Overview

Horizon (Aftertime Series #3) by Sophie Littlefield

Of living things there were few, but they carried on.

Cass Dollar is a survivor. She's overcome the meltdown of civilization, humans turned mindless cannibals and the many evils of man.

But from beneath the devastated California landscape emerges a tendril of hope. A mysterious traveler arrives at New Eden with knowledge of a passageway North—a final escape from the increasingly cunning Beaters. Clutching this dream, Cass and many others follow him into the unknown.

Journeying down valleys and over barren hills, Cass remains torn between two men. One—her beloved Smoke—is not so innocent as he once was. The other keeps a primal hold on her that feels like Fate itself. And beneath it all, Cass must confront the worst of what's inside her—dark memories from when she was a Beater herself. But she, and all of the other survivors, will fight to the death for the promise of a new horizon….

Have I mentioned before how good this series is? I believe I mentioned with Rebirth, but it's worth saying again. This series is MIND-BLOWING. The best part is that her characters don't pretend to be anything they're not. Not heroes, not perfect. They are flawed, which makes them very easy to relate to and understand. Cass is torn by so many things - two men, her daughter, her father, her addiction, her attack... but she knows she is conflicted by these elements, and deals with them in realistic ways. She is not alone, either. There's Dor and Smoke, who both suffer from the need to lead but who still struggle to overcome obstacles from their pasts. It is such well fleshed out characters that really give these novels (and this one in particular) the power to remain in your thoughts even after you finish the book. The scenes with Beaters (zombies) are brutal and unforgiving in their gore and tension. The world Littlefield has creaked is bleak and scary, and yet she makes sure there are tender and beautiful moments in there as well. I think I physically smiled when Cass comes upon a single California Poppy flower in the midst of her bleak travels. Horizon makes three books in this series, and I do not if there will be a forth. The ending of this installment is both satisfying and final, but there is still plenty of room to keep going with the story. Which I am totally hoping for. The Aftertime novels will always be high on my list of great zombie apocalypse stories.

I never would have thought I'd become a zombie fiction fan, but I am, and Sophia Littlefield with her Aftertime series is a large reason why. This series isn't a slashy, guts and gore horror tale. Well, yes, it's got that in it, there's lots of zombies slaying and slaying zombies with various parts flying around. But there's more depth to it. The underlying theme is how humans react when everything is taken away from them. There are no modern conveniences, friends and family are turning into horrible cannibalistic monsters, every day is a fight for survival. Through Cass Dollar's eyes, we see a myriad of human reactions; cults are formed, killer gangs roam, families hide, and groups gather to form new inter-dependent societies. It's a scary, harsh world that Sophia Littlefield has created. She doesn't shy away from the ugliness that reality can bring. Even her heroes have some darkness inside them, which shades their actions. This only makes the reading more exciting, as anything can happen. Horizon is the third and seemingly last book of the series, unfortunately. I highly recommend the books if you're a post-apocalyptic zombie fan. Read them if you dare! *I was allowed to read this book by its publishers and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

Best series I've read in a long time. I stayed up all night reading this until it was done. The story is gripping--a fantastic job by the author. I highly recommend it.

She padded up to the High Branch, looking at the tree for a moment before she sat, curling her fluffy tail neatly over her paws. "Greetings. My name is WinterMist, and I hope to become Deputy. Some qualities about me that would benifit HorizonClan are that I am unflinchingly loyal, very active, compassionate, and certainly a quick-thinker. If I am chosen to help govern this clan, I will help make it grow and thrive to be one of them mose large and healthy clan in the RP world. I have good grammar, I am intelligent, and very brave. When RazorStar departs for StarClan, I will make sure HorizonClan will never fall under inactivity or neglect. If I was Deputy, I would use my position to help other and never abuse it. Please consider me as one of your Deputy choices. Even if you choose another, I will continue to be a loyal Warrior of yours. Thank you." She dipped her head and slipped back to the clearing. <br> &rsaquo;~WinterMist~&lsaquo;

I preordered this book because I was so into the first two. I was really disappointed. Too much of it is from Sammi's point of view (Dor's daughter) and she's nothing but an angry teen for the first 100 pages. It picked up a bit when they left their location, but overall there just seemed to be no continuance from the second book, especially with Cass's addiction. It just didn't fit and ruined my admiration for the character. If there's a 4th book I'll probably read it, but just wanted to give a head's up to the fans of this series without giving spoilers...
