Review by Rose

Forget what you think you know. How well do you really know your neighbors or fellow workers? Do you trust your boss? What about politicians? The fabric of our society is under attack. Our way of life, our livelihood, our very existence is under full assault. No one even realizes that it’s happening. Disguised as horrible natural disasters on the news, the world is caught unsuspecting as events draw us ever nearer to extinction. As “natural disasters” escalate and tensions between nations mount, one man hears a whisper. It has begun . . .

David Englund brings us a new episode in his science fiction series about Clark Jackson, a mild-mannered, every-man accountant who has discovered the existence of portals from our world to other, intergalactic worlds. In this book, he utilizes the portals some, but mostly to discover what he can about a race of alien creatures who have taken up residence on earth—and their attentions are not friendly.

There are only a few people aware that aliens are camouflaged as friends, family, and neighbors and Clark, along with his girlfriend, a co-worker (who is not quite what he seems), and a reporter have to work together to save the world from disaster. Clever characterizations and descriptive writing make this book a joy to read.

This book can be read as a standalone, but the reader would get a lot more enjoyment out of it by reading the series in order. There are some things that happen in this book that would gain from having some exposure by what comes before. All in all, an enjoyable read.
