After Nick "Nero" Sole is sent on an "Inward Trek" with a bunch of other delinquents, his counselors start attacking each other - much like a monster movie come to life.
They've seen the movies; all they have to do is follow the rules - as long as they survive. Now, with a horde of "Infects" right on their heels, the delinquents must manage to find a way out. This seems a simple enough task, but not when the horde is continuously multiplying.
Not only that, Nick is desperately trying to find Petal, the girl of his dreams. The further and further he gets from the Infects, the more hopeless things become; they keep multiplying and his chances of survival begin to diminish.
This was a very fast-paced read. Yet highly enthralling. It wasn't just the typical gore and bloodfest that interested me - though it did help - it was the very realistic idea of how the virus of the "Infects" came to be. Not only that, but the characters also seemed very realistic; especially since they each had very individual personalities. But, most of all, I loved the ending. It was definitely suspenseful and kept me 'on my toes' the entire time; a twist ending.
Highly recommended for zombie/conspiracy/horror lovers.
