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.
My Thoughts : I have to Say I enjoyed this book. While I thought the hero and heroines story needed more umph. This was a great read the beginning of the book had me hooked how she lied then nearly got cornered in the first few pages. I love how it makes you really think about humanity and what would happen. Would the dynamics of people be the same as they are now with different classes or be different in a post apocalyptic world. This book touches a little bit of all of that. I have to say I was a little bit annoyed with the contempt or racism of another ,but it made me really feel like the characters were real . I can't wait till I can read the second one. This Gets the SiNners Stamp of Approval.
