Riots have broken out across the Americas, Europe, Asia and Africa. Disturbing news footage floods the cable news channels. People are running scared, terrified. Frightened.
Dana is oblivious. She’s in her final meeting with Miss Jenkins, her caseworker. Dana’s juvie record is an inch thick, a catalogue of misdemeanors. She’s destined to spend her life behind bars.
Stressed out and looking for some much-needed distraction, Max turns up at her boyfriend’s apartment. But something is wrong.
Darren is not alone.
He’s in bed with another girl. Eating her, and not in a good way. He attacks Dana with savage violence. She puts him down, but not before his blood-stained teeth tear into her arm.
The world is falling apart. Fearing the worst, Dana rushes to the only person who’s ever mattered to her, her younger sister Max. Dana promises she will protect her forever, keep her safe. No matter what.
Betrayed by those meant to protect her, Max is taken.
Can she find her sister before she turns into the very monster she wishes to protect her from? Or will she be too late?
This is the first tome in a brand-new groundbreaking series, a tour-de-force in thrills and excitement.
I received an ARC to give an honest review.
I have sat here and tried to write this review without giving anything way only to delete and rewrite multiple times.
We are introduced to Dana who is troubled teen. When she finds herself in the middle of an apocalypse she will stop at nothing to save her sister Max.
She ends up befriending a boy named Hugo, she doesn't believe he will be able to survive because of his weight and his loudness but it seems he may surprise her.
Hugo decides that he is going to hang with Dana and survive with her and help her find her sister which in this new world it seems a majority of people will only be looking out for themselves.
I will say this. There was one scene where I sat there with my mouth opened going oh wow the author went there with that one part. I kind of giggled a bit I will be truthful.
