GAvIN DEAS Empires: First battle

Two alien invasions. Two heroes. One story. Collects Empires: Extraction and Empires: Infiltration in one volume.

This ground-breaking collaboration between two Gollancz authors tells of the invasion of Earth by two different alien races – at the same time. Two men discover the threat, and must work to sabotage the invasion and see off the aliens.

Each book introduces one hero, uncovering the threat to humanity and the world from their point of view. The books can be read in any order, but together tell the complete story of humanity caught in the crossfire between two deadly alien races who have made Earth their battleground.

Gavin Deas is the pseudonym for the collaborative writing team of bestselling Gollancz authors Stephen Deas and Gavin Smith.
