Product Description

Product Description

Meet Marcus Donovan; astronomer, day dreamer, and smart ass. He was just another researcher in a jumpsuit until he saw something that didn't fit. At the time, it seemed to be nothing but a blip on a sensor read-out, an asteroid that wasn't an asteroid, but it became his obsession. He named it Zebra-1, and now he's hurtling through the solar system on a mission to see it in person.

Meanwhile, the Earth has its own visitors. Seven massive vessels appear out of nowhere and rain hell down from orbit, reducing civilization to a pile of ashes and rubble. Our world is conquered before anyone even knows we're under attack.

Enter Jack Hernandez, a search & rescue specialist and true blue everyday hero. After crash-landing in the wasted ruins of China, he links up with the scattered resistance and begins to fight back. Having witnessed the invaders' arrival first hand, he's driven to do whatever it takes to make them pay in blood.

Neither Jack nor Marcus ever could have predicted it, but humanity's future now depends on them both. One will be bonded to an ancient warship and asked to lead, while the other is imprisoned, tortured and forced to submit; before it's over, they'll each face challenges beyond imagination in a savage war as old as time.

When the stars rain down from the sky, who will rise up to meet them?

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a peek 6 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
As a definitive non fan of the sci fi genre, i really wasn`t too sure about reading Stars Rain Down, but I am kind of glad I did. once you get past the space techno babble, you have a good story about two men on whose shoulders land the responsibility to save humanity from an unexpected alien invasion - a case of mistaken I dentity on the part of the aliens! There is Jack - a man who beleives in preserving life, suddenly finds himself thrust into role of ruthless soldier and leader, and faced with making tough decisions that upturn the very moral code he lives by, and Marcus - space explorer extrodinarre, who happens to be on a mission in space when war kicks off, and who must race to build an army big enough to bring back to earth and reclaim his world. Will they prevail, or will humanity be blotted from existence? Pick up and find out - its worth it!
I only gave this four stars as I can`t say the book managed to completely turn me, and there was the odd typo...

When I started to read this novel I was surprised at the pace it moved at, quick changes between each scenario kept me interested. The creative aspects of the alien physiology is interesting and in many ways reminds me of the halo game franchise. Anyone who likes fast inventive action based sci fiction will love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 27 Jun 2013

I read this book sometime ago and loved it. It caught me by surprise with its originality and it has long been a favourite of mine in this genre, along with Rendezvous with Rama (to give you an idea of how highly I regard this novel).
And today, the author announced that he is hard at work on the sequel, which I have been checking back for.
Good job Mr. Randolph. I am eagerly anticipating the next installment.
