Review: WHITE HORSE by Alex Adams


I have to tell you that this novel pulled me in from page one and held me to the very last page.  Adams writes a story of a post apocalyptic time.  I could not help but wonder the whole time I was reading what I would do if I woke up one day and had to face what Zoe, the main character, had to face.  She is powerful and her experiences are graphic, unsettling and simply irresistible.  This page turning novel takes you not only on a journey of survival, but a journey of the human condition when faced with adversity at its highest level.  This is a novel that will be emotional to read.  You will experience the fear, hopelessness and anguish that Zoe feels.  I am so excited that this engrossing novel is part of a trilogy and that I have two more books to look forward to.  I rate it 4.5 stars.

I do want to warn my readers that it is a graphic novel containing some violent physical and sexual situations and other situations that may be unsettling to some readers.  It has been advertised as the Hunger Games for adults and I must agree with that statement.  When you sit down to read this novel to prepared to read for a while, this novel will suck you in!

Book Description
April 17, 2012
The world has ended, but her journey has just begun.
Thirty-year-old Zoe leads an ordinary life until the end of the world arrives. She is cleaning cages and floors at Pope Pharmaceuticals when the president of the United States announces that human beings are no longer a viable species. When Zoe realizes that everyone she loves is disappearing, she starts running. Scared and alone in a shockingly changed world, she embarks on a remarkable journey of survival and redemption. Along the way, Zoe comes to see that humans are defined not by their genetic code, but rather by their actions and choices. White Horse offers hope for a broken world, where love can lead to the most unexpected places.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Alex Adams was born in New Zealand, raised in Greece and Australia, and currently lives in Oregon–which is a whole lot like New Zealand, minus those freaky-looking wetas. Her debut novel, White Horse (Emily Bestler Books/Atria) hits shelves April 17, 2012. Her fingers are crossed that the world won’t end before then.
