The story follows a female soldier in the Middle East and her husband and daughter at home in the US as they cope with the disaster. For an alien-invasion-type story, it takes quite a while for the invaders to actually show up and for their evil plans to become apparent. And then, if you’re like me, you’ll have some difficulty suspending disbelief.
The writing is good enough to make this very readable, though information heavy. Those who love military jargon and weapon specifications should find something to enjoy here. Otherwise, it is an enjoyable read if you aren’t expecting too much.
