My Review

We now know we are not alone. Our first contact with aliens is a friendly one. Good thing too, as the next ones to visit are on a mission to destroy our way of life. To erase us from existence.

Teaming up with our new friends is a necessity. We’ll need their help, their technology, if we hope to have even the slightest chance to repel the invaders.

The authors own experience flying an Apache Attack Helicopter in combat lends realism to the scenes. Especially when Captain Jake Giard has to pull some extraordinary maneuvers to evade the alien spaceships.

Jake has a lot of baggage. The loss of his best friend in a flight training session is traumatic enough. Then, the blame is laid on his shoulders.

 Blending science fiction with apocalyptic scenarios, the author keeps you sharp and on edge, just like the characters. You’ll have a front row seat in the jets, almost feel your stomach flip flop with the g- forces.

The friendly aliens have some surprises, some secrets, which, when shared, shed a whole new light on humanity and our origins.

And the not so friendly aliens, the ones trying to take over our planet and annihilate us, they have some nasty tricks up their sleeves.

Lots of action, and, as with any type of military action story, lots of acronyms. Don’t worry about those. The author explains them and you catch on pretty quickly. I feel they add a certain amount of genuineness to the story.

Looking for some exciting science fiction and post apocalyptic hellish adventure. Check this book out!

5 Stars



X-Files meet Independence Day when incredible events thrust Air Force Captains Jake Giard and Sandra Fitzpatrick into a decades-long global conspiracy to integrate humanity into a galactic government. However, as Jake finishes indoctrination into the program, it renders present-day Earth a disposable pawn in a galactic civil war.

Unknown aliens with a dark secret raid the planet.

Within and even below Washington DC, Jake fights through a post-apocalyptic hell, struggling to comprehend the enigmatic aftermath of the first attack. On the West Coast, Sandra’s squadron smashes against the invading aliens. Thrown to ground, Sandy wades through blazing infernos and demented looters in a desperate attempt to save her family.

Finally, with the fate of the world in the balance, both captains must take the battle to the enemy–humanity’s very survival hanging on their success.

Author Dean M. Cole

Dean M. Cole

Author of SECTOR 64: Ambush, world traveler, and commercial helicopter pilot, Dean M. Cole writes from locales as remote as Equatorial Guinea and as romantic as Paris’s Champs-Elysées with his trusty sidekick and beautiful wife, Donna Marsh Cole. A combat veteran, he flew Apache Attack Helicopters in the US Army’s First Cavalry Division.

License to kill revoked by the government, he traded in his attack helicopter for one of the transport ilk. When not weaving tales of alien apocalypse and redemption, he spends his days flying terrestrial aliens in IFOs (Identified Flying Objects) known as helicopters. No longer authorized to dispatch aliens he settles for dropping them off at oil rigs around the globe.

On the six months of time-off his paying job affords, author, biker, and fellow Sci-Fi geek Dean M. Cole travels with his wife, builds airplanes and custom choppers, and writes his next tale of the apocalypse.

With a passion for physics and a belief that there’s more we don’t know than we do, Dean efforts to anchor his science fiction in the possible. However, when needed he employs extra dimensions and HQT (Heims Quantum Theory) to leverage the gaps in our physics knowledge to wield his literary wand—shattering relativistic speed limits (and allowing him to sleep at night).
