The Last Girl on Earth; Alexandra Blogier

The Last Girl on EarthThe Last Girl on Earth by Alexandra Blogier
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The premise is good: Earth has been taken over by an alien species and humans no longer exist. Li, however, was rescued by her "father" and he and his other daughter spend time training Li and protecting her from being detected. Time is running out as her schooldays end and the start of her mandatory military service starts.

What fails is the execution: the characters are uninteresting. The fact that this is an incredibly advanced race and yet no one figures out Li is human doesn't fit. And the romances don't work (one is abusive, the other unbelievable). Plus, the twist at the end? Nope nope nope.
