Although the movie Independence Day captured the imaginations of millions, it also left many unanswered questions about the alien invasion. This second ID4 original novel gives fans the complete story of the courageous pilots who banded together in the Arabian desert to crush the alien City Destroyer. When Reg Thompson, an R.A.E Pilot and Instructor, survives an early attack against the apparently invulnerable City Destroyer, he retreats into the Saudi desert and hooks up with an ill-organized and fractious force of freedom fighters from the armies of several nations, including Khalid, a Saudi pilot; the beautiful Fadeela, Khalid's sister; and Faisal, the Saudi prince who is their leader. When Faisal's decision to ignore American help almost loses the war, Reg and Khalid must team up to beat the alien survivors and destroy the secret cache of biological weapons the invaders plan to unleash upon humanity. It's a hard-hitting, action-packed techno-adventure with furious rivalries, suicidal heroics, and a heart-stopping race against time to save our planet.

It came out of deep space, an alien ship one fourth the size of our moon, protected by an impenetrable force field, destroying the earth's biggest cities with cold, methodical precision. One by one, they went down: New York, Tokyo, Los Angeles -- no one knew how to stop it, no one knew exactly what it was. The army was powerless, President Whitmore was stunned, and the people were beginning to panic.
Enter a ragtag team of unsuspecting heroes who know survival isn't the main thing, it's the only thing. David Levinson, a cable man and gifted hacker who could tap into any computer system and stand it on its ear in minutes; Jasmine Dubrow, an exotic dancer and a gutsy single mom who would kill an alien barefisted to save her young son; Russell Casse, a broken-down crop duster with a weakness for Jack Daniels and hopeless causes; and Marine Captain Steven Hiller, a frustrated would-be astronaut who has the right stuff and knows it.
Although they aren't fully aware of it, the fate of what's left of the world depends on them. It will take their combined grit, intelligence and courage to survive, and to uncover a devastating UFO secret that has been hidden from the public for more than 40 years.
