WOW!!! This book was amazing!!!!!! The characters felt so real, the book was very descriptive. The plot was great. The author does a good job of making a great world and setting. But I felt the "aliens attacking Earth" idea was not that creative. I do like how the aliens, or the Others, are attacking in stages. The floods, plague, and everything was creative. I really liked this book, I will definitely finish the series!!!!!!!!
