The post-apocalyptic drama of the Envy Chronicles continues in this third installment, featuring Quent & Zoe. Quent is on a mission to find his father, who was one of the men responsible for the near-destruction of the Earth. Quent and four other men are living 50 years in the future. They had been trapped in some AZ caves in 2010 when the “Change” happened and spent five decades in stasis. When they emerged from the caves, they had not aged at all, but each of the men had developed a special ability. Quent’s skill is pyschometry, the ability to be able to see the history of an object by touching it.
Zoe is on a mission of her own: to kill the bounty hunter responsible for the death of her family –and to take down as many zombies as possible while she does it. She’s lived a solitary existence for 10 years, but Quent brings her humanity back to life. The pair teams up as their goals converge. And while the physical part of their relationship sparked from the beginning, the emotional connection was the payoff in this book.
While their romance progresses, we learn more about what led to the “Change.” And we get a better look some of the peripheral characters… here’s hoping for an Ian/Remy story in the future. Overall, I enjoyed this one… maybe not quite as much as Simon’s story, but definitely worth the read. 4 stars.
