The Weepers: The Other Life

"Sherry has lived with her family in a bunker for more than three years. Her grandfather's body has been in the freezer for the last six months, her parents are at each other's throats and two minutes ago, they ran out of food. Sherry and her father must leave the safety of the bunker. What they find is an empty Los Angeles, destroyed by bombs and haunted by Weepers - savage humans infected with a rabies virus. While searching for food, Sherry's father disappears and Sherry is saved by Joshua, a hunter. He takes her to Safe-haven, a vineyard where a handful of survivors are picking up the pieces of their other lives, before the virus changed everything. Sherry must find a way to help her family, stay alive, and decide whether Joshua is their savior or greatest danger as his desire for vengeance threatens them all." (From amazon)

This book was entirely too short. I was reading reading reading and then BAM! the first book is over. We were just getting to really know the characters. Joshua and Sherry have great chemistry. The story is well written and believable. The zombies are scary in an "I am Legend' way. There is even a little intrigue at the end. I hate it when we are given all the important information at the end of the book. It drives me freakin nutso! Because it means I have to wait until the next book. I don't mind except it can be months even years before I get to find out what happens next. Please tell me the next book will be out soon because I cannot wait to find out more.
