Review By Elizabeth Delana Rosa of Apocalipstick by Lisa Acerbo
New Adult, Dystopian, Zombie, Horror, Romance
Life is bad after the apocalypse…the undead just made it worse. Jenna should be having the time of her life at college. Instead, her one desire is survival. She lives in a world gone insane after a virus kills most of the population. Being alive after the apocalypse is bad, but when the undead return, hungry for humans, times turn darker. For Jenna and a small group of survivors, the goal is to reach the High Point Inn. At the inn, Jenna develops feelings for Caleb, who, while exotic and intoxicating, is not quite human. Will this new utopia last?
I got a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book. I’m not really into the whole New Adult thing. I often see that authors use it as a way to write erotica involving younger and younger people. However, this book had the perfect amount of violence, sexual tension, non-graphic sex and great story telling. I loved how Jenna was just an average girl who is faced with extraordinary circumstances. I also like how this story weaved a new and different zombie mythology. The ones who are bitten and survive become much like a vampire who are light sensitive flesh-eaters. I really enjoyed this book and the development of the characters, how they made mistakes but learned ultimately what it means to be human.
