Meanwhile, Zombie, a boy who gives up his name along with his old life, struggles to figure out how to make his life have meaning when the destruction of the human race seems completely inevitable.
This book is fast-paced and action packed with characters that are as likeable as they are flawed. The book ends with a somewhat open end which I like, but sure enough, there's a sequel on the horizon. I hope it is as interesting as this book. Not surprisingly, there is also a movie adaptation headed our way.
As I mentioned, I was truly scared as I was reading this book which doesn't happen too often, and I loved it. This is the first book in a quartet, I believe, and I need to get going on the second book, The Curse of the Wendigo, right away. Overall, I think it's safe to say I like Rick Yancey's style, and I'll be on the watch for anything he comes up with.
