Okay, first off, if the story of a rebellious young teenage girl discovering her own ironclad inner strength and unwavering sense of duty in the face of a non-zombie apocalypse isn't your cup of tea, then grab a cup of coffee and read something else. (Maybe a cat detective book. I've got one for sale ...) But this series sings where Twilight and Hunger Games too often fall flat, and I found myself abandoning my post completing final edits on my own fourth book to turn page after page of this amazing story. Set in South Africa after a deadly virus has swept across the world, devouring human civilization in its wake, the author takes us on a heart-pounding journey of betrayal, survival, and most of all, hope. This wonderful tale uses no plot device greater than the human spirit -- no vampires, no uncanny ability to shoot the eye out of a gnat at 100 meters, no perverse sexuality -- and yet it never wavers, and it never loses its sense of honesty. For all the horrible things that Ava has come to face, challenges unfortunately all too believable in this oft-times cruel and inhuman world we live in, she always finds some way to survive. And some way to inspire. Bravo, Ms. Higgins! I only wish I could give you six stars, instead.
