Product description

About the Author

Eli Constant is a genre-jumping detail junkie, obsessed with the nature of humanity. She believes that there's beauty at the core of most everything, but that truly unredeemable characters create the best stories. Eli is the author of "Dead Trees," "Mastic," "DRAG.N" and is a contributor to the charity anthology "Let's Scare Cancer to Death," benefitting the V Foundation. *** Eli lives in Virginia with her husband and two daughters. She is surrounded by battlefield country, farmland and lakes. Currently, she spends her days being a devoted mother and, of course, writing. Eli feels fortunate that her marriage is one of real love and she thinks her children are the coolest people in the world. She also feels so lucky to have an extended family that is ever present with encouragement and kind words. Eli completed coursework at USC-L, Columbia College, TAMU-CC, and George Mason University. She enjoyed a varied course load, but finally settled on Biology and focused on a career in lab research. She spent time in Texas volunteering at Flour Bluff Shrimp Mariculture Lab [and being paid in Pink Hawaiian Shrimp- which was, in a word, delicious.] and also spent time at NIH participating in an Animal Research Program in the Infectious Disease Dept. It took two years working in Histology/Pathology in Sterling, VA for Eli to realize she wanted to be a writer. She is still very interested in the sciences and hopes to use her background knowledge effectively within her writing. When it comes to her writing, Eli has one ultimate goal: to become better with each word written. She is obsessed with the nature of humanity- the innocent, the corrupted and the confused. She's always been a great lover of Science Fiction, but has also grown to truly appreciate other genres, especially Horror and Fantasy. Her other interests include art with a focus on charcoal medium, walking her American Foxhound Dottie, eating egg-drop, wonton soup from the local delivery place and watching low-budget Sci-Fi movies with her awesome family. www.eliconstant.com | Twitter @Author_EliC Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/authorEliConstant Books on Amazon: http://amzn.to/1leEDEo Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/6901568.Eli_Constant Wordpress: http://authoreliconstant.wordpress.com/

This book was really well written - I couldn't put it down! I don't like zombie stuff but really enjoyed this book. The descriptions of the beasties was so vivid - it made of really easy to visualise them - scary! In short - read it!!!! :)

Great dystopian book with a nice new edge to it-- The Beasties! That sounds lame, but they are so far from it.
The best thing about this is that you can tell that the writer has put a lot of thouhgt into everything in the story and hasn't tried to just rehash an old plot.
I can't wait to read the sequel, and see what's going to happen with the Beasties, theyre too bad-ass to all just die!

Elise is on the run with her young daughters, trying to survive the invasion of the planet by underground humanoid cannibals who are adapting to life above ground and killing everyone they can. She is following broadcasts of safe havens where survivors gather and there is safety in numbers, as she heads north towards Canada, and hopefully safety.

I really loved this book. It was great to have a different kind of monster instead of the traditional zombie, though this story has everything good that you'd expect to find in a zombie tale. Every time Elise stops for gas, medicine, food, change of car, or sleep, she risks being attacked by the beasties. She also has to look after the needs of two very young girls which adds a different element to the story. We see Elise as a fighter when she is attacked, and a mother trying to look after her girls in a world gone mad. I mean, what other book do you have a woman trying to drive as much as she can in daylight with one daughter not toilet trained and the other with the weakest bladder in America? I loved touches like that!

The beasties are brilliant and scary. They might not infect you like zombies but their claws and teeth will rip you to pieces. The beastie attacks really are tension filled as you hope that everyone will survive, and for the first half of the book the beastie attacks come thick and fast. Hotels, gas stations and shopping malls with dark corners all become danger zones even in the relative safety of daylight so every time they stop the car, I was on edge wondering what was going to happen. But I also liked the fact that the beasties begin to adapt to sunlight, grow smarter and start operating in groups.

I wasn't sure of this book to start off with, as recently I've read a number of books in which the world has gone belly up and people are fighting to survive. Some of these book have been really good and some run of the mill average. Dead Trees is up there with the best. It build on a world of horrific and unruly beasties running a mock on a forever changed world. The main Character Elise is a strong, intelligent and a fighter and you will her on to keep her children safe throughout the story. The underlying love story plays out well and add a different dynamic as the story progresses. The other character all fit in well to this world that's overtaken by beasties. One of the things that stood out the most about this book from others I've read in this genre was it wasn't just about survival but also trying to find a cure/solution to the problem. The science/genetics involved was fascinating (sometimes confusing, as I'm no scientist) but broken down very well. I think Eli has done a brilliant job with this book and I look forward to seeing what happens with Elise and her family in Dead Trees 2 which I've heard is coming out in May 2014

This is brilliant! One of the best dystopian books i've read in a really long time.
Well written, creepy, horrifying & quite honestly gut-wrenching at times.
You wont be able to put this down.
