About This Book


In the night sky over a peaceful English village, the red planet hangs low on the horizon.

Mysterious flares are sighted on the Martian surface—what could they mean?  Then strange metal cylinders begin dropping on English soil.  And then death emerges from those cylinders.  Earth is under attack from an enemy it never knew existed!
