This was a fast read for me.
Eve is an idiot. Why would you cross over yellow tape and go into an unmarked cave that only someone your size could fit through by yourself? Girl, you are lucky getting bit was the only thing that happened to you.
Eve, Cam and Alex are the closest friends. They were all at a dig site when Eve decided to be an idiot and try to find something so life-altering, that they would name a prize after her.
Well, she got the life altering part down. She got bit. By a zombie.
There are about a zillion types of zombie lure out there. This one reminds me a little more of iZombie. She is still kind of human and can pass for human and such, but she still needs to feed on flesh and all that disgusting stuff. You don’t get enough of this kind of paranormal, so I really loved that.
The author took a lot of liberties with her folk tale and I appreciated that. She had a fresh pair of eyes on an over-done type of story and it was refreshing.
The writing was a little out of bounds for me. It read young but felt young adult. I’m not sure why it is labeled New Adult, because there isn’t any New Adult content in it. There was some gore, as it is expected with any zombie book, but it wasn’t to the point that I was finding myself gagging from the details. There is a lot of room to grow with that. I would say that the relationships were kind of assumed, not shown, to the reader. You knew they were best friends and they talked as if they were best friends, but I didn’t feel anything below a surfaced relationship between them.
I appreciated the reach out by the author and hope she continues to learn from her work and to grow with her passion. She was a great story teller and I hope to hear more of her stories in the future.
