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.

Narrator is good. Story could’ve been good but.....

Alien invasion coupled with resistance requires a suspension of belief which is expected and I can cope with that.

The characters are where I have to draw the line. OMG! How a author can destroy a potentially good story by creating most of the characters impossibly stupid to the the degree of ruining the story is beyond me. Needless to say I will not be following this author. Just disgusted.

Good Story Line But is Still Lacking

Good story line with the "end of the world aliens" but the author has the two main characters more interested in romance than her getting on with the story. The romantic part just goes on an on in her mind while me the reader is saying come on already get on with the main idea of the story the world is going to hell but all this romantic fantasy is going on in her head. If I wanted so much romance I would be listening to a romance novel.

Tedious

Redundant communications on thoughts, feelings and guilt. Perfect example: story lines of action/s are over in paragraphs while emotional buildups are pages!

It was ok.

It was like watching a movie when you’ve missed the first hour. Not enough was explained to keep it engaging. Kade was the only character I cared about and why he felt anything for Bethany is beyond me because her pessimism made her uninteresting. Had I known the book featured a group of teenagers, I wouldn’t have read it since I’m not into young love/teen angst books but I managed to finish it. The narrator was the best thing about the book.

Where are the rest!?!? I love it and I am sad not to see the rest of the series. I don’t have a lot of time to pick up a book and read. I will be waiting for the next book!

Not what I expected!

Apocalyptic books are sorta my thing. We've all read about the aliens, zombies, etc. This is about an alien attack but it's an attack that is unprovoked. An attack that has been well thought out. An attack that does not affect everyone. An attack that has a few weaknesses, and the humans are trying to learn. Trying to learn how to turn the attack around. How to fight, how to win and how to win without losing their humanity. I can't wait to listen to book 2. After looking for the book 2 audiobook there is not one. I am totally upset. I am on the road a lot with my profession. I find a series I like. I listen to book 1 and want to move to 2 but Amazon does not offer book 2 or 3 on an audible format. Thanks Audible and Amazon, this is truly a dissapointment. Why do you have book 1 in an audio format then??!!!!

Not my cup of tea I'm sure.

Not into romance. Very "wordy" and not believable. Well written but no teenagers speak in this way. Narration was great and the book well written.
