| I received this E-book for review from the Author. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated in any way for them.|
Charlie Freeman is your typical teenager, he goes to school, plays video games and sometimes he even gets in trouble for breaking the rules. All of that changes the day a space ship shows up in the skies above Washington D.C. If that wasn't strange enough just as soon as they came The Visitors vanished. While people around the world rejoiced, Charlie was just happy things could return to normal. Unfortunately for Charlie things were about to get much worse, and with Billions of people suddenly vanishing and strange humanoid peoples wanting to rip them apart at every turn, the only people Charlie and his visiting cousin Alex can rely on are themselves.
I am just going to say it, I LOVED this book. The best way I can describe The Intruders is The Walking Dead meets Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, it really was the perfect blend of both. The characters in this book were richly developed and I instantly felt connected to the plight of Charlie and his cousin Alex.
One thing I was surprised to learn after reading this book was that the Author is only a teenager. I never would of thought that based on how sharp, witty and detail orientated the writing was. I know I'm gushing but I honestly cannot praise this book enough everything about it was spot on and it really helped reignite my love for the Sci-Fi genre.
If your a fan of Sci-Fi or just looking for something new to read then pick up this book! I know personally that I am really looking to more from this Author and especially the next book in this series. I will be rating The Intruders by Logan Rutherford ★★★★.
