An increble story of man fighting aliens, and the inevitable enslaving of a planet

The Masters Saga is definately the least favorite part of Robotech among fans, as it unfairly had to connect two seperate tv shows which it wasn't related to itself. The books try to cement the three eras, but this means that the novels depart from the tv show quite a bit (such as the stray "dog" Dana finds is her pet, and the eccentric Professor Lazlo Zand being examples). Overall it is still decent, but definately not a continuation of Macross that most people are expecting.
