About the book:
Sandra just discovered she's pregnant, but with humanity on the brink of extinction, this Air Force Captain might be the world's only hope. Independence Day meets The X-Files when Air Force fighter pilots Jake Giard and Sandra Fitzpatrick join a decades-old secret project to integrate today's Earth into a galactic government. But when a galactic civil war spills onto our shores, plunging the planet into an otherworldly post-apocalyptic hell, can Jake and Sandy save humanity from extinction?
As unknown aliens with a dark secret continue to raid the planet, 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.

The review --
In beginning of this book, the author snags you into the storyline by twisting and turning it. The author has done the background needed to make the pilot's flights very real. And has put this information into understandable words, so much so that I could easily understand what was happening, and why, without having to look up definitions. The is a sex scene and a half in book. Not really steamy, but enough to warrant a mention for those who are looking at getting this book for someone else.
The chapters do jump around to different areas in the "world" so that the reader can know what is happening everywhere at the same time within the next chapter or two. The author is very descriptive about the places and what is going on at those places that it feels like you are a fly on the wall watching the events unfold.
