Book Description

We are not alone…

Earth - today, we go about our everyday business. Tomorrow, it doesn't matter: The Invaders from Space have arrived. And for all the worst reasons... Humanity is about to be brought face to face with the most dangerous enemy it has ever faced, at the worst possible time. But the aliens don't care - they have only one goal - the complete conquest of the Earth and converting us to their religion, by any means necessary. From Texas, to Australia, to the Holy Land, the bitter struggle for victory rages, with millions of innocent lives caught in the crossfire. Victory is our only hope for survival...

But can humanity stand a chance when the enemy holds all the cards?

More About the Author

Christopher Nuttall has been planning sci-fi books since he learned to read. Born and raised in Edinburgh, Chris created an alternate history website and eventually graduated to writing full-sized novels. Studying history independently allowed him to develop worlds that hung together and provided a base for storytelling. After graduating from university, Chris started writing full-time. As an indie author, he has published ten novels (so far) through Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing. The Royal Sorceress is his first novel to be professionally published. Chris is currently living in Borneo with his partner, muse, and critic Aisha.

Christopher's novel, The Royal Sorceress, will be published by Elsewhen Press in paperback in Feb.

Chris has a blog where he published updates, snippets and world-building notes at http://chrishanger.wordpress.com/ and a website at http://www.chrishanger.net.

As a matter of principle, all of Chris's self-published Kindle books are DRM-free.

5.0 out of 5 stars We come in peace..... 13 Mar. 2014
By Ian T
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Yeah right. Cunning, sly, untrustworthy, evil. Am I describing the aliens in Mr Nuttall's story of their invasion of our fair planet? Actually I could be describing both aliens and humans and Mr Ns story of how this comes about is a joy to read. As has been remarked before, there are typos and repetition - the classic indicators of direct publishing but readers should be aware that the work will not have seen the copy editor and proof reading process that a "published" book sees, which is why there is a significant cost for the publisher to consider when they take on an author. Sometimes I fold my arms and I say praise be to DP, I would not be enjoying works from any of the authors I do now without it and Christopher Nuttall is one of them. It's obvious publishers can't pick up everyone but many of the DP's do get picked up eventually and rightly so. Back to the book; CN explores themes and scenarios used in other CN works but the context fits so what the hell. It is a page swiper and with very good characterization. Having many individual names to remember can be confusing for someone of low intelligence such as me but that's what the Kindles Notes are for. The crazy science plot devices are used sparingly which enhances the writing and even when used you think "yeah I can see that" and I also like how CN introduces a scene which is open to interpretation and is later explained but the initial effect keeps the flow of excitement. How does Earth fair? We shall wait for the sequel.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyabe story but a few mistakes... 7 Feb. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading Invasion (with plenty of nostalgic nods to other sci-fi invasion novels and TV series), and it built up into an action packed story from the initial detection of a UFO.

The plot kept me interested (always wanting to see what was around the corner, and I wasn't disappointed), though more research was needed with regards to the military services and technology used...these can easily be found by reading good techno-thrillers (i.e. Larry Bond and Tom Clancy for authenticity and application of military hardware).

The book, regrettably loses a star for spelling mistakes, poor grammar and far too much overuse of specific acronyms that then go on to say the same thing again, (and also too many paragrpahs said the exact same thing twice, but worded differently), which sadly kept pulling me out of the story.

Proof reading is definetly needed for this novel.

But despite its few evident faults, I honestly did enjoy the book, and the POV of the aliens was interesting when they were deciphering the likes of Independence Day/Babylon 5/Star Trek TV transmissions and wandering if they were real.

I didn't actually pay for this book, but came across it as a free book on a kindle search, but I'd say the price offered is about right - the book just needs tidying up abit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 5 July 2013
By Gobberz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a brilliant and well researched book. I wasn't sure what to expect but now that I think about it, some of it went as I expected.

Little grammatical errors here and there aren't a problem but in all, the story is excellent. Bringing in resistance to an overwhelming enemy, insurgency, collaboration on both sides l, and the use of current technology.

There are also lessons to. If we are to really explore space and possibly defend ourselves against attack or, to work with those during possible first contact we, need to ignore politics and religion and realise we need to pool all our physical and emotional knowledge together to better ourselves. It may initially use a lot of resources but if profit ans greed are no longer taken into account, the profits could be endless.

4.0 out of 5 stars unputdownable! 20 Feb. 2013
By Mazza
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What an excellent believable book. I only have 2 criticisms - one being that the book needs editing badly, as there are numerous spelling mistakes, words missing and bad grammar throughout the book, and secondly, characters were not developed properly over the course of the book, which leads me to believe that it should have been two books and not one. Nevertheless, it is a compelling read from start to finish and I hope the author will consider writing a sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 13 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book a lot. I am a big fan of post apocalyptic novels and this one certainly hit the spot. It had the suspense of not knowing what was going to happen at any point and you certainly could not predict the story line. Eventful book and an interesting interpretation of how humanity deals with the situation. It was one of those books which I could not put down which is a rare find.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it 24 Sept. 2014
By Kdog
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A well crafted story. This was all the better for covering the entire event. Some books only cover a snapshot of events and finish without a sequel and can be disappointing. It moved along nicely and never drifted from the action. Having said all that it could quite easily have been written over three novels, invasion, insurgency and insurrection but it was still very enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read 7 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very good story I have read quite a few invasion type stories but they all have a superman type hero who saves the earth. This book doesn't have that and is a more believable story, the characters are also more human than superhuman. I took off one star as there are a few annoying spelling mistakes such as "a" instead of "an".

An interesting take on the reason for alien invasion. Thought that the internal politics of the USA was done well. Would have liked a bit more information on the UK.
