Seventeen-year-old Krista must quickly figure out how she’s going to survive in the zombie-destroyed world. The one advantage humans have is that the zombies hate humid environments, so they’re migrating west to escape its deteriorating effects. The survivors plan to construct a wall at North Platte to keep the undead out, and Krista has come to Nebraska to start a new life.
Zombies aren’t the only creatures she has to be cautious of—the other survivors have a dark side. Krista must fight not only to live but also to defend everything she holds dear—her country, her freedom, and ultimately, those she loves.
Join Krista in her quest to survive in this thrilling apocalyptic novel by Pembroke Sinclair.
This was a zombie book that wasn’t all about the zombies. This book has so many other elements and I’ll be the first to say it was refreshing.
Zombie books are not usually my thing. I have a deep rooted fear of Zombies and reading about them is about as far as I go. I have watched a few movies on the subject but not many. They give me terrible nightmares. Even though I am frightened by zombies, the idea of their existence intrigues me.
There are far more elements to deal with in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse than just surviving. Sadly, the zombies are not the only enemy. Often mankind will turn on each other in bouts of power hungry rage or to ration supplies in a only the strongest survive scenario.
This book had many of those elements. I also have to admit that I much prefer reading about the slow shambling zombies than the fast super human strength ones. Although if i am being honest, I think if zombies were to appear they wouldn’t be slow.
This book was enjoyable. The world building was great and believable. The characters have the right amount of depth to make the reader feel a connection. There is an adequate number of characters. The premise was well done and the pacing was perfect.
Superb book. I look forward to reading the next one.
I give it 5 stars.
