Overview

Life is bad after the apocalypse...the undead just made it worse.

Jenna should be having the time of her life at college. Instead, her one desire is survival. She lives in a world gone insane after a virus kills most of the population. Being alive after the apocalypse is bad, but when the undead return, hungry for humans, times turn darker. For Jenna and a small group of survivors, the goal is to reach the High Point Inn. At the inn, Jenna develops feelings for Caleb, who, while exotic and intoxicating, is not quite human. Will this new utopia last?

My Thoughts As an impulse read this turned out to be a good idea, enjoyed the concept of how the group made it to High Point Inn in Virginia after going through pretty much the equivalent of some of the worst experiences that would have reduced less strong individuals to a gibbering mess of humanity. As the author clearly intended this to be a mixture of normal zombie lore with a few unique spins of her own have to say was impressed with how she pulled it off, especially when things became fairly routine near the last and then she shook up the group with a threat they never imagined. As a few others have noted there is a dratted cliffhanger but it fires my imagination envisioning what is to come in book number 2! [Kindle version borrowed from Public Library]

Lisa Acerbo combines the two most infamous undead creatures! I admit, I was waiting for someone to tackle it for a few years now. That being said, I think the opportunity to create a heck of a new apocalypse wasn't fully realized. There was the standard undead that we all know from the media along with standard characters, most of which can be described in one word: one's motherly, another fatherly, one's angry etc. and they don't really progress beyond these characteristics. The plot, unfortunately, was vague until about 75% (I have an e-reader, so it's all in percentages), when new characters were introduced and a new twist developed beyond running and fighting. Also around here, the story went from gory and gritty survialism to jarringly lovey-dovey. It took me some time to adjust to the new angle.  I will hand it to the author though, every zombie is described to the most minuet detail. That imagination must have been sweating! The writing was very smooth and easy to read and I think future works by Lisa Acerbo will be fantastic considering this is her start. The excerpt in this post is actually one of my favorite “quiet” moments and is an excellent example of Acerbo's skill.  I am a huge fan of horror, don't get me wrong, but I don't think that this book was for me. Others who like really high energy romance and gore will fall head over heels for this one, I know it.

Jenna is one of the human survivors after a virus changed the world. Now stalkers roam the world looking for humans to eat and some humans have become something else. Something other. As Jenna travels with other survivors and others to High Point Inn they suffer loss and bond together as a group. At the Inn Jenna finds she has feelings for Caleb even if he is an other and not quite human. She has a hard time letting go of the past and not everyone who survived is good. Her feelings have her confused and the stalkers aren't the only danger around. Yes another book with undead which I love however this one has a new twist to it. If you don't like books with zombies you may still like this one. They aren't the real main focus of the book. There is something else called others and they are kind of like vampires but they aren't the usual type. Jenna is a tough character who somehow always finds herself right in the middle of trouble. She doesn't trust easy and with her past I can see why but she is a pretty good judge of character. It's getting everyone to listen to her that is the problem. She likes Caleb but is torn and mostly just wants things to go back to the way it was before the virus. She has to learn that won't happen and that she has a great guy right in front of her. Caleb is so awesome. He is always protecting Jenna and always there for her. This book has plenty of action and keeps you guessing what will happen next. As it seems some have different ideas on how the survivors should act. This leads to Jenna being right in danger again but she never seems to give up. I have to say I have to know what happens next and can't wait for the next book. The author has done an amazing job with this book.
