My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book starts off with fast paced action that is non-stop throughout the novel. Nick is an easily enjoyable and seemingly level-headed character, while his buddy Marcus is quite the opposite. From the beginning I knew Marcus was trouble and despised his character.
The author does a great job of depicting characters and a merciless society as it most likely would be in the face of the apocalypse. We watch as the characters have to make difficult decisions that mean life or death for others. It is not any easy decision for some and too easy for others.
Once the group has to flee, Nick and Becky are alone and one thing leads to another. Now that they are together, it causes a jealous rift between Marcus and Nick when they catch back up with the group. And Marcus is not someone whose bad side you want to be on.
The town that they end up seeking refuge is strange, but again this portrays a reality of what the end of the world does to people and society.
Nick ends up being betrayed by Marcus, left for dead and his woman kidnapped.
As I said, fast paced action that doesn’t stop. The characters are all unique and believable. The story was well written and the ending is quite interesting.
