“A dynamic, multi-faceted story of teenage love and gut-wrenching loss in a dystopian world. It’s a perfect YA sci-fi novel that will hook teens onto the genre”. – Books Monthly
“I couldn’t put it down! The story of Alyx and Tommy is so gripping that from the moment I picked up the book, I was hooked! 1 day later, when I turned the final page, it was like I’d just woken up from an awesome/terrifying zombie dream (or nightmare, whichever way you see it). I can’t wait for the next instalment of the story, and would love to see this made into a film. It felt very much like The Hunger Games with a zombie twist – and I loved The Hunger Games!” – Amazon review
“This is a brilliant, pacy, gripping read with engaging characters and I can’t wait to read the next book. It’s emotive and intense and the characters stay with you. I love a story that you still think about long after you’ve read it and I’m so glad I got to read this. I often drift in and out of some stories, but this kept me locked in. An excellent story, written with flair and executed with inspiring imagination.” – Amazon review
