by Paul Collins
Book 3 in The Earthborn Wars
Welkin Quinn and his small community of Earthborn and Skyborn survivors face the vastly superior technology of the Hiveborn – an ancient race of parasitic aliens.
The Hiveborn possess the humans they encounter, turning them into automata, thoughtless zombies who follow the singular will of the Hiveborn Queen: this ruler is the source of the implacable Hivemind, the consciousness that desires universal domination. To survive, the human resistance is forced to leave the bowels of the New Zealand mine they call home. Their special-ops forces take the fight to the Hiveborn base centred in post-apocalyptic Melbourne, and finally to space itself.
Collins weaves a fast-paced, unpretentious narrative, particularly aimed at younger readers, culminating in a dramatic conclusion with the Hiveborn Queen.The Canberra Times
