Mya’s world is falling apart. After a series of earthquakes, deadly animals with glowing red eyes begin attacking people and start the spread of a zombie-like plague. Safety is just a memory as she tries to make her way home. When a different creature attacks the people helping her reach Oklahoma City, Mya is sure she’ll never see the light of another day.
Despite his eerie yellow eyes and very sharp teeth, the grey-skinned creature is more intelligent and humanlike than he first appears. He’s determined to keep Mya by his side and protect her from the new world’s dangers. When his path starts taking her further away from home, she must choose between safety and her family.

My New Favorite!
A fabulous new book from Melissa Haag and Becca Vincenza! This is quite a departure in genre for both of them, but very well done with lots of mystery, humor, feels, and some darkness as well. I especially loved the serious tone that is paired with the humor in this book; the relationship between Drav and Mya was scary and terrifying at first because of who Drav is, but there are many hilarious moments when they are attempting to figure each other out and the way Drav begins to progress with the English language. There is also Mya's longing to be reunited with her family and her realization that life as she knows it, is gone. I adore this book (have read it twice already), and I am not patiently waiting for the next one. ;)
Fantastic book, can't wait for the next one!
I normally don't like to read dystopian type books, and never ever zombie books or movies- definitely not before this book anyway. But I absolutely love this book, it's my favorite book by MJ Haag/Melissa Haag to date. I'm a huge fan of this author. The events that take place in the story don't seem so far fetched as to be unbelievable. There's something about the interactions between Drav & Mya that just pulled me in, made me sigh & wish for a Drav of my own (without a zombie apocolypse though!). Mya seems to be a typical college student, but there's really so much more to her than a typical college student. Drav, some sort of Demon creature-man, is absolutely endearing with his relationship with Mya (not so much with the rest of the humans he interacts with in this book though). There's so much still to learn about everything going on in the next 2 books in this series & wondering if Mya will ever be able to reach her family or if Drav will actually leave Mya if she actually does reach her family.
The humor in this book is outstanding for lightening up the mood & the seriousness of the events. I was constantly laughing out loud. Also, even though this was written as a collaboration between 2 authors, I could not see who contributed what to the story, it was seamless, though I haven't read anything from Becca Vincenza for comparison, I've read/own all MJ Haag/Melissa Haag's books. The flow was smooth & fast, the leading characters are very likable, & has you sitting on the edge of your seat wondering -oh my, what's going to happen next?! You can see the main characters evolving, slowly becoming friends (maybe even on the verge of more?). When you hit the end of the book, you'll be mad because you'll want to keep reading to see what happens next. It is a big cliff-hanger, but the kind that's worth it, that makes you really want the next book to see where this is going because your hooked & invested in these characters. I totally can't wait for the next book in this series!
Dear M.J. Haag,
You have done it again; You have brought me to tears with your wonderful writing! Now, with Becca Vincenza I am in paroxysms of JOY over this new series. I thank you both for this amazing story!
