The conclusion to Brendan DuBois's Dark Victory alien-invasion trilogy. New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Brendan DuBois proves that even in the most desperate of times, there are still men and women alive who will take up weapons to defend what is theirs.


Sixteen-year-old Randy Knox, a newly minted lieutenant in the U.S. Army, has been fighting the alien Creepers since he was twelve. At one point, it seemed the war would be over when the aliens’ orbital battle station had been destroyed. But now a second Creeper orbital battle station has arrived. While returning to his home unit, Randy’s convoy is ambushed. Separated from his fellow soldiers and his K-9 companion, Thor, Randy faces the ultimate horror of every American serviceman of his time: to become a prisoner of war of the aliens. 

About prequel, Red Vengeance:

“Forced into a two-front war fighting both the attacking creepers and saboteurs within his own ranks, Randy learns how far he will go to protect those he loves and defeat the Creeper menace. Red Vengeance is a worthy follow-up to Dark Victory and excellent and entertaining stand-alone. If you like action science fiction you will enjoy Brendan DuBois’ latest.”—Daily News of Galveston County
