STAR RATINGS GUIDE
A Fantastic Find For A Zombista
🧡 Calling all fans of zombies, the apocalypse and even - gasp - the zombie apocalypse, this is for you. It has the close-knit group and prepper origins of Sarah Lyons Fleming, but with a gloomier take. Think Gray or The Road for a sense of the tone. Ooh, or Susan Beth Pfeffer’s The Last Survivors series with its sweet melancholy.
💚 Main character, Nila Carter is a mum trying to keep her family alive. They escape to her dad’s cabin in the mountains, forming a small community. Nila is thoroughly likeable and sensible and I became thoroughly invested in her world.
💛 Mostly based in one, quite isolated location, this isn’t a Walking Dead on-the-move, action frolic, but a very real, stark view of an apocalypse scenario.
💜 One complaint: The character names were headspinners. Niles (what they call Nila) brought to mind Niles Crane of Frasier. Conversely, Cady is a man, but made me think of Mean Girls. Not a big deal, but it did jolt me every time.
Rejoice for this is free on Audible Plus and - and - author Jacqueline Druga is prolific. My TBR is reeling from all the new adds.
