The title of this book put me off a bit, but I started it anyway. Just as well. It is a good read with a decent plot and interesting characters. ( )

A cut above the usual military sc fi. A little slow in parts, but read with the idea that it was new and a little more oringinal almost 20 years ago it's not a bad read.
Earth space is invaded by a species they call the Waisters (due to the fact that they come from a star system in Orion's waist). They are very powerful and seem to be unstoppable.
They waisters set them selves up in aggressive groups containing six individuals. Containing a queen workers, drones and one they refer to as a dog (only one brain). The Earth army need to find out how to fight, and or defeat them or to figure out why they fight. That is the source of the group Known as Aggressor Six. They set themselves up to try and think and act as Waisters to find answers to these questions. The army doesn't like the answer. ( )

Riveting, dark alien encounter war novel that explores Man and individuals adjust to survive when the goal is just that: Survival. No superheroes. No Superscientists. No Super Ships or Super weapons. Desperation, Terror, annihilation and the courage that comes from bladder-emptying fear. ( )
