    1. I really liked this one! I will warn you that the pace is a rather slow pace, and the book may not be for everyone because I am sure there will be complaints about some of the subjects within BUT I don't care because it was so good. Eighth did get pretty emo at times, but I probably would too in his situation. The bond between Eighth and Raven wasn't always flowers and roses either which felt more real to me.The one thing out of everything that I was like noooooooo was this line "That's a lot of [...]

    2. Raven, her boyfriend and his twin brother were sent away to a summer camp when the teens got into some trouble at home. While at camp however the attacks from those known as the Nahx began happening around the world. With little communication those at the camp chose to stay where they were and hope for rescue but that comes to an abrupt end when Raven's boyfriend is found with a Nahx dart in his back, it seems their safe haven is no longer safe. Eighth has no voice and no name, only his rank to [...]

    3. I actually found the first half okay but the ending brought it from 3* to a 4* because it really left you determined to get your hands on book two! I love sci-fi so I ate this one up rather quickly. The plot is intriguing and the characters are okay but I do hope to connect more with them in book.

When a human kills her the directives that hum in his mind loose their power Sixteen year-old Raven is away at court mandated summer camp where the outdoors life is meant to get her head on straight. Instead the armored Nahx invade and they are left with the instructions to "shelter in place." Everything changes when Raven's boyfriend is killed by a Nahx. Thrown together wh [...]

    5. Let me start off this review by telling you all a little fact about myself. I like to begin reading new books at midnight. I don't know why, but something about inconvenient hours of night makes me want to pick up a good story and start reading. So, it was at around midnight on a Saturday, well, technically Sunday, that I decided that I was going to read this book. I lied and said I would only read a few chapters, but we know that's never how it goes. So, someway, somehow, I ended up reading thi [...]

    6. This was a thrilling alien invasion story with a diverse cast of characters. We get a gay couple and characters from different ethnic groups. The mysterious aliens were very captivating and I loved how they used sign language to communicate. The pace was slower than I usually like, but I didnt mind too much since it worked for the story. The way the story and the characters were written made this crazy alien story feel more real. The grief and hope gave it a lot of depth and the whole wildernes [...]

    7. Really good. I picked this up because it was on Alex Brown's best YA SFF list for 2017 over at Tor and it was one of a few on there I hadn't yet read. Also the author is Canadian:)This alien invasion book focuses on character development and lots of inner dialogue about emotion rather than action scenes, so if that's your thing, you might enjoy it. The ending was great, and has me looking forward to the sequel.

    8. 4.5 stars"Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall."I'm quite taken aback by how much I loved Zero Repeat Forever. It delivers everything one would hope for in a science fiction involving an alien invasion such as:-aliens (of course)-weird alien suits and weapons-lots of frightening post-apocalyptic scenarios that make you ponder the fragility of the human race-some spunky kids who are fighting terrible odds of survival but never quit trying But what I didn't expect at all was the beauty I wo [...]

    9. "There is no age of majority after an apocalypse."The pitch for ZERO REPEAT FOREVER is basically THE FIFTH WAVE meets BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. This is pretty damn accurate so I should be over the moon, right? Wellllll.His bluster gives me a strong next-to-die vibe, like he's that guy in the movie who has to fly one last mission, or retires the next day. I wish I weren't sitting right across from him, in range of any potential blood splatter or flying organs.Even though things aren't the same, the s [...]

    10. NEVER have I been this happy to have stuck by a book til the very end! This book did such a 360 & now I'm left NEEDING BOOK 2!!!!! Review to come shortly, thoughts I have a plenty! ;) (Blog link is in the bio)UPDATED FULL REVIEW: 4.5 STARS!!!!Full review can also be found on Lair Of Books: lairofbooksblog.wordpressPLOTZero Repeat Forever is THE book that demanded patience of me in return for a nice pay-off. Slow paced yet instantly addictive, I couldn’t quit this book. The story follows Ra [...]

    11. I hate when I'm reading a book, thinking it's a stand-alone, only to discover that is definitively not. What I don't hate, though, is this book. It was a lot of things I wasn't expecting: the beginning of a series and a contemporary sci-fi novel set in real world Canada. For some reason, I was envisioning a futuristic world being invaded by alien forces, not present-day. But it so works. If I'm being honest, maybe even better than The 5th Wave, especially after that mind-fuck of a final book. Bu [...]

    12. The world is gone. It was taken from us, the way a massive heart attack takes a life. Swiftly, ruthlessly, almost as though there is nothing personal about it.HOLY. SHIT. YOU GUYS. There are not enough words to properly describe how much I LOVED this book! And the more time that passes, the more I love it. I can't get it out of my head. I thought about it all day the following day after I finished it. I just can't stop thinking about it! It's really gotten under my skin in a way that not many bo [...]

    13. Rating: 4.5Oh.Dear.God. This was a constant whirlwind of emotions! I stared at the last page for a good five minutes after finishing it. If this does not qualify as a book hangover then I don't know what it does.It was absolutely incredible. The writing was superb, captivating, and surprisingly addictive. I read this 500-page bad boy in a day. A post apocalyptic/alien invasion tale narrated from two different POV -- Eighth's (Alien) and Raven's (Human). The story kickstarts right after an alien [...]

    14. This book was pitched to me as 'CanLit re: Alberta' and 'aftermath of Alien invasion" and all I could think about was Canadian The 5th Wave I'm okay with:Eighth = Silencer/Evan WalkerRaven = Corvus = Cassiopeialalalalala I am trash.

