Publisher's Summary

In the first novel in New York Times best-selling author Ian Douglas’ Solar Warden series, government conspiracy theories, UFO history, and thrilling space combat come together in an unforgettable interstellar military science fiction adventure. 

The Truth Has Always Been Here....

In the final days of World War II, the Allies ransacked Berlin. Third Reich scientists were highly sought-out prizes for Americans and Russians desperate to possess the Nazi knowledge of nuclear firepower. But they failed to capture one of the most vital members of Adolf Hitler’s inner circle: SS Obergruppenfuhrer Hans Kammler. One of the engineers of Auschwitz, Kammler was also a liaison with the Nazis’ silent partners whose technological wonders nearly helped the Axis win the war - the alien species the Germans called the Eidechse

More than seven decades later, US Navy SEAL Lieutenant Commander Mark Hunter has witnessed the impossible. On a mission in North Korea, an unidentified flying object destroyed a compound developing weapons of mass destruction. Now, he has been recruited to join a government agency that has been harboring a secret alliance with extraterrestrials since 1947. Selected to lead an elite force of soldiers, Hunter will travel across the stars to help humanity stake its claim among greater intelligent life in the universe. 

But the aliens who have infiltrated Earth and guided warmongering nations since the 20th century have their own agendas....

Great Hook

Love the hook, well researched well quoted. Mixing fact with fiction made it feel believable and grounded. However, after the hook was set, it drifts into standard military sci-fi - could be a recipe for wash and repeat - but there are infinite possibilities, so who knows! Excited to see where this story goes!

Ian Douglas found Fox Mulder's truth

This book was very well researched. One of the best alien books I've heard in a long time. There's many references and incorporations of widely accepted alien lore all well mixed with an awesome story and good narration.

Audible recommended it—I actually loved it!

Not familiar with the author’s other work, but this one sure didn’t disappoint. Grabbed it on a whim, trusting Audible’s recommendation. The story is unique and ties together modern special forces lore with alien theories and conspiracy theories. Great listen. Looking forward to the next book in the series!

The funnest Ian Douglas book I've ever read!

Ian Douglas usually writes hard science fiction. This book was delightful treat that unites all of the UFO conspiracy theories into one neat and believable narrative. I imagine he had a lot of fun writing thus novel. It is very out of character for an author that spins great stories out of eccentricities of physics.. to see his science oriented brain put to task knitting all the UFO lore (yes, apparently there is lore) into a serious story.. well.. it was a delight to read and I even think the narrator enjoyed it.

So bad it's terrible

This books I had high hopes for and I tend to love so bad it's good things... well this is so bad it's terrible. I wish I could get a refund credit this is so bad. Since I'm stuck with it I'm trying to force myself to finish it, but halfway in it's just a rehash of the most popular action packed youtube conspiracy theories on Aliens presented as if they are true .. which sure is coo it's repeats itself over and over and over again selling what tiny bits of source material exists for the intergalactic war. It doesn't help the narrator is lifeless and reads this in a droning voice, not that he has much to work with... I want to find something good to say, but yeah ... this is bad. If it were 99c I'd prolly give no krecks but yeah ... kinda feeling burnt here.
