|Plot Summary of The Apocalypse Troll|
Humans battle against another race (Kangas) in the future, and in a desperate move the Kangas attempt to go back in time to destroy their enemy (humans) before their technology has evolved enough to defend themselves. The main character (Aston) is supported by Ludmilla Leonova, a female fighter pilot from the future military. She is the only survivor of the force that tries to stop the Kangas from going into the past (she was brought along back through time with the invading Kanga force).
The story is about the two humans fighting the remaining Kanga force on a near-future earth. Convincing the modern governments and militaries of the world to believe the threat exists and the steps the world takes in fighting the invading Kangas.
This was my first David Webber book, but I am looking forward to many more!
