The Sixth Event is a deadly yet exciting journey to discover all they ways the world has ended and how to save it!
This story was almost a hybrid of YA contemporary and disaster world building. We get to navigate through the emotions of these teens as well as the perils of trying to save the world. In the beginning the writing felt flat to me. However it didn’t last long - once the action started, the tone of the writing changed. It was more energized and adventurous. I found Raquel to be an interesting main character. I think she had lots of growth throughout the story. When she first wakes up she is definitely shaken by what occurred, but changes tracks to thinking about saving friendships she lost. Honestly, that would be the last thing on my mind. Once she meets Chris, the pace really starts to pick up. It didn’t take long before I became invested in these characters and their journey.
I love great relationships. Chris and Raquel had a very genuine and sweet relationship despite the end of the world looming over their heads. It wasn’t insta-love, it built up and really came to blossom at the end. I really loved Chris too. I think I liked him more than Raquel. He cared for her so much even when she didn’t quite understand his feelings herself. With the ability to teleport, Chris and Raquel meet other teens who have seen the end of the world as well. Some of the supporting characters also get a little romance of their own, but nothing to the scale that Chris and Raquel have. They also use this ability to go back in time to the age of dinosaurs, which is pretty cool! I thought The Sixth Event was a unique story. I love other-world stories and this one surprised me.
I am unsure if this a stand alone or a series, but the ending...oh my the ending. I was glued to my Kindle. It was intense, had all the feels, and somethings I didn’t see coming. I really commend Kristen on the ending because it took me from “ I like this book” to loving this book. If you enjoy after-earth stories, pick this one up! I gave it a solid four stars!
P.S. - I also love this cover! It fits perfectly for the story!

I received a copy of "The Sixth Event" from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
Eighteen-year-old Raquel isn't eighteen anymore...
During Raquel's first semester of college, she witnesses the end of the world, only to wake up in her old room at her parents' house two years in the past. Even worse, it seems she's the only one who remembers—until Chris Lyley, a boy Raquel always thought was a loser, tells her he remembers the catastrophe. Before long, they both discover new abilities. They're able to understand any language and teleport through time and space. If Raquel and Chris can figure out what caused the end of their world, maybe they can stop it.
My review of "The Sixth Event"
A frightening scenario in which you and one other are the only ones who remember society as we know it coming to and end and not knowing how to keep history from repeating itself. How do you stop the end of the world? Can you stop it from happening again or are you destined to live it over and over again?
With strong lead characters and support characters the lend credence to the story. What would you do if you woke up two years in the past. Think it was all a dream or tell someone and risk being thought insane. A book you do not want to miss.
My rating for "The Sixth Event" is 4/25 out of 5 stars. For all ages who enjoy a good SciFi thriller.
