About The Last Star

9780142425879 (2).jpgThe enemy is Other. The enemy is us.

They’re down here, they’re up there, they’re nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us.

But beneath these riddles lies one truth: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion people who used to live on our planet. Betrayed first by the Others, and now by ourselves.

In these last days, Earth’s remaining survivors will need to decide what’s more important: saving themselves…or saving what makes us human.

    I think I may be the last one left who hasn’t read this series. I’m not sure why I haven’t yet taken the plunge because it sounds like such a good series! Shame on me, I’ll definitely have to get around to it sooner rather than later 🙂

      It happens sometimes! I know I have a few series that I’ve been meaning to get to for FOREVER and just haven’t yet. If you want to join the buddy read though, let me know. It’ll just be one book per month, so not too demanding. 🙂

And now I’ll finally be in the club! My reading schedule is fairly packed, but count me in for at least book 1 with this buddy read. I’m so excited!
