I love Eve Langlais’ books although when I first read about this one, I was kind of hesitant but I was very pleased to discover that Eve lived up to my expectations and I enjoyed the book very much. I was quite taken with Hannah’s character and I have to say if the apocalypse happens in my lifetime I want an Apocalypse Cowboy just like Brody in my life.
From New York Times and USA Today Bestseller Eve Langlais comes a story about second chances - with zombies!
It figured that the last man on earth would be the one who broke her heart.
The world died practically overnight, leaving behind sparse pockets of survivors, who must learn to live without electricity, internet, cable, or grocery stores.
When it came to survival, it was kill or be killed. And the most important rule of all; don't let the zombies catch you.
When Brody rides off into the sunset, with grandiose dreams, he leaves behind not just his small town but also his first love. But the hopes he had of making it big are shattered when a deadly virus hits, and those who survive return as zombies to hunt the immune. Lonely in this new reality, he finds himself drawn back to his hometown and rediscovers the woman he left behind.
Hannah never thought the expression, "Not if you were the last man on earth" would ever come back to haunt her, but when the world's population is decimated by a deadly virus, she regrets her words, especially when Brody comes riding back into her life. A very alive Brody who reminds her she's not just a survivor but also a woman.
Eking out an existence in this new world is hard. Forgiving the blunders of the past sometimes harder.
Against all odds, Brody and Hannah survived the plague and have prevailed against the undead, but will their stubborn nature still tear them apart?
