41waGArtM9L Independence Day: Crucible (The Official Prequel) review Books Book Reviews

Cities were crushed by the falling spacecraft—but one ship didn’t crash. It remained intact, and disgorged hordes of alien soldiers determined to fight to the death. The abandoned vessels also contained a wealth of advanced technology. Led by David Levinson, the greatest minds of our world developed deadly new hybrid weapons. Bases were built on the Moon, Mars, and beyond. A new generation of defenders had to be trained, for the invaders would return. In the headlong rush to prepare, however, not everyone would survive…

Independence Day: Crucible (The Official Prequel)

This prequel is something you should only read after you see the movie, as there’s really nothing that happens in it of note and it’s only interesting to give a minor bit more character development and to fill in some of the side plots that the movie didn’t bother to explain at all. There’s a few items that I was expecting to see: How Hiller died, how the country in Africa was fighting the aliens, where the iMac aliens came from and why the aliens took so long to get back to our planet.

This book answers none of these questions though, and in fact creates even MORE questions about these unresolved story elements. In the book, Hiller just explodes off screen (is that possible in a book? they just reference it, don’t explain it very well at all), the country in Africa does some hand waving and kills off all the aliens in a year or two, and the iMac aliens aren’t mentioned at all, except in a tangential way related to the visions the president (and others) were having. I was extremely unsatisfied with the lack of progression of the world building and makes me feel even worse about the movie.

I’m going to move onto the movie novelization next I think, maybe they answer some questions there, but considering this book series’ track record, I don’t expect much.

5146DQNgPvL Independence Day: Dark Fathom review Books Book Reviews

Twenty years after the events of the first film, the international community recovers and builds up Earth’s defenses using technology salvaged from remains of the alien forces. However, the aliens were able to send a distress signal before their final defeat, which results in a new task force of alien ships coming to Earth and threatening the human race once more

A great idea: One of the City Destroyers is underwater and up to no good. A great idea: Have a submarine full of Marines invade it and fight the aliens. How it falls apart: reusing the drilling storyline from Resurgence.

It’s a good comic, great art that has recognizable aliens and characters, with some pretty good splash pages. The story however seems meh. A damaged hero is sent under the ocean’s surface to investigate what a crashed City Destroyer is up to. I wish they had more time/space to flesh out the characters and storyline a bit, as this whole thing seemed rushed and incredibly derivative of the second Independence Day movie.

418BV4RJKQL Independence Day: War in Desert review Books Book Reviews

It is the Fourth of July. Reeling from the enemy onslaught, a few surviving military pilots gather in the Saudi Arabian desert. Two of the best fliers, flight instructors Reg and Faisal, self-appointed leaders of the Saudi Forces, can barely contain their animosity when a message from the Americans forces them to unite.A weak point has been found in the alien “City Destroyers.” The air war against them was costly–but it worked!…Or did it? Too late, Reg and Faisal discover their “victory” was an illusion–part of a secret ambush that will open the planet to unimaginable horror, unless these overmatched warriors from several Middle Eastern nations can overcome long-standing hatreds and unite against the aliens in the fiercest hand-to-hand combat of the war.Capturing the spectacular action of the blockbuster Twentieth Century Fox film, this authorized novel adds exciting new material to the ID4 story!

In which a troubled pilot trainer somehow turns the course of the war while on the ground. Some interesting ideas of the aliens that were forgotten about in the next novel / movie, but not really a recommended reading.

Also: The pyramids do not make an appearance in this book at all, but some racial phrases get thrown around willy nilly, which was weird.

51S67MYH3WL Independence Day: Silent Zone review Books Book Reviews

he No. 1 blockbuster movie Independence Day was only part of the story. After the alien invaders are downed and teams are sent out to find survivors, only some personal belongings of Dr. Brackish Okun, head scientist of Area 51, are found.

Okun’s story is amazing, yet completely believable. It begins in the 1970s when this CalTech genius arrives at Area 51 to work with the National Security Agency (NSA) and the CIA on the study of a downed spaceship retrieved from Roswell, New Mexico.

But there is much more to the job than Okun realized. Soon, he begins to suspect that a massive government cover-up has successfuly buried all evidence of alien visitation throughout the years–a cover-up in which Okun is now an unwilling participant. His perseverance leads him to the truth behind the studies at Area 51, the government’s fear of an alien invasion and a mysterious encounter in the Mexican desert at a place known as “La Manta de Silencia”: The Silent Zone.

Not a terrible book, much better written and laid out than the novelization of the movie, but it suffers from the obvious problem of being a prequel. We know that not much work was done on the alien space ship and we know that not much really happens to change the world that ID4 starts in. There’s a few good plot threads that held my attention, but this was clearly a test story to see if anyone actually cared about the universe. Luckily it did well enough to warrant a few more books in the series, which I’ll be consuming very quickly I think, as they’re all sequels and have some promise of furthering the story along.

51D0TBC58AL Independence Day novelization review Books Book Reviews

After seeing Independence Day Resurgence, I thought I’d go back and read the novelization of the first movie. I shouldn’t have, it unfortunately was just a quick script to book novelization that offered little more story than the original movie did. I’m trying to read it’s sequel right now, but it’s a difficult read due to being a prequel and not much of anything happens in it.

51I6Rp9axLL Star Trek: Countdown To Darkness review Books Book Reviews

The countdown to the motion picture event of 2013 begins here, in this blockbuster 4-issue prequel mini-series that sets the stage for the upcoming Star Trek film! Like the best-selling Star Trek: Countdown in 2009, this all-new series leads directly into the next movie, with a story by Star Trek writer/producer Roberto Orci and Mike Johnson (Star Trek) ongoing series), and drawn by the original Star Trek: Countdown artist, David Messina! Star Trek: Countdown To Darkness is the can’t-miss lead-in to the new adventures of the Enterprise crew!

A great comic, but only if you take it as a completely separate story and not a countdown to anything and certainly not a prequel at ALL to the “Star Trek Into Darkness” movie. Nothing to do with it at all unfortunately.

That being said, if you want more Alternate Dimension Star Trek, this is a great, if brief, story.

iamnumberfour 678x1024 “Lorien Legacies” book series review Books Book Reviews

I finished the “Lorien Legacies” book series sometime last week. It’s a great classic science fiction /young adult series of books that had some pretty cool ideas that were nearly perfectly realized. That being said, this is cheesy super power / coming of age stuff, but if you know that going in, it doesn’t really stick out as much.

You may remember a movie by the same name released back in 2011. It didn’t do as well as they had hoped, which is a shame, as that was just the beginning of a great story that went on for several more books:

I Am Number Four
The Power Of Six
The Rise Of Nine
The Fall of Five
The Revenge of Seven
The Fate of Ten
United As One

Something that isn’t noticable but is of note, all these books are written by different people, all using the same pen name of “Pittacus Lore”, which is also the name of a character in the book series.

You should read these if you enjoy campy science fiction that has a great coming of age story line with pretty cool super powers.
