In a post-zombie world, life is what you make it . . .

Since a devastating, morphing plague swept through human and zombie populations, almost everyone who survived is an “ex” these days. Ex-human. Ex-zombie. Both creatures crave flesh, have the strength and speed of predators—and are seemingly immortal. Pierced skin and broken bones mend, but their all-consuming hunger never dies . . .

Amy is the only purely human survivor from her town: a frail. For a girl used to going it alone, trusting anyone isn’t easy, but Amy will have to. She has secrets from her past she can’t afford to face by herself, and secrets in her future that will cost her just about everything—including her humanity . . .
Joan Frances Turner was born in Rhode Island and grew up in the Calumet region of northwest Indiana. A graduate of Brown University and Harvard Law School, she lives near the Indiana Dunes with her family and a garden full of spring onions and tiger lilies, weather permitting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from frail this book was as interesting as the first however i did like the first book much better i even thought that the first book was a single book i only found out that it was a series a few years after i had finished the first book and i recently just bought the last book in the series from amazon, even thought i didnt find the second book as good as the first i still found it interesting and find that these types of books are very very different from any other zombie books that ive ever read i also find them somewhat confusing at times and the plot can be a bit hard to follow however still good nonetheless
