Imagine finding your first love, only to be ripped apart by the apocalypse. Peyton Anderson will never forget the day she was forced to make a choice–between her family–and Chris Parker, the boy she’d given her heart. Now, four years later, as she steps from the fallout shelter and into a dead and broken world, he’s the only thing on her mind.
All Chris “Chase” Parker wanted was to take Peyton away and keep her safe from harm. But he waited for hours in the rain on judgment day and she never showed–breaking his heart without ever telling him why.
Now the two of them have been thrown together once again, reluctant chaperones to a group of orphan children in a post-apocalyptic world where the dead still walk…and feed. As they begin their pilgramage to the last human outpost on Earth, can they find a way to let go of old hurts and find the love they lost–all while attempting to save what’s left of the human race?
Lori’s Review: 4 Stars
I loved this book. It was a very different take on the Z-Poc. The zombies were fresh and not the standard zom. Which can be a good thing or a bad thing. Peyton is more badass than a lot of heroines out there in book land. She is unrealistically badass. Her dad was a scientist and gave her an upgrade to make her the perfect weapon for fighting the zombies. Peyton and Chirs (Chase) have wonderful chemistry. Unlike other books in this genre they are slow to trust each other and fall in love…even though they were in love before the zpoc.
This book doesn’t have enough action for my tastes but It might be just right for someone getting into the Zombie genre.
It’s well written and engaging and definately worth your money! The ending was very unexpected which is a good thing for me. I am not surprised by books often.
Kami’s Review: 4 Stars
I was a bit leary going into this book. The description kinda screamed angsty teenage love story, something I really dont have patience for.
However I was pleasantly surprised!
This was a great read, I really loved the story, and the characters. In my opinion it was a different twist on zombies, at least of the zombie books I have read.
At first the back and forth through time put me off, but since it wasnt several different people, it was easy to follow, and I am glad now that we got more of a backstory rather than jumping right into the end of the world shit with no idea how it really came about.
The twist at the end was good. I have no idea why I didnt see that one coming, but I didnt, so it was a nice surprise to not actually guess the ending, LOL.
Overall a good zombie book for all you zombie lovers out there. Thanks Lori for recommending this book!
