Ana Mia is graduating and wants to join The Midnight Guard like her sister to stand guard on the wall to keep the aliens from coming inside the walls of Fort Hope.
When the wall is breached and the aliens make it inside and attack their city Ana Mia and her friends Jason and Asha find themselves on the run from the aliens.
I love alien movies and post-apocalyptic worlds. When They Came reminds me of that tv show Falling Skies. I love the world that was created in When They Came with the aliens attacking and Ana Mia and her friends always having to look over their shoulders hoping to see the aliens before they saw them so they would not be harvested like others.
When They Came is a very intense read that will keeping you on the edge of your seat looking for aliens around every turn. Rooting for Ana Mia every time she saw the aliens hoping They wouldn’t catch her.
I loved the ending and can’t wait to see what Ana Mia has in store for us in the next book When They Saw. Even though I loved that ending part of me was expecting it but another part of me kept thinking that it would go in another direction.
I would recommend When They Came to fans of aliens, post-apocalyptic and even science fiction.
I enjoyed this book. The idea of aliens harvesting humans may not be new but the way this author presents this story is fresh and alive. This book takes a much more personal look at the people with intelligent and emotional interactions. You, as the reader, will feel those emotions.
There are plenty of twists in this story which will keep you flipping the pages. I look forward to the next book in this series.
And you are right: no spoilers. Read this book and enjoy the adventure.
Well, there is no doubt that the writer is in his element here. The writing is clean, elegant, and just flows well. Makes for a quick, easy reading and great story following. No going back and wondering if that was written properly.
The story is beautiful and well crafted. It's pretty much everything you would want in an alien invasion novel and then some. Abduction, monsters, and lasers, just to name a few. The amount of detail is just right and the sense of adventure and despair keeps you reading on.
The only frustration I had with the book was the generally slow development of the main character as she, only a 17 year old, faced horrors and despair. Later in the books I felt she should have developed a harder shell and shed some of her insecurity. It made it hard to root for her as she continued to doubt her abilities and confidence. Not a huge thing but just an observation.
Still lots of fun reading though.
Am very pleased with this authors writing !
