It needs answers and a second book.

The end of world was mostly Zombies. In this book we aren't sure why totally, but that some generations are growing up in a world that has always had Zombies. Our main characters are living in a tiny town, safe behind fences and relatively self-sustaining. Nothing is utopia, not even in a protected town. The Kin twins were young when it all went down. Now Kinsley is watching things change. There is word from a traveling caravan that things might not be as they seem. That includes some strange changes, like glowing zombies.
I liked this book over all, but I was very frustrated with a few things. Many of the issues weren't revolved, and many of my questions weren't answered. This was very aggravating to me. Why the 17? How the 17? Was there a number on Timmy? If so, what was it? Where did the substance come from? Those are just a few of the questions that weren't answered. I didn't mind the headed out to the unknown to transition to the next book in the series. I do mind the many unanswered parts. It made the book be so much less than it could have been.
It was interesting. The characters felt realistic enough. The only long drawn out part was The Torchette's performance that drug out, but that was ok. I can only hope the author will answer our missing questions in the second book. If so, then hopefully it will be out soon and they can be read at the same time. That would cause less irritation.
I received this book for free. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
