    This book is incredible. I read it before realizing is was book 2 of 4 in the series, but it didn`t matter. The author does such a superb job of recapping what happened in A Hymn Before Battle (which I read later), I couldn`t tell I was missing anything. This book is gripping for two reasons, first, it takes place in the present, and second, the war is taking place on American soil. It is easy to picture today`s army fighting on American soil. I found the first 150 pages to be a little slow, but once the Posleen land, this book is insane. I couldn`t put it down. I highly recommend it to all who like action and SF, reading A Hymn Before isn`t required.

    I got this book the day that it came out on the first of April, I had read it completely by Monday and started over again on the same day. If you have read the first book in this series, 'A Hymn before Battle' then I would heavily recommend this one. It is the continuation of the Michael O'Neal saga and what the heck happens to Earth after we learn that there are other people out there in the big dark. As the prelude to the books say, we can be Cannon Fodder or we can be¿ Fodder, also known as food. Oddly enough we decide that anybody that's going to try to eat us may get away with it but he's going home with one frick'in eye! The bad guys may be dumb, but there is one heck of a lot of them, and they do take one heck of a lot of killing to make them go away. I have always been a big military SCI fi reader and this has got some really good stuff. One of the only things that many readers who are not used to the more military type of writing will have any trouble with is that some of the things that anybody in or has been in the military will instantly get is some of the acronyms and such. It is not a big deal at all, but some explanations occasionally would have been helpful for some readers. I don't want to give anything way, so I would simply say that if you like the military, hard core SCI Fi type of fiction, you will really enjoy this one! Can't wait for the next book.
