If I were to raise quibbles, it would be over the stability of wind energy as a replacement for regular sources. But that is an unimportant minor point. Reestablishing electricity is critical to the plot since both leads make heavy use of their smartphones and June uses her computer to earn income.
Possible Spoiler Alert: I did like the interesting imagery of the cure for the "zombie disease." It is a true image of what all of us need to overcome the darkness of sin.
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
That being said, I was pleasantly surprised. I was looking forward to finishing it after I started and almost immediately this book's premise is set -- explosions all over North America that wiped out major cities and the story focuses on Caleb and June, teenagers who are more than just friends.
For me, sometimes the story lagged in the first half of the book, but once you get to that half way mark, where I don't want to spoil it but more is established about the effects of this new society -- things then start to pick up.
The characters are likeable, but most importantly they're plausible and not perfect. By the time I finished reading the book, I was immediately thinking of different biblical allegories that I'm sure the author was intentionally alluding to, but she didn't over do it. She used just the correct amount of subtlety without spelling out exactly what she was alluding to. Again, my comment might not make sense because I don't want to spoil the outcome other than to say it was quite interesting the Christian take Celesta was willing to bring to this genre.
If you like Zombies, and you like hopeful and optimistic stories that don't sport a pessimistic outlook, you'll enjoy this and I highly recommend it.
