What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
My name is Inez Garner, and my story has sort of been told… But not. I’m turning twenty-three and find out I’m not human; I’m apparently a vampire. Sure, who hasn’t read that story? Oh, but I’m a princess. And there’s a zombie apocalypse—although I’m debating where the line is of apocalypse vs. post-apocalypse. There’s also a quest that I’m compelled to be on, and it might all be coming from the Goddess.
Awesome. It seems She has big plans for me. And I have to deal with ghosts. When I kill corrupted—the nice PC name people call zombies, as it’s not their fault they eat people—I then have to deal with their ghosts. Which is super when being hunted for years by some guys I don’t want to know better.
Add to everything, I have to apologize to heroines for judging them when they fall in bed with the hot guy and buy the story he gives. I get it now. Sex is splendid. I’m not one to believe a con, but he’s got answers I need, like why I have no memories before I was eighteen.
Plus, the fangs sort of sold it for me. I hope he forgives me for shooting him.
House of Garner is an apocalyptic hot burning WhyChoose romance with darker elements, strong language, violence, and a heroine who doesn’t let anyone get in her way.
My Thoughts on No Longer Alone
Dystopian Fast Burn PNR Reverse Harem, to be continued ending. Character age range: 24+
A Lot happens in this book, I mean, a LOT! They quite literally span the eastern side of the US (even hitting outside Fort Knox) – but it still has a slow feel, if that makes sense.
Since this is a Flynn novel, you can expect the heroine to be bad@ss, and she surely is, though not quite as in your face snarky as some of the characters that have graced Flynn novels. Instead, there is an almost innocence to her – even as she is facing a world of unknown.
Things are confusing, and this narrative does little to clear it up. Emotions feel too fast and the collection too quick, but it’s still an interesting tale and well worth reading.

My Final Verdict on No Longer Alone
While I liked this novel, it didn’t quite capture me to the depths other Erin R. Flynn novels have – but considering it is a series, the next few books might change my mind. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
