I am working on it, though! I read "Resistance: A Hole in the Sky" By William C. Dietz (2011). He read it before summer. One of the many things I love about this trade is being reminded of what good taste he has in books. "Resistance: A Hole in the Sky" is a solid four star read.
Fifty pages into the book I had to remind myself that this wasn't even one of my many "normal" genres. It is a prequel to the Playstation 3 videogame Resistance 3.
Aliens have invaded North America. One man, Joe Capelli, is still fighting the good fight. He's trying to keep the last of the humans from being turned into aliens. He's a good guy facing a serious loss of credibility. You see, he saw a superior officer becoming an alien and took action. The problem is no one else noticed, so he was considered a traitor and ejected from the Army.
Capelli has a great sidekick named Rowdy. Rowdy isn't any particular breed of dog. He's a loyal fighter and an excellent companion. Together they face the travails of scratching out an existence, doling out justice to human and alien baddies, fall in love with a beautiful woman who is as tough as they are, and live to fight another day.
The world has a chance with the Capelli's on our side. Watch out, Chimeras.
In Deep Home, Colorado, Alvin Locke hires former Army Lieutenant turned runner Joseph Capelli to escort him to his sister's home in Haven, Oklahoma. Considered a traitor for assassinating hero Nathan Hale, Capelli believes he did the right thing as his mentor was turning. However, Hale is inside his mind making Capelli believe he is a head case. Capelli, his dog Rowdy and Locke begin a suicidal journey in which the chimera, their human monsters and humans are lethal.
In the Lucky Buckle Mine, Colorado, inmate 26301 has a plan to rescue other convicts trapped inside a cave in. Her overseer Boss Cooper takes her to the top gun vicious Brewster who tells Inmate Susan Farley to see him after she finishes her rescue mission. Farley plans to kill him and escape.
The novelization prequel to the Resistancetm 3 videogame is a terrific alternate historical thriller that obviously ties to the game, but reads like an independent novel with three major subplots. Besides the clever post-apocalyptic landscape filled with destruction, there is romance that brings hope. Loaded with action, game fans and other readers will relish the Resistance.
The team observed three Chimeran Attack Drones on Highway 123. Then a phalanx of Steelheads appeared in the snow, followed by three Maulers carrying huge packs. After the last stink disappeared into the snow storm, Hale pulled his team off the hill to return to base.
About forty-five minutes from the VTOL landing zone, a Burrower popped out of the ground and unloaded Hybrids. An Attack Drone also hit the tail of his formation. Hale took out the drone, but lost one man to Bullseye projectiles.
Hale and his team fled the area with Howlers chasing them. They wounded the leading Chimera and ran. Then the VTOL strafed the Howlers and loaded the survivors.
In this novel, Joseph Capelli was a SRPA Sentinel until he killed Nathan Hale. Now he is a freelance runner. He and his dog Rowdy deliver packages and letters for money or goods.
Marvin Kawecki is a Captain in the US Army. He thinks Capelli murdered Hale.
Thomas Voss is President of the United States. He had assumed the office after McCullen and his cabinet died in a VTOL crash.
Fyodor Malikow is a Russian, who had fled Europe as the Chimera broke out of Russia. He developed the serum used by the Sentinels and the new Hale vaccine.
Susan Farley had been an inmate within a Colorado State prison before the Chimera came. Now she is an involuntary worker in the Lucky Buckle Mine.Read more ›
