Publisher's Summary

Jacob is a soldier in a war against a new type of enemy. Trained in the basics of ground combat and tossed a weapon, he is now on the front lines of the global conflict. He must face the Delta Horde or risk his family's eviction to the refugee camps. Inexperienced, Jacob discovers he has something far more valuable than weapons and armor: his fellow soldiers at his side. As a team they struggle to survive battles and an enemy that would ruin a man standing against them alone. Only together can they find a way to end the reign of The Darkness.

This is a novel of horror, courage, and resiliency in the face of an unspeakable enemy.

When they discovered how to combat the Deltas

Which scene was your favorite?

When they found the dog! Small and insignificant but unexpected - Just stuck out in my mind.

Another great one from WJ Lundy

Great story and performance. Can't wait for the next chapter. The ending cliff hanger leaves you wanting more.

Keeps you hooked

W. J. Lundy has done a great job hooking us into the second book of The Invasion Trilogy. It feels like the whole story is one big, crazy adventure. Our main character, Jacob, has to step up and fight the Darkness in order to keep his family safe. While he’s learning how to be a soldier in real time, his unit is deployed on a seemingly impossible mission. The suspense, action and mystery surrounding the Darkness combine in this post-Apocalyptic series where the characters’ fight is strong, but not even strength can keep them all alive.

Kevin T. Collins does a great job narrating this book. I don’t know why some people criticized his performance of the last book, because to me, he doesn’t over enunciate nor is he overly dramatic. I feel his pacing is good, the emotions behind the dialogue is realistic and the switching between dialogue and narration is seamless. Give this series a chance, because it will suck you right in!

Much better!

The second book of the three was much better. There was more character development in this one.
