    When I read The Call about a year and a half ago now, I did so under the assumption that it was a good Halloween one-off, a haunting story about horrific, evil fairies known as the sdhe, who terrorized Ireland by spiriting all their children away to the grey land due to a sick, twist...

    I loved this book!!! I loved seeing Nessa and Anto again and being back in the world. This sequel was really well paced and totally kept me on the edge of my seat, I've not shouted at a book like that in a long time ;) I was really happy with everything, in fact the only bad thing is t...

    The Call is one of my favourite books about the Faery/Fairy folk - it came out of nowhere and slapped one hell of a story right into my hands. This follow up lacks some of the punch of the original (not entirely it's fault; a lot of that punch was that I'd never read anything like that...

    Don't want to write anything to spoil it, just know it's as scary, and as action-packed as The Call. Every scene as imaginative, every emotion as powerful. It's just not the story I wanted. ...

    I really enjoyed this duology. The Invasion wasn?t as strong as the first book (The Call) but it was still an enjoyable read. For whatever reason, I really love creepy, twisted, and dark books and this duology has it all. There are several different narratives in this book but the st...

    The island of Ireland has been sealed off from the rest of the world by a mystical barrier. Technology cannot penetrate it. The people of Ireland, the division between north and south no longer mattering, are under constant attack. Every teenager is "Called", summoned to another realm ...

    It doesn't take long to be immersed back into this fictional and frightening Ireland. I really didn't know where this story would go in the sequel but there were some surprises along the way. ...

    What can I say apart from the fact that this book was as amazing as the first one and I was bitterly disappointed to see that there isn?t a sequel. There was probably room for a sequel tbh as the end was a little unsatisfactory, but on the whole the book continued the story well and ...

    I think this was the perfect way to end this duology! It took me a chapter or two to re-immerse myself back into this dark (and quite twisted) Ireland with its population of faires known as the Sidhe. I liked how Aoife also became a narrator in some chapters in 'The Invasion' in additi...

    In my years reviewing books, I've read bad sequels, decent sequels, good sequels, and great sequels; however, I have never read a perfect sequel and that is exactly what 'The Invasion' is. I was scared that this was going to be one of those times when I'd be disappointed, because of ho...

    Holy hell what a mind-blowing sequel! Going into this book I was really unsure about what the plot was going to be and how it was going to top the first one, but honestly it only took a few chapters before I was completely and utterly hooked! I don't want to say too much just yet un...

    I thought this was an excellent follow up to The Call. Having read the first book I was prepared for grim and dark, and The Invasion pretty much delivers. The experiences of horror come this time not just from the Sidhe, but also from other humans. Of course they think Nessa is a t...

    ?I hear the Sdhe have found a way in...I hear that?s what it?s about. An invasion.? The Call is a fantastic book - brutal, inventive, and exciting! I expected more of the same with the sequel The Invasion, as well as plenty of new surprises. Well...I got surprises...

    *4.5 Stars This is a great follow up and finale to ?The Grey Land? duology. Just as dark and grim as the first one but with more development of the main characters, as well as the Sdhe themselves! I did find myself pushing through some of the slower parts, particularly in the mi...

    Actual rating 2.5 out of 5 This book was extremely disappointing. I was looking forward to finally seeing Anto and Nessa together, but instead they were apart the entire book. We never once got to see them together. I can?t even begin to explain how upset I was about that. Anto w...

    I love The Call so much that when I got my hands on a proof copy of The Invasion I gave over my day off to reading it, and what a great day it's been! Just as dark, beautiful, magical and original as its predecessor. I hope this series is as successful as it deserves to be. ...

    More like 2.5 stars if I?m going to be honest. This book was just all over the place and I didn?t really get what was going on most of the time. The biggest issue, however, was the fact that I just didn?t particularly care about any of the characters. If this book (and the ...

    I absolutely adored The Call, it?s so gory and chilling, and The Invasion is no different. It has the same feel, and created the urge to keep reading in order to find out what happened next! I really liked what happened to Nessa. Even though it?s obviously wrong, I feel it real...

    This was another fun one with LOTS of graphic violence and gore. There were a few issues with this one with the plot points but I still really liked and haven't seen anything like it in the YA category before. RTC ...

    (2.5) This was a weird mix of an interesting concept, a character that I couldn't help but feel for, and utter boredom and contempt for the rest of it. I enjoyed Nessa's chapters and they kept me intrigued and wanting to know what happened, but I honestly did not give a shit about a...

    Peadar is a master of combining thrilling horror with thoughtful characterisation, creating an addictive mix of wild savagery and messy human emotions. As with The Call, he drives The Invasion?s plot forwards at a tremendous pace whilst adding just the right amount of intimate scenes...

    Another really fun/terrifying/unpredictable story in this series. I believe this is the end of the series, and as finales go it wasn't a favorite, but I did enjoy it for the most part. The overall atmosphere of the story is very different. You don't get to see Nessa interact with a lot...

    6/10 It's so sad but I didn't like this book as much as the first one. I really really wanted to like it which is why it bums me out as much as it does to only give it three stars. I liked the first book even though there were still some answers left but it was okay because it was mys...

    Usually when I pick up a sequel some time after reading the first book, it takes a while to get back into the flow of the story, to remember the world and the characters and all the little things that make the story unique. Not with this book. Two pages in I was already sucked back int...
