Sleep Over: An Oral History of the Apocalypse - H.G. Bells

Hey, so, I had to add this book, and for whatever stupid reason, the author autocorrected to somebody called Samantha Bells. That is not who wrote this. The author is H. G. Bells, who is a debut author and therefore not in the system already. I tried to fix it, but no dice.

 

Little help?

So this is how it started? Was the second wave because of something these people did? Or was it truly a mutation. I DON'T KNOW!!

Infinite Sea - audiobook
The Infinite Sea: The 5th Wave, Book 2 - Ben Yannette,Rick Yancey,Penguin Books Australia Limited,Phoebe Strole

 

Audience: Young Adult

 

The world is a clock winding down.

- opening sentence

 

This was a re-read for me to prepare for reading the final book in the series, The Last Star. I read a recap summary, but I felt like I needed more information.

 

I enjoyed revisiting Cassie, Ben, Evan, Ringer, Nugget, and the rest of the gang. There is a lot of confusion in this series about who the good guys and bad guys are and how exactly the aliens are achieving their destruction of the majority of the human race.

 

This is a fun book with a few unexpected twists and a lot of action, danger, and drama.

Review: Time Jump: Apocalypse by Brandon Barr
Time Jump: Apocalypse - Brandon Barr

Time Jump: Apocalypse by Brandon Barr is a short story about NASA's JUMP program and what happened when the first jumper disappeared.

This is an interesting story that definitely gives a sense of Brandon's faith. I think this quick read is good for all age groups.

Review: Day By Day Armageddon: Beyond Exile
Day by Day Armageddon: Origin to Exile - J.L. Bourne

This was an amazing follow-up to "Armageddon"!  Our protagonist and group survive the incursion of hostiles, regroup and keep on keeping on.  They do more reconnaissance and perform a fee rescue, one of which involves military personnel.  This eventually leads to our protagonist returning to active military service and becoming the ranking officer on the ground, which put him in charge of many soldiers and civilians.  There is a small contingent of military (on destroyer ships) still active and trying to do what they can to protect the remaining living and take out the threat of the dead.

 

After a search mission gone bad, our protagonist is separated from the group, on his own, injured and on foot, hundreds of miles from home.  It's a harrowing experience and he almost dies several times.  Then his luck changes and he gets help from an unknown group, with experimental tech.  He picks up an ally along the way, and they work together to get back to safety. 

 

He makes it back to the bunker after being gone for 45 days.  Once back and rested they learn that the group that 'helped' him get back home, had ulterior motives, and the bunker comes under siege.  They are able to escape and get evacuated to the war ships.  There we learn that they are planning a mission to China to retrieve patient zero--because of course it always starts in China!  And this all started because scientists found a non terrestrial vessel in a block of ice and just had to investigate it.  They didn't follow protocol, this the outbreak of an unknown disease that brings the dead back. *sigh*  That explanation was unexpected, but not necessarily a bad one.  At least this series gives an actual explanation as to where this outbreak came from.  Now our protagonist is commissioned to the mission to find patient zero and perhaps a cure, or vaccine.  Can't wait to see what happens next!
