Every situation no matter how simple is described so incredibly well that I don't just feel the characters, I'm right there in the room. I know who they are. I know what drives them and what their fears are. I feel their joys and their sadness as if they're close friends.
To say I cannot wait for the next book may be incredibly selfish on my part because this one has only just been released but sometimes we have to cling to hope as well as the beauty in life.
This sister series is set in New York, in the city, rather than out in the country and we meet Sylvie, Grace, Maria, Jorge, and Eric at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. The story is told through Sylvie and Eric's POVs. Eric is Cassie's (from UTEOTW) brother, and Maria is Penny's mother.
So far, I'm loving this gentler style of how this group survives. There's not a lot of heavy action, but there is a lot of learning how to survive a zombie apocalypse and creating of communities (and families!).
The character developments really give you a chance to get to know everyone and I managed to fall in love with them all. In her last series, SLF broke my heart a few times, so I keep waiting for her to do the same here, so although I'm extremely eager to read the next book, I'm just a little bit skeered.
I bought both the ebook and the audio and would switch back and forth depending on what I was doing. Major props to Therese Plummer and Luke Daniels on their brilliant performances as Sylvie and Eric. And the narration style was brilliant as Therese did ALL the female voices and Luke did all the male voices. I have cringed at some of the voices used when women try to do men's voices and visa versa. This book narration was genius! I never cringed once and just got lost in the story.
I was extremely curious going into this book about how Eric and Silvie's paths would cross, and how their interaction, and relationship would be knowing Eric was attached to someone according to the other series. Their stories are intertwined with precision and creativity. Another fantastic read!
Mordacious starts off with Sylvie in the hospital with her mother, that is in the later stages of death. What I loved about this story was that the author gave Sylvie a connection with the first series - in a round about way in the beginning- by connecting Sylvie and Grace with Maria (Penny and Anna's mother). Then enter Eric - Cassie's brother. I'm so glad this series focuses on NYC because we know in the first book that Eric was trying to get to Cassie, but due to loss of communication devices, we never knew what happened. This book takes you on a ride, but it's so good.
You don't have to read the first series first to begin this book. They each have their own entities, but at some point I do recommend it. The characters are very well written and it's an wonderful adventure of survival as is this one. I patiently await the second book- Peripeteia - but it is going to be a long wait until 2017. Until then, read this series and the other- it's well worth the read!! 5 stars
