Publisher's Summary

Dominic Moretti was dealing with a lot of issues. Life hadn’t been easy since returning home from Afghanistan. His marriage was on the rocks, his sports betting was out of control, and he was hanging out with the wrong cronies in Manhattan’s Little Italy - just another war hero who couldn’t piece his life back together in the real world. Also, there was that strange, annoying feeling that he was being watched....

Humankind was indeed being evaluated, by the highly advanced Khantam Lom, an alien species in control of much of the galaxy. Did this selfish, war-mongering, human race warrant protection from the soon-to be-invading Wikk Empire? An insectile species with insatiable appetites, the Wikk were hell-bent on subjugating Earth as one of their many farming settlements.

So the adventure begins. Dominic inadvertently saves the life of a Khantam Lom Observer, and everything changes. Humankind has but one - seeming impossible - shot at avoiding a catastrophic fate. Dominic won’t be able to do it alone, but will the ragtag team he’s assembled be enough? Will any of them survive long enough to make a difference?

Different and enjoyable story concept

I enjoyed this story, but didn't care for the introspection during critical moments, nor the lack of focus during battles while the hero is thinking about a woman's beauty, so not going to happen during a battle! 😊

Should have been titled New York Italian monsters defend earth

Make that “not very smart” Italian mobsters. But if you really like New York Italian mobsters then you might like this book. I didn’t.

Just not good enough

Not good, story was thin and with characters without any personality everyone felt like they where scripted characters.

Stupid getting stupider

The purple hart ,silver star veteran befriend an alien, and goes to war. From that moment he gets dumber and starts making more errors off judgement putting himself and humankind’s future in jeopardy. The writer sets the hero in one after the next most brilliant trap that could have been avoided by a D&D player after 5 seconds of thinking. It’s so frustrating I had to leave the book for days and only restart after I had forgot about the frustration.

Really interesting!

Before getting into the book it was a little off what I usually go for so I wasn’t expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. Give it a shot, it’s pretty good.
