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
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 into this strange, hopeless Ireland and the struggles its people were facing.
There's a little more world building in this one, which was great; it was sad but interesting to see how the rest of the Nation was faring, ...more
Excellent follow up to The Call and after reading this I'm sure to read everything that Peadar Ó Guilín ever writes!
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!
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 that there are no more!
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.
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 strongest involves my favorite character Nessa. Nessa is still front and center in The Invasion and despite her severely deformed legs, she is a force to be reckoned with. With the Grey Land revisited and humans finall ...more
