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.Read more ›
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!
One night Elise is attacked in her own home. She manages to kill the monster but later, when when her husband fails to return home, she loads up the car with supplies, the kids and makes a run for it. So many people are now gone that she is able to survive by looting food and fuel and keep travelling, keeping the car radio on. She keeps hearing a broadcast of a set of numbers and realizes it is a map reference to a safe area. After staying with several groups over time, she picks up a man, Jason who has lost his son, and they head off together.They manage to reach and are taken into, the underground secure facility NORAD where the army has a laboratory with some captive Undergrounders. Some scientists there want to try and breed out the violent characteristics of the enemy whilst others want to eliminate them totally. Elise becomes involved in the experiments and can eventually see advantages of both sides.Read more ›
