   Good Monday all , happy long weekend to those like me are celebrating today . Today we are going to review ZERO REPEAT FOREVER by G.S Prendergast

                           BOOK BLURB 

The 5th Wave meets Beauty and the Beast in this fast-paced and heart-stopping novel about an invasion of murderous creatures and one girl fighting for her life at the end of the world.

He has no voice or name, only a rank, Eighth. He doesn’t know the details of the mission, only the directives that hum in his mind.
Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall.
His job is to protect his Offside. Let her do the shooting.
Until a human kills her…

Sixteen-year-old Raven is at summer camp when the terrifying armored Nahx invade. Isolated in the wilderness, Raven and her fellow campers can only stay put. Await rescue. Raven doesn’t like feeling helpless, but what choice does she have?

Then a Nahx kills her boyfriend.

Thrown together in a violent, unfamiliar world, Eighth and Raven should feel only hate and fear. But when Raven is injured, and Eighth deserts his unit, their survival comes to depend on trusting each other…

                         MY REVIEW 
    When Raven and her best friends are sent to a wilderness camp . Things go from bad to worse when an alien invasion happens . Waiting at the camp for rescue was the safest thing to do until one killed her boyfriend . The all bets were off when Raven gets hurt and Eight a drone of the aliens deserts his unit and helps out Raven . Their survival depends on each of them trusting each other . Will they survive 
  This is a twist on beauty and the beast with an alien twist . The characters were well written . Raven is the heroine but she isn't invincible . She shows her age a few times which endeared her to me . She was a teen ager and scared but she did what she had to do to stay alive. Eight has no name , no identity all he is programed to do is dart the earthlings and just keep going . But when he looses his partner he starts to have feelings of desertion . He is an intriguing character because he doesn't speak and everything is said internally . They are good together and they actually work good together . 
  This book reminds me of the 5th wave , just a little slower . The author takes us on a rollercoaster ride across Canada. Which I loved cause hardly any sci fi fantasy books are written with Canada in mind as the place where it could happen . I will say the book is slow and it takes a bit to get into it but once you do it is a good read . I was shocked that there was a cliff hanger at the end. Over all I really liked this story and the characters . This would be a great summer read for your teen . Have them check it out they won't be disappointed
