a sequel to The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells

Machinery looted from the abandoned capsules and war-machines has led to technological leaps forward. The Martians are vulnerable to earth germs. The Army is prepared. So when the signs of launches on Mars are seen, there seems little reason to worry. Unless you listen to Walter Jenkins, author of the bestselling War of the Worlds. He is sure that the Martians have understood their defeat, learned, adapted. He is right. Thrust into the chaos of a new invasion, Walter’s ex-sister-in-law – now divorced, a journalist, determined to find the story – must survive, escape and report on the war. And she will play a greater part in it than she could ever have predicted.”
