A legend that will change the world.

It's been 150 years since the Ahwahnee Indians lived where Yosemite National Park now stands. Their last surviving Chief appears to Elizabeth Hutchings, a twenty-year-old biology student, the very day her parents die. Within 24 hours, she too is clinging to life as his whispers echo in her thoughts. An ancient prophecy has begun. A plague rips through the world's population, taking everyone and everything she has ever cared about. As agents of a mysterious organization called Meadowlark hunt her, she must find the strength to fight the infected even as she struggles to keep herself alive. Just when she thinks she can't go on, a man from her past arrives. He holds the key to understanding the prophecy. If she can unravel its secrets, she not only may change her own fate-but the fate of the entire world.

Horrible! This book makes no sense whatsoever. If I could I'd give it no stars. A complete waste of time. Jp

I read about 50 pages, it was just too disjointed and chaotic, so i didn't finish it. It was a frustrating read, what I did get through.

This book is a confusing and disjointed mess. Way too many characters are introduced and the story jumps from one to another in first person without rhyme or reason. I VERYrarely stop reading a book but I only made it 60 pages before I had to stop. Weird zombie-native american thing with mind control government agents. Bad!

Ending sucked. There was no resolution to the story, no tying ends together...nothing.

This is an awesome fast paced zombie novel. It is definitely a page turner, with something new around every corner. Just when you think you know what is going to happen next, the book take a new turn or twist. It has a lot of good Native American stories and legends which make the plot more interesting as it is not just about blood and gore. I hope this gets turned into a movie, Cant wait for book #2.

This is the 1st time i have ever given a novel only 1 star. Well the native american legends were okay. There were too many chatacters introduced without character build up or backstories. The story jumped around all over the place and was impossible to follow. Some of the overall concepts were great like the themed campout happening at that exact time. But the book was just a mess. Like someone threw paragraphs into a blender and just poured them out onto pages. There was no resolution to any of it that i found. Just finishing this book makes it hard to even write a decent review. Those of you who called it quits early on did the right thing!

I really enjoyed the history and legend that was interspersed throughout the story. I would have liked a clearer resolution at the end of the story. I get that Elizabeth is going to keep her promise to Hazel, but it would have been nice to know if she was able to do so. Interesting, thought provoking read.
