Title: The Last Orphans (The Last Orphans #1)
Author: N.W. Harris
Published Date: Expected – October 17th 2014
In a span of mere hours, the entire adult population is decimated, leaving their children behind to fend for themselves and deal with the horrific aftermath of the freak occurrence. As one of the newly made elders in his small town, Shane finds himself taking on the role of caretaker for a large group of juvenile survivors. One who just happens to be Kelly Douglas—an out-of-his-league classmate—who, on any other day, would have never given Shane a second glance.
Together, they begin their quest to find out why all of the adults were slaughtered. What they find is even more horrifying than anything they could have expected—the annihilation of the adults was only the beginning. Shane and his friends are not the unlucky survivors left to inherit this new, messed-up planet. No, they are its next victims. There is an unknown power out there, and it won’t stop until every person in the world is dead.
A spine-tingling adventure that will have you gasping for breath all the way until the last page, The Last Orphans is the first book in an all-new apocalyptic series.
I was lucky enough to get to read an arc of this book and I loved it! This for me was very reminiscent of writings by the awesome Stephen King and I suggest any fans of his grab a copy as soon as it is available. Although this is technically a YA read because of the age of the characters involved this is NOT what I would consider typical of the genre and for that reason alone it piqued my interest.
The characters are vivid (as are the situations they have to deal with) and this author certainly doesn’t pull any punches. Be warned though, as with MANY Clean Teen Publishing books it leaves you desperate for book 2. I got to the end and things were just starting to click in to place for me and THAT WAS IT! Grrrrrrrrr.
