Counterweight Maneuver (The Counterweight Series #1) by Richie De-Benham

Science Fiction


Book Talk Radio Club has accurately awarded another winner.  This book is in their 2018 Science Fiction category.








What if the aliens currently attacking our Earth are actually technology controlled by a member of our government?  Side note – Ok, in today’s political arena that may not be too far fetched.  However, in this case, the technology, that at first seems incredibly unbelievable, is logical and makes it easy to comprehend how this could be attempted.  The book is fast-paced and the first in a series. You have the first book usual items such as backgrounds and open ending, but both are presented in such a way that the reader is involved.

As much as I enjoyed this book I did have a disconnect with the relationship between two of the main characters – Bradley and Shana.  Maybe after a little more time with them, like the next book, I will better understand the connection.
