Book Summary:

Overconfidence has no place in a world where the dead rule. Nineteen-year-old Mora has learned this the hard way. After a conflict in the colony of Salem that left hundreds of people dead, Mora and her Starborn allies have been branded as fugitives by Jeremiah, the leader of Screven.

Now, Mora must prove to the world that she isn’t the enemy, and that hope for the future lies with the Starborns, not Jeremiah. To do that, she must find out the truth behind the origins of the dreaded greyskins that roam the Earth, attacking villages relentlessly.

But more than that, she must protect her family. The Starborns attempt to set up a base at her home, Springhill, but it only brings more turmoil. With a mentor channeling her dreams of the past, and two rival brothers fighting for her love, Mora learns of a new enemy that threatens to bring them down before the revolution can even begin.

Ever since I read Jason’s first book The Deliverer, I have been hooked on his writing. He really pulls you and makes you believe in his characters. The Starborn Saga is not one I would probably have picked up since it is set in the middle of a Zombie apocalypse, but Jason wrote it, so I had to read it. This is book 2 in the series, and I am off to buy book 3 just as soon as I finish writing this.
Besides being a Zombie Apocalypse, this book also explores one mans lust for power and how he’ll do anything to get it, including sacrificing lives. I felt reminded of the need for compassion in all aspects of our lives, and especially to those we may find “strange” or different from us – because who knows what small difference we could make in someones life, to better it. We are all human, and we should treat each other as such.
Rating: 5 stars – I loved It!!
Content: Clean language and clean Romance. This is a Zombie Apocalypse though, so there is some blood and guts.
