After a year, scientists believe the population has died, and without living hosts, so has the virus. That's the theory, anyway. But when the PODs are opened, survivors find the surface holds a vicious secret. The virus mutated, infecting those left top-side and creating... monsters.
Eva and David hide from the infected in the abandoned PODs. Together they try to build a life--a new beginning. But the infected follow and are relentless in their attacks. Leaving Eva and David to fight for survival, and pray for a cure. (Goodreads)
I've been looking forward to this one for AGES and it was totally worth the wait! Michelle has written an incredibly believable and vivid portrayal of one of my worst nightmares: a raging infection that no one can stop. I completely felt for poor Eva having to face the horrors of her world falling apart, and then having to say goodbye to her family to enter the PODs. Honestly, I can hardly imagine having to do that. The things Eva goes thought are crazy, but just what I would expect to see happen if this situation were really going on--something you may have picked up on as being a big deal for me--I love a believable plot :)
Eva and David are just, well, wow. Loved them. Loved their relationship, the way Eva handled herself, David's devotion, and their clear love for one another. I rooted for them the whole way through, even when I had no friggin' clue how on earth they were going to get out of a situation. Seriously, a few places I was sitting there reading, practically tearing my hair out to read faster, just so I'd know what happened :) This was definitely a keep-me-up-til-the-middle-of-the-night book. I loved it!!
