Chasers - Review

Chasers (Alone #1) by James Phelan

Book Blurb
Four Teenagers.
One Destroyed City.
Thousands of
Infected Predators. 

Jesse is on a UN Youth Ambassadors camp in New York when his subway carriage is rocked by an explosion. Jesse and his three friends, Dave, Mini and Anna, crawl out from the wreckage to discover a city in chaos.

Streets are deserted. Buildings are in ruins. Worse, the only other survivors seem to be infected with a virus that turns them into horrifying predators... 

Outnumbered. No sign of life. Just them. And you... ALONE.

My Review
I received this book from NetGalley for a honest review. Jesse and his friends, Dave Anna and Mini escape a subway car accident that leaves everyone else dead. When they get to the top side they find New York City a whole new place. Sky scrapers are falling and what people they see seem to be crazy for something to drink. They find a place to stay while they try to figure out what has happened and what is going on. Jesse knows he needs to leave but there is danger every where.

This is a little different from what I expected. You never really find out what happened to cause the change or really for sure what was going on. You mainly get to see what Jesse and his friends go through living in their hiding place. While this does get you to see more into Jesse head it also leaves you wanting to know what is going on. It does have a surprise or two that in a way I kinda guess before hand. It is very well written and nothing against the author on that. I just wanted to know more like what happened, why are the people left always thirsty and many more questions. This is the first book in the series and I will read the next one just to see if things get answered or not.
