After a long day of prepping a house for painting, all Gus Berry wanted was the night off to spend some time with his girlfriend and relax before having to return to work the next morning. But that isn’t going to happen. Because Gus’s co-worker Benny has found a one-night job at the local Mollymart East, a job that has to be done by morning. If Gus and his paint crew can complete the work by then, it could mean huge business with a respected, established grocery store chain.

This book grabs you from the beginning and doesn’t stop plowing forward!! It calls much needed attention to the terrors of human trafficking, child trafficking to be exact. The details, experiences, absolute insanity Of this sick dark world that no one wants to talk about. IT IS an epidemic far more terrifying than anything else going on in the world. I live in TN, and this state is rapidly gaining as one of the top human trafficking area of the country. What was once “Mayberry,” is now filled with soulless monsters. My daughter was being cased in a grocery store. I was right beside her. She’s 6, her brother was 8, and this monster was following us. He had a buddy outside waiting. Be alert, be aware, be ABSOLUTELY SUSPECT OF EVERYONE! It’s happening everywhere! I will absolutely proceed to purchase book # 2. I’m blown away!

I’ve been loving the series but I got annoyed at the epilogues in the last 2 books. Part of this one is exact, WORD FOR WORD, of Mike meeting Eliza in the field from book one. Why? I also really just can deal with “me, me, me crap.” Mike, get a hold on it! I found myself rolling my eyes!! More than once. Also, the Talbot-isms in previous book were cute, but cap those things to 3...why were 6 necessary??? I sort of feel like this was really drug out to meet the correct amount of words/chapters. I’ll buy the next book, too, but I sure hope Mike is a little less self-obsessed.

Months into the apocalypse, the zombies show no signs of dying, but it's clear everyone in Sunset Park will die without enough food to outlast the undead. Add in the less-than-sociable new neighbors only blocks away, and the hunt for sustenance has come to feel more like a race than a ramble. Sylvie is happy in her new home with the people who've become like family, though she's still working out how to let them into her heart. Eric wants in, and he wants to find his sister, but he can't do both at the same time.

Cassie Forrest isn't surprised to learn that the day she’s decided to get her life together is also the day the world ends. After all, she’s been on a self-imposed losing streak since her survivalist parents died: she’s stopped painting, broken off her engagement to Adrian and dated a real jerk. Rectifying her mistakes has to wait, however, because Cassie and her friends have just enough time to escape Brooklyn for her parents’ cabin before Bornavirus LX turns them into zombies, too.

Kacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. When she moved in with her father, she stepped into a brand-new life. A life with a stepbrother, a stepmother, and, strangest of all, an adoring younger half sister. Kacey's new life is eerily charming compared with the wild highs and lows of the old one she lived with her volatile mother. And everyone is so nice in Broken Falls - she's even been welcomed into a tight new circle of friends. Bailey and Jade invite her to do everything with them.

I'm am pleasantly surprised this was so good! I finished it in like 36 hours. I really recommend it! You grow to know the characters, and think you know who is the killer but then it all goes back to square one! For such young characters, it was really entertaining to me and I don't read a lot of YA!

This book was just not the same as other Half-Moon Hollows. All of this author's stories are so fun, funny, and exciting. This wasn't bad at all, just lacking as compared to the last one I read. I'm seriously a HUGE fan, yet this one just seemed like it was too much rambling.... Still a very good book, but not what I'm used to! I love Molly Harper and will continue to buy all of her books! We're allowed to have one that isn't our fave!
