In one terrifying night, the peaceful community of Creek's Cause turns into a war zone. Not one under the age of eighteen is safe. Chance Rain and his older brother, Patrick, have already fended off multiple attacks from infected adults by the time they arrive at the school where other young survivors are hiding. Most of the kids they know have been dragged away by once-trusted adults, who are now ferocious inhuman beings. The parasite that transformed them takes hold after people turn eighteen--and Patrick's birthday is only a few weeks away.
Determined to save Patrick's life and the lives of the remaining kids, the brothers embark on a mission to uncover the truth about the parasites--and what they find is horrifying.
Battling an enemy not of this earth, Chance and Patrick become humanity's only hope for salvation.
This book is actually really good (maybe it's because Gregg Hurwitz wrote it, idk). At first it seems like the parasite turns you into zombies, however they actually have a purpose to what they do. It looks as if someone not on earth is trying to take over earth/the human race.
Ben, one of the survivors is kind of a jerk. He won't listen to reason and basically does what he wants, knowing they can't really do anything to him. And he tried to kill Patrick.
Chance is uncertain he'll be able to do things without his brother beside him (he didn't die, but is kind of unable to help) but he does really well on his own. The end is a bit of a cliffhanger, so I can't wait to read the next book.
My Rating: 4 stars
