In the future, only one rule will matter:
Don’t. Ever. Peek.
Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed — arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die.
Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know — especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.
We meet good old aliens here again. The weird thing for me is that most of dystopians are connected with something paranormal like vampires and some other creatures but everyone keeps forgetting good ol' aliens. Don't be like that - you all remember little green creatures. Yeah but they're not like that here. They look like a real humans as it's easier for them to coexist with humans like that. Every night aliens visit human and there is only one rule Don't. Ever. Peak. but Ari does that. That night she discovers something that changed her completely. She never new that aliens were so close to them. Soon a lot of things start to happen on Earth and Ari must pick a side. Will she go with her own specie or maybe change sides.
This was a interesting read for me. It had some ups and downs. Generally it has some new elements that I haven't seen before but still it has a lot of standard dystopian elements. But the main thing here is that I'm dying to read the sequel. A new world is calling for me!
Rating: 3.5 stars.
