America is at war—and five teens are caught in the crossfire.

It began with a virus. Then a series of attacks erupted across the nation. Now the true invasion has begun, and a handful of teenagers with impossible powers are America’s only defense.

Loving the first book, I was ready to take on the sequel. Who isn’t ready to read a book about war? One can only image that this book is going to have action in it and I am not wrong. I felt that this book brought it to the table and it expanded from the first book making it a best day.

The book was so eventful and the plot was exciting. I felt the book moved easy and the story was enjoyable. The characters and supporting characters brought something to the book and the idea of different point of views made this book easy to see from all sides.

The idea of children being affected by a “virus” and it giving the kids powers seems like other books that I have read but I felt the originality throughout the novel.  Wells made it a point to make it his story and I feel that you are constantly seeing this through the novel.

The ending was a good ending. Wells writes yet another great book to capture my attention. I hope that people take the time to read this series and see what it does for you. A riveting novel.

Happy Reading!

    I love books with superpowers and viruses and they’re rarely both in the same book so I guess I need to read this series haha. Sounds like a really intense and action packed read, too! 🙂

    I was going to say that it sounds similar to others. I’m glad to hear that it wasn’t really and had it’s own unique take on things.

  4. Hm… might have to check this one out. I like the idea of seeing all sides. Brilly review!
