The Day I Died

Written by:Aya Knight

Just reading the prologue intrigued me enough to want to review this book and the story within.

The book really drew me in from start to finish. It is a new take on the zombie genre and it was written in a very well thought out manner. In the book there is no "chapter" per say, its Day and parts, so like Day 1 Part 1, Day 1 Part 2, etc which shows you the progression of each day and what Oshin goes through during those days. There are twists and turns in the book, some you might guess at and be right some you might be wrong, and some you might not be able to guess at, at all. I loved the book from start to finish. It didn't linger in place, things weren't overly written and has a nice pace that you can follow.

This is the first book from Aya Knight that I have ever read but I look forward to reading more.

This book follows Oshin Fletcher's life. Who she had a crush on. Who her mother was and her best friend. How she died, and more. It shows a whole brand new take on what people read in zombie books and watch in movies. She is taught one thing about zombies and that might not hold true for all of the zombies out there. She was also taught that there was no humans outside of her city, but will she learn that was a lie also? What all she discovers as her death progress might shock and astound you.

I received a free copy of this e-book free and am giving it an honest review, of my thoughts.


Book Description:

She had to die, to find the truth.

Oshin Fletcher lives by three rules: obey authority, don’t draw unnecessary attention to yourself, and above all else, never leave the city walls.

Some say that rules are meant to be broken. For Oshin, her world shattered on the day she was betrayed. A secret meeting leads her beyond the safety of her city. Lured by the ignorance that comes with being lonely and hopeful, Oshin was about to discover just how severe consequences could be. Lost and alone, she waited; no one came. But they did. The infected, the decaying, the undead.

Oshin wakes to find herself in an abandoned house, deep within the forest. Her body was changing, her desire to feed, uncontrollable. She was a marionette—her hunger, the puppeteer. She pivots on a line between life and death. They say the undead are mindless, but Oshin was very much aware. She sets out in an unknown world where the worst evils aren’t the undead, but humanity itself. With only days before the effects of the disease take hold and decay sets in, Oshin must race to find a way back home for a cure. She soon discovers that home is not everything she thought it to be. Dark secrets have been in play since the moment she was born.
