'The New Hunger' by Isaac Marion is a prequel to Warm Bodies. It's a bleak story that shows how the world ended.
In this book, Julie is 12 and is traveling in search of shelter with her mother and father. Their search has brought them to the Canadian border, but they find out that hope can die pretty easy in this world.
Nora is left with her little brother in a world where food is scarce but enemies are not. Her parents are nowhere to be found, so it's up to Nora to keep them safe.
There are a few surprises that you can probably guess, but I won't spoil them for you. I saw the Warm Bodies movie, but never read the book. The movie seemed pretty light, but this book is pretty dark. There are lots of zombie stories out there. Some are better than others. This one wasn't bad. It's probably better to read if you plan on reading Warm Bodies.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Atria Books and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
