it was amazing

Feasters: An Apocalyptic Tale is a young adult novel from Solomon Petchers.

Can you remember what it was like to be a teenager? Now imagine if you were a vampire as well.

The heart of the story involves three adolescent vampires Kieran, Emily, and Andrew surviving the aftermath of a devastating zombie outbreak. With their loved ones gone—civilization in ruins, and optimism running low—this band of friends struggle to navigate the horrors around them and fight to keep alive what little trust they have in others.

At the heart of any novel is the story, and what Solomon does with Feasters is deliver a satisfying tale that proves that it’s possible to blend the zombie and vampire genre seamlessly into a believable, engaging premise. Although he reveals horrific scenes of a world gone mad, he also finds a way to let the innocence of his characters shine from cover to cover.

Solomon proves, page after page, that he knows his audience well. There’s a simplicity to Solomon’s writing that will appeal to the young in all of us who seek adventure. But what fascinated me most is his ability to weave mature situations into the narrative. His imaginative writing tests his characters but also gives more sophisticated readers a powerful connection to their youth. Solomon has tapped into what it means to be a family, even under the most challenging situations. And in the bleak world of his creation, his optimistic tone—maintained throughout—is one of the most impressive feats that I have seen in a long time.

If you are a fan of zombies and vampires the way I am, you have no choice but to see for yourself why this is such an impressive accomplishment. Do you have a reader in your life that is ready to take the next step toward slightly more mature content? Have you been searching for the perfect mixture of adventure, tension, and heart? If so, look no further than Feasters: An Apocalyptic Tale.
