Description

In the aftermath of a war, America’s landscape has been ravaged and two thirds of the population left dead from influenza. Fifteen-year-old Stephen Quinn and his family were among the few that survived. But when Stephen’s grandfather dies and his father falls into a coma, Stephen finds his way to Settler’s Landing, a community that seems too good to be true.

There he meets strong, defiant, mischievous Jenny and when they play a prank on the town bully’s family that goes horribly wrong, they find themselves in the midst of a battle that will change Settler’s Landing forever.

    It is good to see a young male protagonist in a young adult fiction novel. I was beginning to wonder if they existed.Stephen Quinn, 15, and his father are living in a post apocalyptic world which was devastated by an unknown plague. They travel around the country as salvagers who trade their wares to stay alive. However, their luck has run out and they stumble upon some slavers which leads to a horrible injury to Stephen’s dad. Lost and alone Stephen has to rely on strangers (something his grandfather said to never do) to help him get a handle on his life. See my complete review at The Eclectic Review

    I'm on chapter 4 so far and I'm really impressed already.This book has surprises and starts off with a death. Basically, it's about a father and a son trying to survive the virus or sickness that has been taking over the world. There are also a lot is suspense like hiding from unexpected characters and objects.You never now what's going to happen next. Will this little group survive the eleventh plague or die trying.Over all I love the book so far and I can't wait til later on in the book when it gets really exciting.

    when a prank goes wrong, chaos erupts. now the main characters, two kids named jenny and Stephan find themselves in the middle of a war just before the freezing cold winter. will they survive? can they even survive? I think this book was very good. I would recommend it because it is full of action, intensity a little bit of love. This book also has a great story. This was an excellent book especially for Jeff Hirchs first.

    Starts very slow, but if you can make it past the first few chapters, I can promise not only will you be hooked, but you will be swept up in a whirlwind of fights for survival, and heartstring tugs. Masterful, pulling the reader in and entwining them in the lives of the characters.

    Dystopian novel. Characters were just "OK"; situations seemed repetitive and decision-making by the characters somewhat lackluster.
  • (4/5)
    I really enjoyed this book. I found it to be quite a realistic look at what may happen years after the breakdown of society. It's told from a teenager's point of view and the voice stays true to that teenager.

    I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys post apocalyptic fiction.
