Today on my blog I have the Apocalipstick tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, guest post, and giveaway.
Jenna should be having the time of her life at college. Instead, her only desire is survival. She lives in a world gone insane after a virus kills most of the population. Being alive after the apocalypse is bad, but when the undead return, hungry for humans, times turn darker. For Jenna and a small group of survivors, the goal is to reach the High Point Inn. At the inn, Jenna develops feelings for Caleb, who, while exotic and intoxicating, is not quite human. Will this new utopia last?
I loved this book! I’m not into apocalypse books but the title grabbed my attention but the story line sucked me in. I literally could not put this book down until the very last page.
This is not your typical zombie apocalypse book. While there is the flesh eating zombies the virus that killed most of the population also mutated and caused “Others” to evolve along side the remaining humans. But the “Others” are stronger, faster, light sensitive, and have rapid healing. But they all have one common goal to stay away from the zombies and get to High Point Inn where there is less of a chance to be food for the zombies.
I really liked Jenna she is so much stronger than she even realizes. Having lost her family to the virus and trying to stay alive from the zombies a group of survivors find her and take her in. But struggles of this new world are getting to Jenna but there is a bright spot in her life and that is Caleb on of the “Others” in their group. But can the relationship work in this new world or will the zombies get them? To find out you will have to read this book which I highly recommend you do.
I loved this book from page one and I can not wait until the next one as the cliff hanger is driving me crazy! 5/5 Bloody Fangs
Letter from Jenna about her first time seeing Caleb
Since we’re apart for a short time and zombies are likely to attack when least expected, I thought I’d try to put my feelings on paper. Not one of my strong points, but here goes. I remember the first time I saw you. Do you remember? I was in the graveyard after spending hours huddled in a cold tomb, waiting to be devoured by stalkers. I finally gathered enough courage to venture out into the night alone. So scared. Overwhelmed and terrified can’t even come close to describing the emotions coursing through me. I look around and there you were.
I can imagine what you thought when you saw me. I was in survival mode. It had been weeks since I had showered or even cared about finding a new set of clothes. I don’t know the last time I had eaten anything substantial. All I had was a ratty backpack, the handle of a shovel to use as a weapon, and my camouflage jacket. It is still huge on me today, but when you first saw me, the jacket must have looked as if it was hanging on a skeleton. I know what you are thinking right now. I should get rid of that stupid tattered jacket. True, it’s old and worn out, but some things are worth keeping around.
You stared at me, but it felt like you were looking into my soul. You saw the real me inside the scared girl. My feet were stuck in place when you waved to me to come over. I know that you were not alone, but I couldn’t focus on anyone else in the group, and I didn’t know if I should run in fear or climb into your arms and stay there. You’re not like anyone I have ever known. So intense and confusing at times, but every moment with you makes each stalker-filled day worth living. That first glimpse of you has turned into the best and worst moment of my life. You have taught me how to care about someone again, but in our deadly world, that is not always such a good thing.
