4 out of 5 stars. I really like this story. My only real complaint, as shallow as it might be, is that the books aren't long enough! You could have made one decent length book between this one and the first one with the next installment thrown in. Just when the story starts to get good, the books end. Too short.The Reapers Are the Angels by Alden Bell
Zombies have infested a fallen America. A young girl named Temple is on the run. Haunted by her past and pursued by a killer, Temple is surrounded by death and danger, hoping to be set free.
For twenty-five years, civilization has survived in meager enclaves, guarded against a plague of the dead. Temple wanders this blighted landscape, keeping to herself and keeping her demons inside her heart. She can't remember a time before the zombies, but she does remember an old man who took her in and the younger brother she cared for until the tragedy that set her on a personal journey toward redemption. Moving back and forth between the insulated remnants of society and the brutal frontier beyond, Temple must decide where ultimately to make a home and find the salvation she seeks.
4 out of 5 stars. I liked this one. Not your typical zombie book and it had an unusual ending. I would read this one again. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it had some really slow parts and the fact that 20 years after the zombie apocalypse there were still abandoned places with the power still on. And cars that would start no problem. I just don't think it would happen that way. But otherwise, a good read.
