Publisher's Summary

I was never afraid of monsters - at least, not until they came: the visitors from outer space. 

Now, they’re in our skies, on our streets, always watching, forever waiting.

At 17, I’m just about to graduate from the Juvenile Education System and declare my career of choice. The Midnight Guard - who protect our community from the vicious things that lie outside our walls - calls to me. 

It’s hard, dangerous work, with grueling hours that offer little sleep, but it’s the one thing I know will help make a difference in our ever-changing world.

I really enjoyed this!

I enjoyed the narrator who was easy to follow. This narrator was perfect as she was female so no fake female voices and no accent making it easy to follow.

The story was interesting with action and emotion and kept my interest throughout the entire story..

I'm looking forward to book 2 and reading/listening to more books by this author. and narrator.

It’s a great start.

The blurb caught my attention and decided to give it a try. If you enjoy dystopian genre I think you will enjoy this book especially if you sprinkle some alien invasion into the mix.
This story follows Ana who has decided to join The Midnight Guard. This story had some interesting points but the writing at times that the author chose to deceive certain scenes would take me away from the story and leave me wondering on her choice of words. I’m no writer but it did break my concentration. I liked how this book was clean. No cuss words. This book does end in a cliffhanger.
I listened to the audiobook and thought the narrator was okay. When saying words in spanish she pronounced them fine.

When they came

I loved the consept of the book and there were parts I loved but it dragged at times and this made me lose interest. It's not a bad read but I have read better.
would I read other works by this author? Yes I would. I loved how she wrote about the aliens, it sent chills up my spine. It had a little of a horror feel to it which I really liked.
The books is violent in some places but that is to be expected and it did not put me off the book.

This was Great

I enjoyed this book. The narrator did a awesome job. Can't wait to find out what happens in the next book. This book does leave you on a cliffhanger. If you like dystopian/sci-fi, you should give this book a try.

Dystopian meets sci fi

This story has a bit of Sci-Fi with a lot of Dystopian feel to it. It leaves you with so many questions! Now I want to know what happens in book 2! The narrator does a good job as well getting emotion across!
