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, annihilating entire cities, taking control of the Earth. Isolated in
the wilderness, Raven and her friends have only a fragment of instruction from
the human resistance.

Shelter in place.

Which seems like good advice at first. 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…

My Review:

I really liked this one! The pace is slow and steady, but I thought it flowed really well. It also has two perspectives between a human named Raven and an Alien named Eighth, and the dynamic worked awesomely!

Raven felt like a real teen to me, and she did things that teens to do whether they are right or wrong. Eighth was a little emo for an alien, but it made sense the way that he was and all he had suffered. I thought the bond between them was great. Sometimes it was violent and sometimes it was sweet, but with aliens taking down humanity, it couldn’t be all flowery. I’m sure there will be some complaints about this, but it’s fiction!

The one thing out of everything that I was like noooooooo was this line… “That’s a lot of chocolate and marshmallows. Diabetes might be another way to die.” Only because sugar does not give you diabetes!

There was some cool action scenes with the aliens, but the book was more about survival and forming a bond that you didn’t know could happen when there is a war going on between two races. I loved this one, and I can’t wait for book 2!
