17-year-old Ari lives in a dystopian society, where every night aliens come to every human's bedroom and suck antibodies from them.
Ari is in training to be the next engineer commander after her father, but doesn't expect to find herself in the middle of yet another war - the aliens claim they're peaceful and want to coexist, but the government wants to get rid of them anyway.
Can humans and aliens coexist? Can Ari be what her parents want her to be? And is she falling for the alien that comes to her room every night?
This was a brilliant sci-fi dystopian, and I really liked it.
Ari was a girl whose parent's had always expected a lot of her, and had been training her since she was tiny, grooming her to become the next Engineer Commander. She trained constantly, and always did what she was told. I liked how when the situation called for it she did what she needed to do, and went against everything that she had ever been taught, because she trusted her gut to know what was really right, even if it wasn't what her parents would want her to do.
I liked the storyline in this book. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting, which was good because it had some really unique ideas. I thought the whole thing about the aliens needing antibodies was very interesting, and I liked how the author managed to mix real-life science with the science of the aliens.
I liked the tension in this book, and I liked how there was both action and romance. The story had good pace and flowed really well, and although there were a couple of points that were maybe a little shaky I was able to look past these because I was enjoying the story so much.
I thought the ending was pretty good, and I'm really looking forward to the next book in this series!
Overall; brilliant sci-fi dystopian story.
9 out of 10.
