A few survivors are still fighting for their survival. They are out numbered and possess vastly inferior technology. Some escape the earth and go to Mars but they find it an alien strong hold. The few humans left on Earth fight for every bite of food and water as for their lives.
Human existence and civilization is on the edge of being wiped out as if they never existed. Can they survive or should they surrender to the inevitable wrath of the invaders and their multi-dimensional alien masters……
This book to me was amazing as the intensity of the action just continued to build, even to the last page. Nicholas Smith has a way with words that make every one of his books exciting and a great read. This book is entertaining. The characters of people that you would like to know and fight for in their battle.
I recommend this book as it is a good one if you like Sci-Fi stories.
The authors vividly describe the miserable conditions of earth with its water removed by hostile aliens and also give a highly credible depiction of Mars as the action moves there from earth.
As a retired Army officer, I appreciated the pronouncement of an ancient truism by Corporal Bouma, “But you didn’t go to war with the army you wanted - or in this case, squad. You went to war with the one you had.” This statement is a paraphrase of a 2004 comment by then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, “You go to war with the Army you have, not the Army you might want or wish to have...”
Another memorable scene involved Dr. Sophie Winston who, when facing overwhelmingly odds, recalled her father’s favorite poem by Dylan Thomas, “Do not go gentle into that good night...Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
Although I was saddened by the loss of several of my favorite characters, I was gratified that the series came to an appropriate and plausible ending.
Back on Earth, the Cheyenne Mountain AI, Alexis, is directing the defense of the survivors aboard the grounded NTC submarine Ghost of Atlantis and isolated survivors struggling against the Organics. Using an overlooked satellite, LOLO, Alexis monitored the progress of the Organic assault. With only twenty percent of the ocean water remaining, little time remained for the Earth.
Captured during Operation Redemption, Captain Rick Noble was held in a blue orb aboard a huge Organic spacecraft with thousands of other aliens held in identical orbs. Noble was naked with a tube connecting through his abdomen to supply him with enough nourishment to stay alive. His situation appears hopeless.
This collaboration between two master storytellers is long awaited. The characters have been familiar through the first three books. Like family, we've gotten close to Sophie and Emanuel and the other survivors of the Biosphere, and their struggles have enticed us mercilessly. The storyline is continued with a twist or two, a few chuckles, but mostly a breathtaking fight for survival on two planets. The action is a fast-paced, exciting thrill ride, intense, surprise filled! Don't miss this read, it's great!
You owe it to yourself to read Orbs IV. A dramatic conclusion to a series? Maybe.
I was so excited to hear Nicholas Sansbury Smith was teaming up with another favorite author of mine to write a book 4 and give us the ending he wanted! Anthony Melchiorri brings real life science to everything he writes and I knew this story was one I had to read.
Let me say, they do not disappoint. From page one this grabs you and pulls you right back into that world. There are plenty of twists and turns and edge of your seat action. You see no way for a good end for us, no way that anything can work out, but you also can’t stop reading!
Is it a happy ending? Does it leave you hanging? I’m not saying. I am going to say it’s a must read story that gives you an ending that works and feels right. It’s a story that any fan of the genre will enjoy from beginning to end and wish would just keep going. I’ll also say I’d love to see these two team up again to make a series from start to finish, cause they make a great team.
