Synopsis

Only the completely original and unalloyed Jeapesian imagination could think of launching a full-scale alien invasion right into the middle of the English Civil War. Oliver Cromwell’s New Model Army, as well as a young King Charles II, face the full might of the powerful Holekhors as alien airships fly in the skies over 17th-century London.

This is an extraordinary and thrilling novel, entirely original, and based in one of the most interesting periods of English history. Read about what might have happened in the 17th century—life could have been very different for us all. . . .
