EIGHTEEN MONTHS AGO, THE WORLD LEARNED THE UGLY TRUTH:
GOD EXISTS. HE JUST DOESN’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT US.
After a deadly virus wipes out most of the world’s population, those of us who survive are left as food for the Damned, the walking corpses ravaged by the infection.
Yet, something far more sinister stirs in the bowels of New York City. The Four Horsemen are prowling the streets, kidnapping young girls and dragging them back to their lair. And when a supply run becomes a rescue mission turned deadly, I’m left at the mercy of a sexy stranger.
Jax Constantine weaves himself into my life with blood tingling charisma and a smile that rekindles my hope in love. But a dark secret lurks beneath his penetrating gaze and sizzling touch. One he’s not willing to share, leading me to believe he might not be the man I thought.
Now, humanity’s last stand rests in my hands. To save a world consumed by evil, I must choose between stopping the Devil from claiming an already scorched Earth as his own or saving the man I love.
The same man destined to curse my soul.
Uncaged Review: This is a true good vs. evil in all sense of the word. In this dystopian world, the evil is Samuel (or the devil himself) trying to free himself from Hell so he can have dominion over earth. Survivors have to fight off the lesser demons that destroy everything in their path, and if you get scratched or bitten, you become a zombie-like creature and there is no cure. The devil’s Lieutenants are the Four Horsemen and they are kidnapping young girls to try to find a vessel who will carry the child that Samuel can take over.
A lot of twists and turns, it will make you laugh and cry, and still have hope for humanity. There is a lot of religious overtones which I expected with an angels vs. demons apocalyptic world, but it’s not preachy. Action packed with plenty of gory fight scenes and a few hard-hitting sex scenes. But this is book that has enough action and twists and turns to keep you turning pages. Excellent start to a new series.
