Présentation de l'éditeur

In the stunning conclusion to the Matchstick Man saga that began with Event and continued with Legacy, the End of Days is upon humanity---invasion has arrived!


Some speculate that the war between the two worlds began 700 million years ago, while others say it started in 1947 over a small town in New Mexico called Roswell. Regardless of dates, the war is now upon us, and after centuries of watching, the enemy attacked. The plans of a million years are finally ready for what we have always known was coming---Armageddon.


As world allies fall to the wayside, a growing political faction from several nations sends a clear signal that cooperation between the superpowers and the lesser states cannot succeed. As nations start a mad scramble to realign their military structures, the war begins silently in the depths of the oceans, and flares to global brightness with the first military strike in history between two different worlds. Only one element in the arsenal of the world can possibly give Earth a fighting chance at survival---a small being that has already saved the world once in the Arizona desert is now called upon to outthink his former masters---the Matchstick Man.


While Matchstick Man searches for the real motivation behind the invasion, the Event Group is the one entity that refuses to accept the inevitable defeat of humankind. They've learned that the answer to this war has always been here on earth buried deeply in our ancient past, and that they may even hold the clue to salvation inside their own artifact vault. But with the devastating loss of its military arm and one of their leaders, Colonel Jack Collins, the group is being torn apart by internal conflict and devastating personal decisions. Even worse, the group's old enemies have returned to take revenge, and the worst fears of Department 5656 are realized---a breach in security allows intruders to get at the secrets inside the complex in Nevada.


Can the group come together to defeat their enemy and defend the planet? As the war wages on, countries fall, nations fight to the last man, and the fate of the planet depends on a few good men and women in this action-packed thrill ride from New York Times bestselling author David L. Golemon.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Overlord Does not Disappoint 19 juillet 2014
Par Roxanne Lewis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I have awaited this book and the author did not disappoint. This is a wild ride through the alien apocalypse like you would not believe. I was disappointed with COl Collins goal of murdering the killer of his sister rather than bringing him to justice--something I believe a man with his integrity and commitment would do, but the author chose another path so I am anxious to see in future volumes, if there are any, how this will be played out. Henri; he is as he is. And I hope some future volume will resolve the loss of one of the most heroic characters now lost in the past. I struggled to put this book down as my daily life is filled with other projects and other commitments, but I took my Kindle with me and every free moment I had, including some earmarked for rest, wound up devoted to the adventure of the Event group. I heartily recommend this to any fan of military, espionage, apocalyptic, or Alien wars. Like the Operation Overlord from WWII, this story is worth the time.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Love the Series... Wish the Main Character was Better 28 juillet 2014
Par C. Serafini - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
What is fun about these books is the over-the-top situations. The event group series takes us through many mythologies and histories... Filled with action and imagination. I really enjoy reading the series.

There is one thing that continually takes me out of each of these stories... The character of Jack Collins.

Jack Collins role at the event group has been that of chief of security. Unfortunately, during his tenure the event group complex has been breached at least twice. That alone suggests his security measures have not been effective... When you consider the decades the event group complex has existed without having been breached, this failure becomes even more significant.

In one of the recent books before Overlord, Jack Collins is the one who has a tracker placed on him by an enemy agent. Jack Collins doesn't even realize he is carrying the tracker that leads the enemies directly to event group complex. Seriously... The head of security has no countermeasures for a simple tracking device?

I mention all of this to support what I'm about to say. In the story we are asked to believe that Jack Collins is one of the most elite, strategic leaders the world has to offer. In this story alone so much is placed on his shoulders to lead the defense of earth. Unfortunately, there really isn't any evidence in this series to suggest Jack Collins is particularly suited for such a role.

In this story alone, Jack Collins spends more than half the book either seeking out to murder the person who killed his sister, defying orders to the contrary, riding in planes to a destination he is clueless about and put in charge of executing on a plan he is completely in the dark about.

Even in this book, we don't see anything in Jack Collins behavior to suggest he is the leader that the world needed during the crisis presented in the story. What we are given is the opinions of other characters that Jack Collins is this amazing leader. What they reference as evidence is his behavior in previous stories.

But if you go back over those stories and really analyze Jack Collins performance, you see a person who does not lead, jumps into conflict situations without a plan and typically only survives by luck not strategy.

I really do enjoy reading these stories, but I find myself having to make significant suspensions of disbelief in order to accept Jack Collins' character as a leader.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Really could use an editor! 4 août 2014
Par marsin2010 - Publié sur Amazon.com

The story itself proceeded in acceptable fashion but the editorial production of the book was horrible. Time after time the jerk Speaker of the House is called SENATOR (whatever his name was). Was anyone paying attention to continuity in this book? One cannot be a Senator AND be Speaker of the House of Representatives. There were numerous instances where absurd numbers were thrown out that simply made no sense in the context given. Number of personnel, number of casualties, number of ship based weapons, illogical distances in space.

David, you write awesome stories and this is no less than brilliant, except.... How can the Hubble satellite takes photos of the Grays spacecraft - which are "many thousands of lightyears distant" in real time? Time paradox? Not in this universe I'm afraid. Other than a couple of other not well considered situations of similar ilk, it was still a great story.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Over Indulgent Battle Scenes 23 août 2014
Par Juliette Bravo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I'm not sure what happened here. I want to give any Event Group novel more stars, but this one just didn't cut it for me. In the eight prior Event Group books, there has been the benefit of plot and character development. In his zeal to wrap up an ongoing story introduced in the very first novel, Golemon seems to have dumped all of that out the window for the sake of battle scene after battle scene. The descriptions of military hardware got so indulgent after a while that I just started skimming through the battle scenes in order to try to get to the point. As in any action adventure, the point was that the good guys were over-matched until they were not. Big surprise.

The climactic battle in space, however, lost me completely. I'm really not clear on exactly how it went down. I had a hard time following exactly what was going on, and didn't quite understand how I was intended to end up feeling afterward. One minute they're all saying goodbye, then they're together again, then it hits the fan, then it's over and we're back on Earth sitting at the table.

The most interesting piece in this novel was the Speaker of the House who is inserted into the Presidency. The man has his own agenda, one completely removed from the events going on around him and manages to add to the extraordinary body count through his own mismanagement of military assets. I'm not sure of Golemon's political leanings, he makes a point to say that certain characters are strict constitutionalists, but the picture in my mind was of the grumbling, screaming John McCain trying to be the King of the Military and cutting down anyone who got in his way.

Spoilers....the end result after everything was that several members of the Event Group died, Everett was sent into the past, as was already known, Jack finally got vengeance for his sister's murder, and our Frenchman is in the wind and available to help or hinder once again. I suspect the time travel will play a part in future novels, and we may again see some of those who were lost. All in all, I didn't feel like the book needed to be as long as it was to get to the point at which Golemon left things.
