Synopsis: He has no voice, or name, only a rank, Eighth. He doesn’t know the details of the mission, only the directives that hum in his mind.
Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall.
His job is to protect his Offside. Let her do the shooting.
Until a human kills her…
Sixteen year-old Raven is at summer camp when the terrifying armored Nahx invade, annihilating entire cities, taking control of the Earth. Isolated in the wilderness, Raven and her friends have only a fragment of instruction from the human resistance.
Shelter in place.
Which seems like good advice at first. Stay put. Await rescue. Raven doesn’t like feeling helpless but what choice does she have?
Then a Nahx kills her boyfriend.
Thrown together in a violent, unfamiliar world, Eighth and Raven should feel only hate and fear. But when Raven is injured, and Eighth deserts his unit, their survival depends on trusting each other…
I had a hard time getting into Zero Repeat Forever initially. It’s slow paced in the beginning, but once it picks up, I couldn’t put it down. It’s definitely more character driven than plot driven, but once the characters find their motivation or destination, the action picks up a lot more. If you’re having the same trouble I was starting this book, do not stop reading it. You will be so happy you kept with it!Read More »
