Lord of the Flies meets War of the Worlds in this postapocalyptic tale of two teens and a young girl with amazing powers who must stop the aliens' mysterious plan.

Earth has been conquered by an alien race known as the Assembly. The adult human population is gone, having succumbed to the Tone - a powerful, telekinetic supersignal that has reduced them to a state of complete subservience. But the Tone has one critical flaw: it only affects those over the age of twenty, which means that there is one group left to fight - teens.

Holt Hawkins is a bounty hunter, and his current target is Mira Toombs, a treasure seeker who has escaped from Midnight City after being sentenced to death. It's not long before Holt bags his prey, but their instant connection isn't something Holt bargained for - and neither is the Assembly ship that crash - lands near them shortly after he captures Mira. Venturing aboard despite Mira's objections, Holt finds a young girl who can't remember anything except her name: Zoey.

The three soon begin an adventure through alien-conquered North America, encountering young freedom fighters, powerful artifacts that seem magical, pirates and brigands, and frightening mutated creatures of the night, all while trying to stay one step ahead of the Assembly. As Zoey starts to exhibit amazing powers, Holt and Mira realize that this young girl just may be the key to stopping the alien invaders.

Midnight City is the breathtaking first book in the Conquered Earth series, which chronicles three young people and their journey through a dangerous world they are trying to save.

    " This is what I thought about the whole time I was reading this book- food. No large group of people let alone children could survive without hunting or farming.you can argue they survived off scavenging but where are the professional food gatherers? How did they discover the strange lands and develop the skills to use artifacts while building their city? These are teens and children. They would have reverted to savages and more likely ate each other instead. "

    " I'm not much of a sci-fi fan myself, but this book turned me into one. A riveting yet dark world where the adult population is taken over and the only ones that are not in control is children. The characters in the books are very enjoyable that I could put the book down until the last page. I cannot wait for the next book of the series and more books to come! "

    " SOOOO GOOOOOOOOD! This book was just really good. I loved it. Although the whole captor/captive love story and post apocalyptic dystopian world is a total cliche, it hasn't been overdone too abundantly in recent times as say, Faeries, Angels, Vampires and werewolves have been. I am SO done with those. This was a pretty interesting post apocalyptic story that did a good job of keeping the reader guessing for a loooong time. Although, a few of the secrets were still kept by the end of it, like how Holt got mixed up with the menagerie, or if it was, not particularly well. All in all, a fantastic read, especially if you're into post-apocalyp "

    " Very enjoyable; interesting post-apocalyptic world. Wanted more about the aliens, what their purpose was/is, who they are...next book, perhaps? "
