I'm on a roll with the books this month! Today's post is on Flesh Eaters by Alisha Adkins.

Definitely a dark and disturbing read, this story grabbed me and didn't let go until the very end. That bleak, hopeless feeling crept in and (I suspect) will remain with me for a while. I was intrigued by the main character, Adrienne, and really wish we would have known more about her past life and how she ended up in Britain.
Adrienne wakes up to a post-apocalyptic world full of zombies and the rare living person, also trying to survive at all costs.I could feel her anguish and conflicting feelings as she was forced to make the decision to starve, or eat what was available and live. I'm not sure what happened to all the animals (pets, wildlife, cattle) but I guess this was a necessary part of the story. Her relationship with Timmy really added to the story. It gave her life some kind of purpose to protect this child (and loneliness would have been a strong factor.)
The ending was sad but seemed inevitable. All in all, it was a compelling story and I look forward to reading more from this author.
