    As you can see from my rating I thought is book was OKAY It didn't take long for me to read and I definitely wanted to finish once I started but At times the story was boring Even though the kids in the story explored the building they decided to consider their Home Base we didn't get to see a lot of what they did It was

    1 I decided to read this book as I got a chapter of it free in another book I read and loved it2 I found the setting of abandoned New York city interesting The idea of a city with thousands of apartments left untouched to loot and raid and have a bit of fun with the lawless society they live in now Also the ability to have fun with abandoned cars and the fact that it snows the whole of winter3We are all storytellers We write our stories

Jesse is on a school trip in New York when his subway carriage is rocked by an explosion When he and th Wow I haven t had an ending catch me this off guard in a long time Well played Phelan Well played Almost grabbed you a 4 stars thereAlas the book isn t without its flaws There could have been action to stir things up Chasers for sure and a LOT answers even for a first book in a series we basically learn nothing of what happened why or how far this apocalypse spans All we know is that Jesse and his friends got off the subway after an explosion and the whole city is in shambles The only survivors they meet are these infected humans who have a strange unending thirst for anything drinkable which includes blood As a post apocalyptic book I can say this is uite different They re far from vampires but also pretty far from being zombies so what we get is the always scary unknown We don t know what caused it or what they really need exactly and if they can recover though we do get intriguing developments on their parts I thought this was done well and I couldn t uench my thirst ha for answers fast enough leaving me to fly through this book in no time Thus it s unfortunate that we don t at least get a hint of what caused this bizarre set of circumstances that add up to what seems to be the apocalypse At least it s only book 1Since we get no answers you re probably wondering what the book shells out Well this book is about surviving in the early days of a disaster such as described than anything We don t get a lot of crazy thrills or heart pounding sieges we basically hole up in 30 Rock with our characters I didn t mind this as much as other reviewers it seems It kind of reminded me of This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers where the book is very tame in action but heavy with the fear of the unknown in addition to having a strong psychological base This one may not be as psychologically messed up but we do see glimpses of Jesse s mental instability pop up towards the end especially As for the fear of the unknown I think not knowing if and when these strange beings will be hanging out and about gives the book a lot of tension I personally enjoy these types of survival books than those that are filled with nothing than cheap thrills So yes the book is slow paced as far as infected action goes but I can t say I was bored for a minute while reading it The fascinating nature of the plot kept me captivated In the end I m thankful for the character driven plot that we got in this first novel and I think it will add up to a much stronger seuel as well knowing what we know now It makes for a very realistic representation of someone s psychological profile in such a terrifying situation I appreciated the NYC setting a lot too It s a setting that s familiar maybe a little overused but what better way to show the monstrosity of an emptiness like Jesse is experiencing When you re alone in New York City you re truly and undeniably alone I think the author may have gone a little overboard trying to bring this setting to life though With mentions of every street corner every building every sight it becomes a little tiring unless you actually live in the area and are able to follow these details Otherwise it s simply blah blah that you come to ignore It s not like it makes a difference if I know that our characters are on 7th street or on 59th all I need to know is how far they have to run ehI think this is one instance that would work better if it was made into one large stand alone novel instead of 3 short 230 pages books I guess one argument for it being so short is that the slow pacing never has time to bore but it did leave time to ponder and get impatient for answers I will definitely be reading the seuels I did really enjoy it despite it not being perfect this is the type of apocalypse that fascinates me for real You re suddenly in a world that just went poof With that said I m thinking the series when finished will be better rated than its individual installments Either way the ending of this one alone is brilliant thus worth the read At least I think so A copy was provided by the publisher for reviewFor of my

Ree friends crawl out of the wreckage they discover a city in chaos Streets are deserted Buildings are This was a very easy read it only took me so long as Christmas activities got in the wayPhelan is a good writer but parts of this book I found rather boring and repetitive Some scenes are skimmed over which would be really interesting to read if Phelan had gone in to detail instead of rushing it such as the exploration of a decaying city or the exploration of apartments in an empty skyscraper These scenes felt like filler to a back story but if they had been given attention they could have added extra depth to the book as a whole and certainly would have helped with the world building which felt a bit flat to meWhen I reuested this I was expecting some kind of dystopian featuring vampires What I got instead was no explanation at all as to what caused everyone to become so thirsty and not just for blood but for any liuid so does this make vampires Not in my opinion and no insight or hints are even given as to what caused the initial breakdown of society We are given conspiracy theories by the survivors in the book but it is all conjecture and there is nothing to back it up with I was really disappointed when I finished the book and realised that I as a reader would be given no explanation whatsoever There is a fair bit of action in this book to keep younger readers entertained but a lot of it felt uite strained to me The bloodthirsty people featured in this book nicknamed chasers didn t really provide anything new or terrifying with their shambling as they try to find a liuid source and their rather sporadic acts of violence were not described with any originalityThe twist as such I figured out fairly early on in the book so was not surprised at all by that or by what happened at the end Saying that I think younger readers would love this especially as a first foray into this genre as it is rather despairing and provides plenty of action to keep them entertained Although written well I was generally disappointed with this book as a whole as I was expecting from the synopsis For me this would be a much read if attention to detail was given to the exploring sections of the book and if an explanation was given about what was causing the infection Although disappointed I think this would be a good starting point for younger readers to be introduced to this particular genre and have even recommended my local library to purchase a copy An advance reader copy was kindly provided by the publisher through Netgalley
