To live through the zombie apocalypse they have to survive each other first.
College freshman Parker Osborne is having the worst day ever. He humiliated himself trying to pick up a cute guy, he hasn’t made any friends at school, and his stupidly hot jerk of a TA gave him a crappy grade on his paper. He’s going to drop Adam Hawkins’ film class and start fresh tomorrow after he’s had a good sulk.
But Parker’s about to find out what a bad day really looks like—if he can survive the night.
A virus is unleashed, transforming infected people into zombie-like killers. After these quick and deadly creepers swarm campus, Parker only escapes thanks to Adam swooping him onto the back of his trusty motorcycle. Now they’re on the run—and stuck with each other.
When they’re not bickering, they’re fighting off the infected in a bloody battle for survival. Their only hope is to head east to Parker’s family, but orphaned Adam has a secret he’s not sure Parker will accept: he’s a werewolf. Can they trust each other enough to find some light in these dark days?
So I don’t think I’ve read a book by this author I didn’t like. And this one was no different.
Two guys thrown together, world wide crisis, and a mission to drive cross country to find the family that may or may not still be alive.
This book has everything, two guys at first not really liking each other, growing to love each other. A mission in survival, zombies and werewolves.
As we follow Adam and Parker across country, we learn more and more about them. How they grew up, what shaped them into the men they are now. We also get to follow along on how they go from TA and student to friends to lovers. And I think I like that the best. we really get the whole picture. All the while we are kept on the edge of will they get eaten by zombies? What will happen when they get to the Cape? So amazing.
We are left with a HFN and minor cliffy.
This one picks up pretty much were the last one stops.
Adam and Parker have taken a sail boat and put Mariah on it and started heading south.
As they sail south, we continue to watch the development of the relationship. The hardships they face dealing with the new life and the promise of this Island no one has heard of. Along the way we find that sailing on the open sea isn’t as safe as we would have thought. And having to duck into land for supplies has it own set of issues. Can I just add, I specifically loved the Daytona bit. W/ties to that town I had to share that scene and after a good laugh we decided it must have been during Bike week!
This whole book makes you think, could I, would I.
I just love the details we get, the perils of crossing, the Island, the risks.
Once again we are left with a HFN and cliffy.
