What happens when humanity’s hope rests on the shoulders of a teenager?
Caleb didn’t come out of the zombie uprising unscathed. He’s been scarred—both mentally and physically. The rest of humanity is trying to rebuild, to make the world normal again. Caleb is trying to return to a normal life also, but after all he’s seen, after the loss of his family and friends, the transition is difficult. The darkness that led him down a path of self-doubt and self-harm has never left his mind.
Things only become worse when he discovers he’s immune to whatever makes a zombie a zombie. Fighting zombies was predictable. He knew what to expect. Fighting humans is volatile. They are malicious and treacherous. They won’t stop to get what they want, and Caleb has to figure out exactly what that is.
What says I
I loved the main character when the author introduced him. He’s a young man, in his teens that were handed way more than he can handle. From a YA perspective, my expectations for this young character was huge. With the story set in a post-zombie apocalyptic environment, it should have sped up from the get-go. But, this is not your traditional YA zombie book. This is more of a character study. The book is slow and the author focused on the character’s inner toil; his emotional struggle and guilt. The story did speed up close to the end. And it sped up significantly with loads of intrigue and puzzle, and also a fair bit of action and suspense. Then there is also the huge… wait I can’t tell you that. That would spoil it for you.
