ARV-3 : Review

ARV-3 (The after life saga #1)
by Cameo Renae

The beginning of the end. The Apocalypse.

A nuclear fallout wiped out every living thing on the planet, except for a few thousand of us who took shelter in underground bunkers across the globe. Now, after thirteen long years, we were finally able to return to the topside to begin to rebuild.

We thought we were alone. We were never more wrong.

Before the fallout, scientists had worked on creating an anti-radiation vaccine (ARV). The first two attempts failed, but despite the incomplete tests and results, the government approved and distributed the third serum to the masses in an effort to aid those who had no shelter.

It worked, keeping those who remained on the topside alive, but it also altered and mutated them. This new and infectious threat had completely outnumbered us. Now, we not only had to rebuild our planet. We would have to fight for it.

My name is Abigail Park. I’m seventeen, and this is my story.
My Review
A nuclear fallout changed the way of the world. A few thousand took to underground bunkers to survive. They stayed there for thirteen years then when it was safe they decided to return to the surface. However they aren't the only survivors. Scientist gave a anti radiation vaccine to people without testing it and having the first two tries fail. It mutated those that took it and now they are making it hard for the survivors to rebuild. Abigail is one of the lucky survivors and after thirteen years she finds her self in a whole new world. She isn't alone but she has more to face than just the mutants. Some people have different plans for the human survivors.
Abi grew up underground with other survivors. She has most of her family with her along with others. She learned to shoot how to stay in shape and how to survive. She even grew up with a boy who she likes more than friends. They never acted on it in the bunker but now that they get to the surface they no they love each other. Abi is tough and she doesn't like to leave anyone behind. Finn loves Abi but he at times seemed clueless. He doesn't realize how teen girls can be till he gets around several but he never was around many so I have to give him a break on that. Now for my favorite character or charters. The Arvies. They are what survived on the outside. You might think them somewhat like a zombie but they are more like a mutant. They are so awesome and I know that is bad to say about something that is bad but I enjoyed every scene they were in.
I love dystopian books and liked this one. It was really close to getting five stars from me. The Arvies where so amazing in the fact that they hate normal people and really think. The do all kinds of stuff to destroy survivors. They can communicate with each other and have so much going on. I like Abi and Finn and the other characters I met in this book. The only thing I didn't like was the drama that went on when Abi and the others got to the government bunker. It just seemed out of place and while I get they are teens you would think in this type of situation they wouldn't care about the petty stuff. However Abi really steps up and is more than willing to go into danger to save those she loves. If you like Apocalyptic/Dystopian books I would recommend his one and I look forward to more of them.
