This book reminded me a bit of Stephen King's The Stand. A virus is released that wipes out the majority of civilization. For those lucky enough to survive, they have to worry about others who have the survival instinct kick in and will do anything to gain power and security at the cost of anyone else. The fact that the story is focused around teenagers makes it that much more intriguing and frustrating. I wanted to lead these kids to safety, tell them what to do, how to stay alive. Not that I would know, but they were kids and not quite grasping the severity of what life would be like.
This book was well written and moved very quickly. Well done Shelbi! I look forward to book 2!
Her best friend Salem, she is a dreamer. Her parents die in the initial infection and now Lucy is her only "family". They are the best of friends. Where Lucy is more reserved Salem is outgoing and flirty. She loves gossip and being in the middle of things, which Lucy lives thru vicariously.
Grant Trotter is a quiet pole-vaulter that get stuck with the girls. He tries to protect them and refuses to leave without them. He is obsessed with zombies in an endearing, dorky, way.
The three get trapped in their school during the outbreak. Their Principle, Spencer, sees the value in the schools supplies and goes on a rampage to keep it to himself.
Meanwhile Ethan has gone to the airport to try to locate the rest of their family. While there he is hit by a car from someone suffering the effects of the virus. He is saved my Darla along with her 5 year old son Teddy.
When Ethan and Darla finally get to his house Ethan realizes that his father may have had a hand in the infection.
I really enjoyed the book. The characters felt real. They each had flaws and different ways to deal with what was going on. It was not cliché with typical moments where you know exactly what will happen.
About 80% into the book I realized the series was going to be one long journey, not three distinct ones. Also, there was a prolonged period of "wait, I'll tell you later. Now is not the time" for no good reason. It dragged on forever and as soon as you were let in and what was going on, they would do it again, and again. It got kind of frustrating.
But all in all I loved the characters involved. The world building was fantastic. I originally gave this 4 stars but after reading the second one upped it a star. I understood the pacing better and everything flowed. I am currently on the third and can't get enough. Excellent series! Highly recommend.
I could not put this book down. I stayed up far too late reading and then lay awake worrying about global pandemics. The mark of a truly good book is a book that stays with you even after you put it down. This is one of those books. I recommend it for anyone that likes a action and suspense. Such a good book!
Now, I just hope she writes book two quickly!
