A zombie novel.
For the past two years, Jules has floated through life.
When the virus was released it changed everything about the world. Jules lost her mom and her home, forcing her to live with the father she barely knows. Now, even as society works to rebuild, Jules still feels like she doesn’t quite fit in.
Then she meets Roman.
Even before the zombies, he only had himself to depend on. Brooding and rebellious, Roman isn’t anyone Jules would have pictured herself with before the zombies came. But now she finds herself willing to give up everything to be with him.
The attraction is too strong for either one of them to ignore, but Roman and Jules soon discover that the uncertainty of their new world extends much farther than just the zombies. When disaster strikes, Roman must race against the most terrifying clock imaginable to save Jules, or once again end up alone.
Alone by Kate L Mary gave me everything I expected from a Zombie book. It gave me scared humans trying to fight for survival and the savage side that is to be expected after surviving an apocalypse. The characters are likeable and loathsome and has a teenage romance included just to complicate matters. However, this was very similar to what I would see from an episode of The Walking Dead. As I’m a big fan of that show, it was pretty easy to guess which way this story line would head. Thankfully, Kate L Mary has given us an alternate ending. I enjoyed both endings equally and having a choice between a good ending and a bad one was refreshing for this type of book as they both left you with completely different feelings for the world and people contained in this book.
The writing is great, easy to follow and become immersed in.
Overall, it’s a good read and one that I recommend if you love a good zombie story.
