I’m still not sure about this one. The beginning didn’t grab me, but I kept going to see what the disaster was going to be.
I love a good disaster/apocalyptic story and the disaster that occurs in Alone: Chasers is pretty catastrophic and dramatic.
However the pace throughout was very slow and I struggled to engage with the characters. I found myself skimming through the pages to find the hook or the point to the story.
It didn’t happen until the last chapter…it was a long wait, but it was a beauty! I didn’t see it coming & there was an elegant simplicity to the twist that I enjoyed.
Will it be enough to make me read #2 Survivor? Stay tuned…
The trip of a lifetime just turned into the end of the world.
When Jesse crawls out of the wreckage of a subway car and emerges into daylight, he’s greeted by a living nightmare. An unexplained force has destroyed New York City, turning skyscrapers into ash, cutting off all power and communication. Jesse and his new friends, Dave, Anna and Mini are dazed but unhurt. The other survivors are not so lucky. Every human being they encounter is infected, gripped by an unquenchable thirst that drives them to monstrous acts of violence.
Somehow, Jesse has to escape. But first, he has to stay alive.
