Nicely descriptive with a skillful balance of gore, terror and a smidgen of dark humour. I must admit that I had to re-read a couple of sections to make sure I grasped some of the 'tech-speak' but then again, I am slightly older than the 'target' audience - I struggle with the instructions for my mobile phone!
Overall a good engaging read. Bring on the next one!
It started off as a signal. Then they came and enslaved humanity.
In the world of Sam Riley, there is danger everywhere: alien ships, Drones, mindless human slaves. To make everything worse, supplies are running low and after an almost fatal run-in with a Drone, Sam has a seriously infected wound.
All alone, Sam doesn't know why he's immune to the mind-enslaving signal or whether he's the last free-willed human left.
Until he's rescued by a band of teen survivors just like him - also immune to the signal. It's only then that he discovers the truth behind the invasion and how it started.
And starts to fight back...
A book for fans of V and Falling Skies, Earthfall sucked me in from the word go. I love all of the H.I.V.E. books so couldn't wait to get my hands on Earthfall! It didn't disappoint! There was alien action, mind control, a group of teen rebels and constant suspense and action; I just sped through the book, unable to put it down. It may not have been the most complex book, but it was an addictive, suspenseful, utterly enjoyable read that I loved to pieces. I think H.I.V.E. and alien-post-apocalyptic-world lovers will love this just as much as I did!
I loved all the characters because they were all unique and really real. I loved Sam, who was brave and practical and very relatable (unlike Otto from H.I.V.E., who's a freakin' genius). Sam was a natural leader, a boy just trying to survive in a broken world. I really liked Rachel, `cause she was kickbutt, snarky and an ace with a gun! Jay was brilliant too, with his snark and cheekiness and funniness - also, you just gotta love the Jay Plans! I really loved was the band of rebels, how they stuck together and how they teased each other.Read more ›
Its a childrens book but doesnt read like a childrens book if that makes sense.
This is about Sam, a teenager who lives with his mom and dad and older sister.
One day Sam wakes up and all the people in the world have turned into zombified drones, unable to speak or communicate and alien ships have landed in most of the major citys in the world.
18 months later, Sam is forced to live in the sewers to stay safe, only coming out at night for fear of being caught by the hunters, a robotic alien life force.
One day however Sam discovers that he is not as alone as he might think.
The story then turns into ALien vs Human action, the resistance fighting against them and what happens.
The big twist regarding Sam i didnt see coming and and the author has set the book up for a sequel which i am happily going to buy to find out what hapens next.
In my opinion Syfy should buy the options to this and turn it into a tv show, it would be fantastic.
I can already see someone like Taylor Lautner or Nathan Cress as Sam.
Would very happily recommend to anyone over the age of 10 as there is no sex scenes or swearing.
There are thrills, spills, sophisticated gadgets, pursuits, explosions and at stake is, only, the whole planet. Earthfall is the start of a brilliant and thrilling new series from the creator of the very popular H.I.V.E. sequence. This is Teen, Speculative fiction at its best -enjoy!
