Book Description

Shaken by the crash landing of an alien vessel in the Pacific Ocean, humanity soon becomes embroiled in an ancient conflict that spans all of time and space. As a massive invasion force systematically dismantles the solar system and gathers Earth's survivors for harvest, a human resistance group from the future struggles to ensure a swift and final end to the conflict. Enemy is a story of war and the lives that it tears apart in its wake.

The winner of the 2002 Booksurge Editor's Choice award, Enemy is the first book in the Silver trilogy by Paul Evan Hughes.

One of the best scifi books I've read in years... This kid will churn out many more like this. -- Jeff Schwaner, Editor, December, 2000.

The story was artfully woven and detailed--interesting in its precision and touching of deep-seated human emotion. -- Sharon Stanhope, February 2001.

4.0 out of 5 stars A boy, a girl, the end of the world January 12, 2004
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Isn't that how it always is? A boy and a girl at the end of the world. Hughes writes an emotionally gripping novel placed in a place out of space and time. With a twist around every corner, the basic story that runs true throughout. The Enemy and the Judas take you through a wonderfully woven tale.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mind-bending May 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's a lengthy and occasionally brilliant story that bent my mind a lot. I finally figured it out towards the end, but all the different "conversations" going on at the same time really really confused me. Disorienting. The twist at the end finally made it all make sense.

4.0 out of 5 stars WOW and RECOMMENDED May 22, 2012
Format:Paperback
This is the most fascinating book I've ever read. NOT easy, but fascinating. Liquid time, past and future travel. Guy meets/falls in love with gal multiple times, in multiple places, in multiple physical forms. People as computer files. Spirits/demons. Heaven/hell. Alpha/Omega. Alternities. What kind of a mind is this? I feel like Spock, seeing an illogical something for the first time: FASCINATING. Having devoured it once, I will now start again, and read it at a more leisurely pace . . . . The only reason I gave 4, not 5, stars was my confusion at the start, before I understood the cyclic form of time. So, will I be rereading this book, or starting it for the first time in another cycle? Superbly cool.

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging Whens May 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book encompasses a wide range of characters, and the author makes me care about even the AI beings, who merely puzzle me at first. With all the Biblical allusions, he has a nice twist, making the Judas vessels the good guys. I am left unsure as to whether the alt-when's are Real or merely possibilities that don't ever fully develop, but at least, the baddies lose in the end.

I wish the author had not tried to expand this story into a trilogy. While I enjoyed this first book, the increasing problems of the follow-ups drained this story of many of its strengths. What seems a happy ending turns into only another alt-when, which cheapens its apparent victory. Now I wonder if this writer considers anything ultimately real or knowable. I don't mind philosophizing, but I do hold to the maxim that unlike real life, fiction ought to make sense. When sense breaks down, I feel betrayed.

I recommend Enemy as a thriller and a Good read. At the same time, I also recommend that most readers ignore the rest of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read... but a bit too close to being the Matrix February 28, 2014
By SeanD
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great story but it edges a bit too close to using The Matrix's plot line at time -- which doesn't make it bad... Just less original.
