Publisher Description

From the bestselling author of Ready Player One, now a major film directed by Steven Spielberg

' A masterful tale of Earth's desperate struggle against a powerful alien foe.' - Andy Weir, bestselling author of The Martian


It's just another day of high school for Zack Lightman. He's daydreaming through another boring math class, with just one more month to go until graduation and freedom - if he can make it that long without getting suspended again.

Until a military spaceship touches down outside his school, and Zack learns that Armada - the alien invasion video game he plays every day of his life - is secretly a recruitment program for the pilots who will save the world.

Because the aliens are real. And they're coming.

But even as Zack and his new comrades scramble to prepare for the invasion, Zack starts to recognise things - elements from the sci-fi movies, shows and games he grew up with - and the whole scenario begins to feel... familiar...

Adventure, action and a dizzying world of pop-culture nostalgia - Ready Player One author Ernest Cline does it again!
