    Awesome start to a series...

    Invasion, the first book in this volume, is a great start to a new post-apocalyptic series. I knew relatively early in the book what was going to happen near the end of the book, who would still be alive, some of the difficulties they'd be facing late in the book, and about where the book was going to end. As the final few chapters were winding on, it turns out that I was right...until the last chapter, where I didn't see that coming at all and then I couldn't wait for the second book in the series to come out. Lucky for you, you get to read this as part of an omnibus and won't have to wait for the second volume to be published! It was a very satisfying story, providing a gritty look at a family trying to survive a forecasted alien invasion. At least, one could assume it was going to be an invasion, because that's the title of the book and that's what everybody living through the events fear; most of this book takes place between the discovery of aliens approaching Earth and their actual arrival, making the actual trials that Meyer and company face a much more human experience. As is born out in the later volumes, there is an actual alien invasion happening, so it all works out quite well even though aliens don't actually figure into the first volume at all. Contact is a good followup to Invasion, and takes place 3 months later. It follows Meyer's family as they try to live without going crazy inside of the bunker, and the crowds of people attracted to Meyer's house because he was abducted there in the hopes that they might be abducted too. (Lots of hippies.) Not is all sunshine and rainbows, though, as some of the crowd have discovered the bunker, and are trying to break in... I enjoyed the new characters and relationships introduced in this book, and like how nobody is safe from danger. That said, this book is not quite as "page-turney" as the first book, owing in large part to a lot of the action taking place in a very confined space. There is a bit of travel as a few of the main characters try to find a secret research base in Utah and to travel there from Meyer's bunker without getting killed, but it wasn't just one life-threatening event after another as folks tried to cross the country from NY to CO like in the first volume, so it certainly seems as though things take their own time in this followup. Meyer himself plays a very small role in this second book, although given how the book ends I expected that he would play a much larger role in the third book (and he does.) In Colonization, the final volume of this Omnibus, we're back with Meyer, who is really a great character. He's solidly on the side of the aliens, and we get to spend a lot more time with the aliens that in either of the previous two volumes. We learn of at least 2 different kinds of aliens (and a rumored third kind that don't actually appear) as Meyer leads a human society under the alien's thumbs and rebel humans do what they can to pester the alien presence on their land. The action in this 3rd volume is back on the order of the first book, so you will tear right through it. At the end, you get to learn what is more important to Meyer: his place at the head of the human colony on our own planet under the thumb of the aliens...or his family. Plus, if it wasn't totally obvious in the first two books...Raj is a complete ******. Do be warned, though...once the story ends, the epilogue at the end of volume 3 is a lot like the one at the end of volume one, except you aren't going to have the fourth book immediately ready to read right now. I can't wait for it to come out.

    Alien Invasion Box Set

    This is the first sci-fi book i have ever read. I absolutely loved it. I had to keep reading to find out what would happen next. The plot was exciting, the characters believeable, etc, etc. I would highly recommend this book.

    Invasion (first 3 books)

    Entertaining read but the writing is somewhat atrocious. One of my biggest pet peeves is when books are poorly edited and proof read. It should not be an expectation that you will find typos in literature. Aside from that, I am enjoying the story.
