Publisher's summary

Cities were crushed by the falling spacecraft, but one ship didn't crash. It remained intact and disgorged hordes of alien soldiers determined to fight to the death. The abandoned vessels also contained a wealth of advanced technology.

Led by David Levinson, the greatest minds of our world developed deadly new hybrid weapons. Bases were built on the moon, Mars, and beyond. A new generation of defenders had to be trained, for the invaders would return.

In the headlong rush to prepare, however, not everyone would survive....

YA Romance

If I was to give the book a letter grade, it would be a B. It's above average, but not great. I got caught up in the love life of the main characters and grew to like them, even though they were cliché. Matter of fact several of the characters had the same personality. I was disappointed that almost nothing happened with the aliens. This is a prequel, so I knew they could not invade. They had some survivors in Africa, but they were all killed off with machetes. Young people are going to go to the movie, so it fits that the book would be YA.

ID4 "Crucible"

Wow! Very cool tie in between the two movies. I think it's a must read before you see the movie. If you liked the fist movie that is. It will make sense and will tie up any lose ends. Very well done, to me anyway.
It should go for an anime work up, that would be cool.

Excellent Performance -- boring story

I have to admit that the performance was refreshing, realistic and enjoyable.... however, nothing happens in this story ... I felt like I was in a chick flick!

Wildly entertaining

This book is a must listen to any and all Independence day fans. It successfully and wonderfully bridges the gap between the first movie and second and leaves you with just the right amount of questions to make you excited for the sequel. Well done by all

Loved it!

As close to a real sequel to the original film as could be hoped for. Have tons of characterization and weight to events in both films

This book sucked

What a waste of time. Nothing happens. It’s just a filler. Not worth it. Even worse than the new movie.

Boring!

This segment of the Independence Day series is boring...no war between aliens and humans, just a clean up of the world after the aliens attacked the world. The author tried to bring a romantic story into the overall book, but it just didn't fit.

Required listening before seeing Resurgence.

I'm really glad I took the time to listen to this book before watching Resurgence. It gives you an introduction to the younger characters and well as a refresher on the characters we already knew and loved. The characters are likable and the stories flow at an even pace. I think if more people would have read this prior, they would have liked the movie a lot more than they did.
