I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Imagine a world where zombies exist. Yes they are scary looking and do try to kill you. Then the New Alliance, a powerful military group swoops in with a vaccine and now all the zombies are dead. With aiding us with the vaccine, the New Alliance has taken control of the country. Jenna lives with her mom in a crappy apartment and they try to live life as best they can. After her dad died, Jenna's mom hasn't been the same. Out of the ...more

A real cracker! This book has so many appeals. It is a dystopian YA book in essence, however it is completely unique in that it is based much further along the line. Meet Jenna, who has only known life since the apocalypse and therefore the regime that was borne from it. She lives with her mother after her fathers death, however, when his old colleagues break into her flat, her mother and her realise that things were not quite as they thought. This book is very well written, the characters are b ...more

After is a great book with elements of resident evil but for a YA audience. Jenna lives with her mom in former Manhattan. The country is ruled by the New Alliance, a group of ruthless soldiers who have complete control over the inhabitants.
It's an interesting take, the real threat here is the Alliance while the zombies are practically 'everyday' to people because they have lived with the threat of them for so long. Definitely worth reading whatever age you are.

You find my full review for After in all its formatting glory on my blog SleepsOnTables.

Actual rating: 3.5

After follows the point of view of two people. The first is Jenna who’s just trying to get by after her father apparently committed suicide. A few chapters in we meet Wesley who is just a couple years older than Jenna and is the former research assistant to her father. These two live in a world where the fear and panic of an outbreak of zombies is a very real thing. Jenna gets a surprise vis

*I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

This book, man! I was unsure about it starting out, not knowing this author and having read some rather awful zombie books in the past few months (don't look for reviews, they would have been one star and I won't leave those unless I agreed to an honest opinion; I had bought those on my own). But, while it took me a little bit to get into the story due to my trepidation, once it sucked me in, I was hooked.

I know this book is mean

After is a great book! It’s compelling read, and not just your typical zombie story. It had me hooked from the first page and the action does not stop throughout the book. Fans of Legend by Marie Lu and Divergent by Veronica Roth will enjoy this book.

This book is hard to review without giving away spoilers but it takes place in dystopian America. The main character Jenna is still grieving over her father’s death. He was the most important scientist working a cure for a deadly plague. The plague

Great zombie novel. Doesn't overdo the zombies and focuses more on the main character and her plight. Jenna's dad has supposedly killed himself but when his boss kidnaps her, she realises that everything isn't as it seems. Her dad was a top scientist for a company called Gene Pharm. he helped come up with the vaccine against zombies.
Trapped in an underground cell, Jenna has no choice but to team up with her dad's old lab assistant whom she hates.
Told in dual prospective this novel is a must re

I was given a free copy of this book to review. Truth to tell, I was worried when she sent it to me, I've read some bad zombie stories. But as I thoroughly enjoyed Daemon Persuasion when I reviewed it for her, I thought I'd give it a chance. I am happy I did. Now she just needs to finish writing the others so I can finish reading them.

What a riveting story. Gregory's take on zombies is original and her storytelling is fast-paced. There was action, there was intrigue and there was love: the three key ingredients to creating the most memorable stories. And the ending... Wow! What happens next?!

I loved this book! The main character Jenna was great, unlike so many characters she doesn't start out strong but rather develops her strength as the story goes on and she has to handle all the awful things that are thrown at her. Also, I thought Wesley was a great character too and I liked that they didn't instant fall in love, rather they pretty much hated each other to begin with and love and trust developed as they were thrown together. 

Also, this isn't your usual zombie novel, there was act
