All The Dead Arising

Title:All The Dead Arising
Author:Jamie Campbell
Publisher: Self Published
Series: Never Alone
Pages: 43
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal
Rating: 3* Stars

Book Description:Please note: This is a novella. Shorter fiction is a fun and quick read, not a full length novel.

One year ago the Event swept through the world and wiped out the entire adult population. Now all the children are alone and fending for themselves.

Go back to when it all started, the first time Everly Hilton realized her entire world had changed on the night of the Event. How did the children react? How did she cope with seeing all those dead people? How did she protect her sister?

In this exciting prequel to the Never Series, find out the background to Everly’s struggle for sanity in this insane world.

My Thoughts: This story idea intrigued me enough to download it. It is indeed a short read. You are kept swept up in Everly's dramatic tale and you can't help but keep turning the pages to see what happens. Does she help the dead? What has life become or will become? Why did all the adults die? Where did her sister go? You left hanging though at the end of the novella and must read on in book 2, sadly I will not be reading on. While this was an enjoyable and somewhat mysterious story I was not in the grips of the tale enough to care to move forward. I was not left dying to know what happens next.
