Overview

Zombies- as if that wasn’t enough to ruin any girl’s dream of a happily ever after.

Reagan’s worst nightmare has come true and it doesn’t involve Feeders or Zombies of any kind. Kane Allen has managed to kidnap her and Page.

Trapped in a remote cabin, nowhere near the Colony or the compound, Reagan is forced to live out a truly horrific hostage situation. Kane is determined to get Reagan to acknowledge him and that she might have feelings for him. But Reagan is only determined to get away.

Kane truly has them trapped however, and when Reagan is faced with the harsh reality that there is no getaway car, no weapons for her to protect Page with and that she has no idea where they are, she is left with nothing but hopelessness and despair.

When Kane’s humanity starts to shine through, Reagan realizes she’s in more danger than ever. But she’s determined to hold on until Hendrix can find her.

That is… if Hendrix can find her.

Meet the Author

I was born and raised in Nebraska, but spent my college years traveling the world. I fell in love with Eastern Europe, Paris, Indian Food and the beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka. But I came back home to marry my high school sweetheart and now I spend my days raising our growing family. In those few spare moments I have, I am either reading or writing Young Adult Fiction, because I am obsessed with it.

Five other things I'm obsessed with right now:
1. My Kuerig Coffee Machine. Genius.
2. 90's music. Oh man, the 90's speak right to my soul.
3. Chocolate smelling body wash. Who doesn't want to walk around smelling like a bakery?
4. Colored Chapstick. And if it's Dr. Pepper Flavored, that's kind of my nirvana.
And.
5. Spotify. It's like the mixed-tape of this generation and I have probably three hundred hours of music on there. Can't get enough.

    More Kane please

    Kind of over Hendrix, so glad we finally got an episode with more Kane in it. Love his character and the chemistry he has with Reagan.

    Wow!! That's all I have to say about this episode! How does Rachel Higginson make me love Hendrix and Kane for Reagan? I can't help myself! I am completely hooked and I can be swayed either way!

    This episode takes place after Reagan was kidnapped. And darn it Rachel, you made me root for Kane! This was a wonderful and touching episode. She made me see the wonderful side of the bad guy!

    The kidnapping of Reagan and Page in the last episode had me bot

    The kidnapping of Reagan and Page in the last episode had me both thrilled and panicked. I was excited for the prospect of Kane and Reagan having more time together, but it irked me, no, shredded me that sweet, innocent Page was also taken. Taken away from her brothers. Away from her family. Away from her safety.

    But I've been saying this for ages now. Kane is not a bad guy. He's misunderstood. Those of you who think otherwise can go right ahead and keeping thinking of Kane as the bad guy, but I know the truth.

    :)

    And Kane in this episode just proved what I already knew. Sure, he took Page away (an idiotic and dangerous idea, I admit), but he knew it would keep Reagan from running away from him right away; after all, she can't willy nilly run away from him in the dark of night when she has the safety of a little girl to think about. She has to act smarter than she has in the past because it's not just her own life in the balance.

    But we all know Reagan. She likes her freedom. She doesn't like to be told what to do, and she certainly does not like Kane's constant attempts to make her his. But no matter how much Reagan demands for Kane to leave her be, she has these feelings for him that she tries to deny. He has this likeability that she termed wonderfully in this episode as "poor-me-I'm-so-misunderstood vulnerability".

    I loved how Reagan's thoughts were constantly warring with one another. Reagan can fool herself all she wants, but she can't convince me that she actually believes all those horrible things about Kane that she tries to tell herself are 100% true.

    One of these days I hope she realizes that maybe she's a little crazy and that maybe Kane is actually a great guy. Hehe. I can only wish for it, right?

    Anyway, I swear, every episode I think is the "best one" and then the next episode comes and it's somehow better than the last. This episode was no exception. I loved Kane more than ever, and Page and Reagan became more dear to me too. Kane's confessions to Reagan were not only touching, they were utterly endearing.

    Ok so not really sure how I felt about this episode. That being

    Ok so not really sure how I felt about this episode. That being said, don't get me wrong another fantastic episode by Rachel to this very imaginative zombie world. But WOW!!!! Now that Kane has Reagan and Page secreted away-( ok kidnapped) in a secret family hunting lodge, he has a plan.This is his version of dating and getting to know one another in this unfair world of apocolyptic, zombie infested unfairness that the dating world now is. His game plan to keep Reagan secluded enough to play on the weakness she has for his vulnerability, and his charming side. Good plan on his side, all though his mother is residing with them , "Chaperone", who makes her immediate dislike for Reagan known once again. This girl is no where near good enough for her son. Reagan can't help the pull she has towards Kane, and Page is there to witness Reagans mental breakdown, and her behavior. Page has told Reagan she knows Kane wants to keep Reagan for himself, It's the look he has in his eyes. Reagan's heart belongs to Hendrix, this beautiful little girl , she would do anything for, and the whole Parker clan. She wil not give up trying to find away out of this situation and getting Page back to her brothers. Cannot wait to see what is in store for Season 6!

    Love Regan HATE that she is stuck with a manipulative ass. Poor

    Love Regan HATE that she is stuck with a manipulative ass. Poor Page is also stuck in a situation where she is watching Regan break down and is helpless to do anything. Kane is determined to make Regan his one way or another and all Regan and Page can do is wait for Hendrix and his brothers and hope Kane doesn't dig his claws in any further before they get there! Especially as they are hidden in the woods full of feeders where only 2 others even know where they are. No means to escape and Regan was passed out on the way there so even if she managed to escape the house, Kane, his mother, the zombies, she has no car and no idea where she is and she has to keep Page safe!

    more from this reviewer

    Oh Kane...

    “My son deserves someone so much better than you,” she hissed at me in a slow southern accent that reminded me of debutante balls and charity committees.
    I couldn’t help but crack a smile. “Honestly? I couldn’t agree with you more.”
    That did not gain me any points with the Lady Allen. Obviously, we weren’t going to be hostage situation-BFFs anytime soon.
    **

    This episode was pretty lax compared to some of the others. But it was definitely intense for the first half. THe type of intense that has tingles running up your spine. And goose bumps on your arms. You are not sure if Kane is going to crack, if his mother is going to crack or even Reagan might. Especially when Reagan realizes that they are, in fact, stuck there. At least for the time being. We can't give out hope that the Parker's are on the way to save them as we speak.

    The one thing that kept nudging me from the back on mind while reading this one is...how awesome would it be to feel what Hendrix is feeling when he realizes they have been taken. You know he has flipped his lid trying to find Reagan and his little sister. He has to be completely torn right now. Not knowing who he wants to save more: his sister or the love of his life. Ugh, the agony.

    A little break down of Epi 5...

    Romance: 2 out of 10. I am the last person who wants to admit this, but yeah, there is some there. Whether Reagan wants to acknowledge this or not. From the beginning there has always been something there, between the two.

    Zombies: 0. Well, besides the mention of some lumbering around the woods, there is none to speak of. And that is kind of a bummer. But I have complete faith that we haven't seen the last of them.

    Parker Brothers 0. There is the mention of them, and the mere mention is a heartbreaking one. My heart is hurting for everyone involved. '

    Most definitely a must read, even if it is not as actioned-packed as the ones before. And even though the future seems bleak, I am absolutely loving where Higginson is shifting the story to.
