The apocalypse has come but Christians have not yet been taken up to heaven. This is a unique look at an end-of-the-world scenario that involves zombies in a way that I could possibly accept as an explanation for the existence of zombies.
Survivor is book 2 in the Sanctuary End-Times series and as such, I would recommend reading the books in order to get the most enjoyment out and understanding out of this volume.
Rory, Tion and Jose are the three main characters in Survivor. They live in an apartment building with several other survivors of the apocalypse - the alien invasion and the sickness that causes a horrible zombie-like behaviour, but does not kill its victim.
With food and especially water growing scarce, decisions have to be made about what to do. The alien Shisa will attack, and zombies, though slow also attempt to bite and spread the disease.
With one of the adults trying to run things his way, and not necessarily in a way to the benefit of the majority, things become very challenging. Many twists and turns bring danger and unexpected results along the way.
Growth can be seen in the characters of each of the three boys as they face the dangers before them and as they work together for solutions to their situations.
I enjoyed this novelette very much and was disappointed when it ended because I wanted more. I will be waiting on pins and needles for the next episode of this series.
I gave Survivor 4 stars out of 5.
Thank you to the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
