She is determined to lead her friends to safety only to discover that she’s led them into even greater danger. Determined to save her friends, she fights the living and the undead in her quest to survive.
JI really enjoyed this book! It’s not your typical zompoc novel. The first part was my favorite; so much character building going on that helps you understand Casey’s actions later in the novel. Because of this, the first section goes at a slower pace, but then the action revs up. Here is where you really get to see Casey in action. She’s a strong female who messes up, gets things right, and sometimes, just plain lucks out. Again, the first part did an amazing job of setting the reader up for knowing why Casey is doing/saying things. Can’t wait to read the next one!!
