#PaperbackFriday In the After by Demitria Lunetta
This weekend's read is In the After by Demitria Lunetta. The title and the synopsis really interested me into seeing what this book is about. Now here is the synopsis and tell me what YOU think the book is going to be about. Because when I read it I was thinking something totally different than what it is about.
They hear the most silent of footsteps.
They are faster than anything you've ever seen.
And They won't stop chasing you...until you are dead.
Amy is watching TV when it happens, when the world is attacked by Them. These vile creatures are rapidly devouring mankind. Most of the population is overtaken, but Amy manages to escape—and even rescue “Baby,” a toddler left behind in the chaos. Marooned in Amy’s house, the girls do everything they can to survive—and avoid Them at all costs.
After years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope, a colony of survivors living in a former government research compound. While at first the colony seems like a dream with plenty of food, safety, and shelter, New Hope slowly reveals that it is far from ideal. And Amy soon realizes that unless things change, she’ll lose Baby—and much more.
Rebellious, courageous, and tender, this unforgettable duo will have you on the edge of your seat as you tear through the pulse-pounding narrow escapes and horrifying twists of fate in this thrilling debut from author Demitria Lunetta.
Here is an excerpt from the book:
I only go out at night.
I walk along the empty street and pause, my muscles tense and ready. The breeze rustles the overgrown grass and I title my head slightly. I'm listening for Them.
All the warnings I remember from horror movies are wrong. Monster do not rule the night, waiting patiently to spring from the shadows. They hunt during the day, when the light is good and their vision is at its best. At night, if you don't make a noise, they can shuffle past you within an inch of your nose and never know you are there.
Sounds like it may be something good to dive into, it seems to be book one so I am going to check my library out for book two even if I don't enjoy this book I do like to finish a series no matter what. I know kind of weird because what if you don't like book one how can you like book two? Well for me if I don't like one book I may like the second or the fourth I don't have to like each book but who knows.
