Life is bad after the apocalypse…the undead just made it worse. Jenna should be having the time of her life at college. Instead, her one desire is survival. She lives in a world gone insane after a virus kills most of the population. Being alive after the apocalypse is bad, but when the undead return, hungry for humans, times turn darker. For Jenna and a small group of survivors, the goal is to reach the High Point Inn. At the inn, Jenna develops feelings for Caleb, who, while exotic and intoxicating, is not quite human. Will this new utopia last?
I enjoyed Apocalipstick from the first page and found myself reading it slowly because I did not want the story to end. The characters were as genuine as the emotion. I chuckled when the protagonist’s regrets in her post apocalypse world were missing shopping and listening to music. The character’s thoughts evidenced Lisa’s ability to write from the point of view of a teenager. The love triangle will have readers picking a “team” – either Team Caleb or Team Quentin.
I enjoyed the story, bit my fingernails during the zombie scenes and grew sad when I reached the last page. I hope the author is busy writing book two, because I look forward to reading it.
