Summary

The world didn't end with a bang, it didn't go out in a ball of fire and fury, nor did it end in ice. But in some strange way, ice was the end - or maybe it was the beginning of something more.

When Bethany finds herself suddenly alone in a world that was alive only moments before, she flees into the streets of her town in search of her family. Panicked by the immobile people surrounding her, she is almost captured by the monsters hunting her until Cade steps in.

Dark and distant, most people at Bethany's school are wary of Cade yet oddly fascinated by him. Bethany and he had been close as children, but it has been years since she's had any real contact with him. As their situation becomes even more perilous, Bethany struggles to come to terms with her past, her terrifying new reality, and her growing love for a boy that is powerful, mysterious, and perhaps even more frightening than the aliens hunting them - aliens that want more than their lives: they want their blood.

nice story, surprised for a free download!!

I downloaded this book free and added audio for £2.99 which was a bargin so I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised by how good the storyline was. definitely more for teenagers but was a good listen. The narrator did a decent job of the male and female voices and didn't over sell it... if you liked The Fifth Wave youĺl definitely get along with this book. I’m so impressed I got it for free on Kindle and added the audio at such a reduction... great offer, great listen.... I’m off for book 2.

The world ends and THIS is who lived?!?

The concept was great and I tried to give the book a fair chance but I hated every single character.

Everyone is dumb other than Kade who happens to be teenaged Rambo from Cape Cod? Bethany had THE lowest self-esteem and confidence ever. Something inexplicable happens to her world and shes worried about her family UNTIL Kade's smoldering gaze locks on hers? Her sister cries through 88% of the book and her older brother is useless.

Teenagers aren't this stupid and these characters does them an injustice. Whew, glad to get this off my chest.

Good story but annoying main character

The main character is the typical supporting character that gets people killed. She is extremely annoying and has no sense of self preservation. Her sister is just as terrible. Imagine being hunted by aliens and screaming the whole time or just standing in plain sight. I would honestly leave both behind. The narrator does weird accents for a few of the characters which pulls you away from the story.

Poorly written unless you like pointless dribble

The narrative voice was so very bad I wanted to stab a ice pick into my ears. It's horribly written. Teenage whiny book. How this was published is byond me.

Ok but not gripping

Premise was ok but no real attachment to characters. Moved a little slow also, maybe for younger readers, like teens.

This was painful to listen to

I never leave bad reviews. This was torture to listen to these girls whine and carry on. Screaming and talking loud putting everyone in danger. The actual monsters were an interesting story line as well as the relationship between Bethany and Cade. The rest sucked. I stuck with it hoping it would get better.

Good story, awful narration

While this book has an interesting premise, the narrator’s voice is off putting and at times incredibly irritating. I have listened to several less than desirable narrators with audible, but have never experienced one that made me want to stop a book altogether. I really struggled to finish the book, and while the story is interesting I don’t think I can push through a sequel if narrated by the same person.

Ravenous

Action packed and enjoyable! I noticed that book 2 is not available in audio! They leave you in a cliffhanger ending and then I can't buy the next audio book in the series.

AT isn't a cute little friend.

I really enjoyed this book. It was totally different than my usual fare. I can't wait to hear the next one. Well done.
