After the Virus by Meghan Ciana Doidge
(Excerpt from Goodreads) After the virus decimates 99.9% of the world’s population, and all traces of humanity along with it, Rhiannon and Will are forced to move beyond their past fame, fortune, and personal demons to rescue a mute girl from the clutches of two warring cults.
Most of the population has been killed with the spread of the virus. Those that survived have broken into little groups, those that want to keep living and those that want to rule everything. There has been a discovery of people that have been infected with the virus don’t have to die, if they are fed the flesh of those that are immune to the virus.
Will is a quiet guy that has cleaned out a little town and created a nice little life for himself. While out on a foraging trip, he comes across a little girl. Although the little girl doesn’t talk, he adopts her and calls her Snickers.
Rhiannon used to be an actress before the virus struck. Now she is out on her own trying to survive like everyone else. She meets up with Will and feels like she has a little family. But her fame is coming back to haunt her when she is the number one target for one of those that wants to rule the world.
I really liked this story. Rhiannon was a strong female character with kick butt skills. Will was the passive but strong counter. And the plot flowed and was easy to get into. This is a great story for anyone that likes zombies. I hope there are more to come.
I received this book for free from the Book Rooster program in exchange for an honest review.
