The epic conclusion to the USA Today bestselling trilogy.
The horde is coming.
Salvation is surrounded, monsters at the gates, and this time, they're not going away. When Deuce, Fade, Stalker and Tegan set out, the odds are against them. But the odds have been stacked against Deuce from the moment she was born. She might not be a Huntress anymore, but she doesn't run. With her knives in hand and her companions at her side, she will not falter, whether fighting for her life or Fade's love.
Ahead, the battle of a lifetime awaits. Freaks are everywhere, attacking settlements, setting up scouts, perimeters, and patrols. There hasn't been a war like this in centuries, and humans have forgotten how to stand and fight. Unless Deuce can lead them.
This time, however, more than the fate of a single enclave or outpost hangs in the balance. This time, Deuce carries the banner for the survival of all humanity.
Finally tackling the last book in the series, I LOVED IT! Every flip of the page, made my heart beat faster and faster!
Plot: This is the last book in the series, so if you haven’t made your way through the first two books, go and do it now. So, I loved how this plot divulged right to the action. After staying in Salvation for some time, their time is over. They go looking for help in which turns into this awesome journey and new discoveries. This part gave me major anxiety. I was literally anxious/scared to turn the page cause I had no idea what they were walking into. The plot is amazing, keeping the reader thoroughly entertained with lots of action. The main strength of the story is surprise. Plot twists after plot twists, Horde is beautifully constructed.
Love: It makes me so giddy to see these two together!! Every time they got a few peaceful moments to themselves, I just sighed and basked in their playful banter of flirtatious laughter. Heck! I even laughed with them. It’s good to see them smile and not worry if they will make it through one last fight. Their love is infectious and certainly makes the reader grin from ear to ear.
Zombies: Zombies are the new black. They are everywhere. And the little surprise that this authors throws is..well…its out-there. The anticipation of what these zombies can do and know, made me shiver to my bones. It’s literally freaky yet weird. This is another element in the story that kept my intrigued.
Horde is an successful series brilliant in both characters and plot. It drives the reader with clever surprises and effective plot twists. A unique combination that is rare and exciting, Horde is marvelous!
I give it 5 BITES!
