SYLO (The SYLO Chronicles) by D.J. MacHale

Release Date: 2013-07-02

The ultimate action-fueled end-of-the-world conspiracy trilogy from #1 New York Times bestselling author D.J. MacHale THEY CAME FROM THE SKY parachuting out of military helicopters to invade Tucker Pierce’s idyllic hometown on Pemberwick Island, Maine.   They call themselves SYLO and they are a secret branch of the U.S. Navy. SYLO’s commander, Captain Granger, informs Pemberwick residents that the island has been hit by a lethal virus and must be quarantined. Now Pemberwick is cut off from the outside world.   Tucker believes there’s more to SYLO’s story. He was on the sidelines when the high school running back dropped dead with no warning. He saw the bizarre midnight explosion over the ocean, and the mysterious singing aircraft that travel like shadows through the night sky. He tasted the Ruby—and experienced the powers it gave him—for himself.   What all this means, SYLO isn’t saying. Only Tucker holds the clues that can solve this deadly mystery.   LOOK TO THE SKY because Pemberwick is only the first stop.

Author, DJ MacHale discusses SYLO

 

Brandon read this book and LOVED it! 

Thoughts:

To be quite honest, I was a bit skeptical going into this book, however, in the end I was blown away by how well written the book was.  To begin with, the setting was just perfect and without it, some of my favorite parts of the book would not have been possible.  However, there were some parts of the book that I wish were explained.  Hopefully this will be covered in the sequel. 

This book not only manages to make you like the characters, but also makes you attached to them.  I was absolutely devastated when my favorite character was killed off.  Bunny would probably have my reaction…if they killed off Daryl Dixon on THE WALKING DEAD.  Yeah, it was that bad.

I loved this book , so much that I read it in one sitting, and eagerly await its sequel.
