Two bright geometric shapes, metallic flashes picked out in the morning sun, moving impossibly fast and straight amidst the visual clutter and chaos of forest and rock...
'Is it dragons, Dave, is that what it is? Because I'm not ready for dragons...'
A dragon brings down the Vice President's plane, a monster army is camped outside Omaha, and an empath demon springs an undercover operation in New York.
New Orleans was just the beginning. New and different demons are breaking through all over America, and Dave Hooper has a new enemy with more guile and guts than the celebrity superhero, still stumbling in his role as Champion. While his agent fields offers for movies and merchandise, Dave is tasked with ending a siege in Omaha, saving his friends and deciphering the underrealms' plans to take over the earth.
As an ancient and legion evil threatens to destroy mankind, Dave has to decide what kind of man he wants to be and the nature of his role in this new world. He may not be the hero humanity deserves, but he's the only one we've got.

Book Review: Resistance by John Birmingham - Reviewed by WilliamS748 (05 Oct 2015)
I must group all three of Dave/Monsters. I have just finished all three in order. I found them interesting, enjoyable and hard to stop reading once started. I would recommend all three to anyone. I sincerely hope there are more in the works. Afterall, it was left in such a manner that more should be coming. The character development was superb. In addition, the action was well described and developed. I compare this series favorably along side of such works by Larry Correia (Monster Hunter, 5 books). As with those, these three books mesh tremendously and leave the reader with desire for more.
