After so much danger, Nessa and Anto can finally dream of a happy life. But the terrible attack on their school has created a witch-hunt for traitors -- boys and girls who survived the Call only by making deals with the enemy. To the authorities, Nessa's guilt is obvious. Her punishment is to be sent back to the nightmare of the Grey Land for the rest of her life. The Sdhe are waiting, and they have a very special fate planned for her. Meanwhile, with the help of a real traitor, the enemy come pouring into Ireland at the head of a terrifying army. Every human they capture becomes a weapon. Anto and the last students of his old school must find a way to strike a blow at the invaders before they lose their lives, or even worse, their minds. But with every moment Anto is confronted with more evidence of Nessa's guilt. For Nessa, the thought of seeing Anto again is the only thing keeping her alive. But if she escapes, and if she can find him, surely he is duty-bound to kill her......

The Invasion (The Call #2) Reviews
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.
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 until the book is officially released, but let's just say that The Invasion is much more horrific, dark and twisted than The Call, and I found myself on the edge of my seat wondering how on earth it was all going to end! ...more
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 of familiar characters throughout the book which made it feel very odd to see those familiar characters apart from Nessa for me. In general, I think there were too many new characters, and which I understand the n ...more
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 was as shocking and gripping as the first ones. A must, must read±
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 addition to Nessa and Anto who we knew from 'The Call'.
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 mysterious. For this book I had to stretch my disbelief so much it stretched thin at some points and some phrases like "he was drooling like a cartoon character" or "like a game glitching" or "hashtag OMG" completely to ...more
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 Sídhe themselves! I did find myself pushing through some of the slower parts, particularly in the middle before the big action set pieces were truly underway but the ending was fantastic and just how a story such as this should end. I wish we got more!
