Overview

Earth’s been invaded, but nobody knows it. Invaded by biofabs—the Scotar—a diabolically crafted life form dedicated to turning mankind into either supper or shuffling brainwipes.

Cold and miserable on old Cape Cod, ex-CIA officer John Harrison and his lovely, handle-with-care Israeli partner Zahava stumble upon a Scotar nest. Going down before a wave of alien warriors, the pair is saved, flitted to the deck of the battle cruiser Implacable. But even with that ancient, mighty starship at its side, Earth’s survival hangs in the balance as Scotar reinforcements pour in and the fighting rages.

And then there are the mindslaves.

About the Author
Stephen Ames Berry’s novels have been published by Ace/Berkley and Tor/Macmillan. His latest novel is the technothriller The Eldridge Conspiracy.

The Biofab War is the first of four novels that begin with a covert alien attempt to control Earth and end with the battered forces of galactic humanity battling hopeless odds as an AI armada sweeps in. (AIs--Artificial Intelligences--cyborgs evolved over vast time from simple machines to complex beings driven by the simple need to kill us all.)

The books follow the crew of the Kronarin Fleet battleship Implacable and their Terran allies, from the discovery of biofabs on Earth through ever-growing confrontations and nefarious alien machinations to the final battle. The plot line’s akin to a nesting doll, each crisis revealing an even deadlier one. The blaster fire never stops--save for the occasional soothing cup of t'ata from Implacable's dodgy beveragers. (Implacable's a resurrected Imperial warship that sometimes chaffs at having been roused and pressed into the service of such rude hands.)

To be bested along the way are space pirates, mindslavers, various machine intelligences, a vile alternate Earth, the undying hand of the dead Kronarin Empire, a ubiquitous insectoid-blonde and, of course, biofabs. All stirred into a rich bouillabaisse of an adventure that takes the reader on a far flung quest into the fantastic, but where in the end the old verities of valor and friendship trump all.

    Good concept. I liked the "aliens" coming to the far out on the rim Terra system.

    Some of the characters kinda blended together, especially the Kronians. They were not distinct enough to keep track of one from the other.

    Still a good read.
