A massive solar flare devastated civilization, returning humanity to near barbarism. Teenagers Blaine and Kara, along with both an old friend and new ally, have managed to survive among the deadly and unforgiving conditions. They are threatened not only by desperate humans that know no other way to survive than to prey upon others, but also by the Intruders, hideous creatures that destroy everything in their path. 
The group is forced to move constantly to avoid attacks, but Kara’s love for Blaine is unyielding as they both grow accustomed to their newly found gift, the ability to catch glimpses of the future through shared visions. One unwelcome vision haunting Kara could mean her love for Blaine comes with a terrible price, a price she is not willing to pay.

4 out of 5 stars

Plot:

I really liked this book, actually. It was much better than I anticipated; much better than the first in the duology. Again, I love that the romance didn’t take over the entire story because when that happens it gets really irritating really quick. I like the post-apocalyptic feel of this book. The aliens were a little weird because they only came out in the night… I wish there was another book in the series because I definitely would have liked more closure with the ending. The ending made sense, but I want an epilogue or a novella at the end. It would be cool to see a prequel too. The ending was somewhat cheesy but still an enjoyable book.

Characters:

Kara and Blaine are a wonderful couple. In the first book you just think it’s a cute relationship between best friends, but then you realize that it’s much more than that. I like the character development in this book, but Kara got really whiny by the end. It’s understandable why, but still. Blaine is the perfect guy for Kara because she is whiny and he’s stable. She can always cound on him to be there any time, and I really love that about the story.

Who Would I Be?:

I think I would be Lacey, an abandoned girl that the group takes in, because she’s oblivious to everything that happens around her. She doesn’t not know what’s going on, she just chooses to not let it get to her. I love that she lightens the mood and talks all the time. I hate when Kara gets mad at her for talking. If Lacey wasn’t talking everything would be silent and awkward all the time. Lacey came into the story scared and kind of pathetic, but then becomes an adorable character that I’ve come to love.

Kara Laquin wanted nothing more than to forget. Forget the past, live in the present, and ignore the future. When a massive solar flare destroys all electronics and throws the country into chaos, Kara is nearly a whole state away from her lost love, Blaine. He can wait only three days before moving on. With access to fuel limited, she must do anything necessary to get to him before he is forced to move on, but society is crumbling around her. Looters and murderers prowl the cities during the day, and something even worse roams at night.

4 out of 5 stars

Plot:

This book started as a cute boy-next-door type of feel. She liked him but never told him, and he liked her but never told her. Best friends that turn out to be lovey dovey for eachother. It’s odd because that all I thought it was going to be. It definitely was not only that. When the two of them kiss, they see futuristic visions. There is a minor setback in the story when Kara falls and hits her head and loses her memory. I think that it was pointless to even happen and didn’t really help the story… But this was so good and I was definitely pleasently surprised.

Characters:

The main characters, Kara and Blaine, are the adorable couple of this story. I’m so glad that this book had the content of a YA book, not New Adult. It stopped at the kissing, which was really pleasing. I loved both of these characters and I liked the story line. I’m so glad that I found this book; it was a very fun and entertaining read. If you have a Nook I highly recommend downloading this ebook, it was free and I really enjoyed it.

Who Would I Be?:

I would be Kara because the love interest is a really great choice. I liked Kara as a character and I would definitely choose to have her life. The visions that she has would probably freak me out…. a lot, actually. I really loved that Kara was a strong lead character and wasn’t a weak, lovesick puppy even though she’d been falling for Blaine since before she could remember. This was very well written and I would definitely pick something else up from this author. *applauds author*
