The enemy is Other. The enemy is us. They’re down here, they’re up there, they’re nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us.

But beneath these riddles lies one truth: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion people who used to live on our planet. Betrayed first by the Others, and now by ourselves.

In these last days, Earth’s remaining survivors will need to decide what’s more important: saving themselves . . . or saving what makes us human.


I’m struggling with this book a bit. It’s the last one and I’m not happy about that. I considered giving it zero stars because I feel like that can’t be the end. It’s not allowed to end like that. If you’re reading this Rick Yancy, I hate you. Not really, but kinda. It’s not every day a book really blows you away with the ending.

From the first page, I felt like I was back with old friends. I really enjoyed the new characters as well. I mean, the priest, he was just perfection. I didn’t expect that awesomeness. Like the other books, it would hit a slow point once in a while but it all lead up to something you wouldn’t expect. The ending WRECKED me. So much that my son looked at me and said ‘Mommy, call daddy so he can make you happy again.’. I’m so completely sad it’s over. I think that’s why I rarely finish series, Tv or books, it doesn’t matter. I don’t like losing the story.

If you enjoyed the other books, you’ll love this one. My only complaint is I’m sad it’s over.
