    1. Author, John Murphy, has done something that I’ve not seen much of, recently: build strong engaging characters that pull you into the read. Mr. Murphy has also done some exceptional world building. You will find yourselves immersed by the detail that the author invested for the planet Veritas. This explosive book takes on a gritty military feel that plunges you into the story. You will find it difficult to set down, and when you do, you will find yourself peeking inside, once more, to find out [...]

    2. In the future, the USA and other countries have surrendered their sovereignty to the Global Alliance---which is the puppet organization for E.T. imperialists (the Carthenogens).Vaughn Killian's life and parents are part of the collateral damage in the Carthenogens' brutal occupation of Thailand. A naive teenage gamer when the story begins, he becomes part of the guerrilla resistance in Bangkok, learning to fight and survive on the streets.Killian is eventually rescued out of there by a Tier-One [...]

    3. The story begins with sixteen-year-old Vaughn Killian, the son of the US ambassador to Thailand. He’s a typical teenager, interested only in video games and girls (pretty much in that order), and fairly oblivious to the ominous changes to the world. He finds the shouts of protestors annoying, and is unaware of political implications of the unrest around him. He rarely gives any thought to the alien Carthenogens who have effectively conquered the earth through the brilliantly simple strategy of [...]

    4. Great world building and charactors lines are built as the book begins and goes from start to finish. I would not recommend that no one should read if at a younger age because of the violence and gore it contains especially as the book begins. Eventually the main charactors is saved during a attack by forces unknown who wish to remain that. It was a good grab you by your butt kind of a book to read it. I sat and started this today after finishing another book today. Am I tired of course, was it [...]

    5. Good premise, too much unnecessary profanityGreat idea with a good story line, just too much unnecessary swearing that didn't even fit the story in places.

    6. Imagine going to a place that literally force you to speak the truth. Reveal your true self and your darkest secrets can sound very scary but for the young candidates this is a reality they have to face in this book.Long story short, Killian had to witness his parents death and the Carthenogens taking control under the false speech of peace. Surviving as a rebel for a while, Killian had to do and see some crude realities. A serious of events presents him the opportunity of fighting against this [...]

    7. How do you take control of a planet without violence? By advocating peace. The only problem is: when you kill in the name of peace, someone will know. And even if that person is only a teenager, he holds the potential for bringing the whole system down.Mission Veritas is a riveting blend of military fiction and space invader drama, and while the main protagonist is a teenager, to call this 'young adult' reading or limit its audience to teens would be wrong on so many levels. Adults will find it [...]

    8. A very quick read despite the length; one of those books that convinces me your English teachers were out to destroy your love of reading back in school by constantly assigning "classics" that drag on and on, and make you hate your life.But one theme I noticed that gave the story a new meaning was the old Corps vs. new Corps feeling; the idea that anyone serving after you somehow has it easier than you did during your time. The formal, above-the-book military organization represents that "new Co [...]

    9. Such a good book!!! After recently wading through some extremely bad books, it was so awesome to read one that has everything a good book should. Compelling characters and an intriguing storyline that keeps flowing right through to the end. Can't wait to read the next in the series.

    10. Likeable characters and a nice escape from reality. Really envious of them (as it happens with every book I read).
