My name is Bixby. I'm a survivor. After eight years of fighting the alien invaders and gangs of ravagers that destroyed our world, we thought we had lived through the worst of it. We were so wrong. The invaders have evolved. They've become smarter. Stronger. Deadlier. Creating a human-leech hybrid. There may be a way for us to eradicate this new threat. But that entails a perilous expedition over three hundred miles of infested territory. Three hundred miles of leeches, ravagers, and hybrids, all on the hunt for blood. What could possibly go wrong?

Excellent Follow-Up!

After finishing the first book, I was more than excited to start the second and STRAIN OF DEFIANCE doesn't disappoint.

Bixby remains the coolest and toughest character I know. After destroying the leeches' pods, Bixby is sent on a very important, but very risky mission. They need supplies and the doctors from St. Joseph need to regroup with another set of doctors because they may be the key to finding the cure. Upon their safe passage, Bixby and her group will be trading for much needed medical supplies that they've been running short on. Of course, Luke is quick to go on the mission and makes me fall for him even more. The only probably is that his ex, Robyn, also volunteers to go. With her on board, tensions run high.

The mission starts off rocky when they become surrounded. But when they're saved and taken to a secret farm, things become complicated when they're met with familiar faces. One of them being Bixby's Sam. Even with this new discovery, the mission must go on until it's completed.

I loved this story just as much as the first one and couldn't put it down. I felt bad for Luke at Sam's reappearance, but I will always be TEAM LUKE and am eagerly waiting to see how their story plays out in the next one.


Final verdict: This is an action-packed post-apocalyptic New Adult read with a twist of romance and comedy. Fans of horror and Post-Apocalyptic stories won't be disappointed with this one.
