This story is the first post-apocalyptic book that I have read that has such a creative story! Add to that Kate's talent for writing realistic characters and I am hooked. I'm crossing my fingers she will write more stories in this world like she has with the Broken World series!
The moment I began reading this story, I was hooked. Mary has a talent for writing and keeping her readers entertained from the very first page. When We Were Human is a fantastic story of survival and the importance of remaining hopeful and not giving up on love. Kate L. Mary introduces her heroine in a vulnerable way and shows her readers that even the strong fall down and need to be picked back up. As the story progresses, we get to watch our heroine grow and learn to trust again. The world created in When We Were Human is everything a fan of dystopian and science fiction genres looks for when trying to find that novel.
This is a great read for Young Adults and is the go to book when trying to get your friend into science fiction. It is a well written and fast read that is perfect for a rainy day. My only regret is that I did not read this novel sooner! Watch out for Kate L. Mary, she has a bright future ahead of her!
Which leads into my biggest disappointment… this is a Novel & not the beginning of a trilogy (at least). Innumerable questions to be asked/answered, possble twists and turns that could be taken. I did feel that the little bit of romance, was of the insta-love variety and logically didn't make sense to me. There were way too many trust issues to overcome. It would have made sense for the book to conclude with the romance being more of the cliffhanger question/possibility type. Plus, dude, how fast can a person reasonably walk, hunt, build relationships, scavenge & survive in such perilous times as this seems to read… ie, 2-3 weeks versus 2-3 months?!? 😮
I did enjoy the ending to the extent that… I WANT MORE! This phrase actually isn't the ending but is one of my favorites…
"This is a moment I thought I’d never have again. Happiness and hope and love, and a future that doesn’t look like I’m facing hell."
My star ratings include these 5 elements:

This book has a nice mix of emotions, drama, violence, romance and hope that you would expect from a post apocalyptic story and doesn’t linger on anything for too long. It moves at a great pace and keeps you on your toes.
Our main character Eva, she’s tough, strong and even though she has her mental scars, she knows how to fight for survival in this new world since the invasion. Of course she has her flaws but who wouldn’t when they though all was lost. The revenge that she feels she needs to invoke on any invader that comes her way was a little gory but I think most people would feel the need for some type of revenge in this situation. This made me love this character as she felt very real to me and as the story progressed you could see her develop into a better person for the journey she takes and the people she meets.
The secondary characters in Walker, Tara and Lilly are fabulous as well and they help to keep Eva on her toes and remind her that she’s not alone in this world even though that’s all she’s known for a year now. There is a level of maturity and mix of personalities in this group that there will be someone there that you would be able to relate to in some way.
I was captivated by this story from the word go, and I had trouble putting this book down to sleep. If you enjoy post apocalyptic stories they I think you would love this.
