It is kuh- Ray -zeeeee! This is a series but I will not be reading any more of these books.
It sports pages, it could have been under a decent editor. The Race also becomes aware of subtle support of these resistance movements by Germany, the United States, and the USSR, but as the Race are unable to prove it nothing can be done hrry stop them.
If half of them are truly female, and each female lays two eggs after becoming pregnant per ‘season’ [which would probably be twice a Tosevite year] [and there are ‘only’ turt,edove hundred fifty million female colonists out of three hundred million colonists], then that means six hundred million ‘native born’ Lizards per Tosevite calendar year!

Not to discount what the Jews [and other ‘undesirables’] experienced under the Nazis, but it got real old, real quick, constantly having the Jews referencing their experiences under the Nazis. Second Contact Colonization, Book 1 By: An incredibly long read, but still leaves you wanting more. Overall a great series that will keep you coming back for more. Not to mention less annoying. The same characters are followed, with some new ones, as the lizards engage in a Cold War of sorts upon the arrival of the Colonisation Fleet.

On the other I think that five books in we don’t need to be reminded continually that the probe the Lizards sent showed men on horseback etc Race efforts to wage a counter-insurgency war in those regions are frustrated by their lack of familiarity with such warfare and a near-total lack of support from the human population.
The book tends to be a bit repetitious at times, but the fascinating scenario kept my interest throughout. Sep 05, Gridcube rated it liked it.
