Recent Reads: Chasers by James Phelan

Chasers (Alone #1)Chasers by James Phelan
Publisher: K-Teen
Available: NOW! October 30

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Background: Jesse is on a UN trip with a bunch of other teens, when all of a sudden there is an explosion and a crash on the subway. He awakes to find that only himself and his friends are alive and have not become infected. Those who are infected are now Chasers, people with an unquenchable thirst, who will strive to get a drink by any means necessary.

Review: Great premise right?! yea, I thought so too. I dove into this book and the plot was very fast paced and entertaining. I must also admit with all the zombie books lately my dreams have been a bit nuts too. However the characters in this book are a little odd and there is a twist ending/ cliff hanger that only leaves you asking more questions than when you started. Some people like that I guess, but I was sad, I felt like it was a cop out. I enjoyed the atmosphere the plot created, a depressing, crumbling NYC; and I enjoyed the feeling of needing to escape, but the Chasers had a very limited role and that was upsetting.

Review copy received from Librarything's Early Review Program in exchange for an honest review.

Good for Zombies, Post-Apocalypse, possible guy read....Series is 3 books coming soon.
