Title: Haven, the Apocalypse Chronicles
Author: Laury Falter
Release date: May 23, 2013
On an ordinary day in early September, Kennedy Shaw leaves for school unaware that within a few minutes the world she knows will be gone – succumbed to a zombie outbreak of epidemic proportions. After finding a safe haven inside the security of her enclosed high school, she learns that four others have survived, one being a bold, mysterious transfer student from Texas whose unruffled demeanor harbors more than a cool interest in her. As they struggle to survive the dead fighting their way inside, will Kennedy discover there is more to life than survival? And will she and others find a way to live in this terrifying new world?
I've heard so many good things about Laury Falter as an author, though I never got around to actually reading the Guardian Series, so this was her first book I read. It was a fun read, and I loved how Laury worked with the idea of zombies. Also, if you love paranormal, you will love this. What I loved most about the book was the character development, and the characters themselves. It's east to connect with the characters, and I especially loved Kennedy. She's a strong character with personality, which I seriously don't think there are a lot of in YA. I was hooked to the book from page one, and I do promise you one hell of a story. I mean, zombies :) I will check out Laury's other books - she's a writer to look out for!
