Wowing this Wednesday with the very talented mother and son writing team, Wendy and Charles Siefken who wrote the awesome book, Kai's Journey.

“Dragons are thought to be a left over from the time of dinosaurs. What if they weren’t, what if they came to earth from another planet? What if they were intelligent and able to communicate with us? Find out how this story has a different twist to the old legend of dragons!” 
My review
For seven years Kai carried the weight of the world on his shoulders.
Under the most unconventional circumstances, Kai and Clover meet. There was an instant chemistry between the two. Somehow Kai knew more about Clover than she could have imagined.

Even though the town was taken over by zombie's there were people that were able to continue living and enjoying what they had left of their lives. When the zombies took over many people perished but a surprising amount of people survived. They had not stopped living. They just found a way to adjust even though they had to live in a cave with no windows.

This story is one of survival but also zest for life. Still finding happiness through the most difficult of times. It reminds me to appreciate what I have and to be grateful.

Most stories about zombies and other creatures are not usually as touching as this. There is a love story in this book that is so sweet. I was really swept up in the moment and enjoyed the suspenseful ride that this unusual story took me on.

"Kai turned to see the most beautiful girl standing before him; she looked pretty close to his age, and fifteen or sixteen years old and had beautiful white hair that flowed down her back. Her blue eyes glowed like sapphires in the firelight. The life he saw in her face took her breath away. For so long now people had a dead look on their faces. They had lost all hope and seemed to be just trying to survive one more day. This girl radiated life and had a sparkle in her eyes."

Synopsis

After his father accidentally releases a killer virus into the world, Kai is left alone to battle the creatures the virus created. While fighting for his existence in the barren post-apocalyptic world, Kai runs into an unlikely ally in a young woman named Clover.

Fueled by a flicker of hope, the two teenagers join forces with a rag-tag band of survivors in a heroic journey. Can the human race endure?
