Summary from GoodReads

She was born the day the world ended…

Nurrin has lived her entire life with zombies—trapped behind walls meant to keep them safe. She’s mostly happy there. But when a zombie horde breach the walls of her Haven, she has to trust her brother, Collin, and his best friend to keep her alive.

He just wants his past to die…

Finn O’Malley has given up on voicing warnings that are ignored. No one cares that the zombies are changing. Now all that matters is keeping Collin and Nurrin safe from what’s outside the walls of a Haven. But when Nurrin’s best friend picks up a contact infection, he agrees to get the medicine needed to save his life. Forced together, relying on each other in a strange Haven, zombies aren’t the most dangerous thing they’re facing.

In their world, only one thing remains true: everything ends in blood.

 I received a copy from Inkslinger in exchange for an honest review.

I have never watched "The Walking Dead" but I was familiar with the zombie-like worlds from "Warm Bodies" movie based on the same novel by Isaac Marion.

But on Nazarea's world we get true anguish, fear, death, more undead and inner turmoil. Nurrin and her brother Collin live in one of the Havens, small pockets of safe humans among the zombie ridden US. When Finn, Collin's friend and Nurrin's nemesis realises that the Havens are going to fall, the three of them set on a jurney among the Wild Open. There they must face not only the zombies but all the hard aspects of cruelty and profit.

Although the book is relatively short, it kept me hooked until the very last page! I never understood why other readers and bloggers (yes I mean you Sarah!) liked reading these apocalyptic ones. Well I now became one of them. Only the idea that you have to live through this hell is agonizing.

And that's the reason why I liked Nurrin. She clings to hope, she is a badass and she loves her brother. On the other hand, Finn is an ass. Period. He is rude, also knows how to swing his sword and gun and his POV is secretive as hell! You need to read the rest of the books if you want to under stand what has happened to him, what shaped him like this.

Their scenes are worth all the zombie repelant since you can see that there is attraction between them. But the world is so hard and savage around them, to the point of fearing the possibility of love.

For those who like guns, zombies and some goos adventure, this book is for you. Did I also mentioned that there is a cliffhanger? Yup, there is that one too!

About the author:

Nazarea Andrews is an avid reader and tends to write the stories she wants to read. She loves chocolate and coffee almost as much as she loves books, but not quite as much as she loves her kids. She lives in south Georgia with her husband, daughters, and overgrown dog.

I add all the books I read--I'm a little obsessive. I don't, however, rate or review all of them. I love talking about books, so feel free to say hi! :)
