Papa says everyone has a story that deserves to be told. 

Most begin years ago, after the second bomb hit, unearthing a deadly contagion that divided the population into the pure, the infected, and the Ragers. 

Many recount the moment we rose up from the ashes and started anew.

Others tell of the day we built a wall to keep them out.

For some, they’re nothing more than the vestiges left behind—a simple name carved into the knotty bark of a Juniper tree.

My story begins with a boy. A mute, from the other side of the wall, known only as Six, who touched my heart in ways that words never could, and gave me the courage to face my darkest truth.

Warning: This book contains explicit sexual content, and violent scenes that some readers may find disturbing.

Maria’s Review

➦I can’t even tell you how long it’s been since I’ve read a dystopian novel. Probably a year. Which is like, such a long time. In blogger years, that’s probably an equivalent of 7. Give or take.

➦I won’t bore you with details. But, there’s a virus. And if you like zombie-like creatures then you’ll probably enjoy Keri Lake’s variation of them. In the midst of all this awesomeness is a love story and a very very tortured hero. If you’re a fan of those types of heroes then I’m sure you will love this book. 

➦The writing style is absolutely captivating. The way the story unfolded bit by bit was amazing and I even had a couple of “aaaaaaaaah, now I get it!” moments. Granted I might not be the sharpest knife in the drawer. Just kidding. (so sharp, baby. THE sharpest.) Anywhatever, this was my first book by this author and it will not be my last. Be aware of dark undertones and adult themes here. Meaning, not really suitable for a teenager. 😡
