Book Description

Book 7 in the Area 51 series

Mythological artifacts become a modern arsenal in a millennia-long interstellar battle. On one side stands the alien race that styled itself as gods to secretly steer human evolution. On the other is an elite team of Area 51 commandos, dedicated to freeing humanity from their interstellar overlords.

Special Forces officer Mike Turcotte and his former lover Lisa Duncan are among the few who know the truth about the extraterrestrial threat—and have the power to fight it. But can they save the human race from eradication or just act as pawns in an elaborate plot to enslave the planet?

Having just retrieved the legendary sword Excalibur—in actuality the control key to an alien mother ship—from atop Mount Everest, Turcotte rejoins the fight, intent on ending the ancient, bloody conflict once and for all. Yet even as he tries to avert a nuclear holocaust, a deadlier, more insidious alien foe hides in the shadows, waiting for the chance to alert its kind that Earth is ripe for conquest.

4.0 out of 5 stars It all comes down to this 4 Sept. 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Bob Mayer (writing under the pen name of Robert Doherty) has taken many a reader on a wild, amazingly adrenaline-pumping ride over the course of his Area 51 novels, and everything is finally brought together and explained in this seventh and final book of the series. I have no idea why I waited so long to read this book, having been enthralled by the earlier books as I read them one after the other a while back, and it did take a little time to regain my bearings. The author always manages to provide a lot of pertinent background information early on in each novel, and thank goodness for that. To say these books are action-packed and full of twists and turns barely begins to convey the sense of non-stop events, discoveries, missions, deaths, and surprises that pack these books almost as densely as a neutron star. By this point, there are a fairly significant number of players in the game of earth’s future: the Airlia alien race who has been on earth for millennia, the Airlia traitors who broke off and formed their own faction (and it remains murky at all times as to which side is which), the leaders of the Airlia factions and their “shadows,” Watchers and Ones Who Wait who have spent untold centuries doing just what their names imply, a mysterious and absolutely world-threatening race called the Swarm, and now yet another alien race steps to the plate. The course of the saga stretches from one end of human history to the other.
The Third World War has ended, leaving massive casualties across the entire globe, but the alien threat, while diminished, remains.

4.0 out of 5 stars The TRuth, albiet a little late 11 Feb. 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have enjoyed this series, the author has obviously put a lot of work tying in the various story arks and how the clues unfold.
The fact that the action in the present day barley covers a month at most speaks to the pace of the story.
My only critiscm is that the "Truth" is covered very quickly, the Swarm not used much and some of the Major Characters die quite quickly and some of the New Revelations covered fleetingly.
There is a bit more I would comment on but it would spoil reading the book, if I did.
Overall though, the Area 51 books are a good read, with some good characters and some great ideas. They are well worth reading and worth the money. It will be interesting to see where
Mr Doherty goes next with the story arc (A snippet of which is included at the back of the book)

2.0 out of 5 stars bored 15 Dec. 2005
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had read reviews of this series which all seemed to suggest this was going to be an enjoyable read.
I started off reading book one & was pleasantly surprised.By the time i had got to book seven i was bored.
Think of something noteworthy in history & it will be woven into one of the stories.I have read other books by this author & enjoyed them, but i felt this series was too long.

These books are loosely based on a mixture of historical characters and alien conspiracy theories that make for interesting stories.
