Alien predators attack Europe. A deadly virus spawns an epidemic. And a clandestine organization conspires to profit from chaos and forge a New World Order.

In this heart-pounding finale of the H.A.L.F. series, Tex, Erika and the rest are in a race against time. In books one and two they fought for their lives. Now they battle to save us all.

Tex and Erika are again fugitives and running for their lives. But when Tex falls gravely ill, a Navajo healer is his only hope for survival. Tex emerges changed in mind and body but with vital information: how to stop the predatory M’Uktah from destroying those he has come to love.

Erika Holt seeks a respite from the threats to her life but hasn’t given up. As she and Tex launch a mission to shut down the galactic highway used by the invaders, she grows closer to her troubled human-alien hybrid companion. But what about her on-again, off-again boyfriend Jack?

Jack Wilson, along with his new friend Anna Sturgis, is determined to put an end to the Makers’ schemes for world domination. Complicating matters, the valuable medicine to counter the alien virus has been stolen.

As both alien and human forces line up against them, the destiny of all mankind is hand the hands of these young warriors. And time is running out.

“The latest satisfying addition to the H.A.L.F. series has something for everyone: exciting action scenes; great love stories; fascinating new aliens; and relatable characters fighting to save the world and find their places in it.” ~Alyssa H., Red Adept  


My Review:

I really enjoyed this series. I loved that the characters are complete. They don’t feel two dimensional and fake, they have their own identity and because of that they feel fleshed out like they could be real. They aren’t completely good and aren’t completely bad. This was a draw for me because I want to see more characters people can relate to in books and that means grey lines. This is basically humanities last hope. The last play in the game and it all rests on two peoples backs. That’s a lot to take on for anyone. I like alien stories. The book is full of growing up, action and change for the characters. The book doesn’t always do what you think it will do and thats nice. It really grows and that’s something not every writer is able to do.

The book is really for all ages and its got some really great characters. I think she did a great job in closing out the series. I look forward to the next book that she writes.
