Aliens taking over earth. Learning to live under the Jao is difficult, but necessary due to the predicted coming attack of an even stronger enemy. Very nice read, great characters.
Got the book in the mail the other day. Will report on it when read. Thanks MOM!
I really enjoyed this book sent to me by Thanksmom. The story "flowed" and the characters were fleshed out enough to make them seem real. The alien conquers earth story with a twist. A conquerer with the will to listen to the conquered and take their recommendations serious.
Though earth is more technologicly advanced than the Jao, we don't have space going craft other than a few old shuttles. The Jao were given their space going advantages by the Ekhat, who in turn created the Jao. They use the Jao to conquer other species then go on to totally exterminate whole planets. When the Jao discover that humans can think outside the box they combine talents and come up with ways to defeat the Ekhat. Only the threat of extermination allows both species to come to rely on each other to save Earth.
Fast read, damn good book! Promised to another BXer.
