Summary

An alien plague. A sixteen-year-old girl. A fight to save the world. 

When a rare meteor shower unleashes a mind-altering infection, the people Alex loves begin to change. They’re smarter, faster, emotionless, and they have a plan. One that doesn’t include her. 

Guided by cryptic clues left behind by her deceased father, Alex follows a trail of increasingly shocking discoveries. Earth’s history isn’t what she learned in school, and a new hive mind threatens to rewrite the future. 

Alex is a fighter, but pursued by both friends and an unknown enemy, it will take everything she has to fulfill her destiny. Desperate to save her little brother, she flees to the mountains surrounding her home, where the only chance for humanity has lain hidden for thousands of years.

Cool story with a great characters

This starts really well with a meteor shower leading to a roller coaster adventure for Alex. Alex and her compatriots on this thrilling twist filled ride are all really well written and solid characters. The story moves at a good pace revealing new information and plot twists as it goes. Really enjoyable! I listened to it in just over one sitting thanks to a long journey and to be honest I would have loved an excuse to drive a bit further and listen to it all. It's really easy to get into. The narrator is the author and does a great job of getting you into the book. I really enjoyed the narration, which is a skill in itself, so really great job!!
