The Cockroach Crusade (Sic Transit Terra Book 5)
The Corvou are swarming, and they’re headed for Earth.
When a botched first contact at Daisy Hub results in a declaration of war against Humanity by an alien race, battle lines are drawn. Not that they’re likely to be respected by an enemy determined to wipe out every Human they can find. As the Terran government scrambles to prepare for an attack they fear no one will survive, Drew Townsend and his crew of maverick geniuses set to work, trying to find a way to prevent it. Fortunately, the fiercest warriors in the galaxy will be fighting on their side. But will that be enough to save the Human race from annihilation?

"THE COCKROACH CRUSADE is an even faster, wilder ride than its predecessor novels in the Sic Transit Terra series. I loved it, and if space opera fills you with awe and wonder, you will too! Some tales are sheer FUN, and this is one of them!" - Ed Greenwood, award-winning creator of the bestselling Forgotten Realms setting
"Great Characters and Story. The story world continues to evolve and the characters grow with it. This episode shows how the best intentions can lead to war." - K. Counihan
"This book includes a countdown clock to doomsday, which immediately drew me into the story. It is a wonderful rhetorical device used to convey immediacy, and you can feel the suspense ramping up as doomsday goes from over a year, to months, to hours." - Chris
"The excellent style and word-crafting of the author continues the tale into book 5." - Dave P"
