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.
The aliens wish to invade the earth and convert us all to their religion so, obviously, they land in the continent that does not house any of the main religeous centres! Why? Because ALL aliens MUST invade and beat America first! It says so in the book!
There are also plot holes as big as a planet which does not help with the flow but the poor grammar, spelling mistakes and missing words all remove you from the world as you realise the author has not paid any attention. Words that are obviously spell checked but the wrong word chosen just confuses at times too. The addition of acronyms does not help. Whilst the spoken word might use them it is very poor to use them in the descriptions in the book and only further serves to confuse as you have to work out what the acronyms are for.
The author, basically, goes on to say that America is the greatest country in the world and has the best military in the world, which it doesn't; it just has lots of military.
Come on! Get off your high horse and see the huge opportunity you wasted here. It would have been a mediocre book had it not been for the "America is the best" rhetoric that plagues this book, so instead it plunges to what can only be described as absolute rubbish.
The characters are tossed to one side constantly so you don't care what happens and it gets far too repetitive for it. As for the Iraq part? Total nonsense and a deep misunderstanding of both the culture and history of the country. What a waste of a word count.Read more ›
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.

A number of unnecessary typos and similar but overall a good read. Would certainly benefit from an editor, but even as it stands this is worth buying and reading.Published 5 months ago by Bernard Davis
Enjoyed the book. Would have liked more information on the aliens though. Same with some of the humans. Might try another of his books soonPublished 5 months ago by Philt522
I am a great fan of Mr Nuttall and have read many of his books. This book has to be the worse he has written, very slower to much needless details that takes away the will to read... Read morePublished 9 months ago by Dave

A good read and nice that laws of physics aren't bent too much. Ending seems a bit hurried but overall worth the purchasePublished 18 months ago by david
A really good well written book. Loved it. Good characters and the alien culture made sense. Christopher Nuttall goes from strength to strengthPublished 20 months ago by AOK
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.Published 22 months ago by MR S ARNOLD
This is a book that keeps you entertained from the start to the end, the story keeps you in suspense, and the pace is fast.Published on 28 July 2014 by Chow
