This book kind of freaked me out. Not in a bad way, but in the fact that this is fairly realistic. I mean the description of these horrific events is pretty believable, and have occurred, elsewhere, in much smaller instances, but still it's kinda scary. The story in this book follows many different people around and sometimes the transition is just from paragraph to paragraph. Honestly, it took sometime getting used to this type of multiple points of view, the transitions were just abrupt. The writing was easy to follow and the story was captivating, up to a point. I'm not sure exactly where in the book, but at some point we just lost some steam and the ending felt rushed. I understand this is supposed to be a prequel to a book publish last year, but I haven't read that one. I really enjoyed the story, and the characters, and I would have LOVED the book if there weren't so many typos and errors throughout the book. They were numerous and distracting so I wasn't able to enjoy the story as much as I should have. I think this author is talented, and writes well enough that I get freaked out, but the books just needed some serious polishing.

There has been an amazing amount of self-publish or assisted self-published novels in the last few years. On a positive note this has opened up the clubby industry of publishing to many more budding authors. On a practical note this activity has demonstrated why the traditional publishing industry exists: editing; coaching; massaging; fact-checking; and being blunt with authors. Druga's homage to Red Dawn would have benefited from an all encompassing review for plot, character development, pace, editing, grammar, spelling. If so, It may have been steered to the young adult audience and tightened up considerably into a novella.

This book has an interesting plot, but I may not force my way through it because of its terrible, or non-existent, editing. It seems as if the writer is using less-than-perfect voice-to-text software with which she simply speaks the story and then fails to review the final result. Two recent examples: "pulling" for "pooling" and "Stanton Island" for "Staten Island." Pay an editor!

So many people are reading apocalyptic fiction these days that I'm beginning to believe there may be something to the 'Collective Soul' concept I read about in college. Millions of people seem to be drawn to the topic, and I sometimes wonder, if at some unconscious level, we all sense that our modern way of life is headed for a bad ending. Ms. Druga has once again tapped into our sense of approaching disaster and presented a scenario in which war comes to American ground. As usual, her characters are real people that we find ourselves caring about, hoping that they somehow find a way to overcome the odds against them and manage create a life for themselves in the world that remains. Time after time in 'Then Came War' we are presented with situations that are difficult to believe could happen in our country, but the reality is that they could, and have (9-11, Civil War) happened here before. When the weapons of modern warfare are unleashed upon the residents of the world's most comfortable and advanced nation the reults are heart-breaking and catastrophic, but at the same time American heroes rise up to confront the unthinkable. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is concerned about where our country is headed, and what could happen to our way of life if we don't remain vigilant and committed to protecting it.

I write in the same area and in doing so started reading Jackie Druga's books. She has an amazing imagination as to what "might" happen - if there is an unexpected disaster, an unexpected invasion, and the various unexpected things that we don't devote any time to thinking about. But as important as that is, she entertains by creating characters that are so involving you have to keep reading to see what happens to them. In this book I was particularly taken by her character Abby, who has lost everyone and wants to die - but no matter what happens she keeps on surviving. And there is the couple who are getting a divorce after 20+ years of marriage who are now in the middle of an invasion of the United States. She adds a young child, an eighty year old veteran, and a homeless 16 year old who all view the events of this novel from their perspective. Jackie is a good writer who is moving up in the ranks of recognition. Read this book, think, enjoy.

I liked the book and even though I have often felt irritated at the "grammar-police", I have to admit that it was a big deal for me this time with this book. It was ridiculous all the errors. They take away the flow of a story! The book itself was ok...Fast paced...and surprising what the author did with all the characters. The very, Very end was dumb and not needed. In fact I began to wonder if I was reading an excerpt into a new book Druga was writing...all in all, not one of her best and 3 stars.

A topic like this, there should've been another 300-400 pages of material... much more attention to detail, character and plot should pug into this book.
This reminds me of the work one would see from a freshman literature major in college...
Any future writings by Ms Druga just fell off my radar.
