Overview

Shayne Barlet has been kidnapped, his powers disabled and his memory altered. He's having a bad day...and he doesn't even know it.

Shayne believes he's living the ideal life.

He attends a great school in the Midwest, gets along with his roommate, and has even met a girl who seems perfect for him.

But it's all a lie.

His girlfriend is deceiving him, his roommate is in on it, and perhaps most unbelievably of all: he's not from Earth. He's not even human...and neither are they.

As he discovers his own buried psychic abilities, Shayne realizes the only truth he's been told is perhaps the most improbable one: his girlfriend, a member of the invasion force, seems to truly love him, even though her actions are rife with deceit.

Shayne soon uncovers a vast conspiracy involving planetary conquest, erased memories, holographic worlds, and dark agendas. He vows to expose the truth, set his people free, and stop The Overtaking...once, and for all.

Although I hate to say it, I was somewhat underwhelmed by this book. I had high hopes because I've heard good things about Lieske, but I just never connected with this book. I read a lot of YA and enjoy fantasy and scifi, so I thought this book would be right up my alley, but I was never sucked into the story...never able to forget I was reading a book. You know how when you're reading a book that you really connect with, you can lose yourself in the story? I was never able to lose myself. It wasn't a bad story. I thought the premise was interesting. Being a comic book fan, I enjoyed the idea of the characters having powers, but it would have been nice to see the powers used a little bit more. It sounds like the powers may play a more key role in later books, so maybe I'm just impatient ;) With a romance central to the story's plot, I didn't "believe" it. Yes, the characters are young and therefore may be forgiven for acting silly, but it still seemed a bit fast to be throwing around the "L" word after only a few dates. Since this story is obviously going to take up more than one book, I think the romance aspect may have worked better for me if it had been a slower build up across the whole trilogy/series(?). This is also a small nitpick, and maybe it's a regional thing, but Shayne spelled like that makes me think of a girl's name. Note: I read a free review copy from author
