Review: I'm very frustrated with this book. The plot was good. I was pulled into this world ending event. I kept reading wanting to know more and find out who would survive.
The characterization was well done. I was vested in Ev and Javier, but I felt their relationship was a bit forced. I thought the turn ons and attractions were a little over done. I think my favorite charater was actually Mike, who didn't come into the book until half way through. He was just an unasuming solider, yet so much more. I thought the biblical take on the apocolypse was a neat take. This was something I hadn't really read, and found it pretty refreshing.
I really feel the need to point out there was a bit of head hopping, which could make it hard to figure out who was thinking what. I wish the points of view has been better designated. Still the take on zombie apocalypse was new to me. Personally I could have done without the Satan monologues, but I have to say they did add a little extra insight into what was happening.
All in all it was entertaining and some thing different.
