Highly recommended.

Z 2134 (Z 2134 Series Book 1) by Sean Platt

The "Darwin Games" is the arena in which a teenage rebel is made to compete against others for her life, and only one can survive until the end... Fortunately, a teenage boy from her city is also thrown into the area, and he pledges to defend her with his life.

Even the addition of one of the dullest cursory zombie themes I have ever had the misfortune to come across doesn't add a twist to the tale.

This book is flat and… Read more
