About the book:

Amber Tate believes the worst thing she’ll suffer in life is dealing with the unrequited love she feels for her brother’s best friend, Rylen Fite. She also believes war is something unfortunate that happens places far, far away from her rural Nevada town. She’s wrong on both counts.

When an unknown organization meticulously bombs major cities in the United States and across the globe, a trickle-down effect spreads to remaining towns at an alarming speed—everything from food and water sources to technology and communications are compromised. Without leadership, the nation is split between paralysis and panic, but Amber isn’t one to hide or watch helplessly. She’s determined to put her nursing skills to use, despite the danger, even if it means working alongside the man she can never have.

In this first installment of NY Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins’s debut New Adult series, a frighteningly realistic apocalyptic America is brought to life, entwined with searing romantic tension that will leave you eager for more.

My Review:

I didn’t know Wendy Higgins had a new book coming out until literally 20 minutes before release day when I saw her post on Facebook. I immediately rushed to Amazon and pre-ordered my copy. It’s very different from her Sweet series (which is the series that made me fall in love with Wendy Higgins) as well as extremely different from The Great Hunt book but it’s just as amazing. I’m in awe that Wendy Higgins is able to write such a wide range of stories and hit the nail on the head every time.

Be forewarned that unlike her other two series the romance happens at a much slower pace and in fact I don’t even think of this as mostly a romance story. It’s action packed, thrilling and really had me at the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next. Rylan and Amber have an interesting and complicated relationship that we see build through flash backs and into the present. And while I am dying to see how their relationship will progress the rest of the storyline had me totally engrossed as well. I finished it and need the next book, Unrest, ASAP! If you are looking for an exciting, can’t put down until you finish read then you definitely should pick up Unknown!
