It had been a long hard road for Scott Bernard and his ragtag band of Robotech irregulars; but the Invid stronghold known as Reflex Point was finally close at hand, and preparations were under way for a full-scale assault.

But the Invid Regis was not about to surrender so easily the world she had come halfway across the galaxy to claim - especially now that her experiments

A touching end to a long road, and the launching point of the end.
The Robotech Third War’s last stand!


The Invid Regis conceived Ariel (aka Marlene) as a way to inflitrate Scott’s team, but she didn’t count to lose contact with her, and how Scott will impact on “Marlene”.

The Invid Regis continued having Corg and Sera, and both have been proved to be wild cards on their own particular paths, Sera isn’t certain of being in the right side of the war, and Corg enjoys just too much destruction.

Nevertheless, the Invid Regis did

Ah the Invid Invasion. Such fond memories. Unfortunately, none of them stand up under new scrutiny. 18 of these books are slightly jazzed up and smoothed over transcriptions of the TV show. Once you know this, it's impossibly not to read the books thinking "and these two chapters were this episode, and these two chapters were the next . . .". It only kind of works and in the invid invasion trilogy, becomes annoying. The plot bounces around so much. It's a bunch of short stories set in a post-apo ...more
New Generation is, by a longshot, my least favorite of the three Robotech series, but I do better with it in the novels than I do on screen. I don't know if this is because I'm most impressed by the constant attempts to combine the syndicated cartoon dialogue with edgy sci-fi swearing, or the authors' working double time to make sure that this somehow tangentially fits with the other two series, or with the fact that even something as filler fluff as Annie's birthday party is approached with a c ...more

Great series of books for kids that enjoy or are interested in science fiction. I read these books in middle school (I'm now in my 30s) and loved each one. The stories are fun, engaging and relatively fast paced. I'd be tempted to reread them now just for old time's sake if I didn't have so many new books on my to-read list.

I knocked it down a peg because, in retrospect, there are some aspects that are a bit too cheesy. I'm sure when my kids are old enough, they'll get thier own copies.

The second to last book in the RoboTech series, taking the Place of #20 in the Chronological order, ends the Invid Series and sets the stage for the final act in The End of the Circle. By this point in the series the bad taste of the Southern Cross Saga has been scrubbed away for the most part, and it sets things up rather well. Symphony of Light is a pretty good read as well, and ends the Invid Saga.

Great SiFi series. Giant battlesuits battling outer space monsters, what more can you ask for. Very recommended
