Assault Troopers (Extinction Wars) (Volume 1)

The Earth died when aliens rained thermonuclear warheads on her cities and sprayed the surface with a bio-terminator. A deadly poison drifted to every corner of the planet, threatening the last survivors with annihilation.

For a soldier in Antarctica like Creed, there is only one way to keep breathing untainted air. He must bury his hatred of the extraterrestrials and join the Jelk Corporation as an assault trooper, leaving the planet for outer space. In return for his and other people’s services, the corporation will house the last humans for as long as the assault troopers keep winning.

For the price of living and the chance to save humanity, Creed has to wear a shock chip in his neck–Jelk discipline is harsh–and he has to don a symbiotic battlesuit that feeds off his sweat. Human life is cheap in the vast alien war. The assault troopers are little more than suicide soldiers, but for humanity to escape extinction, they must survive. But Creed didn’t agree to the bargain in order to remain a dog to the aliens. He has a plan, and he’ll need all his cunning to beat these star-born bastards and begin the road to freedom for the human race.

ASSAULT TROOPERS is a tale of human extinction and ultimate desperation, written by bestselling author Vaughn Heppner.

  1. Needs to find his own images Sorry, this review is a bit rough. No offense intended, but I feel the need to inform other potential buyers of some aspects of this novel that I didn’t care for very much. 

  2. Skip the whole series unless you have a lot of time to waste with nothing else to do It’s a decent premise but I didn’t feel it was executed very well. The first person style really didn’t work for me. The characters were 1 dimensional at best and showed zero growth or development. They were all exactly the same at the end of the book as they were at the beginning. A bunch of not very well described and not particularly believable things happened to a bunch of unengaging and uninteresting characters. I seriously don’t understand the 5 star reviews, since to me, that implies…

  3. Gets progressively better as it goes along Gets progressively better as it goes along! I about tossed it after the first chapter – the Navy flies F-18’s not the Air Force, the military hasn’t taken jailbirds since ‘nam, .50 cal machine guns are not man portable no matter who you are, ‘Blacksands’ (gag!), you don’t take a shuttle out of mothballs in 24-hours, private security in Antarctica doesn’t get grenades for a science team no matter who you are, and some other boners. I stuck that out and it’s worth it, enjoying it now. Jut needed…
