An unknown vessel, not of this world, materializes in London. A colossal figure towering over the city, it makes no move. Is this a peaceful first contact or the prelude to an invasion?

Every child has nightmares. But the only thing scarier than little Eva Reyes’ dreams – apocalyptic visions of death and destruction – is the habit they have of coming true…

Scientist Dr Rose Franklin has no memory of the last few years. The strangers she works with say she died, and was brought back to life. The question is not just how … but why?

Kara Resnik and Vincent Couture fell in love during war, and have found peace since. They are the thin line of defence against what is coming. But they do not know they have been living a lie. -Goodreads

My Review

My Rating: 4/5

Not a terrible second book of the trilogy. It is often hard to follow such a brilliant first book (see the review for that book here) but the characters don’t develop a huge amount. The story continues, though, and it’s only getting more interesting. Looking forward to reading what the final book has to offer.
