Casey L. Bond breathed new life into some tired themes, and I was quite literally in a frenzy to devour Frenzy. It was a vivid, detailed, wonderful story of heartache, struggle, and love. I l adored Porschia, I wanted to throttle her mother (that woman!), and I loved the tender moments Porschia shared with her father and brother. Oh, and Mrs. Dillinger? My favorite!
Let's not forget the men in this book (and honestly, it would be impossible). Saul is tender and strong and protective without being an alpha, which was incredbily refreshing. I normally root for the bad boy but I am cheering for Saul. By the end of Frenzy, I was in love with Tage, whose struggle to cling to humanity broke my heart. And Roman? Smoking hot and dangersous as hell. There is a bit of a love triangle in these books (sometimes more like a rectangle) and I normally can't stand love triangles, but this one wasn't annoying because Porschia's feelings are always defined and we know who she wants to end up with.
I will say that it takes a little bit of time to fully grasp what is happening. What is a rotation? Why does Porschia wear colonial-style dresses? Why would night-walkers help the town? But just stick with it. Everything reveals itself by the middle of the story.
The writing is fabulous. The dialogue is smooth and authentic. The world-building is fantastic; I could see everything clearly in my mind. And the emotions that the writing evoked were abundant. I think I highlighted half of the book's words because they were either funny, poignant, or just simply gorgeous.
I can't recommend this book highly enough!
From a Reader's Perspective:
I liked the sassy main character, Porschia. She made me feel like there was hope when I was pretty sure none existed. There she sits with no technology, a broken world, and people surrounding her she can't trust. Yet, she's driven, sees the silver lining around the storm cloud, and loves unconditionally. I'd like to know her in real life. World building was amazing. I could picture the small village with its simple inhabitants who've been forced back to the ways of the pilgrims. There was never a dull moment, and I often found myself gripping the edge of my seat, waiting to see what would happen next. Pacing was perfect. This is a shorter story that you should be able to read in one sitting. Did I see the end coming? No. No I didn't. I was left with my jaw on the floor. I can't wait to read Frantic.
From an Editor's Perspective:
There are several tense jumps, comma splices, and run-on sentences, but nothing that threw me out of the story, and they were scattered out enough that I could ignore them. Most readers probably wouldn't even notice. Story line is consistent throughout.
1 Star for giving me a truly unique story.
1 Star for keeping me guessing.
1 Star for awesome world building.
1 Star for pacing and that amazing ending.
.5 Star for consistency.
-.5 Star for tense jumps and grammar issues.
Overall, 4.5 out of 5 stars. I always round up, not down, so this book gets a 5. Recommended for those looking for a new twist on a couple of old genres.
I have read quite a few books by author Casey Bond. I love the originality of her stories and the fact that I never know where she will go with each character or the plot. I have many times slammed my kindle shut and wanted to pull my hair out at some of the craziness that comes from her mind. LOL That's what makes her work so exciting to read and the fact that her charcters always have substance to them. Frenzy is no exception. The ending left my jaw hitting the floor!
"Now that he'd tasted eternal life, did he crave the empty solace of death?"
In the colony of Blackwater where Porschia lives, there are mysterious deaths that are being blamed on the night-walkers. Fears are high but the need for food is more pressing. Porschia must be strong and volunteer to go on rotation to bring in food from outside the walls. Not only does she have to be escorted by a night-walker, but beyond their safe haven are the infected that only care about eating the flesh of humans. I love that the story has both vampires and undead, zombie like creatures. Danger comes from all directions in this action packed story.
"When life was so fragile, and survival so difficult, rushing seemed like the thing to do."
Another thing that makes this book so great is the poetic way the author writes. Her words and descriptions flow so nicely. I could visualize the colony and the devastation outside the walls. I felt as if I was there watching everything transpire and not sitting reading a book on my sofa.Read more ›
