Publisher's Summary

The 5th Wave meets Beauty and the Beast in this fast-paced and heart-stopping novel about an invasion of murderous creatures and one girl fighting for her life at the end of the world.

He has no voice or name, only a rank, Eighth. He doesn't know the details of the mission, only the directives that hum in his mind.

Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall.

His job is to protect his Offside. Let her do the shooting.

Until a human kills her...

Sixteen-year-old Raven is at summer camp when the terrifying armored Nahx invade. Isolated in the wilderness, Raven and her fellow campers can only stay put. Await rescue. Raven doesn't like feeling helpless, but what choice does she have?

Then a Nahx kills her boyfriend.

Thrown together in a violent, unfamiliar world, Eighth and Raven should feel only hate and fear. But when Raven is injured, and Eighth deserts his unit, their survival comes to depend on trusting each other...

What the critics say

"Detailed settings and swift action make this novel an edge-of-your-seat page-turner. Readers who enjoy post-apocalyptic literature and interspecies unrequited love stories will be drawn in to this story immediately." (VOYA, August 2017)

"Teens will love the pace and dialogue...As Raven and Eighth find themselves on an intersecting path, readers will be sucked into humanity’s struggle to survive and the Nahx’s all too focused efforts to ensure that it doesn’t. VERDICT A first purchase for teen collections." (School Library Journal, September 2017)

Unsure

I don’t dislike this book, but I also am left feeling unsure if I like it either. The readers did a good job. I think there will be many folks who will enjoy this book, I guess this will be a multi-book series. So much is left unexplained, I am left unsettled, I may go on further in the series and hope for the best, but this didn’t beg me to keep listening.

Teen rom thriller sci do

This is, as my title suggests, for teenagers looking for a romance thriller science fiction story. I am in my fifties so zoned out during a lot of the teen angst. And felt squeamish with a 16 year old girl talking about sex , with an alien. The story does have an interesting plot with a nice, but not unexpected twist. I won’t be getting the rest of the series but don’t regret listening to this book.

Boring

Repetitive and boring with weird emotional displays. I can’t even finish this and I dragged myself to ch 35. Run.

TikTok Brought Me Here

But Prendergast and her vivid character building and story telling kept me here. Amazing sense of urgency and need. Fantastic narrative. Raven and Eighth are incredibly deep characters, each with their own flaws and yet so beautifully written. 10/10. Can't wait to dig in to the sequel.

What did I want more? Forgiveness or death?


OMG, ATFF. this book gave me all the effing feels... 5 Stars

Quick Synopsis:
Raven is sent with her Tucker (her bf) and Topher (his twin brother) to work as counselors in a wilderness camp as an alternative restitution for-I believe- arson. While they are at this camp, Earth is invaded by aliens (or Nahx as they have been dubbed). Now all of the campers are essentially hiding out there, awaiting rescue or the Nahx and their fatal darts.
Eighth is a part of that Alien force which operates under a hive mentality with one purpose: killing humans. Eighth is defective, however, and soon crosses paths with Raven.

My Spoiler Free Thoughts:
This book is about survival, loyalty, and love, and G.S. Prendergast has woven these ideals together seamlessly. I think Raven is tough, Eighth is intriguing, and their character growth and bond feels really authentic.
I know the book is being compared to Beauty and the Beast, but I just don't draw that connection between the two. The only similarity is you-are-living-with-a-different-species-you-don't-like and nothing beyond that.
I've read that the story is incredibly slow paced, but I felt for the amount of time that is passing, the pace was very appropriate and even not as slow as it could have been.

Also THE MOST AWESOME narrators ever!!!

I definitely recommend this book, and I've posted a spoiler filled review and discussion on my Instagram @whitespacebooks

Exactly what I was hoping.

Sci-fi, love and fully formed characters.
I only really listen to audiobooks now so a good performance along with a wonderful story is a must. This hit everything And more! I laughed, cried and yelled at the story. A wonderful companion to any chore or craft project.

Joy

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. I like the relationship between August and Raven and I also enjoyed the writing. I would say this is one of the best books I’ve read in a while. There are so much action so much drama and intrigue, I was left wondering whether anyone will make it out alive at the end.

A must listen!

This book needs to be made into a movie. The story line, characters, and visuals this author gives are top notch. Cant wait to read the next book!
