Here at last is the eagerly awaited fourth book in David Gerrold's classic and gripping series of alien domination - the story of humanity's courageous struggle for survival against the greatest threat Earth has ever known.
As the tenacious invaders remake Earth's violated surface, transforming its flora and fauna into a replica of their own terrifying home world, a handful of scientists, soldiers, and citizens prepare to fight back - hoping it isn't already too late. In Mexico, a dead Chtorr leads to a stunning discovery about the aliens. At the same time, a military-scientific expedition deep into the heart of the Brazilian jungle uncovers another surprise: a massive hivelike city where the aliens have embarked on the next step in their remorseless campaign to transform humanity.

The narrative voice of the C'Torr series changes through the 4 existing books... but this one is the most focused of the 4 so far out. Gerrold has a nice balance of talking about the biology of the world he's imagined, and furthering the plot in that "opera of disaster" milieu.
Pruden continues to deliver a solid, well paced narrative, and works a wider range of voices.
Well worth a listen.
A lot of needed world building which will be totally wasted without the next book. The sexual threads may have been bold in 1900 but have not aged well in this re-read..... You might get this reference. .. David Gerrold writes like Peter Max paints.
