“Keri did not hold back. She let her readers experience the hardships of this dystopian world.”
~ Under the Covers

Keri Lake wrote an evocative story of despair and hope but ultimately, the survival of the fittest. Keri did not hold back. She let her readers experience the hardships of this dystopian world. It was dark, gritty, and heartbreaking. I will admit, the first half was a hard read but the end result was very satisfying.

This book is set in a world where a contagious disease has plagued the world. This disease will turn you into a zombie-like state, or leave you infected which can have a similar end result. While there’s hope for a cure, experiments are not always humane. There are those living within the walls who are perfectly safe and that outside wall, well, let’s just say survival is very difficult. Its sort of like The Walking Dead meets Mad Max type of world.

I love that the first half of this book was told in two different points of views from two different stations of life, experiencing different situations. I knew at some point that the stories will connect, but I couldn’t predict how. The hardships are heartbreaking but as you connect with the characters, you will trudge through right along with them…rooting for them to get some kind of reprieve.

A bit of warning, there were some characters that will not get any kind of peace. I suppose in a life where death comes so easy, it’s to be expected. I won’t mention specifics on the characters, as to avoid giving any spoilers, but know that I loved them all, villains included. Please note that this book contains explicit sexual content and violent scenes that some readers may find disturbing.

And, with all that said. I’m rating this book four and a half, making it one of the best books I’ve read for 2017. I’m hoping Keri Lake writes more of these books. She has the knack for creating fictional worlds I can easily immerse to.

About Keri Lake

Keri Lake is a married mother of two. She writes fiction in the genres of paranormal romance and urban fantasy. A graduate of Michigan State University (go green!), Keri holds 2 degrees in science but would gladly trade them both to pursue her true passion for writing. She's a flash fiction addict and a sucker for sexy men with wings.

When she isn’t toiling away on plots and protagonists, she enjoys reading, music and travel. If she could create mystical powers for herself, she’d have the ability to flash to anywhere in the world. And if she could flash to anywhere in the world at this very moment, she’d be staring at the ocean from her adirondack chair on the shores of North Carolina.

Go ahead and friend me, I love meeting new readers and talking books

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
