The Light is the thrilling end to The Invasion Trilogy from the best-selling author of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
When the world ends, will there be anyone left to bury the dead?
Peace isn't the way we thought it would be. The planet hangs on the brink of collapse, with only pockets of resistance remaining. While governments fold and submit in the wake of a new enemy, civilians are rounded up and assimilated into new communities.
With the little that remains, Jacob knows that they must make a stand and let the world know that we will not lie down quietly. Those who are willing to take up the fight. They see that now is a time for heroes...a last chance to stand up against the invaders.

Although I look forward to a continuation of the series if it ended with this book the author did a great job wrapping it up. I am always kept on the edge of my seat with this series and that is something I rarely find in a book.
Sometimes I think about what it would be like if this happened in real life, and I think the author hit the nail right on the head with this series. Great job!
Overall the performance was good, the narrator kept the same voices for the characters in sync and audibly identifiable; which I find is rare. So overall, a good job.
Don't look away!
The narration to a little getting used to, but the narrator grew on me by the middle of the second book. I did notice some background noise that sounded like a PC alert a couple of times on the second book, but hey, that's ok.
The chemical, dioxin, believed to be fatal to the invaders worked wonders. Delivered as an aerosol it blinded them, drove them mad, and ultimately killed them. This information and the remaining supply of dioxin were delivered to the current headquarters where it was used to great effect. This unexpected development was no doubt a shock to the invaders. It appears this also accelerated the invaders time table by a new group of leaders to light who take direct control of the lesser invaders referred to as Deltas, advancing their plans by eliminating the human men and kidnapping the women and children for their needs at colonization. Jacob’s wife and daughter are rounded up with many others. Now Jacob and crew need to find out where the captives are being held and rescue them. This is a great story with wonderful well-developed characters. There is much going on with the invaders that I do not wish to spoil. Read or listen to the series, you will not be disappointed.
