I gave this book 5 stars because the multiple plotlines were handled very well. It has been several decades since I was reading science fiction/futuristic fiction and then it was mostly the 20th century greats. This book was one of the books I chose to start my adventure into modern sci-fi.
It took several chapters to get me to the point of really wanting to finish....partly because I have absolutely no military knowledge. Once I got past that, I could not put it down.
I really liked the way the author was able to blend the old myth(or reality) of the Roswell incident with a look at a possible future. The book contains all the necessary elements to make for a good read - the good guys, the bad guys, new technology and a battle between good and evil.
I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to read a good modern science fiction novel.
Overall this was a an entertaining read. At times it was a little melodramatic and it felt as if the author was hitting me over the head with the emotions he was trying to convey. The action was good, but the lack of detailed character description made it difficult to keep track of the characters and I was not sure who was actually killed in the end.
