"Joanna Fields: The Culling"


Loved it! 😍

There is a lot to deal with even 30 years after the apocalypse. Can Joanna and her friends survive until they make it to safety?

It’s been 30 years since the apocalypse and friends Joanna, Ari, and Jeremiah are in their late teens, so they know no other way of life. They are nomadic survivors traveling with a large group who are now on their way to Heaven-Blessed, a community where they can stay. Before they make it to Heaven-Blessed, Ari is kidnapped and taken to Red Valley where the annual Culling occurs when hundreds of undead are killed. Even though Ari is the badass of the group, Joanna and Jeremiah decide they have to save her.

For the first time, Joanna and Jeremiah are on their own when they leave the caravan. Luckily, they aren’t alone for long and have help or they’d never make it. Unfortunately, they’re discovered and end up in Red Valley as well. As I expected, Ari is not happy to see them because she could take care of herself, but now she has them to worry about.

The three main characters are well-developed, and I enjoyed how Joanna and Jeremiah grew in such a short amount of time. It was survive or die for the two of them and they not only survived but thrived. I also liked that they were far from perfect and even a little weird sometimes. There are quite a few other characters, and a list of characters at the beginning of the book would be helpful.

Although there are a lot of post-apocalyptic books out there, this one has its own little twists. Yes, there are undead, but there are also people who were bitten but didn’t die or turn.

This is a quick read that has a lot of excitement, some humor, and even a touch of romance. I enjoyed Joanna Fields: The Culling, and I’m hoping to read the next book, Joanna Fields: Heaven-Blessed, soon. I have to find out what happens next!

I love to read and decided a while back to review the books I read, I started Bound 4 Escape in 2013. I sell books online, and I proofread books for indie authors at a low price. My goal as a proofreader is not to make money but to help indie authors.
