Format: Paperback

This book is not for everyone. If typos and errors drive you crazy, this book will make you moreso. If you prefer to read books that don't use harsh language or go into detail to describe sexual assaults, this is not for you. That being said, the author has made a very interesting story of some very unlikely heroes. While the story focuses on a teen girl named Kayla and a seasoned cop named Alex, they are just two parts of a group of people who have discovered they may be the last survivors of a very Twillight Zone styled apocalypse that puts them into a new world with different rules. The creatures are fantastical, the danger is ever present. But beyond that, the story is about brutal survival using a group that has had to do some brutal things to themselves to do all they can to survive the disease of cancer. Through this setup we see how people must be wiling to ask for and accept help from each other. People must be encouragers and not exclude the weak for convenience or expediency- everyone has gifts to contribute. Ultimately, the book asks, "What are you willing to believe, what do you put your faith in when answers aren't thee and nothing makes sense anymore?" The book is 400+ pages, yet I managed to consume it in just three evenings. I enjoyed the journey these characters were on and the ways they changed as the story moved along. The author needs a copy editor, but he can craft an engrossing story that is very enjoyable!
