People in London are being taken away in unmarked police vans, never to be seen again...

While trying to keep up with his school studies and ensuring his football team stays top of the league, it's Johnny's job to safeguard planet Earth.

Suspicious of the strange occurrences, Johnny investigates to find that alien enemies are feeding humans to their Queen on a nearby planet. He then discovers a more terrifying secret: the aliens are planning a devastating invasion of Earth.

The battle for Earth will take all of Johnny's and his friends' strength and resolve. Can they win? If they do, what price will they pay to save the world?

Praise For Johnny Mackintosh: Battle for Earth

"It must be hard to write a sequel to a book that was so good and get it right . . . shades and echoes of those sci-fi novels I used to read as a kid: Asimov, Clarke, Moorcock and Dick. . . . great characters, action, mystery and adventure."  Bookbag on Johnny Mackintosh: Star Blaze
