Stupid characters are stupid for plot convenience.
Nothing in this book works without incredible stupidity by supposedly genius and centuries old characters.

Well, The Stand this ain't.

There are numerous plot holes that are not properly dealt with, eg the phones are down (no one knows how or why) but not only is it possible to send and receive emails (so some firm of Internet) at every site they're at, but enough electricity to keep the computers charged and running. People crop up in scenes but are soon discarded when no longer necessary to the plot with little fanfair.

Dani and Zoe are on different sides of America and after the virus has devastated much of he population, the two of them are making heir way to a mutual meeting point. However you soon forget where and why (if you ever knew the latter).

There seems to be a lot of "hurry up and wait" with people getting to the next stop and staying there for several days. For dani's group the premise is to allow others to search for family and friends but apart from cce we don't know how the searches are undertaken or the results. For Zoe and dani's lovers friends and roommates all die and apart from the occasional nightmare about dani's boyfriend noone is given a second thought. In writing this review I've noticed one website (goodreads) mentioning this was the first in a post-apocalypse Romance Series. That does change my review - slightly - but not by much - as this does explain all the extraordinary amount of time is spent lusting after the attractive men in the group and both women become the focus of jealously and suspicion from other women in their mutual groups. The sex scenes - after a remarkable number of times they get interrupted mid grope - are reasonably sexy.

The set ups of the two groups were too similar to keep track off - both had lead males starting with J (Jack, Jason), both sets with dogs, psycho girls who couldnt be trusted or were downright dangerous. Switching the narrative between the two - with is logical with the two writers just became too confusing to keep track off in the end.

So in summary: reasonably sexy romance story, with too many holes in the story line (I like to hold my Romance novels to the same level of critique as every other book I read!) and too many similarities between the two narratives to keep me truly happy

This was a difficult book to get through. Generally, I make it a rule to finish the books I review, but this one was no an easy read. There were so many short, quippy references made by the main character to different stories in the series, but then she would say something like, "But that's a story for another time," leaving you not curious about that thread to the story, but annoyed that there was a piece of seemingly important information left out, and an obvious nudge to buy that book. These references make the narration of the story somewhat "choppy" and more distracting than helpful to the plot.

The plot is interesting, but I found it hard to like Kat. I get that she's had trauma and, being an assassin, she's become hardened, but she's so angry with no redeeming characteristics. Also, there's the frequent mentions of Kat's actual age, which is almost 40 years old, but because of an unexplained incident that happened in another book, she's "stuck" in an eighteen year old body, along with all the hormones

To sum the review up - I just didn't get or like this book, so I'm sorry to say that I have to give it a two star review.😒

[NOTE: I received this book as a FREE Amazon Kindle book.]

Great series!

Took me a while to read all four but am so glad I stuck with it. Loved Dani & Zoe. Loved that it was female protagonists leading the story. Would love to see more of them down the road. I look forward to the next series taking place in Alaska!!
