She never signed on to save the world ... but she may be humanity's only hope.

The war for the Earth is over. The humans lost. Inside the former city of Washington, D.C., Asgardian hovership patrols sweep the streets, and the remaining free humans cluster in the underground subway system to survive. No one knows that the war may not be over after all ... or that the future may depend on one seventeen-year-old girl.

Sam works as a scavenger, risking capture to retrieve food and survival goods for trade. But her greatest danger may be her growing feelings for her shadowy and scarred partner, Mick.

When Cooper, leader of the human resistance, asks her to break into an Asgardian stronghold, Sam faces a nearly impossible choice: protect the boy she loves, or save the remains of the human race.

How much is freedom worth? In a world where love is a risk few can take, Sam must decide whether the price for fighting back is one she can afford to pay.

What happens when the Earth is invaded and the humans lose??? 17 year old Sam is living that reality. She is a scavenger but is asked to take on a mission of greater importance. This is a fast read and only the beginning of a series. There are many twists and turns, will be interesting to see how the rest of their story plays out.

This is the first book I have read by this author. I am so glad I found it, because It captured me from the very beginning and didn’t release me until the very last word. It had nearly every genre I Love all entwined into an innovational storyline. It had Mythology, fantasy, paranormal, magic, mystery, dystopian, romance and so much more. This is a new series I am excited about. Tessa ward was able to create a world I didn’t question. Her characters felt so believable. I found the flashback descriptions of life before the invasion from the main female lead Sam, really helped me develop a deeper understanding of why her character acted the way she did. Her whit, funny or sarcastic, one liners and quick replies added to that. Watching her cautiously developing relationship with Mick grow was entrancing . In a dystopian type of world, you are always waiting for the other shoe to drop, so to speak. There is so much more I want to know about the others pre-invasion lives. The author giving us flashbacks was a great way to understand their personalities and reactions to certain scenes. Tessa Ward was also fantastic at injecting realism so you could feel the characters emotions, I was in floods of tears with the cliffhanger ending. To me this is what turns a writer into an author, someone who can transcend traditional ideas and keep me turning the pages, with my reality disolving around me. I can’t wait for the next book in this refreshing, creative new series.
