polk had been stateside for barely a year after leaving the air force when the unthinkable happened. It was an interstellar invasion - the beginning of the end of known civilization. First, military installations and the largest cities across the globe were turned to rubble. Tens of millions of souls lost during a horrific reign of terror. Government centers and law enforcement resources were next. Finally, the aliens eliminated humanity’s means to electronically communicate with each other. 

The Earupitans' technology and weaponry was so remarkable, so advanced, humanity never really had a chance. The aliens now walk brazenly among humans - their reptilian eyes always watchful, always scrutinizing. No one is safe, and almost everyone who gets taken into an OEC center never sees the light of day again. Humanity now lives in fear - freedom is a thing of the past. And then there are those who have befriended the enemy. 

But not Captain Brian Polk. He’s far more interested in taking back a little of what was stolen. When he acquires some of the alien technology, he finally has hope of making some small difference. He might even be able to pull off the impossible - that or he'll die trying.

Well written

This is a very good book, if there was a sequel I would buy it. The narrator also did pretty good.

A Bad Independence Day Knockoff

I enjoy most books by Mark Wayne McGinnis, and I absolutely loved the Scrapyard Ship series, but not this one. This was very much like a rehash of Independence Day with low IQ aliens utilizing low technology. I actually found nothing interesting in this book, and I did not care about any of the characters. Sad, I had hoped for more.
