In the near future,an astronomer, Marcus Donovan, discovers a strange alien artifact out beyond Mars and commandeers an exploratory vessel to investigate. Meanwhile, a mysterious force invades Earth. In what seems a blink of an eye, Earth is literally blasted into nothingness. Jack Hernandez, a search and rescue specialist, is one of the lucky few survivors. Jack, along with a handful of friends, joins the scattered resistance and wages a desperate terrorist war against the aliens, striking back any way they can.

In the struggle to reclaim Earth, Jack and Marcus must each take on responsibilities they never could have imagined. Subjugated by an enemy that shows neither compassion nor regret, the last remnants of mankind are soon to discover that every choice can lead to unforeseen consequences. Their epic fight rages from China to Africa, and from Earth to Mars, where they uncover secrets that shake their understanding of humankind itself.

From my earliest days of reading, I have always loved science fiction, particularly, space opera. "Stars Rain Down" is great space opera. The author has a fine eye for detail, painting a vivid picture for the reader. The story unfolds in such a manner that keeps you wanting to know more. The dialog is outstanding, and the characters are truly believable. I was slightly disappointed in the conclusion, however the author did leave the reader with the thought that there might be a sequel. I would be very happy if there was one. Excellent job.
