When seventeen year old Liv Larson and her brother are sent to separate foster homes, she gives up on her old life, her old friends, and her faith in God. The only bright spot in Liv’s new life is her energetic and obnoxious foster-sister, Riley. When Riley convinces her to come to the rooftop party to view Icarus, the up-coming solar flare, Liv meets Zander. For the first time in months her troubles take a back seat...that is until what should have been a small flare, erupts into a full blown solar storm.
Now, Liv and her rag-tag group of not-quite friends must find a way to survive the sweltering heat, lingering radiation, and the mysterious virus that appears to have found an ideal host among their ranks. Alliances will be formed, and battle lines will be drawn as Liv and her new friends set out on a perilous journey to save their loved ones, find answers, and reach salvation.
But, something sinister awaits them in the dark—and it’s undeniably connected to Liv.
Will Liv be able to keep her promise and reunite with her brother? Will her brave determination be enough to save them all from a rogue government, a terrifying virus, and the things that go bump in the night?
…Or was Icarus, indeed, the KILLSHOT.
This was a really good book. The beginning is a bit slow but after a bit it is real easy to get into and stick with it. Aria is an amazing writer. She captures the reader from the beginning and keeps you into the book through the end wanting more. Any time I read an apocalyptic book it gives me chills wondering what if... The way this book is wrote it is so believable. One night and everything can change. Liv and Zander go on one heck of a journey. These teenagers deal with so much and it brought out emotions in me along the way. I can picture myself there with the characters and that is an amazing feeling when reading a book. It is an on the edge of your seat kinda book. I will be reading the next in the series.
