One thing that should be noted is that this is a very gory book. There are also some "adult situations" in regard to violence that might be a bit much for younger readers, or those who are squeamish. One example follows:
**** SPOILER ALERT **** We find a man, his wife, and 2 children in a cage. They are intended to be food for those who captured them. The man knows it, raises a fuss, and is first bludgeoned and then shot in front of his wife and children. ****** End Spoiler Alert *****
This is only one example of multiple similar situations. But if this type of thing doesn't bother you terribly, or if it's what you expect in post-apocalyptic fiction, then this one's worth picking up! Highly Recommended!
I really enjoyed this book--ate it up, in fact. I found myself sneaking in pages as it kept infiltrating my head-space when I really should have been working.
When it comes to writing in the voice of a child, Novak nails it. My daughter, Brynn, is close to Megan's age, so I can completely relate to Megan's inner dialogue and even her actions--I'd expect the same from Brynn if she was thrown into this terrifying world.
I'm intrigued by "blueeyes" and really wish I knew more about him, even though you get small pieces of his past, there are still plenty of questions that remain unanswered. I look forward to the next book in the series because, truth be told, the ending kinda pissed me off. Sorry Novak. Not that it's not great, but it just leaves me hanging there.
Overall, this book was pretty great. There's plenty of action--blood, guts, and general asskickery, keeping me moving through the book at record speeds. There's also a painful innocence that makes the story more believable, and yeah, maybe I cried a little... just a little.

I also loved the foreshadowing in the book. Novak clearly set this book up for a trilogy and I can't wait for the next books to come out. I'm dying (again, pun intended) to see what he does with these characters. How the hell is he going to salvage their fate after the way he left them at the end of this book?
Hands down, five stars.
