What would you do if you lived through the apocalypse? The real fight to survive comes after everyone else is gone.
A plague of epic proportion sweeps the globe, leaving less than one percent of the world’s population immune. Among the living is Autumn Winters, the teenage daughter of a famous actress. When Autumn’s parents don’t come home and the city is overtaken by a dangerous faction, she goes into hiding with a small group of underground survivors. They’re led by a mysterious young man who harbors an unearthly secret, and with whom Autumn feels a deep connection.
This book was absolutely extraordinary. The author provided elaborate details and described the setting of the novel very clearly. I found it ironic that the main character’s name was Autumn Winters. As a heroine, Autumn seemed too dramatic at times, but I felt that it was necessary, given the situation she was in. I also like how the author incorporated romance into the plot. However, I felt like the romantic relationship between Autumn and Grey moved a bit too fast. My problem with this was somewhat solved when Grey reveals a secret that creates a rift between Autumn and himself. Overall, this book was great and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
