I have been a fan of the Reality Bleed series since the beginning and I can truly say these books just get better and better. Earth Siege is the 8th book to come out so far and this one is definitely a "just one more chapter" kind of book. The story moves at a fast pace with exciting take no prisoner kind of players, a bit of gruesome along with the quirky humor I love in JZ Foster's stories. Once again I reach the end of book and look forward to the next installment of this series. Earth Siege is book that can be read on its own but I would highly recommend starting with the first book Hell on Mars where you can first meet these players and you can follow along their journey as they take on the war against the aliens.
Reality Bleed is STILL absolutely the best aliens vs humans series, ever! These are books that you can read multiple times and find another plot just waiting to be developed. I had pre-ordered Earth Siege when it was first available. As I was reading the book, I kept thinking how I would hate that the series was ending. I'm not one to look ahead so I was pleasantly surprised to see Book 9, Hell on Earth, is in the works. Can't wait!
This series hooked me from book one! I began this series after reading a similar, and pretty good, one called "Dark Galaxy" series by P.W. Hillard. If sci-fi horror is your thing, this is for you. The characters, plot, and dialogue are all well done. Was I extremely entertained? Yes, and that is my main criteria. Stop reading my review, and read these novels immediately!

J.Z. Foster is such a talented author and delivers another “OMG” book. I never know whether to put on my black funeral dress and sit with a box of tissues or wear my #1 foam finger to cheer on my favorite characters. Expect the unexpected. This book is imaginative, terrifying, funny, thought provoking, and keeps the reader glued to the story from page one. You will read it in one sitting, not because you want to, because you have to.
I'm not a huge fan of serial type books, but I make an exception for the Reality Bleed books. There is wonderful character development, great pacing, lots of action, and a solid plot. You will fall in love with these characters. I adore Alice and her courage. I love Endo and his honor and loyalty. Another great book by J.Z. Foster!
