#Review of In the After (In the After #1) by @demitrialunetta

They hear the most silent of footsteps.
They are faster than anything you've ever seen.
And They won't stop chasing you...until you are dead.

Amy is watching TV when it happens, when the world is attacked by Them. These vile creatures are rapidly devouring mankind. Most of the population is overtaken, but Amy manages to escape—and even rescue “Baby,” a toddler left behind in the chaos. Marooned in Amy’s house, the girls do everything they can to survive—and avoid Them at all costs.

After years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope, a colony of survivors living in a former government research compound. While at first the colony seems like a dream with plenty of food, safety, and shelter, New Hope slowly reveals that it is far from ideal. And Amy soon realizes that unless things change, she’ll lose Baby—and much more.

Rebellious, courageous, and tender, this unforgettable duo will have you on the edge of your seat as you tear through the pulse-pounding narrow escapes and horrifying twists of fate in this thrilling debut from author Demitria Lunetta.

This book has been sitting around for a while now.  I am so glad that I got a chance to read it.  Aliens galore in this one.  The plant looking kind.  This book was full of great twists and well one at the end that will leave you screaming OMG WTF!!!!  

I can't wait to read book two!  

The story is fast paced, you have aliens that act like zombies, and was awesome!! 

I really loved how this book was split up into three parts.  As I read this while everyone in the house was sick.  I could just read it in parts and go deal with runny nosies etc.  So it made it go much faster.  

Survival skills are abound in this one and I have to say that Amy is the bomb!!!  

I really hope to learn more about how the aliens (no spoilers) came to be etc.  And I so want to learn more about Baby.  

Although there is not much romance in this one.  I hope that we get more in book two.  

For me the ending of this one I kinda guessed it but then was also thinking no thats not it.  Its something else.  But I did end up guessing right.  So I don't know it was way out there but not. So ya I know I'm confusing you but just go read this one you won't be disappointed. 

 Go Into This One Knowing 
Twisted ending! Amazing Debut!
