Personal Apocalypse by Nazarea Andrews
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Summary from GoodReads
Josiah grew up in a dying world. The Holdout survived, but when you are the son of Sylvia Cragen, you give up delusions early. He knew that they would die bloody--it wasn't a matter of if. Only when.
Parker shouldn't be alive. He should have died long before scouts from the Last Holdout rescued him. And he knows better than to believe that sailing away from the safety of the Holdout is a good idea.
Now, without the Holdout to protect them, all of his nightmares are coming true. Josiah is just crazy enough to believe that a fresh start is a good thing. But Parker has lived as prey, hunted by zombies and survivors before--and he knows that no one really survives. In the wild, zombie claimed world outside the walls of safety, there is only the dead walking.
The first in a new series set in the zombie world of The World Without End.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Nazarea Andrews has so far left me shocked on how far she will go with her characters' creation. As a spin off from the series "The World without an End" another zombie themed series, "Personal Apocalypse" comes more like a sequel rather than a spin off, at least to my opinion.
So it would be better to read her first series.
The world ended years ago as the zombie virus destroyed America as we knew it and the human race became a dying species. Joshiah, Parker, Finn and Nurrin, protagonists of the previous series now travel to Africa in order to escape from their pasts and maybe find a safe haven.
What they do find though in Africa is far more worse than anyone expected. The people there adapted differently to the zombies and the way they do act is far more scarier than the cults, the walled cities and the zombies back in America.
Told by the dual POV of Joshiah and Parker, moving between part and present this is a story about humanity and survival. There is not much plot development, more like a neeed from the author to built the psychology og her heroes.
If you like a good zombie novel then Nazarea Andrews will not leave you unsatisfied! ;)
