Summary: “Seventeen-year-old Krista must quickly figure out how she’s going to survive in the zombie-destroyed world. The one advantage humans have is that the zombies hate humid environments, so they’re migrating west to escape its deteriorating effects. The survivors plan to construct a wall at North Platte to keep the undead out, and Krista has come to Nebraska to start a new life.
Zombies aren’t the only creatures she has to be cautious of—the other survivors have a dark side. Krista must fight not only to live but also to defend everything she holds dear—her country, her freedom, and ultimately, those she loves.
Join Krista in her quest to survive in this thrilling apocalyptic novel by Pembroke Sinclair.”
Cover Review: This cover is a significant improvement on the one I first got from Pembroke, but it’s still not my favorite thing ever. It’s trying to hard to be mainstream, with it’s simplistic cover with random clipart as the focal point. BUT, I’d pick it up. It looks clean, professional, and intriguing.
Why I put it on my TBR list: I’m a huge fan of the author, and so when she offered to send me some of her YA novels, I happily accepted her offer. Unfortunately, I just wasn’t able to get to them before I left on my mission, so this spotlight post will have to suffice for the time being, and to serve as a reminder that I need to read them as soon as I get back.
TBH, I’ve never actually read a zombie book before. But this one doesn’t seem to cliche, and I know that the author writes well, so I’m going to give it a try. There’s a first time for everything, right? I really like the premise of rebuilding a community after a tragedy, because personally, that’s one of my favorite book tropes and I love to read it. So I’m super excited for that!
