Ok cannot give this book more than 3 stars because everyone acts like teenagers instead of adults approaching thirty and in some cases they are in their thirty's! How old is the author? 16? Grown adults don't act this way! The storyline is good kudos to the author's vivid imagination but as a fifty four year old woman these people really need to grow up!

Ok the story itself is alright. I like the paranormal aspect, but these main characters, UGH. Definitely feels like an average YA novel. The girls cry way too much and the "men" are so gruff and not very likeable. Everyone is like 25+ yet exhibit behaviors of the average high schooler. Really pulled me out of the story. I skimmed over several parts and didn't miss a thing. I doubt I will bother with the rest of the series. Too adolescent.

This book is a mess. The plot is disjointed and ridiculous. The characters are so silly and stupid it almost makes me angry. It is the end of the world and all the two main characters do for 400 pages is text back and forth about boy friend issues. Does this makes sense to anyone? The people giving good reviews were either paid or are related to the writer. I haven't been this (negatively) worked up about a book for years. Don't read...just delete. Jp

I honestly tried to finish this book and I made it more than halfway through, but I just couldn't read anymore. The description this novel sounded very interesting and I'm a huge fan of dystopian/post-apocalyptic novels. I suspect there may even be a good story in this book somewhere, but I just couldn't get past the immaturity of the characters. Until I read their ages, I honestly thought they were teenagers due to their thoughts and actions. The females in this story couldn't walk into a room without thinking about who they just slept with, who they wanted to sleep with next, and who in that room wanted to sleep with them. They also apparently needed to be rescued by some guy every 10 pages or so and I just grew tired of reading about it. If everyone I cared about was dead or I was unsure of their safety and I was in these characters' situation, my sex life wouldn't be at the top of my list of priorities. Very shallow, immature, and unbelievable characters. The description of this novel is very misleading.  I received a digital version of this book from NetGalley.

I'm always up for a dystopian novel...and this was a good book...just not very plausible in some instances.  "What would you do if what you thought was the flu, killed 90% of the population. What would you do if you got sick but didn't die, and ended up with new ability. What would you do, to get to you love ones? save your loved ones? Well Dani and Zoe are about to find out." I actually really enjoyed this book, most of the time. The two main characters were fun to read, and really came into their own as the book progresses. The book was well written, just not always well thought out. When I was reading the emails sent back in fourth between the two friends (the internet is up? What the Hell?) I felt they were more young college students (18/19) Not 26 year old women. Some of the emails seemed very teenagerish or even childish...Not what you would expect from women their age. Now let's gets back to the internet... Why aren't they suspicious about that... I mean hardly any gas, low food supplies...shoddy electricity...and the internet is on? Come On!!! Now onto the good stuff... I loved reading about the relationships in this book, even before they got steamy. These girls really fought to stay alive, but at the same time found something they weren't really looking for. The thing about the world ending is that while it brings out the good in some people...it brings out the worst in most. I thought the villains in this story were brilliantly written. Each horrible person they came upon worst than the last. I am a big fan of the walking dead and revolution and I think to write a really good guy...you have to write the bad guy better. So this book gets 4 stars because it was just that Good, but I'm hoping the next in the series explains why is the internet on...and I don't like endings that leave me hanging...unless I can read the other book right then;)

Around page 256 the previous +60 pages loop around and start over again, right in the middle of the story! Lousy editing job, or perhaps they just want the page count to appear higher than it actually is...

Felt YA instead of NA, but you know what? I STILL loved it. The cliffhanger alone made it worth it. You never know what can happen.

it starts very slow, but it picks up and the story does get much better.

Wow. Was this book ever hard to finish. It started out great. Tore thru the first third of the book in no time. Then it was like dragging my feet thru mud. Too romantic and not enough action. Got bored with all the emails from the girls. Just seemed kind of pointless. Overall, just kind of fell flat.

There are just too many irregularities.......Internet works even though there is no phone service; Fort Bragg is in NC not the Pacific Northwest. The characters do seem more late teen than 25-30.

The premise of the story is good.  If I was a horney teenager or a lover of Harlequin books I would give it a 5.  I like Apocalypse books but this one is maybe 25% apocalypse and 75% musings of two, what appear to be, horney teenagers.  All the sex and thoughts of sex detract from the book.  I found it hard to follow the book.  The character development is shallow.  The way things jump around, including e-mail when there shouldn't be internet in the places they are in, it seems like the writer has a bad case of ADHD.  I am going to be stupid and get the second book in the hopes the writing gets better.  If not, I will skip through the book looking for survival situations.  Like many movies, the sex detracts from the story and is not really necessary, except to make the book thicker.

A flu virus is wiping out the world and the survivors are looking for others to work with. Zoe and Dani are best friends who are trying to get to each other. With the help of Zoe's brother Dani begins the journey She has always had a crush on him and has to face the fact he may not be for her. Zoe is haunted by the past and feels guilty at times. They both have a hard journey ahead and that is just the beginning. It seems the virus left people with strange powers. Ok I love these type of stories and I did enjoy this one somewhat. It at times was hard to get into I will say. I put it down several times as I would get bored with it. The plot has a great appeal to it and from the blurb you expect so much. However I have to say I would have loved it if they had killed Dani. Sorry anyone who gets over her boyfriend and doesn't seem to care should be killed off. I love the paranormal twist in giving the people different powers. it adds a good twist to the book. I believe without it it would have been a flop all together. There is plenty of action as hey lets face it people have died off and you are going to have some bad seeds left. I will read the next one as I want to see how their powers develop more.

I rarely read reviews before I read a book for myself, and this book is the very reason why. A few negative reviews caught my eye just before I started reading, and I almost passed this book by because of it. Luckily, I decided to go with my gut and read it anyway. I'm so glad I did! I found it to be very entertaining, and it added a little something different to most post apocalyptic books out there.
