Devour drops us right into the zombie apocalypse as we join the lead character, Liv, and her infant baby as they desperately try and outrun a zombie horde. They are only moments away from their final destination and safety when things break bad.
We then jump back to hear how they got to that moment.
The story is action-packed and keeps moving as society collapses around the main character. She bands with other survivors to try and make it to her safe haven. R.L. does a great job of pulling us in and leaving us hanging as we wait with baited breath to find out how things will turn out.
What did I like about this story?
I liked a lot of things about this book, specifically some fresh and fun elements the author uses to tell her story, including her unique form of zombie armor. There’s another unique aspect to the way her zombies behave at night that kept me interested and wondering what other new takes on the zombie apocalypse the author might have. I also really liked the transformation that the main character goes through in the book. R.L. puts her through some tough moments, but these shape her into a new woman by the time her story comes to an end.
What didn’t I like about this story?
The only area I didn’t like in this story was I couldn’t figure out how the baby survived all of the attacks and fights that Liv found herself in. It seemed like the baby surely would’ve gotten injured in these various encounters.
As mentioned above, the narration was excellent. TJ brought the story to life with passion and vigor. She gave unique voices to each of the characters as needed and is the lifeblood that kept the story engaging throughout the listen.
Conclusion: (Aka: Would I listen to more by this author?)
Yes, I am very excited to listen to the next book and find out what happens next!
I give this book an 8 out of 10.
