Amber Tate believes the worst thing she'll suffer in life is dealing with the unrequited love she feels for her
In this first installment of NY Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins's debut New Adult series, a frighteningly realistic apocalyptic America is brought to life, entwined with searing romantic tension that will leave you eager for more.
Amber Tate believes the worst thing she'll suffer in life is dealing with the unrequited love she feels for her brother's best friend, Rylen Fite. She also believes war is something unfortunate that happens places far, far away from her rural Nevada town. She's wrong on both counts.
When an unknown organization meticulously bombs major cities in the United States and across the globe, a trickle-down effect spreads to remaining towns at an alarming speed-everything from food and water sources to technology and communications are compromised. Without leadership, the nation is split between paralysis and panic, but Amber isn't one to hide or watch helplessly. She's determined to put her nursing skills to use, despite the danger, even if it means working alongside the man she can never have.

Wow. I was not expecting this book to be what it actually is. This book really is a look into the lives of the family of our main character Amber and how they grow together and are ultimately dealing with the beginning of an apocalypse. I loved that this book is set during the very beginning of the chaos. I barely have read any books that weren't firmly in the 'post era' of the post-apocalypse. I really connected with the characters even though I have nothing in common with any of them! This book is very much an introduction and I expect book 2 to be insane!
Loved it!! I'm ready for book 2!
I don't normally do reviews unless I've read what I felt was a really good book. This book definitely falls in that category! I have almost 1600 books in my library and this book ranks as one of my top 20 favorites. I agree with another reviewer, it stinks that we have to wait almost a year for the next book. On the plus side...we will have another great book to continue the story! Please take a chance and purchase this one. I truly believe that you will agree with a five star rating.
Written in a Red Dawn (the movie) fashion. A group of 20 year olds become rebels against aliens that have just about wiped out the worlds population.
A fast-paced, action packed start to what's sure to be an epic love story. I finished UNKNOWN, and I'm going to need Book Two like yesterday, okay? Thanks. I really enjoyed the story, especially the old school Red Dawn vibe it had going on! I still remember how scared I was to go to school after watching that movie, convinced enemy soldiers were going parachute onto the playground and take me hostage. I liked how opening chapters laid the groundwork for the series and wasn't simply a bunch of flashbacks. I never felt like I was confused about what was going on or where I was in the timeline. I loved Amber and Rylen, and her family is the best! It was nice to see a diverse, multi-generational family under one roof. The camping scene made me laugh! I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!" In this first installment, action, tension and relationships take center stage, which adds a layer of authenticity to the overall story. Don't get me wrong, I love kissing and everything else that goes along with romance, and it's there simmering below the surface, but the world is literally falling down around these characters. They're focused on survival, as they should be.
