In Colonization, the final volume of this Omnibus, we're back with Meyer, who is really a great character. He's solidly on the side of the aliens, and we get to spend a lot more time with the aliens that in either of the previous two volumes. We learn of at least 2 different kinds of aliens (and a rumored third kind that don't actually appear) as Meyer leads a human society under the alien's thumbs and rebel humans do what they can to pester the alien presence on their land. The action in this 3rd volume is back on the order of the first book, so you will tear right through it. At the end, you get to learn what is more important to Meyer: his place at the head of the human colony on our own planet under the thumb of the aliens...or his family. Plus, if it wasn't totally obvious in the first two books...Raj is a complete ******. Do be warned, though...once the story ends, the epilogue at the end of volume 3 has a great hook that will get you impatiently waiting for Volume 4.

This is a very interesting series. After the first two books I can say that I can't wait to read the next one. The characters are great and the action really cool. If you like SF, this is a must read.

I'm in the third book now. It's as exciting and creative as the first two books. I recommend the whole series. Well written. Not your typical sci-fi. Well developed characters, and lots of twists and turns.

Ok, so out of the blue we jump ahead two years! Things have changed greatly around the little house on the hill in Veil, Colorado. As you’ll recall, Piper had just came back and was calling out her family and associates from the underground bunker. She did that to save their lives, I guess, because the aliens then blasted a big hole in the earth where the house and bunker used to be. I believe that’s the way it went, but since we weren’t there and the story doesn’t say what happened after that, we’ll just have to fill in the blanks. Apparently, Meyer Dempsey is also back. He’s now “in-charge” of humanity via some unknown ability to communicate directly (or indirectly) with the aliens. Oh, yeah, they are now called the “Astrals”. There are at least three classes of Astrals, the Divinity who never, ever leave the ship and they usually are the ones thinking to Meyer, the Titans who are huge, powerfully built pacifist, and the Reptars who just tear people to pieces, but are otherwise known as the Peacekeepers! Meyer Dempsey and his family including Raj, Christopher, and Terrance now live in a huge compound from which he directs humanity to do what the Astrals want or else! The “else” part means you die if you don’t do what you’re told. Other than that, humanity can get back to the business of living and dying naturally if they want. So, the Dempsey’s and anyone living in the Heaven’s Veil are considered collaborators with Earths conquerors and are targets of the small, but growing resistance movement. Heaven’s Veil is under attack on many occasions, but the rebels are usually ineffective against the Astrals and are usually dead right after a failed attack. The Astrals are looking for something on or in the earth and they don’t understand what has happened to humanity since their last visit. The Astrals are a group-think species. They all share the same thoughts, feelings, emotions and other such stuff. Humanity of old, when religion was strong and made everyone believe the same things almost made humans very much like the Astrals. Not any more! They have found humans to be much more individualistic and that they don’t understand. Well, this is all pretty weird and kind of hard to understand. I don’t understand how Meyer Dempsey can get things done when there isn’t much of a dialogue with the aliens at any point in this book. And, he doesn’t actually do anything in this part of the story. He’s just there as the Viceroy for the aliens and everyone else seems to be afraid of him and the aliens but they don’t do much in this story either. In fact, there isn’t much of anything really going on in this story. We do meet the leader of the Outlands, Nathan Andreus. He’s supposed to be a bad guy, but he doesn’t actually do anything bad in this book. He actually gets involved in helping everyone out at the end. At the end of the book it gets kind of exciting when we find out the true nature of the Titans, but that part goes by pretty quickly and then we’re wondering what’s next. Oh, yeah, Meyer Dempsey gets killed. I think; not sure about that. Good book but not sure why it was called “Colonization”?

Just funished this book. Can't wait for the fourth in the series to be available. Had to read the first few pages of the last chapter twice to figure out what was happening.

This book was so disappointing! Loved the first two and pre-ordered this one, I could not wait to read it. Only got about 1/2 way through the book and finally gave up. Where are all the great character that were developed in the first two books? Very Disappointing!

More terror, more surprises. COLONIZATION kept me wanting more.  Review COLONIZATION, the third entry in the Invasion series by Platt and Truant, is an exciting ride. Like INVASION and CONTACT, COLONIZATION continues to surprise. The landscape is becoming more alien, the aliens are more terrifying and human alliances are more capricious. The book shifts direction again. Every chapter leaves you guessing and gasping for air. Like their other books, COLONIZATION explores big ideas from not-so-obvious perspectives. The science is presented at just the right level of detail, supporting, rather than overwhelming the story. Because, in the long run, that is what Platt and Truant deliver, a great story with impeccably-drawn characters, descriptions that pull you into their world and a serious threat. What more could you want?

Amazing continuation of the trilogy! This book is where the fighting and alien action really take off.
