Shockwave: The Battle for Earth (Journal One) by Hammer Trollkin is a compelling science fiction story packed with action and features a phenomenal conflict, one that is about to annihilate the entire world. It is a crisis moment and the aliens that attack the earth are not just evil, but ruthless. They bring with them technology that is far more advanced and allows them to dominate. The earth has suffered much from civil wars, the clash of civilizations, and other conflicts. Faced with the evil that confronts them now from the outside, can they unite to present a single front? A ragtag team of fighters is the only hope for humanity, but can they survive the superior military might of the aliens?
Highly imaginative and written in a unique style, Shockwave: The Battle for Earth (Journal One) opens with tension, introducing readers to earth already splintered by conflict, and the action grows in magnitude, transporting readers into an interstellar war that is as powerful as it is defining for the future of mankind. The characters are well-written, some feisty, like Rock and Roll, Muncle, and Mr. T. Each character is given a unique background and I enjoyed how they complement each other as a team. There is hilarity in the action and the author shows a good sense of humor, weaving it into the conversations between the characters and in the unusual manner in which the events are described. Hammer Trollkin writes in beautiful prose and explores themes of war, teamwork, terrorism, and the struggle for survival. The writing is highly descriptive and the narrative voice is strong and confident. Shockwave is filled with action, fast-paced, and exhilarating. A fun read, indeed.
