What is it about? (Blurb from GoodReads)

“Now that I survived the initial storm, I find myself back where I once was: under the control of my dickish parents (if dickish even is a word).

Day by day, the world gets worse. Storms brew on the east coast, volcanos erupt on the west, and zombie-like creatures continue to attack the cities. Where does that leave me? Hopefully not dead…at least, not yet.

Circumstance finds me in route to Atlanta, one of the cities that has fallen, accompanied by seven guys that I swear are as insane as I am. Together, we will face the monsters that plague our country.

But monsters can take any form. We will come to realize that even the most beautiful of people can end up being the most deadliest of creatures. Are we capable of surviving the apocalypse or will we succumb to the darkness around us?

This is a reverse harem series, meaning that the main character won’t have to choose between her love interests!”

Warning: This book deals with sensitive issues such as abuse, rape, and suicide that some readers may find triggering. Reader discretion is advised. 

Thoughts

There are times in your life when you need to read a bit of darkness, but a dark tinged with both humor and light. This book fits that bill, and then some. It’s sweet in a way that proclaims innocence, yet harsh in reality’s honesty. I enjoyed it, and enjoyed all the characters.

Like the first book in this series, The Darkness We Crave, there are plenty of confusing moments – but the picture is slowly starting to become clearer. Very slowly. The gang is out of the resort and on the road, heading on a rescue mission to find Addie’s little brother, who happens to be autistic. What we don’t know is the purpose of the team, where they come from or why. We also don’t know what is really up with Addie’s parents, what the virus is, if those are Zombies, why Addie was abused, details on the ex…. the list goes on! We know some things, but at this point, Book 3 is almost required to be explosive with revelations. Or not… with Katie May, you never know, LOL!!

Perspective:

First Person, Multiple POV

Ending Type

Cliffhanger

Pros:

  • Some scenes are flat out funny.
  • Right shade of dark.
  • Addie is growing.
  • Cliffhanger, but a stately satisfying ending.

 

Cons:

  • Still unclear what’s really going on.
  • Zombies? Are they zombies?
  • Almost every one is bloody nuts…. but it’s funny.
  • Just because a guy likes you doesn’t mean you HAVE to like them back…. sheesh.

Verdict

4.5 out of 5 Stars

This is an intriguing series that is evolving into a complex story that seems determined to wrap around genres. Highly recommend.
