Despite sweltering heat, Saturday night is in full swing at the local campus bars and cafes. Thumping techno bass competes against raucous voices and laughter until screams suddenly shatter the party atmosphere. A half-naked man charges through the crowd, savaging his peers. Zoe Clark witnesses the bloody attack and the unnatural behavior of the assailant and knows something horrible is happening in her quiet college town. Zoe opens her home and her heart to a mysterious newcomer who claims to have an explanation for the grisly attacks. Elliott Carter needs any help he can find as he struggles to discover a cure for the virus that can turn ordinary students into mindless, violent attackers. Attraction and dedication collide as the two are drawn into a high stakes race against a government gone awry and a menace invisible to the naked eye. As they fight to stop the spread of the deadly microbe, secrets and bloodshed threaten to destroy any hope they might hold for a happily ever after. When the world teeters on the brink of a deadly pandemic, how much will they sacrifice to save it?
his is my first book by author Erin McFadden and it will not be my last!! She grabs the readers attention from the very start and never lets it go! I lost a bit of sleep over this book, and by a bit I mean a lot…I couldn’t stop reading it – every time I said that I was going to stop reading I continued to tell myself one more chapter….just one more….Yep, it’s that compelling, that original, that good….
The location of the book is a typical college town, but the residents are anything but typical once the virus invades. Zach and Zoe are twins that are living in the only “zombie” proof house in the town, but they didn’t know that….they also have a bit of an immunity to the virus…but that doesn’t mean they are immune to death….
Elliott and his sister Bri are kind-of responsible for the virus and they are working to contain it….until they can’t do it alone anymore. They run into Zach and Zoe and there is some type of instant connection….can the 4 of them stop the invasion? Can they survive? This book answers a lot of the readers questions, but it also raises some as well….be prepared to have to wait for book 2 to find out the answers to everything that we have been wondering…
The plot is unique, the author’s writing style is fun, fast and very detailed. I enjoyed everything about this book, from the relationships, to the location, to the small details that the author throws in to make the reader feel like they are actually in the story with the characters. It is a fast paced, zoom through the pages read that you will instantly want to start reading again to see what you missed the first time through.
Be prepared to give up sleep, family time, and work so that you can devote your time to this book – it is that good!! Add this one and her others to your TBR list as you have just found a new favorite author! Enjoy!
