V: The Second Generation (2008)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

V: The Second Generation (2008) Author: Kenneth Johnson

This is a sequel to the very first mini-series and ignores V: THE FINAL BATTLE, the 80's television series and the various books/comics based on those.

It's over twenty-years later and the Visitors are still plundering the Earth. Half of the water in the oceans is gone, sucked up by the massive ships to be taken back to their own planet or used as a fuel source. Although the Visitors had decimated most of the Resistance in the late 90's, it still exists and Juliet Parrish is remains the leader. She has a twelve-year old adopted daugher, Ruby, who is a hybrid human/visitor.

In fact, Willy and Harmony, from the mini-series, have maintained their relationship in secret and have a half-breed son, Ted, as well. They are looked down on by both the humans and Visitors and are called the derogatory term "Dregs". But Ted wants to be a Visitor Teammate and ends up betraying his parents.

The Resistance does get an answer from that S.O.S. signal they sent into space at the end of the TV mini-series. This comes in the form of three human-looking aliens who are evolved from insects. The Visitor's invasion of Earth is in preparation for invading their planet and they want to stop this. The Visitors plan on turning most of those captive humans on their ships into grunt soldiers and are able to train them while they are in suspension. Then there's an emaciated, crippled prisoner that is freed from Diana's ship--who turns out to be a pain-killer addicted Mike Donovan. The book also explains what happened to teen Robin Maxwell's hybrid baby and what happened to her.

The big question remains to the Resistance if they should trust these new aliens, who are in ways even more ferocious and intimidating than the reptiles.

This is not the best-written book and reads more like an expanded screenplay, which makes sense considering that's what this was--a reboot series that never came to be. If you're a completist and need to know how V creator Kenneth Johnson ties up everything, then you have to read this.
