She has been hiding out for four years in solitude. It’s the only way to survive. The only way not to draw the living dead. Helping a small group of people, she learns the new world might not be what she assumes. Venturing out of her refuge and comfort zone, she meets Rudy, who helps her find a greater purpose. She realises that the world has moved on without her. Only it’s not what she expects. Her knowledge of the living dead grows and only makes her more curious as humanity continues to hang on by a thread. While on her search for answers she finds comfort in new friendships and love, but her past seems as if it will haunt her forever.
Kansas takes it upon herself to help other survivors, which would be easy if the famished were the only obstacles.
In a trilogy plot thick with twists and turns, this adult dark fantasy is emotional as much as it is horrifyingly gripping.
Zombies are not the only thing she faces along the way. At times its so dark your not sure if there is a way out but then she meets Rudy. I’m not going to give much away but he helps her get back on her feet. At times I though Rudy and Kan would form a romantic tie or maybe that’s what I hoped but alas she falls into someone Else’s arms and this didn’t sit well with me.
Although by the end things had changed and there was some strange paths taken.0046707
And things that I thought where, Where not.
I love that Annie has created a world of zombies that are not quite the same as everything else out there. The famished are fast, the putrids are slow. The Humans Can be just as deadly as any zombies out there. How can she keep an eye on them all to survive!
I loved this Book so much and cannot wait for the second in the series which should be out by the end of the month. But while your waiting for the second instalment don’t forget to check out Rudy’s Story on Annie’s Website.
