*Adult Book Review*
Paperback, 327 pages
Published June 6th 2011 by Berkley Trade
First in a stunning new post-apocalyptic paranormal romance trilogy.
Growing up with an unstable, often absent father who preached about the end of the world, Jenna never thought in her wildest nightmares that his predictions would come true. Or that he would have a plan in place to save her-one that includes the strong, stoic man who kidnaps and takes her to a remote cabin in the Pacific Northwest.
The mysterious ex-Marine named Mason owes a life-debt to Jenna's father. Skilled and steadfast, he's ready for the prophesied Change, but Jenna proves tough to convince. Until the power grid collapses and mutant dogs attack-vicious things that reek of nature gone wrong.
When five strangers appear, desperate to escape the bloodthirsty packs, Jenna defies her protector and rescues them. As technology fails and the old world falls away, Jenna changes too, forever altered by supernatural forces. To fight for their future, she and Mason must learn to trust their instinctive passion-a flame that will see them through the bitter winter, the endless nights, and the violence of a new Dark Age.

OMG! That was Awesome!! Squeee Ok OK I will try and cease fangirling all over this review now.
When I started this I was really not expecting what was inside. Amazing writing, Excellent story and very very Awesome characters! Something is changing the world as we know it and everyone is effected. This story will draw you in and have you in suspense in the worst kind of way.
The characters... Jenna first off is just a girl who has lost everyone and is doing well on her own, until she is kidnapped and taken away from her home and friends. This is what starts it all! She is brave and has a great head on her shoulders. You will get to know her better and feel for her then respect and admire the crap right out of her!
umm Mason... Let me get this out... OMG he is HOTNESS!! ok I feel better. Utterly handsome, well defined, ex-military man and you will not be able to get enough of him... guaranteed! He is to get Jenna and keep her safe, he is not expecting to feel for her at all. This man will have you swooning then wanting to smack some sense into him...then back with the swooning.
I totally enjoyed all the other characters as well, especially Tru and Penny. They all have depth to them and are not just "filler" people. GET THIS!! It is a great start to a trilogy!!
