Eve Brenner is a nineteen-year-old anthropology student who convinces her teacher, Dr. August, to let her and her two best friends tag along on an important dig at a tomb-site in Egypt. Eve is so determined to find something important on this dig that she wanders into an unsafe part of the tomb by herself. She is attacked by something in the tomb and badly wounded. After Eve recovers from the attack, she is not the same. She is able to rapidly heal, food won’t stay down and she has periods of lost memory. Concerned for Eve, Cam and Alex take her to see Dr. August to find out what she may have contracted in the ancient plagued city in Egypt; the answer isn’t quite what they expect. Now, Eve and her friends try to deal with her new abilities on top of college and family drama with Cam’s abusive father.

This was not what I was expecting in a zombie book at all, but I really enjoyed the different combination of an ancient Egyptian curse mixed with zombie lore. It made the book unexpected and had the possibility of many different outcomes and not just the same old zombie apocalypse setting. Eve was a great character, at nineteen she is very smart, but does not have her life figured out yet. Her friends Alex and Cam are unconditionally supportive and are like family to her, which makes Eve’s deeds much easier to deal with. The narrative switches between Eve, Alex and Cam which creates a fast-paced read. Cam's character stole the moment many times and the dynamic with her father made a very interesting story. I'm interested to see what else Eve can figure out about herself and her abilities, all of the testing and the different powers or abilities that each zombie had was very intriguing. I also want to see where Eve and Cam's relationship will go. I was really impressed with Eve's decisions at the end, it showed how she had grown and matured, even if she was really dead. Overall, a unique new-adult/ zombie read, I'll definitely be checking out the next book.
