Loved this book! I read it straight through! Good characters and not a rehash of usual invasion stories! I highly recommend this book.
I remember meeting a Canadian soldier at the airport as we were waiting for a shuttle bus, it was painful watching him walk and we struck up a conversation he had had 2 surgeries and was waiting on a 3rd so he could get back into the field. It’s this type of attitude that the heroes in this book display. Thank goodness we have ppl like them in fact as well as fiction.
At first I thought I wouldn’t like this book but it kept my interest and the raw emotion grabbed me and I needed to find out what was to occur. It was suspenseful and you had to keep reading. I won’t say why because you need to read it, but I definitely will continue to the next book in the series. Enjoy!
