Summary from Goodreads:
Two-years post end-of-the-world, all Jetilyn Fournier wants to do is learn to navigate a world that is no longer her own. Surviving zombies feels easy, though, compared to dealing with her rocky relationship with her best friend, the death of her mother, her sister’s faux happiness, and her father’s sudden desire to speak, after decades of silence. Saving herself is not even something she can fit in at the moment.

Enter Devlin Shea: for all intents and purposes, a mortal enemy. Though she should hate him instantly upon contact, she doesn’t, and before she knows it, Jett has another life to save.

Told in the surreal prose that Allie Burke has come to be known for, Nowhere Train is the first zombie novel of its kind. At two parts hippie and one part magic, it is as deadly as it is beautiful; as dark as it is hopeful, baring the question in mind: who–and what–are Jett and her family really fighting for?

My Review:
WOW...what can I say about Nowhere Train? Well author Allie Burke has drawn me into another wonderful dark story. When I was told that it was tied into another series of her's, the Enchanters, that I loved I knew I wanted to read it.

The story is set in post apocalyptic time of what used to be Malibu, California. There are three groups of people, the Holies (hippie like, who don't speak and are pretty easy going), the Gunners (will and do kill anything in their way) and the Enders (zombies). Jett and her family are Holies who come in contact with Devlin, a mortal enemy. When Devlin's father finds out that he is being friendly with Jett, things turn dark. It seems as though a war is going to start and continue between them.

The author writes a very raw, dark story that is very easy to visualize. I liked seeing references of the characters from the Enchanters series and how they tie into these characters. There is romance, which I always love, suspense and lots of action. Overall a great read. This e-book was provided to me for review. This did not affect my review in any way.
