An alien plague. A sixteen-year-old girl. A fight to save the world.
When a rare meteor shower unleashes a mind-altering infection, the people Alex loves begin to change. They’re smarter, faster, emotionless, and they have a plan. One that doesn’t include her.
Guided by cryptic clues left behind by her deceased father, Alex follows a trail of increasingly shocking discoveries. Earth’s history isn’t what she learned in school, and a new hive mind threatens to rewrite the future.
Alex is a fighter, but pursued by both friends and an unknown enemy, it will take everything she has to fulfill her destiny. Desperate to save her little brother, she flees to the mountains surrounding her home, where the only chance for humanity has lain hidden for thousands of years.

Intriguing story line and easy to listen to
Yes, the story draws you in. It's fun to listen to mysteries again to see the story unfold knowing what the end will be. Also, Tara's voice is very easy to understand and listen to. I've listened to many audio books, and there are times when the tone of the voice is too low, or inflections are in strange places that I believe distract from the telling of the story. Tara is every bit as good as some of the paid actors who narrate for audio.
I think it is interesting hearing the author read their own stories (as long as they are talented enough to do so:)), because you experience the characters exactly how they had envisioned them. They created them, and now they are able to bring them even more to life.
My husband stayed up late and finished this book in 2 nights! He never does that. He was completely drawn in to the exciting plot. We are looking forward to listening to more from Tara Ellis.
