Publisher's Summary

Kyle Washaki "Wash" Williams thought his life couldn’t get any more complicated. Then the aliens showed up …

After his mom died from cancer, Wash gave up his girlfriend and his dream of being a career Army officer to stay home and take care of his father, a former Special Forces soldier stricken with PTSD. Wash works three jobs just to pay the bills, and one of them is at the ranch of the man who’s engaged to his exgirlfriend, Jimmy Bonner.

Sound rough? He thought so too … until a portal to a hell-world of giant, insectoid aliens opens behind the ranch house, sucking Wash and Jimmy into the nightmare domain of the Hive Mind, a monstrous, underground blob of brain tissue that stretches across multiple planets through the Gate System.

It exists only to spread itself across the universe. And its next target is Earth.

Will Wash be able to defend the planet from conquest by a swarm of giant alien insects? And will Jimmy be able to put aside his rivalry with Wash to fight for Earth, or will he decide that an alien horde is the perfect tool to dispose of his old enemy?

The answer lies on the other side … of the Gates of Hell.

Mok's review

The moment the bully rich kid fell through the portal with the unexpected hero I knew exactly what was going to happen. The school rich kid thug was going to become the villain of the 1st story. I'm tired of series that are so predictable like this.

Great book, going to be another great series

Disclaimer: I’m already a huge fan of Rick Partlow’s work. This is going to be another page turner, white night inducing, cannot put down series. Exciting, involving and thoughtful examination of a great story base. Thumbs up for Mr. Cronin’s performance.

a few things

first James does a great job of narrating like he always does.

second the story is very different from how the description describes it might be. its more of a weird bullied and down on his luck kid goes through a series of unfortunate events to get his ex back. which was a little lame and the story is told through way too many perspectives even for Rick. While I thought it was going to be a cool Doom marine fighting off the forces of hell with ingenuity and the teachings of his ex special forces dad it very much was not that as ive stated.

third its super lame that he got back with his ex who dumped him while he was in a low point instead of with the cute alien girl
