Great read! After a bio attack took out plants, trees, livestock, power, etc. we get to experience the "Aftertime". The author does a great job placing you in that damaged world with those struggling to survive. This book has "beaters" which are zombies that plague the cities during the day looking for flesh. The main character is flawed and struggles against her past ghosts while trying to trust others she encounters in her mission to find her young daughter. This was a page turner that I read completely in the same day. Moving on to REBIRTH.
