The story is set in the post-apocalyptic world, where these zombie-like creatures have come to earth after a meteor shower. They infect people with an oil substance that creates another zombie and so forth. throughout time the zombies begin to mutate and another phase they go through call scraping, which you will have to read to know what the process is about.
The story is focused around a group of scavengers from Brighton who leave their colony to go on searches for necessities needed by the community. They encounter people who live in "The Wild" or also known as the slums, where they use ASL as there 1st language. The scavengers from Brighton come across other from colonies and learn how to work together and who to trust.
The book is titled Year 50 because once the apocalypse started the old world was dead and gone and the new world began and its been 50 years since the zombies have come.
This book was a very interesting read, different from other books in this genre. Kind of wanted more zombie action, but was satisfied with what I received. This book is currently free on amazon and should be checked out if you are interested in zombies, post apocalypse, and action. ...more

Just finished reading Cara Mia by Denise Verrico. I stayed up all night to complete it knowing I had to be up early in the morning for work. That is hJust finished reading Cara Mia by Denise Verrico. I stayed up all night to complete it knowing I had to be up early in the morning for work. That is how wonderfully written and enthralling it is.
This was my first time ever reading anything by Denise Verrico and let me tell you I cannot wait to read the next three books in the series. The book is filled with passion, sexiness, evolution, and so much more. She invokes all your senses with her writing. Its as if you are there with these characters instead having a voyeuristic look into their lives.
The book follows Mia and Kurt as they fight to be together by any means necessary. They betray so many important people who had influence in who they are. They cannot trust anyone, for everyone can be a pawn of deception in their game of survival. All Mia wants is to walk once more in the sunlight and knows that it can be possible through lots of scientific research she has discovered.
She and Kurt find themselves in a security science lab where they were told they would be safe. But are they really? if so, why must the be separated.
Mia becomes allies with a Doctor who comes in to speak with her to know the truth as to why she is hiding. She takes him from the beginning of how she was created into a vampire/ Immortyl to the present. She endures lots of pain, cruelty even toture as a vampire none that she ever imagined could be possible. Giving your mortality for an immortal life isn't always what it seems to be.
This was a page turner of a book, I enjoyed it from beginning to end. There were no slow dragging points to the story. Anyone who loves, science and vampires this is a must read for you....more
