Wisteria lives in one of the few safe havens left. She is training as a tracker, which involves shooting those infected with the Nero disease: something her people call 'curing'. The disease is caught by someone who already has the disease biting you, and then you become one of them; a flesher.
Then enters Bach, one of the 'Family' who stumbles against Wisteria as she is fighting off the fleshers that are trying to eat/kill her. Bach is generally disgusted by humans, or 'Terrans' as they are known by his kind but there is something familiar about Wisteria, like he has met her before but cannot remember...
It was an interesting story, with plenty of action and gruesome scenes, which is not great when I am reading whilst having my brekky :s
Wisteria's mum was a bit too cold...she continuously lied to Wisteria, and didn't seem the slightest bit sorry about it. I understand she did it to protect her, but encouraging her daughter in a dangerous way of living, and not even giving her the real reasons seems a bit too cruel for me.
I am not quite sure whether I like Bach or not. At times he would do something heroic, but at other times he seemed too self-absorbed for my liking, although Wisteria brought out some very positive changes in him.
Garfield (what a name!) was a cute character, and surprisingly loyal too. I feel he will have a larger part to play in the next Wisteria books, maybe even fall for Wisteria although I wonder how Bach would take that. Yikes!Overall a good read though it could have done with a little more humour....
