Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
Synopsis from Goodreads: When Wynter Roth is turned out of New Earth, a self-contained doomsday cult on the American prairie, she emerges into a world poised on the brink of madness as a mysterious outbreak of rapid early onset dementia spreads across the nation. As Wynter struggles to start over in a world she’s been taught to regard as evil, she finds herself face-to-face with the apocalypse she’s feared all her life—until the night her sister shows up at her doorstep with a set of medical samples. That night, Wynter learns there’s something far more sinister at play and that these samples are key to understanding the disease. Now, as the power grid fails and the nation descends into chaos, Wynter must find a way to get the samples to a lab in Colorado. Uncertain who to trust, she takes up with former military man Chase Miller, who has his own reasons for wanting to get close to the samples in her possession, and to Wynter herself.
My Review: There’s a lot to like about this book: great characters, wonderful writing and plotting and a nice quick pace. Overall I really enjoyed this read. However, I didn’t like how much the cult played a role in the book. It’s probably more my dislike of cults than an actual flaw in the book. The cult made me uncomfortable and I just didn’t enjoy reading about that. I wanted more of what was happening in the world, instead of constant flashbacks to what happened in the cult. I did like Wynter though and was interested to see how she adjusted to life outside the cult. I did find myself losing interest about halfway through though.
