Summary:

The star Mira was unpredictably variable. Sometimes it was blazing, brilliant and hot. Other times it was oddly dim, cool, shedding little warmth on its many planets. Gresth Gkae, leader of the Mirans, was seeking a better star, one to which his ""people"" could migrate. That star had to be steady, reliable, with a good planetary system. And in his astronomical searching, he found Sol.

With hundreds of ships, each larger than whole Terrestrial spaceports, and traveling faster than the speed of light, the Mirans set out to move in to Solar regions and take over.

And on Earth there was nothing which would be capable of beating off this incredible armada—until Buck Kendall stumbled upon THE ULTIMATE WEAPON

    Interesting story but the reader had an unusual style that I did not care for. I hate to criticize volunteers but this was a significant challenge for me

    Thought provoking. How would we react to a threat like this. How would THEY act and react to our response. Also liked new pre-sequels (1, 2, soon 3) to ENDER's GAME for the same reason.
