Life for Riley ends when her young children die in her arms…victims of a global viral outbreak that claims the lives of everyone she’s ever known. Left to fend for herself with only a dog as her companion, she sets out on a journey to find others, leaving notes everywhere she goes…hoping that one day someone will come looking for her. When Riley meets the handsome yet mysterious Connor on the streets of Downtown San Diego, they form a bond unlike either has experienced before. When the things that go bump in the night turn out to be more than nightmares, the trio sets off for the mountains in search of an isolated resort where they can hunker down, away from the ominous shadows of the dead city streets. The peace and tranquility of the woods isn’t enough to keep the darkness away for long though and soon Riley and Connor are forced to accept that the World and the few people left alive in it will never be the same. The shadows of their past may haunt them forever…threatening to destroy what little dreams they have left of a future unless they fight to stay in the light and never lose their hope. – via Goodreads
I honestly had no idea what this book was about when I downloaded it as a freebie. I’m glad I decided to read it. Trish Marie Dawson has a talent for painting mental pictures to follow along with the plot. The first part of the story was somewhat plain and boring, but that changed once Riley and Conner decided to leave the city and head for the resort. I loved how the story was told in first person through Riley. So many authors these days tend to lean toward third person points of view. There was just the right amount of romance without going overboard. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. The only part I did not like was the fact that it ended. It was a great cliffhanger! I cannot wait for the next installment!
