I enjoyed the Twilight novels and was excited to read this book. I was hooked at the beginning and wanted to read more and by the middle of the book, I could not put it down. Unfortunately after that the chapters of this book dragged on so much that I had lost interest. I had put the book down to read others novels but I was determined to finish this one. Honestly, I just read the last chapter and the book is put away for good. This was a fail for me.
I was really excited to read this book because I love the Twilight series. It's definitely very different from the vampier/werewolf love, so you have to get your head wrapped around a totally different, and sci-fi frame of mind.
I was skeptical about this book at first because the summary did not seem very appealing to me (aliens taking over). I read it anyways because my friend said it was amazing and because Twilight was so successful. I absolutely LOVE this book. I just couldn't put it down until I have finished it and when I did finish it I was so sad it ended. They are making a movie so I will definitely watch it. I recommend everyone to read it if you're a fan of Twilight!
One of my favorite books.
The beginning is a little slow, but when I got about halfway through I was very interested.
