Présentation de l'éditeur

The world has changed.
The buildings have fallen, blown away with the winds made hot from the bombs.
The roads crumble as the forest takes back the land we stole a long time ago.
It's only been ten years since the end but it feels like a hundred for Emma who has been alone since the beginning, surviving on the skills her crazy father forced on her.
Trust no one.
Pull the trigger.
Hide.
Run.
Stay away from the other survivors
Stay away from The Infected.
She has obeyed his rules since she can remember running from the car accident that claimed his life.
But one night that all changes.
The knock at her cabin door and voice of the girl on the other side don't make Emma help the girl.
No.
It's the fact the girl, Anna, is willing to die to save her wounded brother that changes everything in Emma's world.
She finds friends and family in Anna and her brother Jake.
She feels things she thought she never would.
But like her Granny always said, 'Everything comes at a cost. You must decide what you are willing to pay.'
For Emma that decision comes as Anna is stolen and taken to the breeder farms.
Emma knows she will pay anything to get Anna back, including her own life.

*Mature Readers Recommended. Frightening scenes with Zombies and Breeder Farms*

5.0 étoiles sur 5 OMG! One of the best I have read this year! 4 novembre 2012
Par Ruthanne Kight - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This was the first book that I read by Tara Brown, after a good friend kept telling me how amazing her books are. So, I decided to give it a read. Am I glad I did?? YES! I have read a lot of books, with a lot of different themes within them, but Born literally blew them out of the water.

Emma has been living on her own for ten years, since the infection took hold of our world. These are not zombies, but they do resemble them in that they are no longer human, but aren't dead, technically. The government has turned the world upside down, kidnapping young girls and women to become breeders in their facilities.

Emma has not had human contact since her father died ten years ago, but now she can't seem to keep people away at all. Enter Jake and Anna, siblings, who seem to get under Emma's skin. Then there's Will, their older brother, who was supposed to be dead. Can you say mixed up??

Tara weaves this delicious story so well that I was literally sucked into her world. I stayed up all night reading just so I could find out what happened next. So, with that being said, you are seriously missing out if you don't go read this! Or any book by Tara Brown for that matter! She has a way with words that seems to be lost among most Indies today. Hope you enjoy!!

(This book was purchased on Smashwords, not Amazon)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unbelievably Good! 17 septembre 2012

I just finished reading Born five minutes ago and my heart is still pounding wildly in my chest - the cliff hanger is making my insides twist! I certainly hope the next book is out very, very soon (a less than subtle hint to the author!).

This is a fantastic book, but it is extremely harsh and frighteningly realistic in many respects. The story is set in the near future in the aftermath of a lethal virus that killed billions of people or worse yet, did not kill them but left them with only the most basic of instincts - to kill and consume. The original virus mutated and that was not a part of "their" plan. Don't get me wrong, this is definitely not a book about "zombies" - they are just one of the many dangers that exist in this new world. There are breeder camps where women are taken against their will by hunters and trackers who don't seem to have a shred of humanity left in them and we as readers are made well aware of that. This story is not for the faint of heart.

Emma has been alone since she was 9 years old and her only companion is a timber wolf named Leo. Now, 19 she thinks she is a coward but she has learned how to survive, how to hunt and how to kill. She has witnessed horrific acts perpetrated by men who prey on the weak, especially young women and take what they want in all respects. She has a certain naivety about life having had no social interaction with other people in a decade so when Anna comes to her door for help, she almost turns her away and/or kills her. But Anna is determined to get help for her injured brother and suddenly Emma's world is turned upside down and inside out. Jake, Anna and Emma go through hell together but when they are separated and Anna is captured and taken to a breeder camp, Emma puts her life on the line to get her back. After learning what really happens to the women once they are no longer needed for breeding, Emma pledges to take the camp down.

Emma goes through an incredible transformation from a lone and lonely survivor to a strong, determined and vivacious young woman who stops turning her back on the wrongs she witnesses and decides to do something about it. She learns to love and hate with a passion, tests loyalties, survives one betrayal but will she fall victim to another? She becomes a rebel, a warrior and a leader...but what will it cost her?

There are so many amazing characters in this story that make up Emma's new family - Jake, who is cute, funny and has loads of anti-survivor instincts and who may or may not be in love with Emma; Anna who is brave, fearless and loyal; Will who toys with Emma's heart but always has her back; Meg, who talks tough and spits venom but who is really just a kid looking for a place to belong; Sarah, who at 11, is quietly brave for one who has seen and heard too much and Leo, the beautiful and loyal wolf who has a bond with Emma that no one could ever sever.

