Book Description

6 Mar 2014 Extinction Wars
The Earth died when aliens rained thermonuclear warheads on her cities and sprayed the surface with a bio-terminator. A deadly poison drifted to every corner of the planet, threatening the last survivors with annihilation. For a soldier in Antarctica like Creed, there is only one way to keep breathing untainted air. He must join the Jelk Corporation as an assault trooper, leaving the planet for outer space. In return for his and other people’s services, the Jelk will house the last humans for as long as the assault troopers keep winning. For the price of living and the chance to save humanity, Creed has to wear a shock chip in his neck—Jelk discipline is harsh—and he has to don a symbiotic battlesuit that feeds off his sweat. Human life is cheap in the vast alien war. The assault troopers are little more than suicide soldiers, but for humanity to escape extinction, they must survive. But Creed didn’t agree to the bargain in order to remain a dog to the aliens. He has a plan, and he’ll need all his cunning to beat the extraterrestrials and begin the road to freedom for the human race.

3.0 out of 5 stars good easy read 20 Sep 2013

An easy read. It's not the most technical of books and lacks depth in the plot and characters. Having said that I enjoyed the book and I hope the story continues.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as it could be... 17 Oct 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Reads much like a book written in the 50's. It's not awful, but isn't great either. The hero just isn't quite believable enough. If you think sci-fi is too logical and Rambo is a great film you'll like this book. If not look elsewhere... say Jerry Pournelle (Future History series), Marko Kloos (Frontlines series)... Or Starship Troopers (the book the film sucks).

A really entertaining read. What I think is great 1950's style, traditional Sci-fi, fast paced and exciting. Highly recommended, you shouldn't be disappointed.
