At last, science fiction that would be competitive with that written by the masters of 30 to 40 years ago. Hiveborn, the third and last book in the Earthborn Wars series. There is a little of Star Wars mixed with the Night of the Living Dead and the Body Snatchers in this book about a time in our future where survivors of an earthly holocaust, a cultic spaceborn group, and people taken over by alien parasites vie to win over the others and create a new day and a new way for planet earth’s human population. The key is which one will gain ascendancy? The action and pace are relentless, the characters unique and believable, and the technologies are predictable. We rated this excellent novel by its award-winning Australian author five hearts.
