I don't know how Laura did it, but The First 7 might be even better than The Last 8 (which you all know I loved to pieces). I cried nonstop for the last few chapters, out of so much love and hope (and a tiny bit of pride for this wonderful writer girlfriend I have).

The conclusion to The Last 8. Clover and the group are back for the final stand. A fitting ending to well written young adult science fiction novels.
Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review this novel.

actual rating: 3.5/5

well, if you didn't LOVE the last 8 with all your heart and soul, don't waste your time reading this. it's an unnecessary sequel that does nothing to expand the story

The 100 but with aliens!

description

I thought I was being brave for saving the world. For surviving the aliens, for going out into space. For saving my planet. No one ever said I was brave to keep living.

The First 7 picks up not long after the ending of The Last 8. The Last Teenagers on Earth have ended an alien invasion that wiped out most of humanity and have left them to the stars trying to find a place where they could call home. Unfortunately, not all of the Universe is so welcoming. And then,

After reading The Last 8, it’s fair to say I was absolutely dying to get my hands on this one and the beginning did not disappoint.

It starts on an alien beach! An alien beach! It does not get any better. Except it does: an alien beach where the aliens worship dogs as gods!

The aftermath of what they suffered through in the last book is still something that they have to deal with and one of the big themes of this book is mental health and getting help.

Something I really liked as well as that the

I received an advanced copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed "The First 7" and actually liked it more than "The Last 8."

Where the first book felt like a slow burn that was taking forever, this one sat in the comfortableness of doing nothing (like the Harry Potter Golden Trio going camping in the last book but MUCH MUCH BETTER) and making you feel uneasy about it.

There were bits that felt too short and bits that felt a bit too long. I'm pleased the author was able

The First 7 is the ending to the Last 8 and oh my gosh was it an ending. All the things they suffered thru in the last book must be dealt with in this one. Clover and Violet lead two groups this book and it shows how things transpire for them. The LGTQA is still represented and overall this was a fitting end.

I can't give too much away but if you loved the First 8 I think that you will love the final to it.

3 for neutral. I didn’t request this book, maybe my toddler did by accident. Will update if I can get first and read both, but not my normal genre, being science fiction and honestly not sure how it was even requested. Sorry!

Review to come, but I just want to mention first that in the last 5% of the book, a song is referenced, so I put it on to finish off the book, and I damn near cried
