Good thing I have insomnia...
...because I've read the first four books in the past week and I can't get over how much I'm enjoying them. Sci-fi if the spaceship kind usually isn't my thing, but I love a good end of the world as we know it story, and as a big history buff, ancient alien theories are a guilty pleasure. Well written, clever dialogue - being inside Heather's head is a joy and something I'm going to miss - and just enough new information siphoned to you at the right moments to keep you guessing. I got the first two books for free and bought the third and fourth, which is something I never do cause I'm a starving artist type myself and need Ramen, not books, but I'm buying the fifth one as soon as I'm done with this review. And I'm done.
Heres the deal guys,I’m one of those readers who love to discover new gems by reading the free downloads and if I get hookeddon’t mind paying for the sequels. Usually they tend to fall in the $2 to $4 dollar range. Not you guys! when I first read the first Invasion series book I was hooked. You guys have a great writing style and I thought these will be writers to follow and enjoy.But by book four the dew was off the lily.
By now I have realized you guys are working a style of formula writing I will call the “one step forward two steps back”approach.With each chapter or so we are subjected to having the same material we have already read spoon fed us again within the musings of the different characters. A little of this is expected but WOW! you guys are masters.
Why would you do this ?
Why to stretch your one book into many of course and charging a rather hefty price at $4.99
which in the digital age is bit of overkill.
As much as I have enjoyed this series, when it is finished then so am I.
I’m seventy one and due to the time constraints that entails, I just want to move along a little faster with the stories I decide to take bites out of my life with.
More is not always better guys!
This book was even better than the last! It is so filled with action, just like an action film. I don't know if it is possible to make a film about these books but, Realm& Sands could actually make a television picture limited series from these books. I would love to watch it. 👍 Thanks very much to the writers who took so much of their time to write this!
More now please!
Another amazing page turner. I'm ready for the next!!!

Really? You need seven books to tell this story?
Captivating, emotional installment from these great authors!
I love this series. It's complex, interesting, and always keeps you guessing (you will usually be wrong, which is awesome) with enough along the way to explain things satisfactorily while raising even more interesting questions. Can't wait for the next book!
EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ!!
I also received an advanced copy. And I can't say I could have enjoy the book more. I truly couldn't put it down and if it wasn't for some unfortunate events in my life I would have attempted to finish it all in the day I got it!!!
Fourth book in the series and still going strong!

I received a review copy of this book, but it didn't influence my review. If I didn't like the book, I either wouldn't waste time reviewing it or I'd give it a bad review.
That's not the case with the fourth installment of this series. It starts off a little slower than book three, but once it gets going, it's great. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but I'll just say that this is the second best book in the series (the third book was my favorite). If you liked the first three, you won't be disappointed with this one.

One of the most anticipated sequels in recent memory, this forth installment of the Invasion series has it all - mystery, love-to-love characters and love-to-hate characters, enigmatic alien invaders, and even a surprise or two. Platt and Truant are masters at taking you inside the characters, bringing them to life. The tempo and tactical deception is more than suficient motivation to keep you turning pages every spare moment. But most of all, I really just want to reach into the page and smack Raj for the tool he is. Of course, now the wait begins anew for books 5 and 6. This series is a must read, a little bit sic-fi, western, mystery, and action/adventure. Just read it!
