Book Description

Beyond Armageddon II: Empire is the second installment in the five-part Beyond Armageddon series. Four years after the initial invasion, Trevor Stone has grown his band of survivors into a small nation fighting alien occupiers and extraterrestrial monsters. While his best General leads an expedition to the Arctic Circle to recover a powerful artifact, Trevor finds there is little difference between a war of liberation and a war of conquest.

Empire will take the reader to chaotic battles atop glaciers, to street-to-street fighting as canine hunters battle horrific creatures, to a village in North Carolina that forces Trevor to decide between victory and his soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good sequel! When's there gonna be another?! 2 Feb. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this the minute i saw it: i liked the first Beyond Armageddon book, and was hoping this one would be as good.
Well, it's better. It caters to that fan-boy in me that likes seeing big epic setting, armies tooling up, and climatic battles with alien armies.
Don't want to give it away, but a lot of the story is about Trevor consolidating his empire (hence the name, i imagine) by basically getting hold of a lot of cool stuff and training lots of cool people. It's unadulterated fun, with some interesting moral twists at the end.
My only criticism is that there's still questions unanswered, but I'm guessing this series'll get released pretty regularly so I can look forward to closure at some point.
Not sure why it's more expensive than the last but i guess that it's appealing directly to the ones who bought the prequel. If that's the case, and you liked it, the extra 70p makes no difference.

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting better 1 Aug. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm pleased to say the issues in the first novel aren't replicated here. It seems the writer is learning his trade and improving all the time. There are a few clunky sentences but not enough to be irritating and certainly no more than I would expect in a well known authors work. There are mistakes in the prose but again for the production price these are acceptable.
The structure is much better than in the author's first outing. The story elements interact and intertwine well and the suspense is kept throughout the book. There are none of the easy fixes that were prevalent in his first novel. Characters often succeeded through convenient plot twists but the author hasn't taken the easy way out with this sequel. He's solved the issues in a realistic way and has been able to skilfully write his way out of predicaments instead of throwing in a solution from left field.
The book is more realistic despite this being on the verge of unbelievable sci-fi. It's more of a sci-fi fantasy novel than hard sci-fi, which is not a bad thing for me. The action and the character's responses are more realistic and believable. These improvements help bridge the gap between the contemporary setting and the outlandish premise.
Unfortunately, Anthony has kept the annoying habit of referencing classic war films which is a pet peeve of mine. Seriously, you can't mess with John Wayne! I also thought the way in which the love interest was quashed form the first book was clumsy. However, I got over that pretty quickly and it didn't detract from the rest of the novel.
I enjoyed the read immensely even more than I did some of Neal Asher's work near the end of one of his series. The premise while a little bit unbelievable is great fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pace and Energy maintained for this sequel 1 Mar. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
As the second of five books, so I believe, the story of regaining the earth from the alien monsters continues well.

The pace changes direction somewhat and maybe speed, as the soldiers/survivors of Trevor Stone's movement have to maintain social structure while still expanding their territory. This environment presents opportunities to those who are politically and power motivated.

There are still many alien forms to eradicate and many that they have to find ways to kill, and this is described through Nina's experiences as she continues as one of the main characters.

Trevor still finds the responsibility hard to bear and a the Product Description says, he finds there is little difference between a war of liberation and a war of conquest; Trevor is faced with a dilemma that does not sit well with his world.

The nature of the book compared to the last one is of a 'quieter' and perhaps more reflective author; perhaps experimenting with the characters to expand ability. I felt that this worked well producing a book that compliments the first and leaves me wanting to carry on reading the ones that follow.

I love this series, best books I have read in a while.

This book was quite sad, I actually had a tear in my eye at a couple of points reading this (okay I admit it doesn't take much to make me blubber). I read the three books one after the other, so I'm a bit unsure what happended in each book, but I can say I have cried, laughed & been absolutely raging reading this series!

I love Trevor. I love these books. Anthony De Cosmo is now on my list of favourite authors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb addictive series 27 Jun. 2011
By DMD
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A really interesting series of books and well worth the cost of each one.
reminds me of the Stephen King books I have read. I would recommend this series to any one who likes SF.
Very well written and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. A new dimension in SF writing. It really works and allows the imagination to soar.
Apocalyptic, Scary, Intriguing,only some of the words to describe this excellent series.
