#Review: Reconquest: Mother Earth – Carl Alves
From the moment the aliens landed, Mitch Grace’s life has never been the same. Though the creatures look harmless, there’s no telling what they’re truly like. Part of him is intrigued by these beings. So much so, that he strives to understand them. Granted, he doesn’t have much leeway in making contact with these creatures, but that doesn’t stop him from trying to do so.
An unexpected accident soon tears Mitch’s world asunder. He wakes up from a coma to find that the world is being controlled by the aliens he’d met so long ago. It’s hard for him to grasp just how much the world has changed. People live in fear, and are herded together like cattle. The aliens don’t care about anyone’s well-being, a fact he’s witnessed with his own eyes.
Determined to make a difference, Mitch sets out to change the world as he’s come to know it. The aliens must be destroyed, and he’s willing to do whatever is necessary to ensure the human race doesn’t become extinct. Though he encounters resistance at every turn, his memories are the one thing that keep him strong. He refuses to be a slave to this unknown race.
Deep inside, he knows it’s possible to retake the Earth. He just needs to be patient until such a time is possible. Surely, there are others that share the same sentiment as he does? If so, he just needs to find them. Mitch promises himself that the Earth will return to human hands. Somehow, some way, the aliens will be dealt with. Sooner or later, their reign will end by any means necessary.
A truly unique storyline, Reconquest: Mother Earth delves into a thought-provoking arc about what it’s like to live governed by beings determined to destroy the world they’ve conquered. Carl’s characters have shown that they’re determined to survive. They’ll do whatever is necessary to take back what’s theirs. Good or bad, they’ll move forward in cementing their legacies for future generations. This is the start of a great series. One, I look forward to.

SEAL Mitch Grace was among the first humans to see the aliens when they landed at the naval base where he was stationed, but like the rest of humanity, he was powerless to stop them.
Five years later, Mitch awakens from his coma under the care of an alien physician to find that aliens control the planet. Starting alone, as a one man army, he rallies the surviving humans to build a resistance movement to take the planet back from the alien conquerors. After his capture by the aliens, Mitch is forced into intergalactic slavery to become a gladiator, fighting as the sole representative of the human species. Against all odds and far from home, he lays the plans for the reconquest of his homeland.
Reconquest: Mother Earth is the thrilling combination of Red Dawn, Independence Day, and Gladiator.
