It is the Fourth of July. Reeling from the enemy onslaught, a few surviving military pilots gather in the Saudi Arabian desert. Two of the best fliers, flight instructors Reg and Faisal, self-appointed leaders of the Saudi Forces, can barely contain their animosity when a message from the Americans forces them to unite.

A weak point has been found in the alien "City Destroyers." The air war against them was costly--but it worked!...Or did it? Too late, Reg and Faisal discover their "victory" was an illusion--part of a secret ambush that will open the planet to unimaginable horror, unless these overmatched warriors from several Middle Eastern nations can overcome long-standing hatreds and unite against the aliens in the fiercest hand-to-hand combat of the war.

Capturing the spectacular action of the blockbuster Twentieth Century Fox film, this authorized novel adds exciting new material to the ID4 story!

Review: War in the Desert (Independence Day #3)

User Review  - Michael - Goodreads

This is one of the worst....maybe THE worst novels I have ever read. I will edit this one day when I can bring myself to dig this thing back out and post some quotes so you can actually read just how bad it is without ever having to touch it. Read full review
