Overview

Earth as we know it no longer exists. Humanity has destroyed itself and with it any chance we may have had of returning.

What had started as a six month voyage through the stars becomes a nightmare when the passengers are stranded in space without hope. With Earth gone, the crew and passengers of The Dawn Light are left wandering the galaxy in search of a new planet. After years of searching, one is found, but no one is prepared for the terror that takes claim of the Galaxy Cruiser when one by one the people begin to turn, mutating into flesh eating monsters.

For Scarlett, Hunter and Rolf, this means being trapped in a sardine can full of piranhas. Their only hope... to get the hell out before they're next, but someone on the ship wants to be the only survivor to reach the new planet and will do anything to stop them. But just how far are they willing to go?

Death no longer has a limit.

Shocking, intense, & full of awesome!  I am a huge fan of Airicka Phoenix, & I've anticipated reading this ever since I read the description. As always I adore Airicka's characters & witty comments, but other than the mad story telling skills When Night Falls is nothing like her other works. She takes what we believe to be a sci-fi fantasy to a dystopian zombie filled level. Yes even after reading the blurb I was still caught off guard. Not a bad thing, I enjoy being surprised, but I seriously never saw a few of those twists coming. Think Star Trek: Voyager meets Red Dawn with a Survivor: Zombie Apocalypse Edition added in. What begins tugging the heart strings a bit soon thrusts us into an intense action-packed fight for survival. The question remains WHO SHOULD YOU TRUST TO SURVIVE?  I can not wait to get my hands on a sequel to this book!! There are so many plausible outcomes for their future!

fAiricka Phoenix has another winning series. I was glued to the pages of this book from 1st page to last and I don't even care that I have to get book 2 to continue. The Devious plot is awesome. Can't tell you more . . . it would spoil the experience. I love Hunter, Scarlet, Penn, Jack, Mac, even the irritating Kiera. . . . all the characters in this book have life. Three dimensional and interesting. Imagine what you might do if you took a 6 month cruise into space, your world literally shattered. 7000 people left to the human race and then the unthinkable happens. Awesome, exciting, cannot put down until you finish book. I received this book free for an honest review and I can tell you honestly that this book is awesome. I will be buying every book in this series.

How can one person be so cruel? Why do you like to torture us Airicka? *grumbles...* fine lets get on with the review.  Song Choice: "Guilty Kisses" by Ilya - yeah only one sorry but its an eight minute song.  First thoughts: Holy fudgers, ugh THIS was...just THIS! Amazing doesn't seem to cover it. I normally eat up Airicka's books, I devoured this. Heart-racing, hands sweating, sitting on the edge of my seat, fighting sleep, that is what this book was. Prepare yourselves....I dare might even say...this might be my favorite Airicka book. Touching Eternity and When Night Falls are tied. And if you know me, I would have a baby with Touching Eternity I loved it so much. This was explosive. So amazing  Thoughts on Plot:  Now it was never confirmed that is what they were, but when something wants flesh for nom noms, I usually go with Zombies. IN SPACE! Sounds almost corny doesn't it? It isn't i promise! This was spectular. Though i was very curious about the world that was "left" behind originally, and they couldn't return to for reasons... i am not trying to be purposefully vague but I don't even think I read the blurb to this, I just dove in. I highly recommend that too. ;) So back to the world that was left behind, I was curious about it, because we are obviously in the future, but idk I was a little I guess feeling left behind. Like i was missing a pieces of the puzzle for awhile, but they did start revealing more stuff as the plot went on. But this is what I can say, this was an adventure, terrifying, fun, and oh so sexy ;) I mean, Airicka always has a man for us. I got that, I don't feel right about this feeling a lot. Good thing too, trust your instincts my friends!!! So I didn't know when starting this it was going to be a series (should I have been surprised? Nope. Not at all ;) Airicka's ideas a HUGE, and when I say huge, I mean massively huge, and can only be expressed in a series. I am not complaining AT ALL). Anyways moving on, so I guess this book could be broken up almost in three pieces. The beginning, all is good, we learn a little more about life before (not a whole lot) because we are learning about life for them now, then the middle-ish when things start getting WAY INTENSE, and problems are happening, then the end where we start to get some results...or do we? Idk you will have to find out ;) Seriously though, God i can't get over how much i loved this. i HIGHLY recommend it, even if you aren't a huge sci-fi fan i think you will enjoy this.  SO.DAMN.AMAZING. Thoughts on Characters:  Scarlett: I really, really liked her. She was different from most of Airicka's MC's while I enjoy the other ladies and I do, she wasn't as abrasive in my opinion, she felt softer, a bit quieter and there is nothing wrong with that. i think she is smarter than she thinks, and I think she is one of those quiet observers that things started to click for her without her even realizing it. I think she has the capacity to figure everything out in time. I really enjoyed though that while she was afraid, she was willing to fight and survive.  Rolf: *mmeeeoooow* I don't know what it is, but maybe Canada is just full of these super smexy men that Airicka (and a few other Canadian authors I know) are hoardering all for themselves! Orrrr Airicka's husbands like ridiculously swoon worthy......well this just got awkward....moving on! Rolf was in my opinion a character that needed some growing up to do, and he did, thank goodness. I mean he was silent and sexy but he had a few (a lot) of skeletons in the closet and he took forever to come clean and become his own man, but when he did, boy did he....kinda wish this was a Morgana book, I'd love to see what he was....okay i am getting awkward again im going to stop. ;)  Hunter: I think I got it now. I think i got it. I do. Anyways good best friend, good supporting-ness. :)

