My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Roo has been captured by aliens and taken aboard their ship in order to perform for them. The aliens are blood thirsty, they enjoy watching humans bleed and to perform means to survive being carved up night after night on a stage while an audience watches. Roo is determined he will not do as they say and will find a way to revolt.

Alien creepiness conquering the human race at it’s finest as far as the overall plot of the story goes. The human race is being wiped out by the incredible blood lust and losing it’s last hope of fighting back and surviving. As far as the horror of the story it was completely there. All of those alien invasion, experimenting on humans just got a little more horrific in this one.

The thing that I didn’t like about this read at all though was the fact that at 89 pages it is a short read but there are no chapters involved at all. The story is broken occasionally by **** between paragraphs here and there but I’m not a fan of the run it all together type of books. Also, told in first person this also made it stand out every time Roo is adding an I did or an I had I was seeing the I I I swimming around the page with very little dialogue throughout. I just felt that took away from some of my enjoyment of reading the story and had to get used to it while reading.

Overall, a “bloody” quick read for the alien invasion fans.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
