In a world where a virus has spread turning most of the population into flesh eating monsters, there are two friends partying it up in New Orleans when the infection hits. Far away from home, they are trapped and trying to make sense of all that has happened with the help of new friends and enemies along the way. Zombies aren't the only thing to fear... Four Boundless Stars
I think this is one of the better zombie/dystopian books I've read. Starting off it was exciting and really the excitement didn't end. It was full of horror, the gory detail felt real. In a situation such as this, it's always a question of whose more dangerous. The infected or the un-infected?
Bailey wakes up in her hotel room, having no idea of the horrors waiting for her outside. After a run in with one of the infected. She meets up with her bff Zoe. The two take to the streets to get some aid. But like you would think, going to the hospital at a time such as this one. Not a very good idea.
Through out the casts of characters come into play. You grow close to them as Bailey has and there's always that thought in the back of your head, whose really going to make it?
I can't imagine having to go through such a Thing and being so far away from home. I mean you really have nothing. You don't know how your family is. Your old life just doesn't exists.
I really enjoyed this story and it will be interesting to see what happens with Bailey and the rest of the group. The writing was well done, so at no time was I bored with it. And hey if you've been following my reviews, you know I love me some Zombies.
