My Rating: 4 stars

Summary: 3 years, 1 month, 1 week and 6 days since I’d seen daylight. One-fifth of my life. 98,409,602 seconds since the heavy, steel door had fallen shut and sealed us off from the world

Sherry has lived with her family in a sealed bunker since things went wrong up above. But when they run out of food, Sherry and her dad must venture outside. There they find a world of devastation, desolation…and the Weepers: savage, mutant killers.

When Sherry’s dad is snatched, she joins forces with gorgeous but troubled Joshua – an Avenger, determined to destroy the Weepers.

But can Sherry keep her family and Joshua safe, when his desire for vengeance threatens them all?

Review: This honestly could have been a five star book. It was actually that good. Almost everything about this book is perfect. I only had a couple of problems with it. For one, it was way too short. Everything just happened way too fast. There could have been so much more. I also had a problem with the main character, Sherry. She just didn’t seem to really care about her grandmother at all. That just didn’t seem to come across as realistic. Other than those two things I had a huge problem with, everything else seemed great. I can’t wait to read book two, The Life Beyond, and continue on with this story.
