Brooke Ehly –
The series continues with this book where we see the struggle to survive an attack from all directions. I really enjoyed this book and hope the next will be released soon.

This is Book 3 of a trilogy, but since it ends on a cliffhanger, I can only hope that the author decides to continue the story!
If you don’t want to know what happens, quit reading this review now! SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
All of the characters who have survived so far are back in this book. There are now two races of aliens, called the Order (the good guys) and the Scourge (the bad guys), who are invading Earth. The Order is trying to find a new planet away from the Scourge since the Scourge’s favorite food is the Order. The Scourge have to be one of the most frightening beings that I have read in a long, long time. Nothing seems to be able to stop them and their appetite is never ending. Their whole reason for living seems to be to eat either humans or the Order. The Order appears to be trying to help the humans survive while trying to save themselves as well.
Our beloved characters from the previous books finally seem to have gotten smarter and not so trusting. You have some young girls, teenaged boys with attitude, evil biker gangs, a dog named Max that somehow has managed to survive and a growing romantic relationship or two. You also have a pretty badass Japanese gentleman who knows how to use a machine gun. All in all, a bunch of great characters that you hope will be able to survive (except for the Crusaders….you just want them to die a violent death!).
I was expecting this book to wrap up the story, but it doesn’t. Instead, you have a surprise ending that definitely leaves the reader wanting more. This trilogy has progressed into a totally different direction than I thought it would when I first started reading it and the writer’s skill has progressed as well. She has written a book that is definitely one to either scare you or give you nightmares!
This book does have quite a bit of cursing, so if that is offensive, steer clear. But, to be honest, who wouldn’t be cursing if they were being pursued by aliens who want to make you their lunch!
The narrator does a great job and really added a lot to my enjoyment of the book. I was given a chance to listen to the audiobook version of this book through Audiobook Worm and chose to review it.
