Book Summary for Amazon:

 

In debut author Demitria Lunetta’s heart-pounding thriller, one girl must fight for her survival in a world overrun by violent, deadly creatures. Perfect for fans of New York Timesbestsellers like The 5th Wave and Across the Universe.

Amy Harris’s life changed forever when They took over. Her parents—vanished. The government—obsolete. Societal structure—nonexistent. No one knows where They came from, but these vicious creatures have been rapidly devouring mankind since They appeared. With fierce survivor instincts, Amy manages to stay alive—and even rescues “Baby,” a toddler who was left behind. After years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope. On the surface, it appears to be a safe haven for survivors. But there are dark and twisted secrets lurking beneath that could have Amy and Baby paying with not only their freedom . . . but also their lives.

 

My Review:

     First of all, HUGE THANKS to Demitria Lunetta for having a twitter giveaway right before the release as that’s how I won my copy.

     Anyways–I loved this book! I couldn’t put it down. In fact, I was reading it on Christmas Eve and carried it to my family Christmas because it was either that or not go. I didn’t really know much about what the book was about going into it, but I was excited because of all of the positive feedback. 

   Characters—I really liked Amy. She never gave in–even in the Ward, she tried to stand her ground and be strong. She had a good “voice” that kept the story going at a strong pace. The language she and Baby made and their relationship made for a great addition that added more emotion. However, New Hope is where the story really got going. It was interesting to see how the city worked, what was going on, and to learn what had really happened…and who had caused it to happen. 

   I loved the relationship between Amy and Rice, so I’m hoping that, somehow, that builds in book 2. In fact, there are  a lot of things that I’m hoping happen in book 2. I JUST finished the book and I’m already waiting  and counting down until the release in June. I’m just hoping that it is as exciting and creepy as this one.

5/5 Stars!
