I absolutely love historical fiction and read a lot of it; I love to learn history this way. I also enjoy reading science fiction, fantasy, horror, thriller and non-fiction science.
In a world that has supposedly recovered from a zombie outbreak, Rebekah and her husband a trying to rebuild their life until Rebekah's husband is targeted and killed by a strange-acting group of zombies. Rebekah fears that these zombies were different than the rest and the attack was planned due to her husbands research. In her grief, she determines that there is a conspiracy and Rebekah turns to revenge. Meanwhile, Rebekah has to put up a facade of normalcy, or else be taken away. Rebekah sets out to place herself into the world of the dangerous people who train these strange-acting zombies, with the help of a bartender, Preston, she finds more than she thought possible.
I liked that the story takes place in the 'afterworld'- a world that is recovering from a zombie apocalypse. There is still danger, but it is from an unlikely source, the one that Rebekah and Preston are determined to bring down in revenge for their loved ones. Now, zombies are being trained to fight one another or a specific target, essentially being used as weapons. This gave the story a unique plot with something other than just killing all the zombies. There is also a science-fiction twist with the idea of cloning going on. From the prologue, I knew that this story would be good, an emotional opening, but one that fuels Rebekah's intentions. Rebekah is an extremely tough character and I enjoyed seeing her increase her skills in an attempt to uncover the conspiracy. Preston is a nice balance to her character, sweet but tough and smart. Preston and Rebekah sort through conspiracies and cover-ups offering up there are plenty of thrills, action sequences and emotional roller coasters
