Status: Finished  |  Genre: Science Fiction  |  House: Booksie Classic
So, this is not the first book I've written, but this is the first one I will post. This book is a fanfiction based off the game XCOM: Enemy Unknown, so the experience from reading this may be enhanced from playing the game or you may think it doesn't do the game justice and hate this book. If you don't like the book and want to comment, just say "I hate it", but no insult to my writing skills or imagination if you will. If you like the book, then I hope you'll keep reading.
I'm trying to keep this short, but... This book is finished, but I'm not posting the whole thing, in case there is anything I want to change in the story. For those that enjoy this, comment what you think will happen next or what you want to happen next and who knows, I may incorporate it into the story. My upload amount and rate will be determined by you, but like I said, as long as there's only one person reading I will continue to post the original story.
I think I've said enough, so I hope you'll enjoy and hopefully keep the comments free of too much hate.

The last chapter of the very first book. For those of you that have read this from start to finish, no doubt waiting each week for new chapters, thank you. If you are disappointed with the ending, you're not alone; I have mixed feelings about how I ended this book, but it's also because I plan on a sequel: "XCOM 2". I hope you enjoyed this book, or found it amusing.
