'I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review'
This is the first book in a spin off series from the After series.
Mackie is a junkie and works for a drug dealer. Or he did until the Solar Storm that destroyed the world. There are now three sets of people. The dead, the survivors and the Zapheads. The Zapheads are zombie like but their bites don't kill you or turn you into a Zombie, the just really hurt. Now Mackie is on his way to his old college to find his ex girlfriend Allie. He has to know that she is ok. Then he wants to find Krider. His boss, and when he finds him he intends to kill him.
When Mackie gets to the college it is to find out that Allie is a Zaphead and the girl with her had intentions to kill both him and Allie but had a change of heart. Then Krider and his goons show up wanting to take over the college and make it into a settlement with Krider as king. Krider and his minions are ruthless killers and Mackie knows that life will be hell with Krider in charge so he and some others make a plan to get rid of him. But like most things in life those plans don't go exactly as planned.
My Opinion: As with all of Scott's books I loved it. There is danger and murder and a whole bunch of craziness! It was not an easy book to put down. It may be a spin off to another series but if you haven't read the After series this one is still easy to follow along with. I can't wait to read the next book in this series! I definitely recommend reading!
