"Detailed settings and swift action make this novel an edge-of-your-seat page-turner. Readers who enjoy post-apocalyptic literature and interspecies unrequited love stories will be drawn in to this story immediately." (VOYA August 2017)
"Teens will love the pace and dialogue...As Raven and Eighth find themselves on an intersecting path, readers will be sucked into humanity’s struggle to survive and the Nahx’s all too focused efforts to ensure that it doesn’t. VERDICT A first purchase for teen collections." (School Library Journal September 2017)

Raven is sent with her Tucker (her bf) and Topher (his twin brother) to work as counselors in a wilderness camp as an alternative restitution for-I believe- arson. While they are at this camp, Earth is invaded by aliens (or Nahx as they have been dubbed). Now all of the campers are essentially hiding out there, awaiting rescue or the Nahx and their fatal darts.
Eighth is a part of that Alien force which operates under a hive mentality with one purpose: killing humans. Eighth is defective, however, and soon crosses paths with Raven.
My Spoiler Free Thoughts:
This book is about survival, loyalty, and love, and G.S. Prendergast has woven these ideals together seamlessly. I think Raven is tough, Eighth is intriguing, and their character growth and bond feels really authentic.
I know the book is being compared to Beauty and the Beast, but I just don't draw that connection between the two. The only similarity is you-are-living-with-a-different-species-you-don't-like and nothing beyond that.
I've read that the story is incredibly slow paced, but I felt for the amount of time that is passing, the pace was very appropriate and even not as slow as it could have been.
I definitely recommend this book, and I've posted a spoiler filled review and discussion on my Instagram: @whitespacebooks
Regarding the story, for once the description that it's for fans of 'The 5th Wave' is pretty accurate. You have your alien human love story where humans & aliens are at war with one another expect for this unique pair of at odds love birds. At times this was a bit difficult to swallow because in this story the aliens do not look human like they do in the 5th Wave. I guess that's where they got the idea to also compare this to 'Beauty & The Beast'. I don't see anything similar there, but whatever.
I loved the 5th Wave series & so far having only read this book, I think the 5th Wave is written better with more believable characters. Depending on what you are comfortable with your kids reading, there is teenage sex, drugs, & drinking plus violence & death. If this is something you don't want your kids to read about, you probably shouldn't get this book for them. If on the other hand, you are comfortable with it, then by all means, get them a copy. I think they will enjoy the story, I know I did, cliff hanger ending and all.
Maybe 2.5 Stars
This story idea was really good (and definitely for 5TH WAVE fans) but the execution didn't win me over.
It held my interest in sporadic bursts. I’d be really into certain chapters or moments, and then suddenly I’d be skimming the pages again until I reached another part that held me transfixed. I think my biggest issue was that I didn’t really connect with any of the characters. I mean, it takes at least half the book before you get to spend any real time with Eighth and I couldn't stand Raven. I don’t think this was a terrible book, it just wasn't for me.
ZERO REPEAT FOREVER is definitely a good choice if you’re a fan of survival stories, alien invasions, or enemies becoming allies with a blush of romance. If you’re a sci-fi nerd, definitely give this book a try because it has some real solid ideas.
