Seventeen-year-old Krista must quickly figure out how she’s going to survive in the zombie-destroyed world. The one advantage humans have is that the zombies hate humid environments, so they’re migrating west to escape its deteriorating effects. The survivors plan to construct a wall at North Platte to keep the undead out, and Krista has come to Nebraska to start a new life.
Zombies aren’t the only creatures she has to be cautious of—the other survivors have a dark side. Krista must fight not only to live but also to defend everything she holds dear—her country, her freedom, and ultimately, those she loves.
Did someone say Undead??!!!! If you are an avid follower of PTB, you know, that I love all things creepy…especially the undead. I really enjoy the books that focus on the characters and how they live post apocalypse – of course a book titled Life After the Undead grabbed my attention.
Life After the Undead (LATU) is unlike any post-apocalyptic book, that I have read. Most books cover the outbreak and getting to the safe haven, LATU covers what happens after you reach your safe haven. The Undead, seem to flock to the Northern Western states – most believe it has to do with decomposition rates in humid climates. Whatever the reason, it allows for life on the east side of the United States to return to a “normal” post apocalyptic state. Things have changed, but life carries on.
The main character Krista survives the outbreak and reaches her safe haven within the first few chapters, then the story jumps ahead two years. After doing the same thing for 2 years straight, Krista wants out; she hears rumors about a “wall” being built to keep the zombies on their side (west coast). Krista wants to be a part of this group and jumps and the chance; Krista’s new life on the east coast wasn’t going to be easy but she never imagined having a volatile jealous roommate. The undead are not Krista’s biggest threat.
The twist on the zombies, really hooked me with this one but I enjoyed getting to see how the world was run after the dust had settled. A quick, unique, an enjoyable read for anyone that loves the undead.
