So, the undead have come. And what's left of a fractured humanity is stuck dealing with them. One one side, we have the Holies - non-violent types - while on the other are the Gunners - pretty sure you can figure that one out. And that's all I'm telling you about the story. Wanna know more? Read it. It's worth it.
Yes, really. And the reason? That, I'll tell you.
Allie has a wonderful way with which she weaves her words like a strange, foul-mouthed love child of Anne Rice and Stephen King. Her prose is uniquely hers and easily pulls you between the pages where it wraps you up in its horrifically sweet words and brightly imagined description that keep from going so overboard you'd rather pluck your eyes out, like other long winded writers out there
Her style is much like the baby bear's porridge; just fucking right.
Her characters are intriguing (especially the mystery surrounding the Enders' origions) and, more importantly, human, despite certain abilities some of them posses.
The book itself is short and sweet and just the beginning a tale sure to become a new apocalyptic classic. So go right now and purchase your own copy (available inpaperback andebook versions) and meet Jetilyn Fournier and her family of survivors.
Trust me, y'all. You'll fucking love it.
Two-years post end-of-the-world, all Jetilyn Fournier wants to do is learn to navigate a world that is no longer her own. Surviving zombies feels easy, though, compared to dealing with her rocky relationship with her best friend, the death of her mother, her sister's faux happiness, and her father's sudden desire to speak, after decades of silence. Saving herself is not even something she can fit in at the moment.
Enter Devlin Shea: for all intents and purposes, a mortal enemy. Though she should hate him instantly upon contact, she doesn't, and before she knows it, Jett has another life to save.
Told in the surreal prose that Allie Burke has come to be known for, Nowhere Train is the first zombie novel of its kind. At two parts hippie and one part magic, it is as deadly as it is beautiful; as dark as it is hopeful, baring the question in mind: who--and what--are Jett and her family really fighting for?
A Bestselling Author, NPO VP, and Psychology Today Blogger from Burbank, California, Allie Burke writes books she can’t find in the bookstore. Having been recognized as writing a “kickass book that defies the genre it’s in”, Allie writes with a prose that has been labeled poetic and ethereal.
Her life is a beautiful disaster, flowered with the harrowing existence of inherited eccentricity, a murderous family history, a faithful literature addiction, and the intricate darkness of true love. These are the enchanting experiences that inspire Allie’s fairytales.
From some coffee shop in Los Angeles, she is working on her next novel.
