Book Review-The Eleventh Plague

By Hunter Roark

In a post-apocalyptic world, the only way to survive is to keep moving.

America has become a vast desolate landscape, which was left ravaged by a brutal war. Two-thirds of the population is dead from a vicious outbreak of influenza. The name then became “The Eleventh Plague.”

Stephen Quinn was born after the war. All he knows is the life of a salvager. Stephen’s family was among the few people who survived and took to roaming what’s left of the United States. Stephen’s grandfather and mother have died. Then his father went into a coma after an accident.

Settler’s Landing is a community that seems too good to be true. Stephen eventually makes his way to Settler’s Landing. While Stephen is there, he meets Jenny who refuses to accept things as they are. Stephen and Jenny play a prank on the town that goes horribly wrong. Chaos starts to erupt. Stephen and Jenny find themselves in the midst of a battle that will change settler’s landing and all their lives- forever.

The Eleventh Plague is a very good and interesting book that I highly recommend it. I enjoyed that it was about an apocalypse, but it was not centered around zombies. The characters make it feel real, and when one of them dies,, it feels like the story can’t go on but it does.
