This was a very interesting and entertaining post apocalyptic story. I was immediately drawn into Jenna’s story and had a very hard time putting this book down. Jenna is a human survivor who is found by a group of survivors looking for a safe place to live. Some of the survivors in this group are not fully human anymore, they are called “other” due to being altered by the virus. I really enjoyed this take on what a virus outbreak could do to the world. Jenna is such a strong young woman but she doesn’t see herself that way. She has feelings for Caleb, who is “other”, and she doesn’t know how to handle it. Caleb is a mystery but he does show that he cares a lot for Jenna and everyone but her sees that. Even with the world destroyed, there is still prejudice against anyone who is different. I found myself engrossed in the survival of this strange group and was very disappointed when the book ended.
This book has zombies, suspense and romance…everything I love in a post apocalyptic tale. I felt it was very well written and I really hope another book is in the making.