When Night Falls by Airicka Phoenix is a YA sci-fi dystopian story.  It takes place in the future and Earth has been destroyed.  The last remaining humans are those who were lucky enough to be on a space cruise when Earth was destroyed.  The last survivors are stuck on the space cruise ship and are searching for a new planet.  They find a new planet but before they get to there, people on the space cruise start turning into terrible infected monsters. The story is action-packed and a roller coaster ride of twists and turns.  This story has everything - romance, true friendship, creepy moments, blood & guts, and action.  The characters are wonderful.  Scarlett is a great heroine.  She is innocent and kind but also brave and willing to do anything for the people she cares about.  Rolf is yummy!!  He's strong and confident and protective...perfect book boyfriend material.  Hunter is adorable - such a great best friend for Scarlett.  And Kiera is the girl that you just have to hate.  I must admit there were times that I wish she had been sacrificed to the monsters. You'll notice that I keep saying monsters and I'm sure other reviews are going to use the "z" word.  But I hate Zombies and I don't normally like zombie books or movies.  Since I LOVED When Night Falls, I'm refusing to admit that they are zombies...LOL

This is a review by: Terri Dion (fixed it Airicka) First I'd just like to say thank you to Mrs. Phoenix for providing me with an ARC copy of When Night Falls in exchange for an honest review. I'd also like to say this review does contain a few spoilers. When Night Falls is one of the best sci-fy paranormal thrillers that I have read in a long time and one of my favorite reads this year so far. This book kept me on the edge of my seat from page one until the end. Mrs. Phoenix is one of my all time favorite authors. I've read everything she's ever put out and loved every word! She's one of those authors that never stops surprising her readers with the stories she puts out. I for one am amazed at the worlds she creates and the stories she weaves. When Night Falls is not your typical dystopian zombie apocalypse story. The earth is gone. 7,000 remain in space. And now that there is hope of a new world within their grasp an infection hits. With nowhere to run the only thing anyone can do is fight and survive. The action in this book kept my heart pounding through the whole story. But the best part of any story written by Mrs. Phoenix is the swoon worthy love story that is woven throughout and above all of the chaos happening. Scarlett and Rolf are so starcrossed abut perfect for each other. I enjoyed watching their relationship unfold. I loved Hunter he is the perfect best friend. Kiera annoyed the hell out of me but she's one of those characters that I feel will evolve into a very likable girl in books to come and i'm really hoping there are more books to come. This has been one of my books to read this year and in my opinion should be on everyones to-be-read list. Here are two of my favorite snipits of the book: Scarlett to Kiera: "I lost my Family!" she snarled into the girl's stunned expression. "I lost my home and my friends. I would give anything to have them back, even for a day. But I'll be damned if I let some spoiled, two bit, little bitch disparage my momory of them. The next time you open your mouth, you better think very carefully on what comes out, or i will cut out your tounge." Scarlett and rolf: Drawing back, she kissed him. It was rash and impulsive and no doubt a very stupid mistake, but common sense no longer had control over her. She couldn't think beyond the wild drumming of elation and relief coursing through her, fueling the desperate need to be as close as humanly possible to the man crushing her in his arms. At her back, his hands fisted in her top as he returned the frenzied and reckless kiss. His hunger drove her to push harder for more. Her finger curled into his hair and held him to her as the world around them melted and vanished.
