They arrived - tens of thousands of extraterrestrial beings - in huge spaceships the size of a modern metropolis. THey came from a dying planet. All htey wanted, in exchange for their vast knowledge of science and technology, was a small share of the earth's natural resources. Theirs was a mission of peace...and mankind believed them. Until they began to multiply into an army of alien invaders. Until men, women, and children - entire cities - began to vanish from the earth. Until the horrifying reality behind their mission of peace - a reign of terror reminiscent of Nazi Germany on a global scale - created the human imperative...resist or perish.
we all know how the series went on t.v., short lived!! but the book is way more interesting! and should probably have been left in book form!! as we know the book is always much better than the movie!! a must read for sci-fi buffs!
