Recommends it for: sci-fi/fantasy fans
Recommended to Darlene by: OHFB I think
Well, that was fun! Though, I suppose the subject matter: dystopia, life after almost all human life has disappeared from the planet wouldn't be considered 'fun' in anyone's book. Unless you are a sci-fi/fantasy buff, that is. And fantasy does play a big part in what happens next.

Still, the author explores the extent of emotions a person might have being the one left behind. Alone, the main character, Sophie, a 17-year-old, tries to find her father or anyone. She goes through an awful time but h

I chose this rating because it is an attention grabbing, fast moving book.
It deals with self exploration, problem solving, self reliance, trust and growth.
I recommend this book for everyone.

The book has a new twist on the end of the world scenario. It becomes a different world with a crossover to myths. Great characters and lots of action.

This was very different from the other books I have read by this author. It was an interesting concept to have most of the people in the world, or at least in this part of it, disappear overnight. There were no messy bodies to contend with, but there were a few accidents when drivers and pilots vanished. It seems that when the people disappeared, some strange and exotic animals appeared. The few peple that are left must learn to live in a world where no electronics work, there is no electricity, ...more

I really loved this book, and I even wound up dreaming about it, no I had a nightmare about it. The premise is very interesting, and I don't think the author needed to explain why AFTER happened, although it might have been nice. This book would also be great for a teen, as there isn't anything that I teen couldn't read, and I think a teen would really enjoy it.

I would love to see this book turned into a movie, as just as in Dune, there were some things that I couldn't picture in my head. I thi

I loved this book! The world the author built is fascinating and really fun to read and think about. It's dystopian, but definitely the coolest dystopian setting you could possibly have. I mean, the main character, Sophie, has pixie friends! Not going to lie, I was extremely jealous reading about that.
Sophie did get on my nerves once or twice, what with some of her stupid decisions (at least they were stupid to me; others might not agree). I also wished the author had gone into more of the new a

I have to say that I loved the idea of the book/plot, but I could not get into it until about 50% through. One thing I liked was recognizing all of the locations in the book having lived in California and then Oregon myself. After halfway through, I could barely put down. Without spoiling the ending, all I can say is that I was VERY disappointed. The romantic in me wanted SO much more. That is not how I'd have ended it at all, and because of that will likely not spend time reading the rest of ...more

This was a fun post apocalyptic book. Quick read. I am not sure if the author was planning on writing a sequel of this world, but if she (totally assuming this is a lady by the writing) wasn't, the end is sort of half assed.

I don't remember ever reading a book that will be so dated though. Like the references used and slang terms will make this book one of those hilarious that was your life stories in 20 years.

Also, this was the first ebook only story I've read and the editing was questionable
May 20, 2015 Cassie rated it it was amazing
this was another book that I immediately wanted to turn around and read over again. I loved the world that this book takes place in. I'm not usually one for romance in books, I like action and adventure, but the romance in this book wasn't overwhelming or boring. It meshed well with the rest of the story. I would read this again, and recommend it to others.
Feb 23, 2014 Melody rated it it was amazing
Unfortunately I started reading this book about 1030 at night and finally put out the light about 3 hrs later. Very compelling story. How would you react if you woke up and everyone was gone? This is the story of what one young woman did and how she reacted to the things and eventually people around her. I hope the next in the series is as good.
Jul 17, 2013 Susan rated it really liked it
Great book! A little creepy in one aspect, a little out there overall, but the concept was unique and interesting. Main character's attitude was frustrating, but it was needed to show the eventual contrast. I will be reading the sequel. I can read it anytime, because this book came to a nice conclusion. Love that, for sure!

I had a hard time deciding between a 3 and 4 star rating. The story is interesting and makes me want to read the next book, but there are several typos which kind of makes me crazy. I do love this author though so I went with the 4.

I really like this author and have been reading her books for awhile. This wasa fun book with a serious subject matter. Wish I could have finished sooner but work always gets in the way of my reading.

Another wonderful book from a talented writer. Bevill has been my favorite author for some time now. I didn't give this book five stars as it moved a little slower than others, but still a fantastic read.

Another end of the world/last survivors scenario (I don't know how I keep stumbling into this topic lately), but with a much more hopeful tone than some. It was interesting and entertaining and made me hope for a follow-up novel.

Great plot, well developing characters, not many typos.

Loved this book about the aftermath of an apocalypse. Teenager wanders, meets others, as well as all the new things in the world.
Very well-done. Looking forward to the sequel.

I like this author. Even if it wasn't cheap, I'd still read her books. This is the fifth book I've read by this author and if I can, I will pick up more of her work to enjoy.

This book had me glued to my Nook. I couldn't stop reading it and it's unlike any other kind of book I've ever read. I downloaded the second book as soon as possible!

This book has an interesting take on life after people. Well, most people. There was plenty of intrigue as well. A very different kind of story. I can't wait until the next one.

This is not the type of book I would usually read but gave it a try because C.L. Bevill is one of my favorite authors. I was surprised. I loved this book. It was a little weird but a good read.
