Summary: “Seventeen-year-old Krista has already proven she can survive the zombie hordes.
After moving to North Platte with her distant cousin General Liet to help build a wall that will keep the zombies in the West, it becomes apparent that the zombies aren’t the biggest threat—some survivors are far more dangerous than Krista had ever imagined.
With the help of Quinn, a survivor and fighter from the zombie-infested wildlands of the West, they free the garrison at North Platte from the power-hungry Liet. But there is a bigger battle to fight.
The Families who rule Florida and use intimidation and the threat of the zombie horde to coerce their territory want Krista and Quinn captured, the zombies want to devour them, and other survivors want them dead. Caught between powerful forces, will they survive long enough to devise a new plan and put it into action? Or will they self-destruct?
Find out in book two of this thrilling apocalyptic series by author Pembroke Sinclair.”
Cover Review: I like this cover a little more than I do the first one. I know it’s going for the post-apocalyptic feel, but, tbh, I’m getting more of the Old West vibe from it. Which is weird, I know, because there is a modern fence, but whatever. I like the cover, overall!
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.
Okay, so what I like the best about this story, from what I can tell, is that the entire premise is not just escaping zombies. It’s about rebuilding a destroyed society, and the politics and danger involved in that endeavor, and that sounds like an epic book to read! I can’t wait to give it a try!
