After a demon apocalypse kills their parents and everyone they know, 17-year old Abby Phillips, her brother, Carter, and friend, Max flee their home to travel through what has become the wastelands of America. When radio transmissions of a resistance offering shelter and safety cease, Abby is tempted to give up. Struggling to overcome life-threatening obstacles in their dangerous journey, Abby and her companions quickly discover there are much worse things lurking in the dark than they could have ever imagined. Excerpt from Megan’s website.
Thank you Megan sending me a copy of your novel for review. I loved Released! I finished the book within 5-6 hours, the quickest I have ever a novel. Released kept me at the edge of my seat for the entire book. Released was also a quick read at only 260 pages of awesomeness.
The way that Megan described the scenery and the events the group had to get over while travelling reminded me of Zombieland which made it super easy for me to visualize post-apocalypse America. I loved the characters they were easy to relate to and funny. Taya is my favourite character in the series. She is funny and witty. There were many times were I was on the edge of my seat and Taya would say something and I would burst out laughing. She totally took the edge off some scenes. I also knew if I didn’t finish the book before I went to bed that I would totally be having nightmares of demon hounds and birds attacking me.
I can’t wait to read the Chaos the next book in the series and I sooo want more of this story.
