They have come for our most important resource...
The year is 2061, and the planet is dying. Cataclysmic solar storms have forced leaders from around the world to finally put aside their differences and agree on one thing - to jump ship. The human race is headed to Mars.
Dr. Sophie Winston is hired by New Tech Corporation to test a biosphere deep within the heart of Cheyenne Mountain; a mission she believes will help prepare NTC for the three-year flight to the red planet. But, just days into the assignment, things start to go wrong. When the blast doors hiss open, Winston's team finds a changed world outside. Humans are gone, vanished without a trace, and they aren't the only thing missing. The planet's water is gone, too.
As the team explores their surroundings, they find thousands of luminous blue orbs lining the streets. It isn't until they uncover what's inside that they realize the nightmare that lies ahead.

Yes, anyone looking for a fast-paced alien invasion would enjoy this book.
Overton: he's the tough military commander who insures there will be more alien vs. machine gun action!
She did Sophie really well.
I listened to it while driving to college this past summer.
Original. Creative. Terrifying.
Character development is a huge thing for me. Feeling connected to the characters can make or break a story and this definitely delivers. I am looking forward to more!
Elizabeth brought to life the words on the page. I loved her adaptation of the words from the pages.
"Good idea, ruined by cliched characters"
I doubt many people will rave about this. Its a perfectly reasonable story and a good concept.
The characters we terribly clichéd, from the scar-faced tough talking marine, and the insecure annoying IT geek, to the lead female who couldn't seem to decide of she was a tough professional women or a screaming wet lettuce incapable of making decisions. Don't get me started on the AI! All she seemed used for was a forced narration of events for people who seemed to have short term memory loss and couldn't remember the last few pages.
Appropriate, clear, solid
The AI should have had a purpose, it didn't, either remove it or actually have it serving a purpose that supports the story. Ditch the entire love interest element as it didn't work, it fogged the readers understanding of her motives and background. The IT guy! Why was he in the story? What did he do? Delete him
The concept was good, the science was good, I liked the overall ideas and arc of the story, but as with all good stories you need to be able to suspend belief and get rolled along with the story. All too often I was brought crashing back out of the story by some jarring character cliché.
