*I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
I thought this was well written and captivating. The characters were engaging, and I really liked seeing the relationships. There were a few things that felt just a little too convenient for my taste, but overall I really loved this zombie story wrapped up in a conspiracy theory, and recommend it for pretty much everyone.
For me it falls between 3 and 4 stars. As its closer to 4, that's what I'll go with.
