About this title

Synopsis:

In 1984 Kenneth Johnson stunned the television world with his enormously popular miniseries of alien invasion, V. The V novelisation was a bestseller. Now, to the delight of millions of fans and a new generation who have yet to discover the power of V, Johnson has written the exciting conclusion of his epic thriller. Suffering under the lash of the alien Visitors' control, the human underground have risked their lives for decades as they desperately try to find ways to thwart their reptilian overlords' dire plan. For while the Visitors claim to be Earth's friends, they instead seek only to exploit our planet's lifeblood-water-and slaughter all humankind.But now the Underground has hope, because our call for help, sent out to the stars long ago, has been answered by agents of another alien race. They have come to Earth, to aid the Underground in defeating the Visitors. But even as the humankind and our new allies work with the Underground to forestall the culmination of the Visitors' terrible plan, the question remains: Can our new alien friends really be trusted? Or will they help us to defeat one alien oppressor merely to become our new masters?The enormous success of the original miniseries and the long wait for a worthy sequel has created a vast audience that will flock to this exciting new thriller. This pulse-pounding novel will keep readers riveted as it rockets toward a stunning conclusion both satisfying and utterly unexpected.

Review:

Praise for the miniseries "V"
"A space age version of "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich." - Kenneth Clark, UPI
" ... The best kind of science fiction: the kind that makes you think about the meaning of life on Earth. 'V' is a morality tale, a story of how people react in the face of overwhelming tyranny. It's prime-grade television." - Nick Coleman, Minneapolis Star & Tribune
" 'V' harbors a great deal of relevant social commentary on our misuse of water, our dependence on mass-communication, our commercialization of daily life ... Perhaps comparing it to Orwell may be reaching a bit, but it certainly is superior commercial television fare." - Christian Science Monitor
" ... Best miniseries in more than a year.& nbsp; Kenneth Johnson ... knows how to make magic ... " - Lee Winfrey, Philadelphia Inquirer
'V' makes a mesmerizing nightmare." - Tom Shales, Washington Post
" 'V' - Victorious as sci-fi miniseries ... Dazzling ... An intelligent, imaginative, engrossing four hour drama. 'V' is a thought provoking, sometimes shocking drama that keeps the viewer engaged." - Kay Gardella, New York Daily News
"Right at the top we know that 'V' isn't just another fling at science fiction - it is nothing less than a retelling of history - the rise of the Nazis done as a cautionary science fiction fable. Fortelevision this is probably a first. It is by politics and ideology that you will know 'V'." - John Corry, New York Times
" ... Kenneth Johnson and his very good cast and technicians succeed in giving us an imaginative first-class thriller of substance and social significance." - Judith Crist, TV Guide
" ... Absolutely stunning ... a riveting tale that is utterly convincing and compelling." - Newark Star-Ledger
"It has epic heroes in Marc Singer as a rebelling TV cameraman and Faye Grant as the leader of the Los Angeles underground ... It has swell heavies in Andrew Prine and Jane Badler ... And it is thoughtful enough to involve viewers on more than one level." - Howard Rosenberg, Los Angeles Times

" ... Highly impressive, an enormously engrossing experience. An unusually ambitious and compelling TV venture." - Los Angeles Herald Examiner
" 'V' is a brilliant piece of television ... " - St. Louis Post Dispatch
