   "I might have just procrastinated myself to death." 
  In an infected world, a young woman is on the run, a boy's life is in jeopardy and two brothers from the forest are their key to survival. Conflict surrounds them as they struggle to come to terms with this new world and each other, as well as their own haunted pasts.

Growing up in a loving, comfortable home, Sky is totally unprepared for what is about to hit the world. High heels, fingernails, and lattes seem to be her big concern other than her work. At work, she is all heart, helping children of abused homes, like Jesse, to turn their lives around. Trying to make a difference in the world and watching the world end are two different things, and while Skye excitedly takes on the first, she refuses to see the end of the world for what it is. Now she is on the run, from the strong as well as the Infected.

Dylan is as opposite to Skye as can be. He and his brother, Wade, are more ready for the devastation then they should be. Raised in an unstable, abusive home, the men have skills that will keep them alive during the mass annihilation.

When the four meet, they group for survival. Things that were taken for granted are now a struggle for Skye, and she must deal with an entirely new way of living.  Old torment and new trama cause them anguish, and all the while, they must escape the never-ending Infected.

                              Powerful introduction to the book! It was strangely scary. I like the idea, I can picture it as a movie in my head
 #bcbg The introduction is quite compelling. It reads like quotations from the sites you used, but I think that fits perfectly with the sci fi genre. That said, the straightforward voice of the narration is completely fitting. I like that you're planting ideas in the reader's head from start.

I like this premise. It's interesting - and very scary - to think about what would happen in a situation like this...

                              I like your introduction. First, because you're talking to the reader, and I think it's a good way to get into the story more easily. Secondly, because even though there are many virus stories, your writing style makes it original.  You also used real info, which I find very interesting.
