Book Description

Sixteen year old Wisteria Kuti has two options—track the infected around the Isle of Smythe or leave the only known safe haven and face a world infested with flesh eating biters. But even with well-armed trackers, things go wrong and Wisteria ends up alone facing certain death, until she is rescued by the mysterious Bach. Uninfected, Bach is able to survive among the hordes of living dead.

Eighteen year old Bach, from a race known as The Family, has no interest in human affairs. He was sent here to complete his Great Walk and return home as a man—as a Sen Son. The Family regard humans as Dirt People, but Bach is drawn to this Terran girl, whom he has never seen before, but somehow knows.

Hunted by flesh eaters, cannibals, and the mysterious blood thirsty group called Red Phoenix, Wisteria and Bach make their way back to the Isle of Smythe, a community built on secrets and lies.

What a great start to the Wisteria series!! I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! Bisi Leyton has written a fabulous novel, showing us what life would be like if a plague hit the earth and if you were bitten you turned into a flesh eating biter. There are Supernatural people who can cross into our world and the disease has no effect on them. Those of the unaffected people who remain are all in colonies so that the ‘biters’ can’t get in. If you have seen the movie ‘I Am Legend,’ this could be the sequel to that, but with a few Supernatural’s thrown in!!

Wisteria is a 16 year old girl who lives in one of the colonies and works as a tracker. She doesn’t have any real friends on the island so she spends most of her time by herself if she isn’t working. She is a quiet girl, but if she is confronted by any of the other teenagers she doesn’t hold back and stands up for herself.

Two of the unaffected girls go missing when she is out patrolling with her Mother and Andrew. They locate the two girls and Wisteria goes in to get them alone. Soon they are surrounded by the biters and are on the run. In swoops Bach to save Wisteria, but instead of just returning her to the colony, he takes her back to his home.

Bach is a self-assured person. He sees himself as a higher being than the Terrans/Humans- they are more like pests for him. But for some reason he rescues Wisteria. There is something about her that he is drawn to and it is confusing for him. He wants to keep her close until he finds out more about her. He is very attractive, has the perfect body and supernatural powers, now who doesn’t want a guy like that??

I love the buildup of this story, getting to know the characters and watching their connection grow. I had no idea which way the story was headed and I was kept in suspense right up to the very end! It has plenty of action and a fascinating plot and I can’t wait to see what Bisi Leyton has for us next!!
