So many answers lead to even more questions. Ms. Shrum manages to take the fantastical, blend it with real scientific theories, and come out with a genre bending idea on the zombie ideals.
What if you had the power to save a persons life with just a touch? Now make it your job. For fun throw in a madman who may or may not be related to you. All of these things come together in the most mentally challenging way for our favorite heroine Jesse Sullivan.
What’s real and what’s fantasy blurs as her powers grow. She not only has to question the ever present angels, but the motives of the more mundane around her. Winston (her pug) stole my heart once again and of course even the love of a beloved pet isn’t sacred in Jesse’s hellscape. I would give more than five stars if it was available due to the excellent writing and “hey I’ve met that person” character building. This book along with the three before it build a narrative that draws the reader in. I couldn’t stop reading while alternately cussing one character while praying another was safe. Ms. Shrum has outdone herself and the sneak peak at the next novel just made the anticipation for the next novel that much harder.
If you aren’t aware I am sticking to a spoiler free review and that limits my nerdgasm to banal oversimplifications. If you haven’t read the first three books, please start with the first book. It is free on kindle so it is hard to turn down such an amazing first move in this chess game for such a price. You will thank yourself later for being introduced to this new world and what would become of such an existence. I hear the beating of an angel’s wings calling me to reread it again so I will leave you with the knowledge of purpose and place. Every character, scene, scenario, and plotline has a place and they will leave you wanting more.
