ARC Review: "Juniper Unraveling" by Keri Lake


Juniper Unraveling by Keri Lake
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

"This is what would happen if you took Resident Evil, added a dash of Walking Dead, and then mixed it all up with an incredible romance." 

Papa says everyone has a story that deserves to be told. 

Most begin years ago, after the second bomb hit, unearthing a deadly contagion that divided the population into the pure, the infected, and the Ragers. 

Many recount the moment we rose up from the ashes and started anew. 

Others tell of the day we built a wall to keep them out. 

For some, they’re nothing more than the vestiges left behind—a simple name carved into the knotty bark of a Juniper tree. 

My story begins with a boy. A mute, from the other side of the wall, known only as Six, who touched my heart in ways that words never could, and gave me the courage to face my darkest truth. 

Juniper Unraveling is a full-length standalone dystopian romance.

REVIEW

I received an e-ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

This was a very, very nice surprise. Not to mention that this book is underrated and it should be known more. This read was one of the cases where I found a nice cover on Netgalley, got hooked up with the cover and read it.

The zombie theme is a touch or leave for me. I've read some zombie related books which were pretty good and others that left me in the 'meh' case. But Juniper Unraveling was a pleasant surprise.

The book is told from a double POV and later only through one. There is quite a mystery concerning the POVs which I won't spoil for you! There is brutality, a world which has already ended and on the horizon a faint hope of rebuilding. I did enjoy the romance very much. It was sweet and heart-breaking and it progressed into something more intense as the plot unravelled and the characters changed.

There is action, torture and there also should be trigger warning because some themes are not for younger readers.
But in the end was book was well developed with realistic characters and a really good ending!
