Published Date & Page Count: May 30, 2013. pages 236.
The world didn’t end with a bang, didn’t go out in a ball of fire and fury. Nor did it end in ice, but in some strange way, ice was the end; or maybe it was the beginning of something more.
Bethany is stunned and horrified when she finds herself suddenly alone in a world that was alive only moments before. Terrified, she flees into the streets of her town, looking for answers, and desperate to reach her family. Panicked, she is nearly captured by the monsters hunting her until Cade steps in to rescue her. Dark and distant, most people in school are wary of Cade, yet oddly fascinated by him. They had been close as children, but it has been years since Bethany has had any real contact with Cade. Inexplicably drawn to his dark presence, Bethany finds herself torn between her growing desire for Cade, and her boyfriend, Bret’s, unwavering love.
As their situation becomes even more perilous Bethany struggles to come to terms with her past, her terrifying new reality, and her growing love for a boy that is powerful, mysterious, and deadly.
Presented with an opportunity to uncover the secret that Dr. Bishop feels her blood holds, and why she is different than the rest of the survivors, Bethany strikes out on a mission. With a small group of fellow survivors, Bethany is determined to gather the supplies necessary to discover what help she may be for humanity.
Though she is haunted by memories of those she’s lost, Bethany refuses to give up hope that one day they might be able to regain some semblance of their former lives. Though chances of that are looking smaller and smaller as they are confronted with new, and even deadlier creatures looking for only one thing; the destruction of the human race.

Hunted by alien enemies and desperate to survive the invasion, Bethany and Cade are forced into situations they never imagined were possible. As danger seems to lurk around every corner and new people enter their lives, they discover that not everything is what it seems, and that sometimes the answers they seek may lie in the last place they ever thought to look.
In order to survive, they all must make a choice, continue to hide or make a stand. But all choices have consequences and those consequences lead to roads they never thought they'd travel. Roads that may very well divide them in the end.
Sacrifices will be made, not everyone will survive, and through it all there is one question driving them all, who will prevail... mankind or the aliens?
