The author's own review will suffice for a story summary. I enjoyed the story's pace, but must confess sometimes it was hard to know which protagonist was telling the story. The story line is your basic Science Fiction Aliens Invade Earth, but it has a surprise twist at the end, and also delves into "Survivalist" considerations. Is it the end for humanity? So, in that way it mimics the sub-genre. There is now a complete trilogy with this book being the first of three. Despite the not-always-clear switching between storytellers, I probably will read the second book of this trilogy if only to follow the "twist" and find out what happens. ( )

Received all 5 star reviews to date. Since I'm the author I don't feel at ease praising the book, but I really enjoyed writing it. Here's a brief summary:

Caution! Do Not Enter! The other side of the door might be hazardous to your health!

Starting in NYC, Declan travels through a wild linkage of disguised matter transporters to rescue a beautiful woman from aliens. Together, Dec and Liz, helped by a stray tom cat named Jefferson, try to puzzle out and disrupt the invasion plans of the hidden invaders. The aliens have enlisted the aid of members of the government and pose a deadly threat to humanity. To forestall them, the matter transporter network must be destroyed before all is lost.

Desperately fighting their way across the solar system with captured weapons, Dec and Liz discover that the aliens' power is based on a horrifying symbiosis that is the foundation of the alien's strength, but which also creates an exploitable vulnerability. As a result of being captured by the alien leader, both Declan and Elizabeth gain unique mental skills that may help save mankind from destruction. Unfortunately, the invasion plot is multi-pronged and the aliens have set up a devastating final attack that can destroy human society, forcing the survivors into a survival lifestyle.

This book stands by itself and does not leave you hanging in the heat of the action, but it is the first of a series. The next story, "Second Wave" will be complete by the end of 2014.

Update on Second Wave: First draft is nearly complete as of mid-December and will be completed prior to year's end. However, editing will delay the publishing date until probably February, 2015. ( )
