***I received a review copy of this book from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for a honest review***

This is one of those books that will keep you at the edge of your seat throughout the entire reading... well, except for maybe like the first few pages where we are first being introduced to the story. But after that, it's pretty much none stop action, suspense, and pretty much everything that you might expect to find in a book about aliens taking over, only that this book is so much more than that. I read this book in one sitting! I started reading this book at around eleven at night until around four thirty in the morning when I finally finished it. It was that good of a book!

I really enjoyed the storyline of this book and the characters. Plus, this book was more original than most other alien books where all the aliens are "super hot." Not that I have anything against super hot aliens, but it was refreshing to read a book where aliens are portrayed as slimy yellow creatures instead of super good looking, human like species that are really advanced in pretty much everything.

As for the characters, I felt that they were portrayed very truthfully. Most of the characters that Sinta, the main character, travels with are high school students, Sinta included, and everyone pretty much acted like their age. They weren't childish or anything, and they had to handle things maturely and act wisely, but that didn't just suddenly make them into super mature, wise, and adult like either. They still behaved like high school students and got into stupid fights and arguments, but at the end of the day they stuck together and helped each other out.

The overall story was pretty interesting.

Could you survive an alien invasion? I feel if I was a character in this book or if it was real and so were the character, I might have a fighting chance.
I loved this book starting with the prologue. Sin and her friends are trying their hardest to make it back home, but it’s not an easy task. A lot happens along the way, and the death and destruction the alien’s have caused starts to take its toll on the group. Sin was my favorite character out of this book. I really enjoyed seeing her start out as a regular teenager, and then by the end she is so much more. She really grew up in such a sort amount of time, and she does a lot to help her friends. I also enjoyed seeing how the others in the group changed as well. They all could’ve given up at anytime, but they didn’t. They kept at it, going for their goal. The way the author wrote this book, made me think I was actually with the character, and I felt the emotions each were having. Not only did I get a clear picture of what earth would look like after an invasion, but I also have a new interest in aliens. That’s how awesome this book was. I want to read more and more just so I can find out what happens! Do they take back earth? How will they fight the aliens? So many questions and I can’t wait to find out the answers. This was a young adult novel, but I have to say, it’s by far the best young adult book I’ve read in a long time. I definitely suggest everyone go by this now!

I received a free copy of this book via Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.

There a was a lot to like about this story. The main character, Sinta was a very great representation of a teenage girl. She was mature, but childish, understanding, but moody, and brave but afraid. I usually like it when characters are as multidimensional as Sinta, but for some reason in this book all her different qualities just made me shift between liking and disliking her. It was mostly the moodiness that bugged me. It was the end of the world, and she was dealing with some serious thing, but I just couldn’t put up with her mood shifts. She would go from being angry that the planet had been invaded, to sad that she wasn’t with her mom, to annoyed because her friend Ian said something stupid; and all of these emotional changes would happen in a matter of moments. I get what the author was trying to do. This was a sometimes heroic girl who was not a true heroine yet. The point of the mood shifts seems to be to prove that although she would make a heck of a heroine some day, she was still a 17-year-old girl who had some growing up to do. I get the point of the moodiness, but it was still very annoying.

I liked Sinta a lot when she was focused on helping her friends, and making it home to her mom, I even liked her when she was putting her friend Ian in his place and cracking jokes with her best friend Mia. But as much time as she spent focusing on important things like survival she spent the same amount of time thinking about a boy, and that’s when she became less likable for me. There is a love triangle in this story, but depending on which synopsis you read of the book, it is pretty clear who Sinta is mostly interested in.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

Against the Darkness is a fast-paced YA action adventure about a group of students trying to make it back home after a violent alien invasion. This book is about the students and their trials and tribulations as they travel the ravaged country. We know little about the aliens, other than they are reptilian and seem to be taking as many humans captive as possible.

This novel is written in first person from main character Sinta's point of view. She is seventeen, but a very young seventeen. Her innocence is apparent from the beginning. This makes the novel read like young YA which can be at odds with some of the violence presented. There are many scenes that might be disturbing to younger readers. The young voice coupled with graphic violence created a dichotomy that prevailed from beginning to end.

I liked the plot, found the idea intriguing. Teenagers at camp separated from their families during an alien invasion. Like never turned into more, however. There was action, excitement, even a bit of romance, yet I always felt like I was held at arms length, unable to completely get into the story. I liked the characters but never felt the connection I need to love a book. I would have liked more information on the invasion. Granted that would be difficult given the fact that teenagers are fleeing across the country. But without that information, I never felt suspense or even fear for the characters. The aliens weren't terrifying because they never seemed real.

Against the Darkness featured likable characters in an intriguing plot. Though it didn't blow me away, I did like it. It's definitely a solid three star novel. If you like urban sci-fi and alien invasions, consider adding it to your TBR list.
