Recommended for: military and scifi fans
Read from June 10 to 13, 2012

The last surviving city of the zombie apocalypse is running out of resources, and is very close to being infiltrated by the zombies that wait outside their walls day and night. Maria is selected to go on a secret mission that, if it works, will give them more access to vital resources. But the government doesn't tell her everything, and she soons finds herself dealing with more than she bargained for.

I did like the gadgets and the setting and, in theory, I should like this type of dystopia. I love shows like Battlestar, Space: Above and Beyond, etc, shows that have the military and the fighting, but those shows also have the personal stories to draw me in. While there were personal struggles in this, it didn't affect me, as easily as a TV show would. But I did enjoy it, and I am still a Rhiannon Frater fan.

Damali Oh, whatever! I'm on a roll! I wrote four in the last two weeks! :D

message 11: by Desiree (new)

Desiree \O/ Woohoo!!! Are you going to continue to write them?

Damali Lol. I don't think anyone's getting any real insight from reading my reviews. Maybe I'll write one for every three books I read. :)

Desiree You'd be surprised. I tend to view the ones I write as commentaries as a good number are too short to be called reviews per se. I started writing them so I have a written record of what I liked or didn't like about the book.

Katie I write them for myself too. I note my favorite scenes and favorite lines...

Damali I have a pretty good memory, which is not always a good thing. Some bad books I wish I could forget. :)
