Nick and the boys return from the summer's last hunting trip to find the streets empty, the beachfront and park abandoned, and the windows of their own homes boarded shut. The hunters have become the hunted, in an apocalyptic plague that pits man against beast - very tiny beasts. And Nick is determined to keep his strength, courage and family alive during what could very well be the last winter of their lives.

it's a neat take on post apocalyptic, but not in the way we normally think. it's the antagonist to a madmax or walking dead typo of trope we usually see. it's far more personal, and much more intense.

My name is Sasha Bowman, and I am a member of the Reactance. An awakening of a dormant gene has ripped my home and community apart, giving society yet another reason to hate and even kill each other. Some people are scared of us, and for good reason. I did not ask for this gene, nor did I give anyone permission to control it, but the government has put a DiaZem in charge to do just that. This murderess, Queen DiaZem, wiped out those in the city without the gene, including my father. Now, I must fight with the Reactance to stop the DiaZem’s apparent power and ensure these genes are returned to their dormant state.

I really liked this story! the perspective of the main character gives a point of view I'm not use to, mostly as an avid horror reader. it's a different genre entirely different than what I normally read, but I thoroughly enjoyed the story!

it's basically the end of the world as we know it, only people have unlocked the power of electricity in their DNA. you end up with this hunger games type young adult story from the perspective of a teenage girl. there's a lot of things I never thought about in situations these types of stories portray. like love and relationships, and finding your place in a community after the world we know ends. overall, I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!!

In a sleepy little New England village stands a dark, weather-beaten, many-gabled house. This brooding mansion is haunted by a centuries-old curse that casts the shadow of ancestral sin upon the last four members of the distinctive Pyncheon family of Salem.

it's an American classic with a lot of old writing. but the narration really worked! his inflection and character voice's really helped keep the story flowing and helped me enjoy this story that much more.

He was born an outsider, like the rest of his family. Poor yet resilient, he lives in the shadows with his aunt Libby and uncle Darren, folk who stubbornly make their way in a society that does not understand or want them. They are mongrels, mixed blood, neither this nor that. The boy at the center of Mongrels must decide if he belongs on the road with his aunt and uncle or if he fits with the people on the other side of the tracks.

I absolutely loved this story! it brings werewolves into a new light, one more feral...more raw. Stephen hasn't reinvented the wheel, only given it something that feels almost real. It's not cliche, but isn't being ironic about it. the story just works.

I did like the narration over all. I wasn't a fan of the present tense reader, but quickly got used to him as the story went on. I liked that they had two readers, I just like one more than the other.

highly recommend this to any werewolf fan.
