Set ten years after a plague has picked off most of the population and turned the unlucky ones in to flesh eating zombies, Joss lives by herself. Her parents killed at the start of the outbreak, she trusts no one and lives very carefully.
But one day her "peaceful" life of hiding from the undead and keeping herself alive is disturbed by the arrival of Ryan, a young gang member who she saves from death. Taking him to her home to help him recover from his injuries she gets to know him better but she does not let her guard down, as soon as he is better he has to be gone.
Of course the path of teenage post-apoc survival is never easy, Ryan does indeed leave but he is not gone for good, he and Joss have a spark of a connection and they look out for one another by leaving messages on a wall.
This arrangement proves to work well with some good banter between the two of them and as their relationship progresses, friendship turns to a hint of romance but before you scream "oh no its a stereotypical dystopian romance" its not like that. It is just an occasional kiss not a can't live without you I'm a tortured soul, you know the usual you get in books of this genre.
Anyway, as well as zombies and roaming packs of wolves another problem in their world is the Colony, a group of fellow survivors who live securely with power and running water in their own little havens, they are recruiting and that means taking people from the street. People like Joss.
Taken against her will she ends up in one of the colonies but all is not happy in paradise, she discovers others there against their wills and some of the colonists have agendas.
Joss needs to get out, will she be able to?
This was an enjoyable read which I read happily over an evening, the first book in the Survival series shows promise for the books to come. Joss takes no s***, having been by herself for so long she can certainly look after herself and you know what, I hate reading about pampered princesses who can suddenly take on zombies, Joss is certainly not like that, she is a character you can get behind.
In a market where they are literally thousands of post-apoc zombie books out there, they do have to stand out for me to take notice these days, Writing on the Wall certainly got my attention.
This was a really enjoyable read. A page turner. The romance is subtle and drives the story somewhat, the zombies aren't front and centre but create the world for people to be the subject (much like Walking Dead does on the TV show).
Noticed some typos (sorry :) but aside from those really enjoyed it and will try the next ones, so congrats on a book well done.
There were some spelling mistakes, and a few grammatical errors, but i couldn't mark it down because of these, it was simply too great a story.
the biggest problem for me was the end...
how can i wait till 2014 to find out what happens!!!
