Smith takes. Scary bible tale and twists it into an incredible novel that has you flipping pages without fear of papercuts. Kerrigan is a great "anti-maryjane" heroine and I was rooting for her from the start.
I'd call this a serious beach read with some lighthearted snark and hot boy twists.
Here's a little more info:
The world is coming to an end, and "Crazy Kerrigan" has a front-row seat.
Centuries ago, scrolls calling forth the four horsemen of the apocalypse were discovered, sealed until their rightful heirs were born. Now, those scrolls are being opened.
When her small town crumbles during her stay in an institution for troubled teens, eighteen-year-old Kerrigan Monroe is one of the few left standing. She and a handful of other survivors take cover as everything they've ever known is reduced to rubble. When the smooth voice behind a cryptic radio broadcast beckons her to a safe house, she and the others abandon their temporary haven, and embark on a cross-country journey toward refuge.
Upon discovering the identity of the man behind the voice, Kerrigan is smacked with the revelation that he's not the only heir to these scrolls. Now, she must make a choice: join this dark stranger and lead the New World by his side, or fight for what's left of humanity.
Either decision will bring power. Either decision will bring death.
