Sleeping with the enemy

An alien invasion, domestic abuse, and self-identity lie at the heart of G.S. Prendergast’s first sci-fi novel


Zero Repeat Forever

G.S. Prendergast

Simon & Schuster Canada, Ages 14+

THE FIRST NOVEL in G.R. Prendergast’s Nahx Invasions series introduces readers to a dystopian Earth under attack from an alien species. No one knows why the Nahx are invading, only that the siege is ruthless and devastating. At the centre of the story are Raven and Eighth – two characters on opposite sides of the war who become unlikely allies.

Eighth is a low-ranking foot soldier in the Nahx army. When the book opens, he’s disoriented, the result of waking up in the middle of a battle. He’s also struggling with directives being fed into his mind by a higher authority through a newly implanted device, and residual thoughts and feelings from before his mind was altered. As these old feelings are swept away, they are replaced by rage, hatred directed at humans, and loyalty to his Nahx Offside (partner).
