The Night of Reckoning: The Third Gomer Wars by Michael S. Pauley continues the struggles of humanity as they fight off aliens and rebuild life on earth. Peace is the only way to survive, and General Patrick knows that. The attacks from the aliens are not stopping any time soon, and it appears that he and the rest of the armed forces will have to take the necessary steps to prevent these alien attacks once and for all. The episodes are becoming more ferocious, and this time the Gomers know where to hit them where it hurts the most. No one is safe; not even men like Patrick. With the top leadership attacks, it seems like the aliens are ready to end this war once and for all. What can Patrick, President Blanchard, and their team do against an adversary with far better technology, weaponry, and power? Was this going to be the end of them?
Although I have not read the previous novels in the series, I had no issues catching up and getting immersed in the story. Many authors have tried to tackle the end of the world/alien invasion trope, but none have been this intricate in my experience. The world-building is out of this world. The descriptions gave me chills. The narrative is so realistic that I found myself lost in the story and felt like I was right next to the characters in every situation. Michael S. Pauley drives the story forward and gives readers a boost to keep on reading. The mystery Gomer attacks and why do the aliens keep coming back is handled well. The overall feeling of doom gave me goosebumps. The Night of Reckoning is a brilliant novel that readers who enjoy end of the world stories will love.
