Set in the same universe as the Worldwar series, the Colonization series brings us to Earth in the 1960s, where four superpowers rule: the United States, Russia, Nazi Germany, and the aliens of the Race.

The arrival of the aliens shot Earth technology forward at a dizzying rate---the world of 1960 includes routine space shuttle traffic, computers on every desk, and other high-tech advancements. Aftershocks reveals that it was the United States that launched the nuclear offensive against the aliens, and when the aliens learn the truth, Indianapolis disappears in nuclear fire.

In alien-held China, a full-fledged rebellion is launched, and in Poland, a nuclear bomb goes missing - held by Jewish forces who seek to use it against the Nazis. The nations of Earth begin to realize that their only hope in holding back the aliens will be to work together. Because separately, they may face extinction.

    " ...another still to be read "

    " Can the Nations keep the peace? Or is there complete destruction as H.G. Wells had predicted. "

    " The second four-book series about humanity's encounter with alien invaders moves toward its conclusion - more of Harry Turtledove's excellent-as-usual alternate history SF, blending action with serious ideas and appealing human interest. I hope he never gets tired of writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 5/17/2012

    " one of my favorite series but starting to loose it's punch. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathan | 1/26/2012

    " Oddly, this one just stops. Lizards and humans struggle to get on with life for a few years of time, with a couple of bits of hazard, and then the book just stops. Almost mid-sentence. No big climax, no resolution, nothing. Strange. Rated M for some violence, coarse language and sex scenes. 2.5/5 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kallierose | 1/24/2012

    " This was just as much fun to read as the rest of the series. If you're a fan of sci-fi alternative history books, you ought to give this series a shot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 D.C. Belton | 7/25/2011

    " Very little in the way of keen insights. What was the point? Difficult to believe that young people would behave like lizards. "

    " 7th book in the series, one to go. A step down from the last one too. Some good ideas, but I figured out the "big reveal" last book already so all in all, the whole premise was a bit predictable. Looking forward to finishing this off and moving on... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie Pedersen witt | 6/27/2011

    " On to book 8 of the series. I have to finish this to find out what happens but it's been a long read. Generations go by, people disappear from one book to the next and you never know what actually happened to some of them. But #8 is sitting on my coffee table.... "

    " Excellent. Insightful, intriguing, revealing, funny. Love this trilogy. "

    " Just leaves it hanging and uninteresting. This series is a waste of time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ryan | 3/22/2010

    " I really didn't like this book. I thought it was actually going to be alternate history, but in reality it was just a weird science fiction story with no real hook. I stopped reading half way through. "
