Includes an exclusive diary entry from Cassie!
The enemy is Other. The enemy is us. They‚??re down here, they‚??re up there, they‚??re nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us.
But beneath these riddles lies one truth: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion people who used to live on our planet. Betrayed first by the Others, and now by ourselves.
In these last days, Earth‚??s remaining survivors will need to decide what‚??s more important: saving themselves . . . or saving what makes us human.

I didn't have much hope for this book after I found the infinite sea to be a disappointment. However this book surprised me and had a reasonable ending.
The more I think about it isn't the ending extremely similar to the divergent series? ( )

Rick Yancey is such a talented writer and has an amazing ability to create characters you care deeply for. Some of the scenes in this just ripped me to pieces. No words. ( )

I wanted to finish this series just to find out how the alien invasion is stopped but I am annoyed by all these characters and their choices that I have to stop. ( )

"I thought they were gone, I thought I had lost them, but you never lose those who love you, because love is a constant; love endures."

This. Series.

I think it's safe to say YA Dystopia still has a hold on my heart. Which conveniently has a Poundcake, Teacup, Dumbo and Cassie size hole in it now. ( )
