Michael Andersen | 8 comments Hi guys.
This is waaay back when I started reading books in english. I was stationed abroad as a UN soldier and danish books were hard to get.

It´s about an alien invasion that begins with (view spoiler)

Hope one of you can help me.

Possibly the Robotech series by Jack McKinney. The first one is Genesis.

Or one of Harry Turtledove's Worldwar books. Worldwar: In the Balance

Thanks for the robotech tip, I did not know about them and I´m going to take a look at them.

And it´s not the worldwar series, read them a couple of years ago and thought they were great.

Thanks for the input.

hmmm....ok, two more suggestions:

Legion of the Damned has cyborgs that are "human minds trapped in armored killing machines."

or maybe something by David Weber?


Justanotherbiblophile | 1709 comments Yeah, it's not Robotech. They make fighting robots, not cyborgs. Because that series is basically a novelization of the Americanised anime.

I don't recall anything in Weber's oeuvre that's like that... but perhaps I've not read *everything*.

Cheryl (cherylllr) (sorry to butt in, but, you made me giggle - yeah, good luck reading 'everything' by the prolific Weber... ;)

Michael Andersen | 8 comments Hey guys.
I finally found the books I was looking for.

The writer is danish and his name is David Biltoft Davidsen. His books are called "Meta-Type: Den ultimative kriger" translated to English: Meta-type: The ultimate warrior.

Sorry for having to say that they only exist in danish.

I want to thank you all for trying to help me in my quest. Keep up the good work.
