Book Description

Death doesn't wait for our approval. Death takes us when it is ready. Nineteen-year-old Mora knows this all too well, living in a world where the dead have walked the Earth for the past 60 years. Mora is on a mission to save her village from the relentless greyskins, and there is only one man that can help her: Jeremiah of Screven.

As she travels the wastelands, she discovers a power within herself, a power she believes no other human possesses. That is, until she meets others like her – the ones who call themselves the Starborn. These super-humans are on a mission also: to destroy the undead greyskins, and take down the greedy Jeremiah.

Mora must now choose between the one who can keep her family safe, and those that can show her who she truly is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Caught me by surprise... February 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A friend of mine that writes recommended this book on her Facebook. I usually A) get bored with a story very easily and either give up or takes me an eternity to finish, or B) get completely sucked in. Since I just downloaded it on a whim I didn't read any review or plot line. (I know i'm such an impulse buyer) So I didn't know what to expect. At first I thought "ok a little different and almost cheesy". I got a "Hunger Games" kind of vibe when it came to the colonies, and I was waiting for it to end up like "Twilight". (gag me now, and yes I did read the whole Twilight series waiting for it to get better. Please don't lynch me twihards) Anyways, I ended up getting completely sucked in. I read the whole thing in less than two days. I haven't been that sucked in by a book in a long while. The pace was good, I think the plot was set up pretty decently for the most part, and you get attached to the characters. I loved the relationships between them all! I'm trying my best not to give any spoilers, but I'm a team Connor kind of girl. Trying my best not to give anything a way, but I'm curious to see how the rest of the story plays out relationship wise. I feel a twist coming that made me think as a writer (if it were me) I would totally get it, but at the same time as a girl I want to scream. LOL! Like I mentioned earlier, I bought this on a whim. So, when I was done it hit me that it was part of a series. My poor husband had to listen to me rant for a good hour or two about the book/characters and how I had to wait to see what happens next. I really in all honesty cannot wait for the next installment! Best of luck to the writer!

Glad it was free. Too much time spent rehashing the same conversations and thoughts over and over again so it takes FOREVER for the plot to advance and then, boom! You have to buy the second book. No thanks.

I enjoyed this work which has a zombie apocalypse context with a sci-fi backbone running through it. I'm not going to spoil the story, but I hope I'm not the only one to spot the 1760's-early 1770's run up to the American War of Independence metaphor which, to me, underpinned the story's treatment of how power out at the wild frontier can be mobilized and organized.

The story is related from the point of view of Mora, a spirited young woman who embarks on a lone, self-imposed quest to seek help for her embattled colonial community located out on the fringe of a post-apocalyptic frontier which is struggling to survive against warbands of hostile zombies. She hopes to secure an audience with the leader of a central organisation that can send them a protection force. But this assistance comes at a cost: heavy taxes and associated imposts. What line will she take when she learns other colonists are seeking to break free of this yoke? And how might her special abilities factor into the scenario?

I found Mora to be a sympathetic and relatable character even though, from time to time, she's somewhat vapidly presented. Consequently I wanted to see more depth and contrast to her personality on account of its vast untapped development potential.

Jason Morrow's writing is uncomplicated and has evidently been subject to considerable editorial polishing: the story thus flows easily and well. The end result will easily appeal to young adult readers and those of more mature age wanting to enjoy a creative story that is not too demanding in terms of both literacy and cognition. However readers looking for gritty realism, hard-core combat action, tight story twists and intensely developed interpersonal exchanges are likely to be moderately disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars It was ok.... August 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was a little frustrated by this book. The main character kept getting herself into horrible situations because of her own stupid actions. It was like yelling at the tv screen - don't go into the basement with just a flashlight! I found her either irretrievably stupid or obtuse. It was just annoying.

I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because it was well written.

Think the Hunger Games meets the Walking Dead told from a teen perspective. I found it hard to understand the main character.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding story. February 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story grabs you from the beginning. The story line embraces the fact that power can be both a force for good as well as a force for evil when abused. No spoiler, read and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars So much more than I was expecting. I am hooked! November 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I really liked this book. There was just enough backstory to understand where the story picks up. In a Dystopian future, a teenage protagonist is trying to keep her loved ones alive while faced with some brutal challenges. It's more than a heroine vs. villain story. It's the beginnings of a coming of age drama that will keep the reader engaged from beginning to end.

My only criticism of the book is that it is too short. One reviewer commented about " There are 2 guys and 1 girl... but ZERO sexual tension." I think the main character is too busy trying to grow up while figuring out who's telling her the truth to form any normal relationships. I can't imagine there's too much flirting going on in the midst of zombie hordes so I get the lack of development of that angle. Also, I believe this is aimed at a YA audience so the ambiguity of that storyline is appreciated for that reason. Suffice it to say that hormones come to the forefront at times.

This is a well thought out and crafted tale. Not your normal zombie apocalypse :) Can't wait to read the next one!

It was an okay read. It was a very simplistic form of writing but it did have some intriguing points to it. If you are looking for a simple, quick read this is it.
