Review & Giveaway - Recruitz by Karice Bolton

Scientists are the new rock stars. The infection has been contained for several months, and the world is celebrating. But humans are still dying. Rebekah Taylor has seen it firsthand. Her husband was killed right in front of her by the very creatures that humans were told they no longer had to fear.

Rebekah is determined to find out who is responsible for the death of her husband and the obvious cover-up. Fueled with revenge, she begins to find answers that lead to one frightening conclusion. The apocalypse might be over, but the battles are just beginning.

RecruitZ (Afterworld, #1)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was my first time reading a book by Karice Bolton and only my second time diving into the world of Zombies. I'm not going to lie, Vamps, Weres & Shapeshifters are more my thing but I'm willing to give all books a fair shot. And I'm glad I did! The synopsis appealed to me and I couldn't wait to get started. I'm happy to report that I really enjoyed Ms. Bolton's writing style and the intense story line. I'm always intrigued by conspiracy theories, I just love all the secrets and mystery surrounding them, and uncovering them is even more fun!

In Recruitz we're introduced to Rebekah, whose husband is killed right before her eyes by Zombies who are supposedly no longer a threat. Something is definitely wrong here. Especially when said Zombies have absolutely no interest in her, only her husband Gavin. And then they just all collectively flee the scene into an unmarked black van? That can't be right, can it? Zombies don't follow orders and they certainly don't single out just one person. Let the mystery and intrigue begin! Rebekah is determined to uncover what exactly is going on despite how dangerous it might be. And as always, when you get to close to exposing secrets somebody always tries to stop you.

Ms. Bolton takes you on one wild ride as Rebekah and her partner in crime Preston, who also lost his sister to the same type of organized zombie attack, attempt to get to the bottom of TRAC (Tactical Reinforcement and Capture), a private security company run by Marcus Lordan, a.k.a the bad guy. This is an absolute page turner that will keep you on the edge of your seat. You'll be hooked from the very first page and won't be able to put it down until the very end. There is never a dull moment as Rebekah realizes nothing is what it seems and more secrets are discovered. I would definitely recommend this book and look forward to reading the next installment!
