I was debating between 2 and 3 but I didn't want to be too cruel.

Zero Repeat Forever is a book about aliens invading Earth - the two protagonists are Eighth, one of the invaders who becomes a deserter, and Raven, one of the survivor humans.

And... I didn't enjoy it very much. I liked the set-up of the book, and I liked Raven's parts sometimes -but I couldn't emotionally relate to Eighth, his parts were often difficult to understand, and I'm still not sure how the Nahx society works at all.

Also, I'm not sure if this counts as a spoiler, but the book ends on a cliffhanger, which... okay, I get that it's the first in a series, but I still like when each book is a complete story on its own, you know?

Here, I felt like I finally got through an almost 500-page book that was much longer than it needed to be, and it wasn't even the complete story.

tldr; The book had some interesting ideas, but overall I couldn't relate to one of the protagonists, and I felt like the book was much longer than necessary.

I do like the title and its significance, though. That's a nice one. ( )

**I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley. All opinions are my own and not influenced by my source.**

Invasion stories seem to be all the rage lately and so I was eager to see what this one would deliver. I love stories where hated enemies become unlikely allies and sometimes more and I couldn't wait to see what would happen with these two.

Unfortunately, this novel just wasn't for me.

It is terribly slow; going through the mundane motions of Raven and company trying to survive. And I get why the pace is slower. They are now living in an unknown world and don't know how to proceed--I know I sure wouldn't. But I wanted more action and not just mini cut scenes of them being attacked by the Nahx here and there.

It would have helped to get a little more insight into the situation at hand. Again, I get that they are on their own and lost but an attempt to investigate more of what is happening in the world would have given my something else to focus on. I needed more clues about who the Nahx were; why they wanted to invade earth--not just how to kill them. This simply becomes a story about survival and not one about trying (or even attempting to learn how) to save the world.

I also wanted Raven and Eighth to meet a lot earlier than they did (I think it was around the 50% mark?). I craved that interaction between them because I simply got tired of Raven moping about Tucker (her dead boyfriend) and the stalemate her present company seemed to be stuck in. By the time they (her and Eighth) meet, I wasn't as invested as I wanted to be. They have a confusing relationship and I will be the first to admit I didn't understand how their relationship evolved as it did. It didn't win me over.

The last 20 pages were rather exciting. Finally, we get some action and Raven starts to actually do something about the situation at hand. It's a good twist but at this point, it was a little too late for me to be truly impressed.

Now, I think I will be in the minority with this review and there are a lot of positives to this book that will draw readers in. I loved the setting (rarely do I get to read books set in Canada). I loved how diverse the cast was and how natural the diversity was. I never felt like characters were thrown in simply to get the "diverse" label. Additionally, Eighth's character development was intriguing.

It's just that I need action or various plot twists to keep me invested. I'm not one for slower plots. But readers who like novels that gradually build or if they particularly loved the movie Arrival (2016), I think they will truly enjoy this one.

I got this book because I saw one of the book bloggers talk about it in an enthusiastic way and I got excited. The cover is just stunning and it was almost 500 pages, I just like big books!

The beginning was good but then somehow it slowed down, the pace of the events was very slow, and some parts were repeated. But towards the end, things started speeding up and getting more interesting for we starts to find out more about the Nahx ...

You may ask, who are the Nahx?

Well, the story is about Eighth, a Nahx soldier who loses his offside and becomes lost, until he meets Raven, who has also lost her boyfriend at the same time. They find each other, and they might find hope!

But how can they find hope when their people are fighting?

I can't wait for book 2 :S ( )

This was described as the Canadian version of the 5th Wave and I’d have to say that was pretty accurate; that’s not a bad thing it just helps to provide a visual framework in which to approach this story.

If you aren’t into slow buildups you may have some trouble with this as the pace is more of a steady stroll than a sprint but if you can hang in there it grows on you.

You get aliens, diverse characters, an intricate storyline and an emotional spectrum that actually works to make it all feel captivatingly real. Prendergast made his characters feel relatable, strong but still flawed so we didn’t get more of the type where seemingly normal people can do things that feel impossible.

There are a few plot points I wasn’t very happy with, actions taken by the characters that kind of irritated me, and I felt weren’t necessary to moving the story along but it seems lately everyone has to throw in some kind of soap opera-drama stuff.

The settings were beautiful and perfect for this story so it helped ground the characters more in reality which also felt surprising considering it’s a story about Aliens. By the end you’ll be looking forward to the sequel so if you enjoyed 5th Wave definitely check this out. ( )

A nice Canadian story....

Alien invasion.... In Calgary?

This book was a bit slow for me I had a hard time staying interested.

There is Raven and her friends who were at a camp working off their "community service" for some misdeeds

Along comes an alien invasion that they have to survive. One alien (8th) is not like the others (he is defective) and does not want to continue with the orders he is given.

Raven and 8th meet and 8th feels he must save the human.

Thank you to NetGalley for the Ebook to read for an honest review ( )
