    1. This was a very strange book. Apparently there are some humans out there who are getting ready to be invaded (presumably in the sequel). This book is not about the humans. This book is about the aliens who are going to be doing the invading.The alien Kren is born with some unusual mutations making him unusually smart and strong. He takes over the world.

Too bad, I was strangely sort of enjoying it. RIP, Leo [...]
