|Plot Summary of The Tenth Planet|
After a deep-space satellite mysteriously stops transmitting, the Hubble III telescope picks up a startling image. Astronomers don't know what the strange object is--only that it orbits past Earth every two millennia.
Meanwhile, archaeologist Leo Cross has discovered peculiar layers of black residue at dig sites around the globe. Stranger still, these thin bands occur like clockwork every 2,006 years, coinciding with some of the world's darkest moments in history.
We have six months to prepare for the next arrival. This time we know something is coming. This time we have weapons to defend us.
This time we'll be wrong . . . again.
This is honestly the best Sci-Fi series I have ever read. Full of drama, action, and tons of unknowns. This book takes the typical alien invasion story and turns it on it's head. Instead of aliens bent on world domination, they are after Earth's natural resorces which their planet is now devoid of. You see the conflict from both sides, on earth with the humans preparing for the unknown, and the aliens, preparing for their bi-millenia harvest, before they go to the fringes of the solar system for another 2000 years. An incredible beginning to a exciting and thought provoking new Sci-Fi trilogy.
