The beginning of the end. The Apocalypse.
A nuclear fallout wiped out every living thing on the planet, except for a few thousand of us who took shelter in underground bunkers across the globe. Now, after thirteen long years, we were finally able to return to the topside to begin to rebuild.
We thought we were alone. We were never more wrong.
Before the fallout, scientists had worked on creating an anti-radiation vaccine (ARV). The first two attempts failed, but despite the incomplete tests and results, the government approved and distributed the third serum to the masses in an effort to aid those who had no shelter.
It worked, keeping those who remained on the topside alive, but it also altered and mutated them. This new and infectious threat had completely outnumbered us. Now, we not only had to rebuild our planet. We would have to fight for it.
My name is Abigail Park. I’m seventeen, and this is my story.
This book has been on my reading list for a while and I just haven't had a chance to read it. So when another friend recommended this book as a book to "expand your horizons" I knew I had to start reading it. I was so glad I did but disappointed in myself for waiting so darn long. This book was great. So we are introduced to Abigail who has lived in a bunker since she was four years old. The world as she knew it seventeen years ago is not the same, yet she has been prepared for living on the topside along with those that have also been living in the bunker with her.
When the time comes and they get ready to leave they will see and hear the unthinkable around them. I really enjoy Abigail as a character and how even though she was great at target shooting she still felt nervous when she had to actually shoot at a person. You can tell she knew that there was a difference between a moving target and a paper target. The relationship between Finn and Abigail you know has to be young love and I was glad Abigail was trying hard not to fall in love with Finn even though we all know it was going to have to happen. I mean you are in a bunker with the same person for years you know there has to be some feelings.
The zombies in this story are not your normal zombies they are faster, smarter and so much more. The author did a great job with the character developments, the way they handle situations, to how these characters were able to survive. I really liked the idea on how the people/zombies who were able to survive on the surface became the way they were. Great imagination. I do believe this series will be on my top 10 for best zombie books.
