Review of Inhuman by Kat Falls

Kat Falls

Just look at that cover! I liked it best but the one on Amazon is different. (Posted below). What's your favorite one?


Beauty versus beasts.

In the wake of a devastating biological disaster, the United States east of the Mississippi River has been abandoned. Now called the Feral Zone, a reference to the virus that turned millions of people into bloodthirsty savages, the entire area is off-limits. The punishment for violating the border is death.

Lane McEvoy can't imagine why anyone would risk it. She's grown up in the shadow of the great wall separating east from west, and she's naturally curious about what's on the other side - but she's not that curious. Life in the west is safe, comfortable . . . sterile. Which is just how she likes it.

But Lane gets the shock of her life when she learns that someone close to her has crossed into the Feral Zone. And she has little choice but to follow. Lane travels east, risking life and limb and her very DNA, completely unprepared for what she finds in the ruins of civilization . . . and afraid to learn whether her humanity will prove her greatest strength or a fatal weakness.

My Review of 'Inhuman'

Wow! I completely loved this story! It deserves 10 stars in my opinion. I really didn’t know what to expect from this one besides that it was a dystopian, and had some very intriguing claims. I was pleasantly surprised and am eagerly awaiting the next book in this series and would run out and buy it if it was available today, in a heartbeat.

In the post-apocalyptic world where a virus developed by a huge amusement park type corporation wiped out most of humanity, Lane discovers that her father, Mack, has a lot more to do with the other side of a huge wall erected after the virus spread to keep the ‘ferals’ out. Lane lives on the West side of this wall, which keeps the Ferals and their virus out and keeps the normal humans in. But then, she’s thrust into the East side of the wall. These ferals are mutated humans infected with the Ferae virus that killed most of the population. But what happens when it stops being so lethal and leaves it’s survivors morphed into animals. Mammals mostly. They can walk and talk and do everything a human does, but in the end, the virus still has a very lethal stronghold on them, and they are not to be trusted. Don’t get bit. Survival is key in the East.

Lane encounters some hot, hot comrades in her unplanned adventure into the East: Rafe and Everson, two completely different boys from two different worlds who keep the flow of the action going easily with their competitive banter and sexy innuendos with Lane as they cross the unknown territory of the East in search of a way to save Lane’s father from a death sentence for crossing the wall unauthorized. 

Full of vibrant imagery and savory characters that get under your skin, literally. I was so engrossed in this tale, it was adventurous, fun and different from any other dystopian tales I’d read. Highly recommend it. Now if only book 2 was here already, I want to jump right back into adventure as soon as I possibly can!

I received an ARC of this story via Netgalley from the publisher for an honest review.

 5 Amazing Stars!
