The enemy is different. The enemy is us. They’re downright here; they’re up there, they’re nowhere. They need the Earth; they want us to have it. They got here to wipe us out; they came to shop us.
However below those riddles lies one fact: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion those who used to stay on our planet. Betrayed first by using the Others, and now using ourselves.
In these closing days, Earth’s final survivors will want to decide what’s more essential: saving themselves . . . Or saving what makes us human.
praise for The last superstar
“Yancey’s prose remains achingly precise, and this grows heavier, tighter, and more not possible to put down because the clock runs out…this blistering finale proves the fact of the first two volumes: it was in no way about the aliens.”—Booklist starred overview
“A haunting, unforgettable finale.”—Kirkus evaluations
“Yancey doesn’t hit the breaks for one second, and the movement is severe, but the language continually remains lyrical and cute. It’s a satisfying end to an outstanding trilogy, actual to the characters and the world Yancey created.”—enjoyment Weekly
