The Culling (The Slave Girl Chronicles, #1)The Culling by J.C. Andrijeski
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book Blurb:
Jet is a 19-year-old skag, one of the humans still living free on Earth following an invasion of creatures called the Nirreth. Squatting in the ruins of Vancouver, Canada, Jet and her family eke out an existence underground, hiding from the culler ships. No one knows where the ships take the people they take, but they never return. When a culler finds Jet, she may discover the truth the hard way.

My review:
This first book in the Slave Girl Chronicles series is really more of a novella than a full length book. 

Jet is a young human woman living in a future world in which we have destroyed the planet and been invaded by a race of aliens who now control everything. She's been hiding out with her mother and younger brother along with some others who are simply trying to survive and not be captured and sold into slavery. This is where the story begins.

I really liked this first book in the series, although I didn't quite like where the author chose to end it. But there is lots of action, suspense and intrigue. I can't wait to read the next book.
