Sixteen year old Wisteria Kuti has two options—track the infected around the Isle of Smythe or leave the only known safe haven and face a world infested with flesh eating biters. But even with well-armed trackers, things go wrong and Wisteria ends up alone facing certain death, until she is rescued by the mysterious Bach. Uninfected, Bach is able to survive among the hordes of living dead.
Eighteen year old Bach, from a race known as The Family, has no interest in human affairs. He was sent here to complete his Great Walk and return home as a man—as a Sen Son. The Family regard humans as Dirt People, but Bach is drawn to this Terran girl, whom he has never seen before, but somehow knows.
Hunted by flesh eaters, cannibals, and the mysterious blood thirsty group called Red Phoenix, Wisteria and Bach make their way back to the Isle of Smythe, a community built on secrets and lies.
This book is great for teens and adults who love zombie books or suspenseful books.
I found that even though it was a slow start, once it did get started it had everything that a reader wanted in a zombie story. I love that Bisi Leyton showed Wisteria as a strong young woman. I do hope the next book that they elaborate more on Bach and his background. I love the two characters (Wisteria and Bach) banter back and forth in the book. And hope to see more in the second book! The only downfall to this book is the slow start but that may be due to needing to establish the characters. A great read that I will probably read again!!
I give this book 4 1/2 stars!
