It is silence, not screams of terror, which proclaims the end of the world…

Thousands die instantly, but the other affected people are drawn to the Nevada desert. Nothing stands in the way of the mesmerized. Not fire, not heights, not rubble. As the bodies pile in the streets and the relentless wave of the mesmerized plods into the deadly desert, Minji is trapped in a burning city attempting to rescue her affected family.
Can one woman save her family and the world?

My Thoughts

This book was unique and amazing!! Rhiannon Frater never fails to give me the chills and an engaging story that is impossible to put down. When I first started the book, I was so confused at what was going on, but in a good way. Was it zombies? Aliens? Government conspiracy? All of those things? Seriously, I was totally intrigued from the first few pages and it was an exciting and at times terrifying adventure through to the last page. I admit, I read this a while back so I don't remember a lot of the details, but it is a story that will stick with you and I remember all of the important things that make this book super awesome!

Minji is on a family vacation in Vegas when this crazy apocalypse hits. Her husband and child are all of the sudden in some sort of trance and she doesn't know what to do or how to save them. She just knows that she has to do something. But first, she needs to keep herself alive. It's terrifying seeing hordes of people just mindlessly walking towards something, not caring about balconies or walls, or anything that is in their path. She comes across a few other immune people, but most are scared and unhelpful. She is tough and strong and goes through way more than most people could handle. I really loved her character.

This is full of suspense and tension that keeps you needing to read on to see what is going to happen next. The whole atmosphere is so creepy and chilling. Especially The Mesmerized as they are called. The behaviors of them, as well as the immune people sent shivers up my spine. You could feel the desperation of everyone and everything. As things unfold it just makes it more intense. I can't really say much more without spoiling anything. This was such an amazing read that I recommend to everyone! It is not a YA, but I believe people of all ages will really enjoy this book. Of course, beware of language and violence. It is a horror novel.  Books like this cement my love for Rhiannon Frater and are the reason I keep coming back for more and more.
