In a heart-racing thriller described as Falling Skies meets The Walking Dead, Jennie struggles to find a safe place for what’s left of her family. But it seems as though there is no place sacred, no place secure. First the aliens attacked the sun, making it dimmer, weaker, and half what it used to be. Then they attacked the water supply, killing one-third of Earth’s population with a bitter contaminate. And when they unleash a new terror on humankind, the victims will wish for death, but will not find it…When the world shatters to pieces around her, will Jennie find the strength she needs to keep going?
I settled in to read this book, not quite knowing what to expect, I wasn’t sure even in the beginning chapter. But as soon as I hit the second chapter I am fully involved, and biting my nails. Pauline Creedon certainly put a different spin on the whole zombie thing; I quite liked it. The story takes off from there, spinning a tale of downright terror along with the idea that a church and the people therein can help make a bad situation better. Not that it fixes things, but it makes it livable, to have a place of sanctuary, where your faith can sustain you.
The only thing I even vaguely had an issue with was it ended so abruptly, although that could certainly be my take on it…anyway I want more, much more. I recommend this book highly, it’s a really well written story that has many of life’s lessons rolled into it. Kudos to Pauline Creedon for this book, it’s got a depth that is refreshing in today’s shallow more often than not society. I give this book 4 stars.
