Separated from Finn, captive of the Order, Nurrin has no hope left. But she has survived twenty years of zombies--and she has the unshakable faith that Finn will find her.
But Finn is a long way away. The Order's influence runs deeper than was ever suspected, and politics are shifting--and zombies may not be the most dangerous thing she's facing.
Finn always thought the war stripped him of all he had to lose. But with Nurrin missing and doors closing in his face, he realizes there is always more for the world to take--and he will drag the remains of civilization down with him before he gives up on the only promise that matters.

So, zombies. If you hadn’t noticed, I tend to read a lot of zombie books. I’ve stumbled on a couple stinkers, but this certainly isn’t one of them! The series, as a whole, is pretty solid. It kept me up reading, late into the night, and I quickly devoured the first three books. Can’t wait for the fourth!
While each book is relatively short, and can easily be read within a day, they’re full of entertainment value! The chemistry between Nurrin and Finn is electric, and uuuuuber hot. They have this fiery love/hate non-friendship thing going on, so you’re never entirely sure which side of violence they’re going to fall on. There are a few really intriguing secondary characters, but I’m not sure that we’ll ever get their full story. A spinoff series or prequel might be nice? *hint hint* Because it’s the characters that make this series what it is! Without the witty dialogue, the personal jabs, it just wouldn’t be the same. Although, there would still be zombies! I’m still trying to get a handle on how these zombies work, because it seems like they’re changing… adapting…
This is one of the few zombie books I’ve read where it is actually explained how they came into being, and it’s semi-plausible (as plausible as you can get when you’re talking about the dead rising). It starts to make you second guess some of the leaps in medicine that we’re taking, and about how there will always be this invisible line that we should never cross. (Ominous enough for you?)
And now for the dreaded negative stuff, because every book has its low points, along with the high. Because of the short length of the books, there simply isn’t a ton of time to make huge plot leaps. Book three spent most of the time on character development (not a bad thing!) and it wasn’t until after I had finished the book that I realized not much had actually happened. I also wanted to put in a quick note: typos NEVER affect my rating of a book, but there were enough errors that I feel it deserves mentioning.
I am extremely excited for the final book! I can’t possibly fathom where the series is headed in the finale, which is really saying something. I usually have a pretty clear view of the conclusion from a mile away, but Nazarea has kept me on my toes with this series! There are so many possibilities! Will it be devastating, and everyone dies? Will it be Happily Ever After, they save the world and make beautiful babies? Or will they all become members of the undead, and spend the rest of their days hunting down the last of the human race? THE END! No matter the ending, I’m sure it’s headed somewhere EPIC!
