THEY ARE COMING. THE COUNTDOWN HAS BEGUN.
The discovery of objects approaching from Jupiter orbit sets humanity on edge, sending cities into panic. Most is unknown, but thanks to the popular Astral space app, everyone knows the few facts the government has tried to hide:
The objects are enormous spheres numbering in the dozens, maybe hundreds. They are on an approach vector toward Earth … and they will arrive in six days.
Entrepreneur Meyer Dempsey is in New York, realizing the time has come to act on all the preparations he’s made without ever consciously knowing why. For years Meyer has been preoccupied by a dreamlike sense of coming peril and knows where he must take his family … if, that is, they can make it before society eats itself alive with fear.
This relentless, page-turning tale of apocalyptic dawn is the first in the Alien Invasion series by masters of story Truant & Platt, authors of The Beam, Robot Proletariat, and many more.

Couldn't put it down
This book was a great find! Aliens are coming and humans are freaking out, as usual. The authors know what you want and deliver it.
Invasion kept me reading late into the night!
I am over a half century old. I have been reading novels since I was about 12 years old. I've read so many books from so many genres that I find myself being very judgemental of a story very quickly. If it doesn't catch my attention, if I don't like or connect with the characters within the first few chapters, I don't bother reading more of it. There are too many good stories to bother with a slow, Poorly written one. This one grabbed me and kept me! Good pacing, mostly likeable characters and a mystery not revealed until the end. Hell yes I want to read book two! Good on ya guys. I'll keep watching for your titles!
Very interesting so far....
Well I just finished this first book (of 7!?!) and while the travel across the land felt a bit stretched out, the authors kept the story moving and the tension building. I look forward to learning more about the main character's manic drive to complete his mission and to why he step into the unknown at the end.
