“An intriguing look at the end of the world.” —Booklist
“Mari has written a smart and fascinating tale about a postapocalyptic society, built upon the juxtaposition of religious history and an advanced civilization.” —Library Journal
“One of the comforting aspects of reading genre fiction is that you often have a decent sense of how the book is going to end. Not in The Beachhead. But in Mari's hands, this unpredictability is a refreshing experience…” —Adrian Liang, Amazon Book Review

While parts of the book were a bit repetitive and moved slowly, overall this was a good read. Please note: I am Jewish, not Christian.. which means I follow Old Testament, not new. Yes, there were many references to the book of revelations...yes I know what that is, but I've never read it. No, I don't go for religious reads... but this story could be understood and enjoyed, nonetheless. If you substitute 'predictions from the time before the event' for 'book of revelations', you would end up with a similar novel.. there would be only a few changes to make.
This was an interesting combination of end-of-the-world, with aliens, with crafting a new society after everything collapses.
Personally, I can see this as a movie in the near future.
The "orangemen" kind of spooked me out - but that's part of the fun.