The book has some familiar themes, I agree, but it is incredibly well written and the story dips and flows like a roller coaster that never stops. It has an amazing energy that is second to none and I loved it. It is definitely one of the best books that I've read in a long time - it left me breathless. One warning - the story contains some mature themes and things get pretty nasty at times so be prepared for that - it is all an intregal part of the story though and necessary for the reader to understand just how bad things are.

Five Stars Plus! An excellent read and I highly recommend it. Well done!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Weak Zombie Book, Possibly Better On The Romance 4 avril 2013
Par Art - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a zombie apocalypse book combined with a two brothers competing for the heroine romance. If you click on the "most helpful" favorable reviews for the book, and look at the books those reviewers have reviewed in the past, it looks like they very much like romance novels. Possibly this is a better romance novel than a zombie book. Romance novels aren't really my thing, so I cant contradict those folks with any confidence that romance-lovers will agree. However, I sometimes like a fantasy or sci-fi story with romance if it has a good story, so I feel I can fairly review the book for those that arent big romance novel fans. With that caveat in mind, my review of this book is very negative.

I like zombie books. Unfortunately, the premise of this one was so ridiculous that it made me laugh. The premise is that "the UN" got sick of folks ignoring global warming, so they decided to use nukes to unleash earth quakes and tidal waves to go along with a plague, but woops, their plague mutated and boom zombie problem! As if this isn't ridiculous enough, the UN then founds some cities devoted to breeding white folks that are free of any disease or defect (such as diabetes) and goes around hunting random healthy white girls to use in their "breeding farms," then kills the girls after they give birth x3 and throws them in the dump. I can suspend disbelief for zombies from cause unknown. I can suspend disbelief for zombies from evil corporations doing experiments. I can suspend disbelief for probably 100 other scenarios -- but this????

There are other problems: (1) the author doesn't know the meaning of some of the words she uses -- for example, she has one of the heroines' romantic interests "sneer" at her when she is relating the horrors that happened to her; (2) the heroine goes from living entirely alone from age 9 to I think it was 19, then essentially instantly melts over two hunky brothers; (3) just about everyone is a would-be rapist even if they appear helpful at first; (4) the heroine goes from an ingrained survival philosophy of "never help anyone" to risking her life to helping random vulnerable folks at the drop of a hat and doesnt really look back.

I'm not really qualified to review the romance aspect, but for what its worth, it didn't work for me. Again, this was a girl that had been on her own since 9. And she is instantly melting for basically the first guys she talks too.

Plot aside, the writing isn't terrible, and I was enjoying the book a bit until the absurdities just got too much for me. I struggled to finish it.

P.S. If you do want a sci-fi romance, I'm only slightly embarrassed to admit that I liked The Host. Assumptions about Stephanie Meyer's writing dont hold up -- the book has a very serviceable if light sci-fi plot, and the romance flows naturally from the story. While you can (easily) poke holes if you like, suspension of disbelief isnt too hard because Meyer takes the sci-fi aspect sufficiently seriously. Dont judge by the movie (obviously).

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Seriously? 30 juin 2013
Par Kelsey LeeAnne - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm not even sure where to start. The ridiculous love triangle, the UN conspiracy to thin out the human population with a manmade virus because first world countries ignored their warnings about global warming, the government shipping africans and asians back to africa and asia and only breeding white babies in the US, the timber wolf that follows orders and understands conversations better than the smartest border collie, the infuriating lack of medical knowledge, or the obnoxious protagonist who can't make up her mind about men or her moral platforms. At one point, the protagonist even flips out about a rape victim acting like a "whore," saying that true rape victims wouldn't act that way. She also gets mad at one of the love interests for abusing her, saying that "abusers always say sorry" then kisses him again, then he abuses her again, then she kisses him again. Meanwhile, she continuously blows off the guy she knows is better for her. Really?! Save your money folks.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Such a waste of time 25 juin 2013

Separate from my review: This book has rape in it. It's not detailed, but it is implied and attempted a lot. I think it could be traumatic to someone who has experienced violence like that.

------------------------------

The books starts off good and with an interesting concept, but quickly becomes ridiculous at about the 30% mark.

A girl who has spent 10 years surviving by avoiding people at all costs suddenly starts making out with a boy because he asks her to? Stupid.

Then, later while lying in the field (for 10 minutes) trying to hide from zombies, she starts making out with another guy? More stupid.

Then, after making it to a camp after walking for a day and running away from zombies, she decides to go stomping off into the woods in a huff without resting, eating or taking any food with her simply because kissed boy #2 had a maybe girlfriend and the two kissed boys weren't acknowledging her enough? Totally stupid.

I started skimming after that point and the plot just kept getting more ridiculous. It was awful.
