This ambitious series opener from Douglas...throws military sci-fi tropes and time-honored conspiracy theories into a blender to create a bonkers alternate present...Douglas gleefully combines an eclectic mix of conspiracies, among them Roswell Greys, humanoid lizards, and space-faring Nazis, while launching his characters into intergalactic battles with the skillful combat sequences fans well expect. -- Publishers Weekly on Alien Secrets Douglas does a good job keeping the action rolling along. The rapid-fire pace is just what some readers are looking for...The end sets up the next adventure in a very good way...There is more action and adventure to come, and that is a good thing. -- SFRevu on Alien Secrets The action is full-blooded and almost nonstop, yet the well-developed background is surprisingly rich and logical. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on Earth Strike
