This book has been a long time coming for me! I have been eagerly awaiting this book and trust me it was well worth the wait!!! The author has done something very interesting and original here in "Mortality"!

We have two stories in one in this book. It's about two different girls living through the zombie apocalypse and how survival is the number one goal they have in common. But towards the end we get to see the purpose of the separate stories and how their worlds collide. I have never read a book like this and I really enjoyed getting two stories in one, then watching how they come together! Brilliant addition to this book and smart thinking for the author!

Okay, So here's the plot:

Savannah's Story!

First story starts of where the prequel left off after a bunch of people from this community called "Ravencrest" and some outsiders from other states come together to clear out and secure this high school from zombies. Their's well over two hundred people in this school and things are tight, but still livable. But one thing they lack is one of the most important things humans could need. Medical supplies! So Savannah and a group of her friends (all boys) agree to head to the pharmacy to search for medical supplies. While their out in search for the supplies the school gets ambushed by hundreds of Z's (Zombies) and Savannah and her group gets separated from the survivors that had to leave the school. So they have to endure many struggles and hardship through the journeys but one thing they never realized is that the dead may not be the only threat out their, and that the living might very well be the ones to fear!

When all seems lost in the world Savannah meets one boy that might offer a new life! Hope to all people!

Mortality by Kellie Sheridan

I've never read a zombie book and since watch Walking Dead I thought I might try one. I have nothing to compare this to but I will say that Kellie Sheridan has written a really good book. Her writing flows extremely well, character development is written well and you get to learn a bit of the background on each of the main characters. Mortality is like reading two books in one, it quite interesting.

You first get swept into Savannah's story, right from the start I really enjoyed reading about Savannah and her friends. Then we meet Zarah, who is more or less alone now and saved by a young man named Liam.
Savannah is with a group of people who are living in a school and so far they are safe from the zombie. And before I forget these zombies's are not like the ones on tv, some of them are stronger, faster and appear to be a bit smarter. There is a reason for this but you need to read and find out more. So one day Savannah and a few of her friends are asked to run into town to get some medical supplies from the local drug store, they are just thrilled to finally asked to go and do something. So they head off to the drug store and Savannah comes up with the idea they should stop by and check out the medical centre first she really figures that the zombie's who were they might be gone. Well you know what they say about good intentions things from here just get bad. It's heartbreaking at times I felt so sorry for Savannah as she feels so guilty for what happens next.

Then there is Zarah who is sitting in class checking out the new boy Liam when they find out about the Zombie's. Liam gets Zarah out of their school safely and she heads home. When things get really bad for Zarah, she calls Liam to come and get her.

Format: Paperback
It's no secret (I think...) that I like zombies. I like to read about them, watch them on tv, and plan for when they are here. So when I saw this book on NetGalley, I was all like, "Oh hell yeah, let's check it out." And what I found was quite a different zombie book than any I've read.

It starts out with Savannah. She's a teen girl, around sixteen years old. The world has become over-run with the zombs and she lives in the local highschool with a couple hundred survivors. Seems like a pretty good set up, to me. Although I should mention that there isn't much to go on, I just think a building like that would offer a lot as far as a residence for a large group of people. A couple recon teams are out, and they need supplies, so they send out four teens to get more. Savannah, Alex, Zack, and Pierce (who is only fourteen...) This seemed a little unlikely to me. There is no one else to go out, and they are going to send the only people left to go get medical supplies? As unlikely as this scenario seems to me, I'm still digging on Savannah. She's young, independent, and family-less. She also has this inner driven need to do something. She's the perfect heroine for a zombie novel. I decide right away that I'm on her side.

And then we meet Zarah, who is also a highschool student, but in a different city. She gets rescued from her highscool by her crush, Liam. They take off on his motorcycle, and they are on their own...for a bit anyway. I'm not really sure how I felt about Zarah. I think I liked her. I don't feel like I really got to know her as well as Savannah. It felt more like her story was prep for the point when the paths of these two girls crossed. For a large part of the book, I just got annoyed when it switched to Zarah's story from Savannah's.
