Here's the set-up:

If you had three days’ warning of the end of civilization and a safe place to hide:
What would you take with you? Who would you save?

And who would you leave behind?

Henry Willingham and his friends have three days to make the most terrifying decisions of their lives. The world has been infected by an inescapable living nightmare of alien vegetation that will replace all life on Earth. They must get everyone they love safely underground into a fallout shelter. There's not enough time. There’s not enough room for everyone. Who will they save? Who will they leave behind?

How will they live with the consequences?

After hiding underground for a year, the last three survivors must brave the otherworldly infestation and travel through what used to be upstate New York struggling for their lives and their humanity.---82,000 words

From the Reviews:

Isabela Morales says: "There's nothing fun about the end of the world-but there might be something beautiful. The alien "invaders" of this unique science fictionish novel are exactly what the title tells us, Luminous and Ominous, a ravenous plant species with a mesmerizing beauty and a will to live as strong-or perhaps stronger-than any human survivor. And therein lies the problem for our protagonists: not just surviving in a new world, but preserving their very sense of what it means to be alive, and be human.

And reviewer Marie J. Post says:  What? Weird alien vegetation takes over the world? You're kidding me, right? 

At least, that's how I felt in the first few pages of Luminous and Ominous. Within a few pages I was sucked right into that world and didn't come up for air until I read the whole thing.
