The Last Orphans

by N.W. Harris (Author)

The last orphanes

 

One horrifying day will change the life of sixteen-year-old Shane Tucker and every other kid in the world. In a span of mere hours, the entire adult population is decimated, leaving their children behind to fend for themselves and deal with the horrific aftermath of the freak occurrence. As one of the newly made elders in his small town, Shane finds himself taking on the role of caretaker for a large group of juvenile survivors. One who just happens to be Kelly Douglas—an out-of-his-league classmate—who, on any other day, would have never given Shane a second glance. Together, they begin their quest to find out why all of the adults were slaughtered. What they find is even more horrifying than anything they could have expected—the annihilation of the adults was only the beginning. Shane and his friends are not the unlucky survivors left to inherit this new, messed-up planet. No, they are its next victims. There is an unknown power out there, and it won’t stop until every person in the world is dead. A spine-tingling adventure that will have you gasping for breath all the way until the last page, The Last Orphans is the first book in an all-new apocalyptic series. The book develops from one loss or disaster to the next in suspense that left me biting my nails. N. W. Harris is not afraid tackle conflict, injury, death, and a little romance.

This book is an apocalyptic teen and young adult suspense story, and is well written, evenly balanced, and paced. I was also happy to find out that it is part of a series and cannot wait to read the next book.
