He has no voice, or name, only a rank, Eighth. He doesn’t know the details of the mission, only the directives that hum in his mind.
Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall.
His job is to protect his Offside. Let her do the shooting.
Until a human kills her…
Sixteen-year-old Raven is at summer camp when the terrifying armored Nahx invade, annihilating entire cities, taking control of the Earth. Isolated in the wilderness, Raven and her friends have only a fragment of instruction from the human resistance.
Shelter in place.
Which seems like good advice at first. Stay put. Await rescue. Raven doesn’t like feeling helpless but what choice does she have?
Then a Nahx kills her boyfriend.
Thrown together in a violent, unfamiliar world, Eighth and Raven should feel only hate and fear. But when Raven is injured, and Eighth deserts his unit, their survival comes to depend on trusting each other…

1. What is on your nightstand?
The Awkward Path to Getting Lucky by Summer Heacock. I got a signed arc of it at ALA and I’m finally starting it.
2. What author would you totally fan?
I’ve met a lot of my idols and been reasonably civilized. I’d like to try again with Margaret Atwood because last time I met her I was only 20 and all I could do was squeak like a guinea pig.
3. What makes you cringe?
Seeing other people be hurt or humiliated. I hate the viral videos that riff on this kind of thing.
4. Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I do plot some of my books but not all of them. Zero Repeat Forever was a go with the flow book, but my last one Pinch Me was carefully plotted.
5. Is there a word you love to use?
Juxtaposition is one of my favorites. I managed to use it in Audacious but I doubt I’ll get another chance.
