Book Description

Edited by Leslie Mitchell at G2 Freelance Editing and re-released 11/22/13.

The world didn’t end with a bang, it didn’t go out in a ball of fire and fury, nor did it end in ice. But in some strange way, ice was the end; or maybe it was the beginning of something more.

Bethany is stunned and horrified when she finds herself suddenly alone in a world that was alive only moments before. Terrified, she flees into the streets of her town, looking for answers, and desperate to reach her family. Panicked, she is nearly captured by the monsters hunting her until Cade steps in to rescue her. Dark and distant, most people in school are wary of Cade, yet oddly fascinated by him. They had once been close as children, but it has been years since Bethany has had any real contact with Cade. As their situation becomes even more perilous, Bethany struggles to come to terms with her past, her terrifying new reality, and her growing love for a boy that is powerful, mysterious, and perhaps even more frightening than the aliens hunting them. Aliens that want more than their lives, they also want their blood.

Book 1 The Ravening Series

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW !!! October 15, 2012
By Tifeni
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
THE ABSOLUTE BEST SCI-FI I HAVE READ IN YEARS...action pact,aliens,adventure,true love and best friends,fighting for your life drama. There was not a dull minute in this book...Just when I thought it was getting to be a lill too musky...bam, they are fighting for thier lifes again...I was actually biting my nails.
I dont write many reviews, mainly because I dont see the point of rehashing what the Author and other readers have already written to describe the book, and I'd rather just express my opinion of it. This book was worth taking the time to leave a few words for though.
I came across it in the YA Paranormal Category, but I say its YA SCI-FI all the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars I devoured this book and Loved it. October 4, 2012
I would have to disagree that this book is been there done that. Bethany has typical girl insecurities, and no one like someone who is narcissistic.

Anyway, when I got this book, I don't really know what I was expecting. I thought the description was interesting and I liked the cover. I was in for a wild surprise. I read it in a single day, which for me is hard because I work more than full time.

The situation the characters were in was a new reading experience for me. Maybe it would seem typical to readers that usually go for alien take over books, but it was anything but typical for me. The characters aren't forced down a path I would expect, and I really enjoyed the romance between Bethany and Cade. Some of the characters got on my nerves, because of their ignorance/behavior, but to me it seems to be written with that intention because these are teenagers in a situation they would never have imagined being in. Their reactions were true to real teens.

I will be reading this book again, and its sequel(s), and will wait with anticipation for more! Thank you Erica Stevens for sharing this with us.

It's a good plot and easy read. Don't want to put it down. However, there are a lot of spelling and grammar mistakes that I found slightly annoying.

3.0 out of 5 stars it has the power to be an amazing book March 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm trying so hard to love this book, it hooked me from the very first page, the action had my heart racing, there was love and loss and aliens, the writing was great..... so many wonderful things about this book, I can even get past the grammar errors. However for ever 10 pages of details, description of the surroundings, how Bethany was feeling, what she was thinking, the flashbacks of memories, and all the actions she and eceryone else was performing, there was about 6 lines of conversation between characters and then ANOTHER 5-10 pages of OCD details and descriptions. I feel like i spent about 90% of the book inside bethany's head and in the surrounding and actions instead of a developing story. Had it not been for this I would have rated it a 5. It was a great story all in all but the OCD details were a little mind numbing at times and I wanted so badly to just skim thru this but though I might miss a big revelation. Im still up in the air on weather or not I will be reading the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow September 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love sci-fi and dystopian works and this one was very good. I liked that from the beginning the survivors were literally running for their lives. There was no safe place, no rest. Now, I am very curious to see where Ms. Stevens will take us.

More About the Author

Though Erica Stevens is a pen name I created in memory of two friends, I actually do live in Mass with my amazing husband. I was born in New York and moved to Mass as a child. I spent my time growing up between NY and Mass, so I have some interesting times when sports games roll around. I was fortunate enough to marry my best friend over three years ago, and I don't know what I'd do without him. I have a large, crazy, fun loving family that just loves to laugh. My parents can always make me smile and are the strongest people I know. I have an older brother and sister, and a younger sister, who have blessed me with many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. I am nowhere near as old as the great nieces and nephews make me sound. I love to read and have wanted to be a writer since I was nine years old.
