Publisher's summary

Leisel and Evelyn lost everything. Husbands. Families. Friends. Lives that made sense. All they had left was each other and a friendship that could withstand anything...even an apocalypse. Until one fateful night when the marginal safety they'd come to rely on comes to a vicious and brutal end, and they find themselves face to face with a much altered, much crueler life.

Traveling across a broken and infection-ridden country, they find everything comes at a price - especially safety, the cost of which could very well strip them of the one thing they've tried so hard to cling to: their humanity. Yet along with all the trials they're forced to endure, there's also hope in the form of love. But in such a savage world, is there room for love? In a place of nightmares made reality, where the living should be feared far more than the dead, an unbreakable friendship and a love among all odds can mean the difference between life and death.

Intense and heartbreaking

Claire C. Riley and Madeline Sheehan will rip out your heart, drop it on the floor, stomp on it a bit - then pick it up, dust it off and hand it back to you.

The character development in this book is amazing. They make mistakes and bad decisions at times, but to me that makes them more human. You are drawn in to this world, you fall in love with the good guys and you really, really hate the bad guys. You are kept on the edge of your seat all through the book as they try to find somewhere safe.

Evelyn is the ballsy, take charge, speaks what is on her mind half of the duo that will sacrifice anything to keep Leisel safe. Leisel is the timid mouse that has been broken over and over again, but she is much stronger than even she knows. Polar opposites, they are best friends that keep each other going during the zombie apocalypse.

It is very dark at times, but that makes it realistic. All this and you still get zombies!

CJ Bloom did a wonderful job with the narration. She has a pleasant voice, good pace, you can easily distinguish the characters and she put so much emotion into the parts that called for it.
