A Watty Award Winner, Trailblazer Category 2016

In 1896, dinosaurs started the infection that ended the world.

Carmen has lived her entire life in New York City, a city of opium and invention, of rotting tenements and marble mansions; a divided metropolis built on the backs of the dinosaurs that never died out, kept safe by the rivers surrounding it. 

When a mysterious illness spreads from the deinos to the humans, Carmen must start surviving, trapped on an island that's no longer home, where the dead won't stay buried, and the people are more dangerous than the dinosaurs themselves.

Where were you when it all began?

These illustrations are so beautiful, I'm in love with them.
I first read this book on an old account of mine, back when it was a few hundred reads. Coming back to see how far you've come and all the much-deserved awards it has received is incredible. Well done!

I just shared this with my 16 year old. I think he'll get a kick out of this!

Wow was this book selected by THE makers of The Walking Dead or Robert Kirkman for the comics? Kind of confused since it says "Selected By The Walking Dead Road to Survival"
