By USA Today Bestselling authors Nick Webb and David Adams writing together as Peter Bostrom, The Last War is one of those "unputdownable" kinds of books. Here's what the readers are saying:
"I was so wrapped up in the book that I didn't want to put it down, not even to eat ... I felt this way about a book once before, and that was Stephen King's The Stand. " --Chris Nichols
"It is always a thrill to find a new story I simply cannot put down." --M. T. Shore
"Action! If you're looking for space battles, this book delivers. The revelation at the end blew my mind and made me wish the second book was out already." --Ramon Burley-Johnson
A Space Station Destroyed...
As America celebrates 20 years of peace with the Chinese, Admiral Jack Mattis goes on an inspection tour of the first joint American-Chinese space station. Tensions remain high, but lasting peace in our time finally looks possible.
Out of nowhere, the unthinkable happens. A mysterious alien force appears, obliterating an American space station, and aiming straight for the joint US-PRC base Mattis is touring, sending the defenders scrambling.
It's impossible. In a hundred years of deep space exploration, aliens were never to be found.
A War Hero on the Run
The aliens are relentless. And unthinkably powerful. Their ships sweep the defenders aside in a rain of fire, shrapnel, and terror.
All appears lost.
But Admiral Jack Mattis has won his share of desperate battles and overcome steep odds before. It falls squarely on his shoulders to rally the defenders and fight this terrifying new enemy.
But Old Hatred Dies Hard...
In the face of the new threat, Admiral Mattis races the aliens to Earth, knowing that if he fails, Earth falls. A genocide. The end of human civilization.
But old tensions between former enemies simmer to the surface, and Mattis must rally old enemies to face the common threat. And in the chaos, a multi-government conspiracy rears its head, and threatens to undo everything humanity has achieved in a thousand years.
Human civilization is on the line.
And only one old war hero can save it.
God help us all.