    15. Thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada, via Netgalley for allowing me to read and review this book in exchange for an honest review.Before I get into the review, can we just sit and appreciate the beauty that is the Zero Repeat Forever‘s cover? It’s beautiful and I love it. I loved the cover before I read the book, and now that I’ve finished the book, there is so much significance in the artwork. Even the lettering. THE COVER IS BRILLIANT.I was initially drawn into Zero Repeat Forever by [...]

    16. This review and more can be found on Living for the BooksFor some reason, alien books have never really been my thing. I think it's because whenever I read something involving aliens it's really weird. I didn't remember enjoying The 5th Wave, even though I never ended up finishing that series, so I was intrigued by the pitch that this is that meshed with Beauty and the Beast. I'm a sucker for fairy tale retellings and especially for that specific retelling, so I knew I had to give this book a sh [...]

    17. Review also on Christina Reads and BlogsRating: 4.5 starsI had a hard time getting into Zero Repeat Forever initially. It's slow paced in the beginning, but once it picks up, I couldn't put it down. It's definitely more character driven than plot driven, but once the characters find their motivation or destination, the action picks up a lot more. If you're having the same trouble I was starting this book, do not stop reading it. You will be so happy you kept with it!The characters! Raven and Eig [...]

    18. Zero Repeat Forever is the Canadian version of The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. Both are stories of an alien invasion that feature a young woman as she navigates the new world and eventually closely interacts with an alien. The difference between the two stories, and what I think makes Zero Repeat Forever stand ahead of The 5th Wave, is a mixed race (black/white) protagonist and the writing style.The main character, Raven, is a mixed race young woman with a troubled past looking to redeem herself. R [...]

    19. I love a good YA sci-fi every now and then and the title and cover completely drew me in when I spotted this on NetGalley. Unfortunately, like most other readers have pointed out, this reminded me a lot of the Fifth Wave, which I read not that long ago. The pace was very slow as well. Now, I don’t always mind a slow book and I was intrigued enough to finish the novel, but it was beyond sloooow. Like "main characters don't meet until 50%" slow.I found the world-building and character developmen [...]

    20. Thanks to Simon and Schuster Canada and NetGalley for an electronic ARC of this novel, in exchange for an honest review.Raven is a teenager, working with a few of her friends at a summer camp in order to honour her community service hours issued to her by the judge. However, before the camp gets underway a group of heavily armoured creatures (Raven and her friends call these strangers “The Nahx”) invade the camp, and Raven and her friends are on the run for their lives. Eighth is a Nahx, and [...]

    21. Reseña completa en: elcaosliterario.eRaven me gustó como personaje por su naturalidad a la hora de afrontar la situación ya que en ningún momento se asemeja a una superheroína sino a una chica joven que intenta adaptarse a la situación luchando por sobrevivir a la invasión. En algunos momentos, sobre todo al comienzo, su comportamiento inmaduro es algo que provoca un poco de rechazo.De Octavo me sorprendió todo: su angustia, sus pensamientos y su deseo por hacerse un hueco en el mundo ad [...]

    22. I received an eARC via Netgalley from the publisher. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of this review.After spending just under a week reading Zero Repeat Forever by G.S. Prendergast, I’m not really sure how I feel about it. My initial reaction was that I loved it, but now that I sit to write the review, I find that maybe I didn’t love it as much as I originally thought. Zero Repeat Forever is told in dual POV and takes place over the course of a year after an alien [...]

    23. I applied for this ARC through Edelweiss and was turned down. So when everyone was standing in line for the Wonder Woman ARC at Yallwest 2017, I was in line for this!I'm always on the lookout for smart, well written young adult science fiction and without a doubt Zero Repeat Forever fits into that category. In fact, it rather defied my expectations. I've been finding it hard to connect with books recently, taking a few days to get through the first 100 pages. For this read, 150 pages went by as [...]

    24. Eighth is Nahx who has no voice and no name. He has only his rank and his primary duty to protect his Offisde. When she is killed, he begins to remember snippets of a former existence. Raven, Tucker and Topher are sent to a remote summer camp after a prank ends badly and they have a choice between the camp or juvie. While they are at camp, the Naxh invasion begins and they and the rest of their group must survive on their own. They join a community holed up underground in an abandoned military s [...]

    26. Creo que todos hemos imaginado alguna vez cómo sería una invasión alienígena. Si la salvaje emoción de compartir el universo con otra especie estaría a la altura de nuestras expectativas sobre un encuentro intergaláctico. ¿Sobreviviríamos o acabaríamos siendo pasto de apetitos superiores?Es la pregunta del millón, cuya versión de la respuesta formula esta autora que se atreve a reubicar el gran evento en tierras canadienses y con una aspirante a delincuente mestiza como protagonista. [...]

    27. This review was originally published on Spinatale ReviewsFor some reason, I thought that Zero Repeat Forever would be a fast-paced action-filled science fiction adventure. It was a low slower than I had expected but I loved how the author delved into the inner turmoil of both Eighth and Raven, exploring how the invasion affected both of them. There is still some action but it takes backseat to the emotional journey of the characters. This riveting series debut ends with a bang. There are just en [...]

    28. ltimamente Gran Travesía está apostando por libros de ciencia ficción y sus últimas publicaciones en juvenil cuentan con una premisa con gran potencial.Este mes de febrero llega Cero se repite siempre de una autora todavía desconocida aquí y que ha resultado ser una lectura bastante buena.Hacía tiempo que no leía algo sobre invasiones extraterretres. ¿Gobiernos opresores? Sí. ¿Realidades virtuales, mundos fantásticos o viajes galácticos a otros planetas? También. Pero creo que desd [...]
