This is book 2 in the `Wisteria' series, and picks up a couple of months after the end of book 1 - `Wisteria'.
After the events in book 1, Wisteria is now secretly dating Bach - the alien that she has bonded with, and continuing with her life on the island of Smythe.
Wisteria has new problems though; the other teens on the island have been sneaking across to the mainland to throw wild parties where they get drunk and dance. Wisteria can't believe how stupid they are being - light and noise attracts biters, and the old town where the kids are partying isn't safe.
The other kids think that Wisteria is just being a buzz kill, but when the biters actually turn up, all hell breaks loose, and unknowingly the kids have started something that will put their home and way of life at risk.
What will become of the partying teens? What is next for Wisteria and Bach and their illicit relationship? And will life on the isle of Smythe ever be the same again?
This was an interesting second instalment, but as with the first, I did get quite confused towards the end of the book.
Wisteria was exactly the same as she was in book 1, fierce and confident with a sword in her hand, and downtrodden among her peers. I liked the way that she continued to fight for what she thought was right though, and that nothing could make her abandon those that she loved.
I got a bit lost with Bach in this one, at the beginning he was obviously in love with Wisteria, and did everything that he could to keep her safe and happy, but then towards the end this seemed to change, and I couldn't quite work out which side he was one, and whether he still felt the way he had about Wisteria which was a bit annoying.
There wasn't much romance in this one, again Wisteria and Bach's relationship was more `we're bonded and that is the way it is', rather than what you would class as a normal loving relationship, although maybe that's just because he was an alien? The rest of a book was that same mix of genres though - sci-fi/fantasy/paranormal/dystopian/horror/romance.
I liked the storyline in the beginning with the kids partying, and managed to keep up with what was going on until pretty late on in the book, it was somewhere around the 70% mark that I started to lose track! The big finale to the book consisted of quite a few of the aliens and someone who had been hiding on the island in plain sight. I got very confused as to what was really happening with all that, and struggled then to get through the rest of the book.
Thankfully there was a fairly happy ending though.
Overall; okay second book, still a bit confusing though.
6.5 out of 10.

In the second installment of the Young adult series "Wisteria" the love story slash zombie apocalypse continues. We do learn more about the aliens and we also learn more about the character of wisteria, but the audience has to muddle through much of the same editing issues as in the first installment of the series.
Bach and Wisteria go through almost the normal ups and downs of common day relationships except he's a supernatural being and most of the worlds population are bloodthirsty zombies. They do both face a challenge with communicating how they truly feel for one another but that eventually gets fixed.
Mrs. Leyton (author) has an uncanny ability to keep the excitement and adventure going step-by-step and page by page not only will you want to see their relationship grow you will laugh at the mistakes they make and you will want to cry when they hurt each other. But also how she is able to keep the adventure, the excitement and the drama flowing naturally throughout the whole book will not leave you bored.
After reading the first book in the series, I hoped that Wisteria's social life would improve, but during the first few chapters I realised that it hasn't. The other kids still treat her badly and often bully her. Wisteria has had to grow up quicker than most of the kids her age and the others are still irresponsible, having parties in the danger zone where the biters can attack you...... There is no way I would go out there knowing that there is a possibility of getting infected... But these kids continue to do so and blame her every time they are caught, even though she is only looking out for her brother.
Wisteria is the same quick tempered girl that I met in book one. She is always putting her family first and covers for her brother constantly. Personally, I would've smacked my brother if he was as stupid as David, and I still don't know how she kept her temper but she did.
Bach is as confusing as ever; he is tossing back and forth whether he wants to be with Wisteria or not. There were times I thought he was sweet but other times I wanted to scream at him too. He has a lot of pressure placed on him because of his place in the family but he is doing his best to try and work it out. Even though Bach has changed his views somewhat, he only does so to keep Wisteria happy. He is spending a fair bit of time on earth now, so he is beginning to tolerate the humans for her sake.
Myopia was a highly entertaining read and I loved how well the plot flowed. There was a lot of action and some really intense moments that kept me glued to the pages. The biters (zombie's) always keep things interesting, but the cocky Familia's always take the cake. They are arrogant but they have the strength and power that goes with it.
If you love a good Zombie book, I definitely recommend this series. There have been a few more twists thrown in and the series is definitely building. Bisi has done an amazing job of building up the plots and I am keen to see what is in store for Wisteria and Bach in the third book, Aporia which is out now!!
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Now here’s my issue. I really do love this series; I think it’s unique, well written, imaginative and fast paced so I don’t get bored when I’m reading it. But I absolutely hate the way everyone in the book treats Wisteria aside from Coles and Bach. They have so much hate in them for her even after everything she’s done to keep them safe.
I understand how that much drama can make a story interesting and create layers between characters, but typically over time that kind of hatred fades. We see characters evolving as people and becoming more that hateful little turds. I haven’t seen that happen yet here. There isn’t a single thing that redeems the behavior of any of these characters and honestly I don’t know why Wisteria continues to risk her life for them.
I can’t tell you how many time I yelled at her while reading to stand up for herself and not let people walk all over her. It’s maddening, but at the same time I get that she’s the good guy and if she let them die just to get revenge or to be spiteful she would be just as bad as they are. Still I wish she wouldn’t just let people talk to her the way they do. She’s such a strong character, but I feel like she’s only strong when it comes to the people she cares about, not herself.
I am enthralled in this world though and I cannot tell you how much I hated the addition of Alba and I was so incredibly angry at Bach for being so stupid as to trust her. It takes a good writer to make me hate a character this much and Leyton did an excellent job creating a world where I care about the outcome.
I don’t want to give too much away, but we get some great hints about Wisteria’s past and who her Father is along with some really awesome surprise revelations from characters we never would have thought to imagine played a role. We also get a glimpse into Bach’s world and boy do I not like it haha!
I’m heading off to read the short story now, but I cannot wait for the third book in this series!
