Absolutely loved this book series! Sep 17, karen marked it as to-read. At first, it’s fucking terrifying. They scare the living hell can I say hell? I think the main problem was the time. I feel a lot of it’s sort of bias, though. Something gritty, a little gory to add a touch of realism.
By the end, it felt like shock value over substance. Many thanks to Macmillan Children’s Books for kindly providing a copy of this for review. Jun 11, Maggie rated it it was amazing. We follow along as each character is torn between being normal and being evil. Although, in all fairness, Roberts treats all her characters the same, even her main ones. I did feel that the characters had become complacent.
In a book where the monster can hide in plain site, or even set clever traps, and converse pleasantly, suspicion can and does fall on every character and it is best to do as Mason is advised and, “trust no one. Well… maybe just one little peek… Review originally posted on my blog A Belle’s Tales Add all three to Cart Add all three to List. Not through world wars or a military coup or nuclear weapons as with so many other dystopians, but with a dark and insidious voice that infiltrates and overtakes the majority of the population, turning them into psychopaths bent on killing anyone in their path.
And they finally meet two pages before the last page of the book? It was one graphic scene after another, with no plot.
On a whole, this was a pretty good take on a post-apocalyptic horror story and it was a fun series to read through for the summer. I loved the world that Jeyn created, and I loved the characters. Clementine and Michael were adorable but I hated what the author did with that situation. But they will still come. There are no guarantees made, no assurances that things are going to turn out as expected. It was fun, entertaining and so so much better that I though it was going to be.
Will the last book be repetitive as well, or is it something worth while that I should definitely read? Do you mean they fist-bumped?

Okay, so I finally picked up the last book with a high expectation that the ending would be great. To me, this is apocalyptic fiction since it’s set during the end of the world, not after.
Mason, Aries, Clementine and Michael are four teenagers battling to stay alive after the murderous rage apparently instigated by a series of massive earthquakes appears to have taken over most of the population. Mostly everyone was unrealistically lucky rather than totally moronic, with one very large exception: I do not really know what to say about him because he comes and goes with absolutely no reason and he was hiding something.
Clementine, the only survivor of an emergency town hall meeting that descends into murderous chaos, is on the run from savage strangers rogerts used to be her friends and neighbors.
This is my first zombie novel and it surprised me how much I liked it. And hey, it’s hell of a fast read.

Apparently this not-very-special act of life-saving earned Daniel Aries’s undying devotion, despite the fact that he is very shifty, zeries a habit of abandoning her and doesn’t seem all that trustworthy. However, the world-building in this novel was a little lacklustre.
Get attacked by ‘bagger’ 2. First of all, none of the above questions are really answered.
Dark Inside Series by Jeyn Roberts
I loved the other books in this series and honestly gave up hope of this book ever coming out. One of the characters wanted to find her brother but the others had no drive for anything, nothing that made me care about them. At first, it was a serues confusing because the 4 POVs were almost too much, but after a while I had gotten to know the characters more and it wasn’t that confusing anymore.
It really makes your think about kind of person you’d be if the world was in an apocalyptic disarray and what you’d do to survive, as it follows four different characters on their journeys. But this whole book felt like horror, not just survival or zombie or whatever. But the big niside was:
