Last Chance is the second installment in the Rains series - a young adult science fiction series that readers are sure to love. Since this is the second book, I recommend reading the first book in the series, The Rains, beforehand. It's easier to understand what's happening and you'll get a chance to know the main characters. That's just my own opinion though. Right from the very start, this book was filled with non-stop action. There seemed to always be something happening, with no time to even breath. I could almost feel the fear and adrenaline that Chance was experiencing. 

The story is told from Chance's point of view, in an interesting form where each "chapter" was a separate "entry" - like in a journal of sorts. I liked how the author incorporated this writing style and I loved that it was told from the first person POV. By the end of the book, I felt very connected to Chance and even to the other two main characters - Patrick and Alex. All three were well rounded with distinct personalities and traits that made them feel very realistic. They had flaws like everyone does, and I felt that made them all the more accessible to the reader. They all had very close relationships with one another and I liked watching them grow and change as separate characters as well as with one another. 

The plot was hardcore action with lots of fighting and aliens. That normally isn't my cup of tea, but the author did such a fantastic job of bringing it all to life in front of my eyes that I couldn't stop reading. I wanted to find out more about the aliens, their purpose, what they wanted - everything. It was very well written and even though it obviously science fiction, the author managed to make it feel real and I was right beside Chance and the others throughout the whole thing. I definitely recommend this book and series to fans of the genre - especially those who love aliens and loads of action.
