I am blown away. This is an intense ride that keeps you gripping the handlebar. You never know what will happen with each curve, and when the ride comes to a stop, your heart is pounding out of your chest.
You'll notice my lack of summary, because aside from the book blurb, I don't wish to give away any of the plot. It is so full of surprises at every twist and turn. It's hard not to say anything additional that won't ruin the fun of reading this series.
At first I was a little disappointed that the book didn't pick up right where book 1 left off. I wanted to know what happened, not about Gunther. Who wants to know the bad guy's story? But I forged on with the hopes I would get what I was looking for. The way Gunther's story unfolds shows you that he's not as ruthless as he's painted in book 1. When you discover his background, you start to feel sympathy for him. There were moments that made me laugh, like when he feels something in his heart and thinks he's having a heart attack. (this happens early, it's not a spoiler, I promise). But it makes you realize what a sad environment he was raised in that he doesn't understand emotions. I remained enthralled with his story, despite wanting to know what was going on with the other characters. We do finally get the continuation of the story from book 1. So many parts of this story will have you wanting to throw your book (or kindle, I don't recommend actually throwing either, though. The kindle might break, and the book is huge & would break something). You'll have quite the book hangover after all the crying. The ending will have you grabbing for book 3. Don't let the Zombie word turn you off from this series. I don't read much in the post-apocalyptic genre, but this series is full of sex, love, and happens to have some undead people roaming around in the background. The gore isn't described in such detail that you will be squeamish and your mind can make as much or as little of it as you wish. It's the relationships and the survival that drive these stories. Paranormal Romance lovers will enjoy reading something a bit different that is gripping, well written, and emotionally jarring. The series title Shattered Lives just may be referring to the reader, not just the characters.
After the 1st book you thought you couldn't live another guy .... That's till you meet the real Gunther and wow what a guy he meets Quinn at a fought time in the world but he feels different towards her once you finally find the story of Quinn and then Gunther you can't help but think who was I reading about before give me Gunther over Henry any day it's s must read you won't beable to put it down can't wait for the next instalment
When I opened this book, I went in hating Gunther. He was ultimately responsible for this mess. He pulled the trigger and set in motion this devastating existence. Where in Book One we get to know Henry and despite his afflictions, we feel for him and he tugs at your heart. Going in, I had nothing but rage for Gunther. Where Henry was scooped from a presumed orphan fate, Gunther was born into this existence. bred, trained and conditioned for missions just like this. He is a product of his birth and upbringing. As Gunther's story unfolds, my opinion starts to change. Not only that, he shows some varying degrees of compassion and remorse. Despite his wrongdoings, in his short tryst in the US, he has loss in his life as well. Just when you think you see a turn in his character, the truth of his actions is brought to the forefront. When Henry and Gunthers paths cross, tempers flare and the past is hard to overlook and move past. Will these men be able to coexist? or will the path of destruction continue?
I love Rissa's style of writing. It grips you and drags you into the story. This book is the perfect blend of zombie apocalpyse, romance, loss, conflict, intrigue and steamy sex to appeal to anyone. The scenes are graphic and make your pulse race and the pages flew by. Im really looking forward to the next installment in this series.
