Product Description

Product Description

A normal spring morning cascades into a nightmare world for Mera Stevens as 1.8 billion children simultaneously fall ill and then vanish from the face of the earth. Her son, Jeremy, is one of them.

Increased natural disasters, onslaught of disease and other phenomena throws the world into chaos as it balances on the brink of extinction.

With communications down, Mera gathers the courage and strength she needs to trek across a dying country in search of a daughter she desperately hopes is still alive.

While en route to Seattle, Mera is joined by others on a similar mission. Their travels are not easy. Not only do they have to face nature’s roadblocks, they must combat the infected who have become their most deadly obstacle. More than just facing the physical and emotional challenges that test their survival, the group faces a journey that will take them much further than just a search for loved ones in a desolate world.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a (proof) read 30 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As far as zombie(ish) post-apocalyptic fiction goes this is pretty standard fare, but with a few tweaks that make it that bit more interesting. The action is structured in the usual way: Set the scene, 'Event' happens, brief emotional interlude, action, lull, action, lull, emotional guff, action...and so on. So far, so predictable - but there is a slight twist: whether by accident or by design the lead character is *enormously* frustrating. Emotionally volatile, unpredictable, downright pig headed, shrill and jaw-droppingly self centred at times she is possibly the single most annoying heroine ever written - but for all of that at least she's different: she's not the type of ex-military survivalist nutjob / alpha male / loser-come-good the genre is littered with, which is to be commended.

What's not to be commended is the occasionally appalling standard of spelling in the book. I know that for some people this seems an undue and unfair criticism but if you're writing a book, especially an e-book, there is absolutely no excuse for not spell checking and getting someone (almost anyone older than 7 years old who has some level of literacy)to have a quick look over it. If I see the word 'lose' (as in "Put this in your pocket so you don't lose it") spelt l-o-o-s-e again I'm going to hunt the author down and force feed them every page the letter L has to offer in the biggest dictionary I can find.

The action moves along at a fair clip and will keep you interested up until the slightly unorthodox ending. Without giving too much away it is a very different, if slightly absurd, ending that again provides something of a change. It could have been done a bit better I felt (but then I've never written more than a review, so who am I to criticise?

3.0 out of 5 stars Freaking time travel man! 17 April 2014
By Angel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Why the hell would you throw time travel into a post appocolyptic zombie novel? And why the hell would you throw it in as an aside? Ruined the whole book and irritated the hell out of me. Time travel is powerful if you use it well, throwing it in the fluff your page count is idiotic and infuriating. Ruined the whole story, which was a damn good story, all because she wanted to...what?...What the hell was the point of it. Didn't add anything at all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept me Guessing 4 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good book, I read this quickly because I really wanted to find out what was coming next,I like these sort of books, although I'm not a massive fan of zombies, but the zombies or sleepers in this book were threatening and nasty but not much in the front of the story for me it was a good balance.I didn't guess the end though, that was a suprise, def didn't see that coming.I would like to read some more books by this author now, I think shes pretty good.
