A solid sci-fi story saddled with a fantasy genre name
Just seeing the title of this book you would assume that David Weber's first solo novel is all about ogres, witches and elves. The cover shows differently, of course. The Apocalypse Troll is an action-packed bit of sci-fi that includes time travel, a threat to planet earth and a lovely lady.
Here are the plot basics: an alien race from the future lands on earth in an effort to destroy it and humans from the future arrive in an effort to stop them. But, their defense was less than successful so current day humans are left to fight on with the advice of a surviving human from the future. l
I rate this book 4 stars out of 5.
This book can be found on Amazon.com here: The Apocalypse Troll
