My Thoughts - Story
I’m typing this as I just shut down my e-reader because my emotions are doing double time right now.


I’m pissed…yeah – I’m fucking pissed. What the fuck have you done to me Claire? How could you?


Why do I feel this way?

**This was not the ending I was hoping for

**More fallen people

**It’s not Winter of 2015

**The sneak peek into the next book didn’t tell me shit



This is why I love Claire’s writing so much. She is able to touch every single emotion I have in a few hundred pages. In one day, I cried – I laughed – I got pissed – I got the squishy feelings and I followed these characters through the world of zombies and dangerous men.


Shit, I know I should wait to write this review because everything is so new and fresh right now – my head and heart feel like a pinball machine going on a full tilt because I want to share with you all of the wonderful things about this story. This coming to Jesus moment for Nina, the beautiful wisdom of Crazy Pants, the loyalty of Mikey and the ping-pong emotions that is a result of Nova.



I am not throwing words out there or kissing ass – but I do have to share that Claire C. Riley is the top Zombie writer ever in my book. When a book comes out written by her, I don’t even hesitate to read it.


We start right up where Odium II left off – Nina and Nova need to find Hilary and Deacon to find out about the pregnancy. Mikey is on his way to the Mall for more pillaging. The story is broken apart by Nina’s POV through her mission and then Mikey’s POV through his. We switch back to Nina when the two meet back up again.


I really can’t go on about the story because I will give too much away. I can only say that I couldn’t put this down from the moment I started it today.
