Carly Daniels knows what it is to suffer loss. She knows what it is to sacrifice. In the two years since a pandemic virus—known only as the Infection—decimated humanity, she’s made choices she never could have imagined. She’s condoned violence in the name of peace and done the unthinkable in the name of mercy. But with Justin at her side, she’s also learned there’s nothing she can’t face and nothing she wouldn’t do to protect those she loves.

But now another threat has arrived in the form of a uniformed man driving an army truck, claiming to represent the remnant of the United States military. Someone has set their sights on their community . . . and on Justin. The struggle to defend their little homeland is far from over, and the visitors may have brought more danger with them than just their weapons.

The shadows are closing in. Carly has to find out whether she has the strength to stand on her own when all of her support has fallen away. What remains when the shadows have gone?


This was an extremely easy book to follow through. You really couldn't even tell it was book 3 in a series. I didn't feel lost at all while reading it.

The story started out very strong. I really thought as I started reading this was going to be a 5 star knock out. But something happened about 60% into it and it started to trail off.

I'm not sure what it was exactly but something started to diminish, and I think it was that things started to feel rushed.

I get that the world has pretty much come to a halt and life sucks and now Carly has to help rebuild the civilization with Justin. But that doesn't mean you have to speed through everything. And then with the predictable ending, when so much hadn't been predictable, was disappointing.

All that being said I still really enjoyed the story. I liked the characters, I liked the personalities of everyone. I would deff read another book by Ms. Bryan, and I am curious as to what the first two books of this series were about.

So since I wouldn't mind going back to the beginning and reading the start of this series, even though I know the ending, I'm giving this a 4 star. Because any book that makes me want to go back and start over, even with knowing the ending means something there was worth while and I gotta show it respect.
