FERAL by James DeMonaco and B.K. Evenson




I had high hopes for this book. I thought since James DeMonaco created The Purge, then this book would be good. I thought wrong. The premise was promising, but after the first two chapters I decided to ditch this book. I came back to it twice, trying to finish it, but I closed it for good after I realized what was happening to the characters.

The chapters switch from first-person to third-person, which didn't transition well. There's a sex tape that gets leaked around the high school. The girl in the video is cool with everything. She really wants to be popular. Then, the apocalypse hits. Men are the only ones affected by the bioengineered virus. Some die off quickly, while others turn feral and kill the shit out of women. 

The book jumps three years into the future. Women are hiding in camps and the feral men lurk about in the decaying towns. The women are strong in this book. I didn't finish this book, though. 

1/5 stars! ⭐
