The first few pages are back story and not as interesting as the rest of the book. By the middle of the first chapter, however, the excitement begins. The author’s writing style is very compelling; once you start reading, it’s hard to put it down. The plot is adventurous and dangerous at times. As book 1 of a trilogy, it leaves you eager for the next books in the series. I would recommend The Rule of Lorques: Lorque Exposure to those who are interested in books about alien invasions and the heroes that fight back against them.
