Blurb: An aggressive super-flu pandemic wipes out a majority of the population over the course of one Christmas holiday—and brings Tobin and Kyle together. For almost a year, they’ve been trekking across the country from Colorado toward a sanctuary in upstate New York. Kyle’s survival skills have kept them alive, and Tobin wants to repay the man he loves with a very special gift of his own making. He sneaks off in search of the last few pieces… only to get himself and Kyle kidnapped by a desperate stranger. With their journey to New York on hold—possibly indefinitely—they’ll need to accept that home isn’t always defined by a place as much as the person you’re with.

Review: Well one never expects to wake up on Christmas and find almost everyone dead from a very aggressive super flu. Tobin and Kyle made it. Kyle had in fact saved Tobin’s life one night, and they have been together ever since. They decided to go to New York where a sanctuary is set up. To bad they hadn’t expected to get kidnapped. They soon realize home is where your loved one is.

When I first read the blurb for this I wasn’t really to sure how it was going to turn out. Especially for the Christmas season. I admit I was kind of expecting zombies. It is two young men trying to survive. It turned out to be a blast to read and I really enjoyed it. I loved how their kidnapping turned out. It would seem the kidnapper was just about as crazy as they were. It was a sweet story that intrigued me quite a bit.

I had a blast reading it and can guarantee that you will too.
