Apocalyptic books are by far my favorite. I have read dozens and dozens over my 70 years. This series beats any other I have ever read. When I see some of the others that are out there, such as 5th Wave, I wonder why this series isn't right up at the top of the best selling list. Must be the fact that the author can't afford the advertising because that is all that is keeping it from being on the best seller list. Loved, loved, loved the series and hated to see it come to an end.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I loved this book and couldn't wait for the next. This book is more for the older teen or young adult. I am the grandma of two a young grandma but still I loved this series. The teen girl as the heroin here was prepared by her father but only so far. She has to learn to trust herself and she does not at least not yet. And that is the question in my mind will she ever be able to trust anyone she is still asking her dad is this the right decision am I making the right choices. But, its for her to decide her dad could only take her so far. I felt so bad for her having to make adult decision at her age facing the fears of the unknown and the things she has to face that No one should face ever. I can't wait to start the next book. Thank goodness I got this series after all the books were out! This series is the best I can't stop reading I think about the characters when I'm not reading the book. I can't put it down.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Every single time that I think that Elle Casey's books just can't get any better I read another one and I'm completely blown away. I have to admit that I go into each one of Mrs. Casey's books with very high expectations based upon her previous works and she never fails to not only meet those expectations but to exceed them. And not just by a little bit either. If I could give this book 10 stars I would do it in a heart beat. Her finely written characters continue to grow and gain even more depth. The storylines take a lot of unexpected twists and turns. The humor is always top notch and the action is exactly perfect. The characters that I've grown to love in this series I now love even more.
Bryn continues to evolve and I really believe that this book is going to be a huge turning point in her life. After reading the last one I was hoping that she and her friends would just settle down and live in the Everglades but I'm just not seeing that for her anymore. She's a natural born leader that people automatically gravitate to and I think maybe she's found her calling in life whether she knows it or not. Bodo seriously amazes me. I really liked him in the first book. He's easy going, funny and goofy but has now shown he can be serious too and has a much richer personality than I had thought. I was looking forward to seeing Bodo and Peter's talents and boy was I not let down. What Bodo can do is incredible and I really enjoyed the "other love" in his life. And then there's Peter who may be weak physically but has one giant muscle of a brain. The dudes a genius and has proven his worth time and time again. I just hope he can find someone to cuddle with (other than Buster that is). Buster still rocks (those snakes don't stand a chance).
The rest of their new extended family are all pretty amazing. Winky totally kicks some major butt and I enjoyed every scene she was in. There's also a lot of new characters who's names we didn't know in the first book. Everyone in the tribe has their own talents and personalities and I can't help but feel emotionally invested in all of them. It was scary enough reading this book and having to wonder if everyone's going to be okay. I so don't want to read any of them getting hurt or killed but know it's bound to happen so I keep reading dreading and enjoying every minute of it. This was another Elle Casey book that was impossible to put down. I'm about to start the next book because I just have to know what happens to a certain character. That was an evil evil cliffhanger but I wouldn't want it any other way :) What a great book!!!

For whatever reason, I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. I'm addicted to Bodo, Peter, Buster and even Bryn although she annoys me at times with her attitude. I'm enjoying the heck out of the tribes and the antics of the guys. Throwing in a sweet adorable dog and even Nina was what really melted me all over.
Ugh, the story line of the bad guys is gruesome! And the cliffhanger!! What??! I immediately flipped over to the web so I could purchase the next book in the series! So far, this series is amazing to me!
