#BookReview for The Last 8 (The Last 8 #1) by @aurampohl


Synopsis: A high-stakes survival story about eight teenagers who outlive an alien attack—perfect for fans of The 5th Wave 

Clover Martinez has always been a survivor, which is the only reason she isn't among the dead when aliens invade and destroy Earth as she knows it. 

When Clover hears an inexplicable radio message, she's shocked to learn there are other survivors—and that they're all at the former Area 51. 


When she arrives, she's greeted by a band of misfits who call themselves The Last Teenagers on Earth.

Only they aren't the ragtag group of heroes Clover was expecting. 


The group seems more interested in hiding than fighting back, and Clover starts to wonder if she was better off alone. 

But then she finds a hidden spaceship, and she doesn't know what to believe…or who to trust.

My Review: OMG this book was so good.  I was up until 3am just to finish it and I did that in just over 4 hours.  This alien invasion/dystopian was freaking great!! The characters were awesome and the story just kept going.  I was kind of sad about the ending but I am so excited to see what the author does with book two.  


This young adult story has almost no romance so if that isn't your thing don't worry about it this book doesn't have a lot in it almost at all.  Theres really only like two parts that deal with it and that's it.  

This is kind of how I hoped The Fifth Wave would have been.  With the world going to the trash heap and the aliens taking over.  If you have been searching for a great alien story then look no further than right here!!   

The characters in this one were diverse and amazing.  I loved everyone!!!  And the author did a wonderful with all of the twists and turns that came at me.  The world was full of everything from creepy creatures to real questions about life.  The author didn't shy away from creepy scary action and man o man this was one for the best reads list!!
