The Red Plague Trilogy #1
by Anna Abner
Publisher: Mild Red Books
Publication Date: February 26, 2014
The red plague has devastated the human race, turning billions of people into zombies with red eyes and an insatiable hunger for human flesh.
The virus sweeps through the population so quickly a possible cure is left to rot. Seventeen-year-old Maya Solomon may be the only survivor who knows where it is. But to reach the lab in Raleigh, North Carolina she will have to outrun the infected boy tracking her every step and cross into a city swarming with monsters.

A buzzing circular saw woke me five minutes before my alarm was supposed to go off.
"Please wake up and say it again."
The characters in Elixir were a very dynamic bunch. Ben was my favorite one, because I was so intrigued by him. I'm dying to know what happens to him during the rest of this series! Maya is a great main character. I very much enjoyed following her journey and learning about her life and the world around her. Hunny did get annoying, though. At first, I thought she'd be endearing but she quickly got on my nerves.
The detail in this book is amazing. I've been all over North Carolina except the Raleigh-Durham area, but I still felt like I was there. I was never left wondering how, and what, things were happening because Anna Abner did an excellent job at keeping the reader informed and invested.
If you're a fan of zombies books, I would recommend Elixir to you in a heartbeat. Fans of Tracey Ward and her kick-ass heroines will enjoy this quick and inviting read, too!
