A COMBAT VETERAN FIGHTS GIANT INSECTS TO PREVENT HUMAN EXTINCTION.

COMBAT VETERAN JOEL BIRCHARD IS DETERMINED TO PREVENT THE ALIENS FROM COMPLETING THEIR CONQUEST OF EARTH EVEN IF IT MEANS THROWING ROCKS AT THEM.

Most of the Earth's population is annihilated during the initial attack, and the few survivors find that nothing electrical will work. With time, remnants of the military began to organize resistance to what everyone thinks was an alien invasion, but no one is sure until a spaceship is discovered in the Midwest. Defended by giant flying insects with energy weapons controlled by a master intelligence, the aliens carry out their harvest collections by setting massive fires over the entire Earth. How can humans without electronics or nuclear weapons fight such a foe? Combat veteran Joel Birchard fights a merciless enemy intent on the extinction of humanity.

“War of the Planet Burners has the feel of classic post-disaster SF novels, such as John Wyndham's The Day of the Triffids, in which a small fragment of humanity struggles to survive against both technological challenges and genocidal, inhuman attackers.”—Jane Lindskold, author of the Artemis Awakening and Artemis Invaded series.

“If you want to transport yourself into an expanse of space and time on planet Earth where technology has been ripped away and survival teeters on the knife edge of the impossible, you must read Dennis Herrick’s novel, War of the Planet Burners. Once you meet Joel, learn of his miraculous survival, see him clinging to threads of life along with others like him, you will have to follow him to the end of the conflict against the machine and those who mistakenly created it.”—Craig L. Andrews, author of Sky Fishing and other
novels.
"War of the Planet Burners is an exciting Sci-Fi book about alien invasion of Earth and the desperation of a handful of human survivors fighting to avoid extinction in a world without electricity. An action-packed story that you won't be able to put down."—Brian Gilmore, retired Navy captain, aviator, and enthusiastic Sci-Fi fan.

“War of the Planet Burners is science fiction at its best. A battle with interplanetary dimensions pits the brains and courage of Earth’s humans against an interplanetary force of a scientifically more advanced species in a struggle over who will ultimately own the small planet on which we live. Earth’s military and civilians combine resources, even though deprived of the majority of our current technology, in an exciting story that kept my interest all the way through.”—Jack Ellis, retired Air Force officer, electrical engineer, and an avid sci-fi fan.
