Book Description

Mirra Mantle knows there is something better in the world than what she sees. She and her twin brother, Burrow, battle to survive in a harsh dystopian existence. Like many teens they deal with the everyday pressures of school and work, a widowed parent, and relationships.

In their lives, however, work is forced hard labor, education is painful indoctrination, their father is a sacrificial addict, and their mother may have been murdered. There is also a little problem with a zombie plague that has destroyed most of their world.

The Mantles are part of the Freerunners, a group of eclectic, like-minded young adults. On the streets brimming with horror, the Freerunners yearn for a normal life and fight to protect themselves from the vicious undead and a totalitarian government. Skilled at parkour and the use of archaic weapons the Freerunners prepare to make their stand. Mirra is madly in love with the leader of the Freerunners, Poe. Their relationship struggles to bloom in this barren world.

Where will they run?

5.0 out of 5 stars One of My Favorites February 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to admit that when I first read the description for this story and saw the words "zombie plague" I was leary of reading it. I'm not a fan of zombies. However, I gave it chance because of the dystopian/science fiction elements that appeared to be in the story as well.

I was not disappointed. While I can get sucked into a story and thoroughly enjoy the read - and want to read it again and again - it is rare that a book makes me cry - big fat tears. Yes. A zombie story made me cry like a baby.

My attention was immediately snatched from the first page and the story didn't let go until the end. The reader is immediately immersed into this dystopian world of government lies, conspiracies, and fear. The suspense rolled over me page after page and I couldn't wait to see what would happen to the Freerunners next - the group of young people who fought against the oppression of the High Council and the Overlanders.

With the animal-like Posessors and the somewhat brain dead Less Thans, the fight for the Freerunners hits them on all sides - above and below. The Overlanders are watching their every move, and the Posessors are simply trying to eat them.

I honestly would recommend this book to anyone - not just dytopian or science fiction or zombie fans. This book is simply amazing and I have no complaints or negative thoughts about it. I was blown away and like I said before, I cried big tears at the end because of the horrors and determination of the characters to win. Very powerful and emotional ending.

The ending seems to be set up perfectly for a sequel and I do hope there is one. I will read the story just because Mr. Cain wrote it, and just because it's a Freerunners story. Mr. Cain made me fall in love with a zombie story and I want more!

This book is an easy read. Sure to be a best seller. Once I began, I could not put it down. Mirra is amazing. This story has something for everyone. It is packed with action, suspense and romance. If you like horror the posessors are for you. Steampunk and parkour for the young at heart. Don't let this one pass you by.

More About the Author

Joseph Chandler Cain was born in the shadows of Miami, FL. Growing up in that urban environment planted the seed for the dystopian cityscape he has written about in his debut novel FREERUNNERS. His fascination with horror was piqued when he snuck Edgar Allan Poe books from his mother's bookshelf at a very young age. As he meandered through Florida living from coast to coast to coast again, his fascination with urban legends and the macabre escalated to soaring levels. He honed his craft as a freelance reporter and developing children's writing programs. He has worked fighting fires, chasing bad guys and demons, examining the dead, and peering into stranger's lives. Now he writes about the images that dance in his head. Some are real memories, others nightmares, but that is for you to decipher.
