What I Thought:
Awesome Read! I think the author totally rocked out the zombie angle in this one!
The story we follow is interesting because the main character, Temple, remembers nothing of life before the "zombies." She was a small child in an orphanage when the mess hit so it was a twist to follow a character surviving as she always has.
I have to say that I was really impressed with the overall storyline. I read this one in a day because I just could NOT put it down.
I'll point out that the ending did make me mad. I was expecting something to happen that didn't. That's probably what will make this one memorable for me for a long time.
About The Book:
Zombies have infested a fallen America. A young girl named Temple is on the run. Haunted by her past and pursued by a killer, Temple is surrounded by death and danger, hoping to be set free.
For twenty-five years, civilization has survived in meager enclaves, guarded against a plague of the dead. Temple wanders this blighted landscape, keeping to herself and keeping her demons inside her heart. She can't remember a time before the zombies, but she does remember an old man who took her in and the younger brother she cared for until the tragedy that set her on a personal journey toward redemption. Moving back and forth between the insulated remnants of society and the brutal frontier beyond, Temple must decide where ultimately to make a home and find the salvation she seeks.
