After Z-Day by Charlotte Donnelly


Rachel leads two lives—the one where she works in a café and gossips with her best friend Lucy, and the one where she’s a fervent animal activist, risking arrest with every new facility she breaks into. There’s something different about this job, though, something that doesn’t quite add up, but when Lucy goes missing, Rachel has more than enough to worry about.

Rachel works with Lucy’s boyfriend, Jake, to try and track Lucy down—but every step brings Rachel closer to that reality where her two lives collide. She can’t anticipate what the consequences will be. Neither can anyone else.

Note: After Z-Day contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

Worth a Read

By Lyn Thorne-Alder, author of Side Quest

Jan 9, 2017: I read this story – what there is of it so far – in one sitting, and found it engrossing, the kind of story that keeps me on the edge of my seat.

I have so many questions, which means I’ll come back to it over and over again, hoping my questions get answers – who is Bishop? What is going on?

This story builds suspense well. I am not always a fan of prologues, but this one got me involved in the story before I’d barely started reading. The world that is built is our own world – and yet not. The surveillance state is entirely believable; the slight deviations from our world make the story that much more creepy.

Although it’s titled After Z-Day and subtitled "zompocalypse," I haven’t encountered any zombies yet. This isn’t a deal-breaker for me, but it does speak to a slow-burn sort of start that is more in my tastes than it might be in others’.

Well-written, intriguing, and with an interesting hook, After Z-Day is worth a read.
