My review

This book is... different, but if you like drama and apocolyptic kind of books, then you'll like this. It's a twist on the classic zombie theme. It's pretty entertaining as well.

This YA apocalyptic/horror/sci-fi was definitely fast-paced and took place over less than 24 hours. Just don't get too attached to the characters. As stated above, some will live and some will die.

The setting, a secluded boarding school, was perfect for this story. Since there were more students than adults, some of the older kids were shoved into leadership roles whether they wanted them or not. With the boarding school being so secluded, the characters were mostly cut off from any help beyond their school ground walls and had to rely on each other.

Initially, I was disappointed in the stereotypical cast of teenage characters - angst-ridden guy, princess, genius nerd, bully, jealous best friend - but I have to admit, the author went a step further and let the reader see inside the character's minds to gain a better understanding of them and see how they developed by the end of the story.

The explanation for the origin of the infection seemed a little thin, but there were definitely some tense moments in the story and it held my attention. Although I'm not sure if there is a planned sequel to this novel, the ending left it wide open to continue the story.

I would recommend this quick read for people who enjoy sci-fi/apocalyptic books with more emphasis on action.

This review is based on a digital ARC from the publisher through NetGalley.

    Great

    Loved it and especially how it took place in a remote boarding school and without phone lines and being in a valley....... it was destiny page by page and the plot was detailed on the creatures and how these teens destroyed a building network.
    Do me a favor and make a silver :D

    Vey good

    The premise upon which this book is lied is amazing. The tone is surprising and the subject and emotion keeps you on your toes. Very chilling and creepy scary. In all it was insanely good. I would recommend this for ages maybe 12 or 13 to ages maybe 16 to 18 or beyond.
