Earthfall is a sci-fi adventure by Mark Walden. The boy ran down the rain-soaked street, weaving between abandoned cars.
He crouched behind one of the vehicles and tried to quiet his laboured breath. At first he heard nothing, but then behind the noise of the falling rain he made out another sound — one that in recent months he had learned to fear. So starts Earthfall. This book has more pace than a Ferrari on an autobahn. Pre-apocalypse Chapter four jumps back eighteen months. Sam is a normal teenager … apart from the experimental implant in his head to control his epileptic fits.
And then the aliens arrive. Everyone except Sam falls under their control. Sam passes out from his injury from the alien creature and wakes up in a secret hideout deep in the London underground where Rachel is hiding.
There are several other teenagers also unaffected by the aliens strange mind control. Can only teenagers resist the aliens? Umm, no. Photo by The U. I thought that was a shame.
Post-training After that, our hero joins the others as they search for a way to rid the Earth of the invaders. Do we get an explanation for all this madness?
Without giving spoilers, Walden answered most of my questions and set the ending up nicely for the following books in the series. The final verdict. This is a book for boys and girls alike. I particularly liked that the male and female characters were equal partners in the fight and were both capable or taking the lead and blasting aliens when necessary.
However, his website was a little disappointing. He also qualifies to be included as my entry into the British Books Challenge for July.

Book Review: Earthfall by Mark Walden
Sam awakens to see strange vessels gathered in the skies around London. As he stares up, people stream past, walking silently toward the enormous ships, which emit a persistent noise. Only Sam seems immune to the signal. Six months later, he is absolutely alone. Or so he thinks.
