Before getting this book I had never heard of John Hennessey and have never been a bit fan of alien books but I was looking for something different to try and ended up with this book on my Kindle.

The book features a group of teenagers who have managed to stay alive on Earth despite billions of other people being mysteriously taken from the planet. I don’t want this review to give away the story; but if features plenty of action and has enough twists in the book to keep you hooked, and the main teenage characters all feel like people you’ve met before or know.

I honestly didn’t expect to be as ‘into’ this book as I got and was eager to see what happened next and if there was going to be a happy ending or not. Would recommend this book happily to other sci-fi or YA readers.

I did receive this e-book as part of the LibraryThing Give-away program from the author and was asked to post an honest review.

I read the book over a couple of days, it was a bit wooden but I enjoyed it none the less. It crammed a lot in the 200 odd pages which may be why I struggled at times to follow the story, I guess the premise is that teenagers playing shoot em up computer games can use that skill in the future to kill aliens or alions. I will buy the next book if he writes it.

Took quite a while to get into this book and almost gave up – speed read past first section till characters took shape … which is something I hate to do … once into it just couldn’t put it down. Who’s it for? Anyone who admires the human trait of “were not perfect but we show courage and we never give up!” Oh and doing a review is a first for me so it must have been good.

The book was entertaining but pretty unbelievable. I think that the story was to rushed and I couldn’t accept that the youngsters could do all that.
