Publisher Description

Something has traveled for a billion years to find us - and now it has.

In space, Commander Mitch Granger and his crew are nearing the end of their scientific mission - along with their covert satellite photography for the military. As they prepare for reentry, an unknown object emerges from the void; the name given to deep, dark space.

The object proves impossible to evade. The crew have one option left - to bring the fragment aboard.

Immediately, all contact with the shuttle is lost.

NASA watches helplessly as their craft breaks orbit and heads back to Earth where it crashes high up in the Revelation Mountains of Alaska.

The space agency puts together an emergency recovery team, but the Russians also want the US military photographic data onboard. The race is on to be the first to the crash site, nearly 10,000 feet up in one of the most inhospitable places on Earth. But there is another problem. Satellite images show that something else came down in the shuttle, something moving about when no one should be alive. And that seems to be growing at an alarming rate.

NASA needs help, and protection. Send in the HAWCs. But even HAWC captain Alex Hunter, the last super-soldier of the Arcadian program, has never come up against a threat so old, and from so far...

Typical Alex Hunter Novel

These novels are all action packed. But, each subsequent novel is now falling into a pattern of bad guys/monsters are just as powerful and clever as Alex, so what’s the point of his being a super soldier? To win he must always allow his hidden berserker mode kick in for a bit to get enough edge to win the day. Might as well have two milk toast soldiers squaring off.

It has been an enjoyable series, but each subsequent novel has just gotten a little too formulaic to be a better read than the last.
