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.

Interesting, a plot that moves quickly, with believable scenes and scenarios. Some of the internal dialogues are a bit wordy, but not impossible to appreciate. I will buy the next books in the series.
Warning: Don't start this book before bed!
There's nothing quite like losing yourself so completely in a bedtime read that, after a string of "oh, just one more chapter"s, you realize that the sun is coming up and you didn't even notice how tired you were because you were entirely absorbed. Aside from being one of the very few books a year I finished in one sitting, I know I'll be picking up Volume 2 up as soon as I can get it, and probably devour that in a red-eyed, adrenaline fueled all-nighter too.
If you like scifi, or character drama, or thrillers... hell, if you enjoy a good read at all, get this immediately.
Great story great pace
Title says it all. I was hooked from the start!
