Onslaught is an exciting work of hard science fiction by author D. Rebbitt, and the third book in The Globur Incursion series. The Globurs of the series title are a race of intelligent life, the first to be discovered by the human race in the future. After many years of strained attempts and goodwill missions to contact this other race and make peace, the take-no-prisoners aliens have struck back with horrifying force. As Onslaught begins, a disastrous attempt at first contact sees various factions leaping into the fray to defend humanity after great losses. The contact team are stranded in a world determined to kill them, and they must be rescued even as the Globurs approach to launch their terrifying attack.
I found it easy enough to pick up the story line and history of Onslaught as I began to read because the novel is highly plot driven rather than character led. We travel to different viewpoints of personnel as the war looms on the horizon, and the sharp, action-packed plot is paired with clear, concise dialogue about the situation and the implications that humanity now faces. The pacing is good, making for an exciting read the further you get into the story. D. Rebbitt writes without too much flourish, the ideal kind of narration you’d expect from hard science fiction and military action adventure books. If you’re already into these genres, Onslaught will fit right in as a comfortably familiar yet new and exciting read with plenty to offer.
