“The Intruders by Brian Pinkerton is my favorite book of the year so far…. I cannot recommend it more.”
— Josef Hernandez, A Reviewer Darkly
“Brian has created a world ravaged by natural disasters and the human race is to blame, which made me think maybe it’s not a bad thing to be ‘taken over’ by something else from ‘out there’. Maybe a hard reset of the Human Race is long overdue.”
— Monkey Reviews
