Life is bad after the apocalypse…the undead just made it worse.

Jenna should be having the time of her life at college. Instead, her one 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?

My Thoughts

As an impulse read this turned out to be a good idea, enjoyed the concept of how the group made it to High Point Inn in Virginia after going through pretty much the equivalent of some of the worst experiences that would have reduced less strong individuals to a gibbering mess of humanity.

As the author clearly intended this to be a mixture of normal zombie lore with a few unique spins of her own have to say was impressed with how she pulled it off, especially when things became fairly routine near the last and then she shook up the group with a threat they never imagined.

As a few others have noted there is a dratted cliffhanger but it fires my imagination envisioning what is to come in book number 2!
