The Other Life
By: Susanne Winnacker
Release Date: February 2012

Synopsis (from Sherry and her family have lived sealed in a bunker in the garden since things went wrong up above. Her grandfather has been in the freezer for the last three months, her parents are at each other’s throats and two minutes ago they ran out of food.

Sherry and her father leave the safety of the bunker and find a devastated and empty LA, smashed to pieces by bombs and haunted by ‘Weepers’ - rabid humans infected with a weaponized rabies virus.

While searching for food in a supermarket, Sherry’s father disappears and Sherry is saved by Joshua, a boy-hunter. He takes her to Safe-haven, a tumble-down vineyard in the hills outside LA, where a handful of other survivors are picking up the pieces of their ‘other lives’. As she falls in love for the first time, Sherry must save her father, stay alive and keep Joshua safe when his desire for vengeance threatens them all.

Why I can't wait:

First, I love the cover. The butterfly looks like it is dripping blood. Second, I like female main characters and Sherry looks like a strong female character. The part of the synopsis that really drew me to this book was that it takes place in a distopian society. LA has been blown up and people have to survive. And who doesn't like a little flesh eating zombie?? I will be waiting to pick this one up!!

If you can't wait, try this one:


  1. I really enjoy dystopians, and I'm glad to see some true post-apocalypse type stuff instead of all the government run amuck that's been popular as of late. I do love the cover too - at first it looks very feminine and "girly" but when you really look at it, it's truly dark and creepy.
