“Maybe the invasion of the Cray was the best thing that could have happened to us.
Regardless whether you believe this, we have an undeniable clean slate.
What are we going to do with it?”
Weston Ochse’s Task Force OMBRA series continues with Grunt Traitor...
Their spies were among us for years. They mapped our infrastructure, learned our weaknesses, until, finally, they flipped the switch and threw us back into the Dark Ages.
Only OMBRA and its battalions around the world seem capable of defending Earth from the next wave of attack—terraforming.
But at what price can we gain our freedom? The Crays are pushing the human race to the edge of extinction, and we will have to learn new ways of living to defeat this threat.
This is a time for heroes. For killers. For Grunts.
Benjamin Carter Mason will question his identity, his beliefs and his mission as he dives deep into the heart of an alien transformed Los Angeles. And in the end, he might be the last person on Earth defending not just our lives, but our humanity.
Grunt Traitor is an exhilarating and action-packed adventure from one of the finest and most authentic voices in military SF. Fast paced, deliciously dark and battle-hardened, Grunt Traitor’s gripping post-invasion storyline and sensitive handling of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder single it out as a must-read for lovers of the genre.
Bursting with combat, intrigue and pop culture references, Ochse encapsulates the thrill and horror of war and the effects it has on combatants with little choice but to fight. Gritty, imaginative and breathlessly entertaining, Grunt Traitor is an adrenaline-fuelled terror trip through an American landscape decimated by strange invaders, and an assured step forward for the Task Force OMBRA series.
Grunt Traitor is the second title in the ongoing Task Force OMBRA series, and is available in print and eBook, UK, US and Canada
