Being thirteen has pitfalls of its own, but growing up has never been this hard.

Jenna had promised her mother that if the worst happened during her dad's weekend, they would meet at Red Hill Ranch. When she finds seven words spray-painted on her dad's wall the morning after a deadly outbreak, she makes a promise to herself: to get to the ranch with her seven-year-old sister, Halle, and to get them both there alive.

Among Monsters is the companion novella to Red Hill, both exploring from different perspectives what many broken families experience every other weekend: What if your children aren't with you when the world ends? What would you do to get to them? What would they go through to get to you?

For Jenna, seeing her mother again is worth everything. Determined to keep her promise, she is faced with experiences and decisions that force her to leave her childhood behind.

Among Monsters was fabulous!!!! I absolutely loved Red Hill so I was excited when I heard this novella was coming out and we would get to read Jenna and Halle's story. Their journey to the Red Hill Ranch was was enjoyable and thrilling. I loved how Jamie made connections with the characters between the two stories. To know that Scarlet and the girls journey where somewhat intertwined and the characters they met and experiences they had along the way were connected in some ways was awesome. It really felt like even during the zombie apocalypse the world was still small. It was an amazing story filled with action, love, family, strength, growing up and survival. I loved it!!!

***AMONG MONSTERS was my most anticipated read of 2014. I was antsy for it the very moment Jamie announced that she would be writing the novella. I wasn't sure what to expect, I just knew that Jamie would have me sitting on the edge of seat, anxious to see what would unfold on Halle and Jenna's journey to Red Hill. To say she accomplished that, would be a complete understatement. Be prepared to have your adrenaline pumping, your heart strings pulled on and have the complete inability to put your Kindle down because you are going to "need" to know what happens next. If you loved Red Hill, like I do (and it's no secret just how much I do), you will absolutely love Among Monsters.***
