Description

After surviving a deadly plague outbreak, sixteen-year-old Savannah thought she had lived through the very worst of human history. There was no way to know that the miracle vaccine would put everyone at risk for a fate worse than un-death. Now, two very different kinds of infected walk the Earth, intent on nothing but feeding and destroying what little remains of civilization. When the inoculated are bitten, infection means watching on in silent horror as self-control disappears and the idea of feasting on loved ones becomes increasingly hard to ignore. Starving and forced to live inside of the abandoned high school, all Savannah wants is the chance to fight back. When a strange boy arrives with a plan to set everything right, she gets her chance. Meeting Cole changes everything. Mere survival will never be enough.show more

Our customer reviews

This book has far too many spelling and grammatical errors which distract the reader from the storyline. This could easily be fixed by having the story proof-read by somebody else before publishing. More annoying still were the sudden jumps in time or scene. Perhaps a blank line between the final paragraph of one scene and the first paragraph of the next would make these jumps less confusing. Having said all that, my only gripes with this book are technical. The story itself is engrossing and well-written. The characters are engaging and the situations frighteningly realistic. I found the time spent inside the mind of a living zombie particularly horrifying. It is no easy feat to create empathy for the zombies in a living reader, but the author of this book manages this so well that, when there is an altercation near the end between a living person and one of the infected, I was genuinely unsure of which character I wanted to win. Had the technical errors not been present, I would have given this book a full five out of five. As it is, I can only give it a four. Still, if this is a good representation of Sheridan's writing, I will definitely be on the lookout for more!show more
