She was born the day the world ended…
Nurrin has lived her entire life with zombies—trapped behind walls meant to keep them safe. She’s mostly happy there. But when a zombie horde breech the walls of her Haven, she has to trust her brother, Collin, and his best friend to keep her alive.
He just wants his past to die…
Finn O’Malley has given up on voicing warnings that are ignored. No one cares that the zombies are changing. Now all that matters is keeping Collin and Nurrin safe from what’s outside the walls of a Haven. But when Nurrin’s best friend picks up a contact infection, he agrees to get the medicine needed to save his life. Forced together, relying
on each other in a strange Haven, zombies aren’t the most dangerous thing they’re facing.
I have been waiting too long to talk to someone about this book! I had beta read for Ms. Andrews prior to the book’s publishing and of course, I loved it!
I really heart zombie books! When I saw that this was a new adult zombie book, all I could say was “Sign me up!” The book itself reminds me a little of The Forest of Hands & Teeth Trilogy by Carrie Ryan. The characters live in seperate “havens” that are surrounded by fences.
The character building is awesome…..
Nurrin is a pretty cool chick and is not afraid to fight for what she believes in. She is a little bit of a thorn in her brother’s side by the risks she is willing to take with her life but meh, she doesn’t think it’s a a big deal! Collin has always protected his sister and he will continue to do so at any cost. The characters are very strong-willed and are determined to protect one another even if that means putting their own lives on the line.
Let’s talk Finn O’Malley….
Can I get a woop, woop? Finn is hot as in capital H and a double TT! The sexual tension between Nurrin and Finn is enough to make a person combust and I loved every minute of it!!! One minute they seem like they are getting somewhere and the next…poof! They hate each other again? This aspect alone was enough to keep me reading until the end!
If you enjoy zombie reads, then you MUST pick this one up! I literally read the whole thing in one sitting. I could not get enough of it! I enjoyed the characters, the storyline and Finn! La swooooon! I really cannot wait for the next book in the series and I am crossing my fingers that it’s soon!!
I am so lucky that I was able to grab an interview with these two.
They are something else and although it was a little difficult, I am glad I am able to share with all of you;)
Interview with Nurrin and Finn!
Today, I managed to get Nurrin and Finn to sit down and talk to me about The World Without a Future.
Me: Thanks Nurrin–
Nurrin: Don’t call me that. I hate that name.
Finn: *soft laugh*
Me: *clears throat* Ok. So let’s start with something easy. Tell us a little about you from before the apoacalpyse.
Nurrin: Well, since he won’t talk.
Finn: I talk. When it suits me.
Nurrin: I was born the day of Emilie Milan rose. I’m a first. So I don’t have much of a story from before. Finn, I’m sure yours is much more interesting.
Nurrin: *annoyed sigh* just answer the question or we’ll be here all day.
Finn: I came from the East.
Me: um. Okay. So. Moving on. What is the hardest thing about the zombies?
Finn: Being confined. Locked behind walls that aren’t really safe, but people buy the lie. That.
Nurrin: did you just voluntarily answer a question?
Finn: One more smartass remark, little girl…
Me: Can you both focus? For five seconds?
Me: Ok, so let’s talk about this *waves* aggression you’ve got going on.
Nurrin: He’s an asshat. Who, as you can see, refuses to answer the simplest of questions. And I think he might be insane.
Finn: At least I don’t have a death wish.
Me: Nurrin, hush. Finn. What is the deal, here?
Finn: There is no deal. She’s Collin’s little sister—I’ll protect her. That’s all there is.
Me: *stares* You don’t like sharing information do you?
Finn: *stands up* Think we’re done here.
Nurrin: That boy has more secrets than the Order. But he has kept me safe.
Me: so you trust him?
Nurrin: *laughing again* Hell no. But I’ll reserve final judgment for a little while longer.
Well, That went well…LOL!
