My second book from Karina Halle, and it was less creepy than The Devil’s Metal despite the man-eating zombies premise. It was a decent book for the mostly, only a tad unbelievable at some parts, but I’ll excuse that. The romance was not as exciting as I thought it would be though. Given that these things only happened in the span of a few days, I honestly thought Eve rushed thing when she agreed to be with Jake. But maybe it was just me. After one experienced a life or death situation with someone, time span may not matter much…
The main character, Eve, can be frustrating at times, but I liked her nonetheless. Although she was definitely not a tracker, I was hoping for her to show some kind of badassery throughout the story but somehow she was meant to be the damsel in distress and always in need of saving by Jake. The first one or two times were okay, but after that, it gotten old. I was also annoyed at the way Jake’s initial treatment to Eve, and how she just let it be instead of standing up for herself. Even Jake’s backstory failed to make me excuse his earlier behaviours.
The final part when Eve and Jake returned to the farm was the creepiest part. I am glad things out well for the remaining characters. Overall, the plot was okay. It just didn’t blow me away.
p/s: the cover is so pretty!
