Publisher's Summary

They came in their thousands. We fought them as one. It started during a winter storm on the North Eastern Seaboard which brought with it a strange green rain. Where it fell, everything withered, died, and was consumed. The residents of remote outposts in Maritime Canada escaped the worst of the early damage, but that was a blessing in disguise, for they were left to watch as first North America, then the world, was subsumed in the creeping green carpet of terror. And that was just the beginning.

Martians in the Maritimes

What did you like best about The Invasion? What did you like least?

Throughout the story, I found the fast, relentless pace and the escalating action and suspense to be handled quite well. On the other hand, I would have loved to have seen some stronger focus on the main characters, as that would have drawn me in to rooting for their survival with a little more gusto.

Would you be willing to try another book from William Meikle? Why or why not?

I have more than a couple of Meikle's books downloaded to my Kindle, so sufficed to say that I will definitely be reading more of his work in time.

What about Mikael Naramore’s performance did you like?

Naramore's narration may have been the brightest star in this book's constellation. Great delivery, and a slightly ominous tone throughout helped a lot to carry the story forward.

Could you see The Invasion being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

SyFy should gobble this one up, as it would beat out 90% of the movies they've aired.

Classic sci-fi

If you’d asked me last year whether I preferred modern or classic sci-fi I would have said modern. A lot of the classics are too bogged down in social commentary for me. Recently though I’ve discovered a whole series of less known, often shorter works that just hit the spot. This is one of them. Aliens invade. A crew of soldiers, available civilians and scientists band together to save the world. Sounds familiar: but here’s the thing: no one happens to fall in love, heroes die, and vindication takes time. Was upset to lose the characters that didn’t make it. Great action combined with true humanity. The narration is top notch on this one too! I received this audiobook for free in exchange for a fair review.
