Reviewed by Asher Syed for Readers' Favorite

A Moonlit Armageddon by Paul J.C. Edge is a science-fiction thriller that follows what is left of humanity in its last stand. It is the third and final novel in The Summer Haven trilogy, preceded by book one, An English Apocalypse, and book two, A Doctrine of Fear. A world war in Europe means something quite different from what we have known it to be in Edge's battle between good and evil, and between good and even worse evil. Earth has been ravaged by a malevolent enemy, aliens who seem entirely immune to traditional human weaponry. And there are only so many nuclear warheads. The Cros pummel every human, rounding them up for labor camps. It is also a battle of faith, where two young girls may hold the key to success. “The infected are coming, we need to get out of here...”

Alien pirates. Alien coalitions. Gland and unusual organ harvesting. An army of spirits trapped in earthly purgatory. Cloning. Recloning. Polymorphic organic metals—[if you know, you know]. Yes, A Moonlit Armageddon basically ticked off my entire Christmas reading list in 48 hours. So it's been a great weekend. If a reader has made it to this last leg in the series, you are already acquainted with Edge's writing style and are here for the war. The action scenes delivered are spectacular, as is the ability to get to know those who fall into the “other” category, such as Abe who has a knack for calling out decent child actors. The cloning and technological aspects fit neatly and comfortably into the suspension of disbelief box, and the tension when the good guys start to question whether or not they can continue putting their trust and lives in the hands of those who were the former bad guys, feels authentic. Once a Barak, always a Barak, right? This is a book fans will find satisfying and it really was impossible to put down. Read the first two first, do your time, and then enjoy the wild ride. Very highly recommended.
