Jason D. Morrow’s Anywhere but Here is a fast, compelling read, especially if you don’t immediately dislike zombies. Well-timed flashbacks give a picture of how one teenager perceives the world falling apart. Characters who come to her aid are quickly made real through the language of remembered feelings, and there’s an immediate pain conveyed through scenes of cruel loss. But this isn’t just a run-away-from-the-zombies tale. These people really do have hope, but struggle to know how much faith to place in human institutions, how much trust to place in law, and how to plan for an uncertain tomorrow.

Into this mix, add the curious powers of characters who aren’t quite superhuman, just as the grayskins may not be entirely subhuman. Does seeing the future mean it’s set in stone? Is hearing (even super-hearing) the same as understanding? And what secret are leaders and hunters hiding?

The dialog’s convincing, the voice is natural, the tale has a powerful immediacy, and the ending, while clearly the start of something more, comes in a well-chosen place, with one mystery solved in the defining of the next. I would certainly read more.

Disclosure: It was free, and I really enjoyed the earlier series.

Anywhere But Here
Jason D. Morrow

Book one of the Starborn Ascension series. A post-apocalyptic tale about survival after nuclear war. It includes violence, supernatural powers, zombies, love.

Good story. I didn't understand Waverly's obsessive aversion to guns considering the violent world she lived in.

I'm normally not big on zombies but they seem to fit in here.

I recommend this.

I read all three of the books in this series but can only review this one (because it's free) on Smashwords because, unfortunately, I did not purchase them here. I rate all three of them the same.
