Genres: New Adult, Post-Apocalyptic
RecruitZ (Afterworld #1)
Scientists are the new rock stars. The infection has been contained for nearly three months, and the world is celebrating. But humans are still dying. Rebekah Taylor has seen it firsthand. Her husband was killed right in front of her by the very creatures that humans were told they no longer had to fear.
Rebekah is determined to find out who is responsible for the death of her husband and the obvious cover-up. Fueled with revenge, she begins to find answers that lead to one frightening conclusion. The apocalypse might be over, but the battles are just beginning.
AlibiZ (Afterworld #2)
The outbreak might be over, but the nightmare is just beginning…
Rebekah vows to expose the truth behind the RecruitZ that are killing the innocents. These creatures must be stopped, but so should the people controlling them. When Rebekah uncovers who is behind the uprisings, her own life becomes in danger.
Rebekah knows that she is not alone in this fight but vengeance alone won’t help her and the others to victory. It is up to her to uncover the truth for the public before the world is turned over to an elite few.
Regardless of what may happen to her, she knows it’s a race against time to destroy these creatures and the monsters controlling them before there is no one left worth saving.

Book Review ~ ‘Alibiz’ by Karice Bolton ~ 5 Stars!
‘RecruitZ’ was one of my favourite reads this year, so when I saw that ‘AlibiZ’ was soon to be available I squealed with excitement.
Karice Bolton has created such a well developed world that not only intrigues me, but has me on the edge of my seat as the inhabitants of it struggle to move on with their life.
Before I started the ‘Afterworld Series’ I was relatively new to the Zombie genre and it was due to my desire to find a story that not only showed the full force of the blood and gore, but also really went into the minds of the survivors and showed the pain and suffering that these people have to live through in order on.
Bekah and Preston are some of my favourite characters period. Karice Bolton has given them such engrossing storylines and I’ve loved seeing how they developed in not only their relationship with each other, but also in the inner strength and hope they begin to feel for the future. What I found refreshing in ‘RecruitZ’ was the slow burn to the romance in their relationship, and boy was the wait worth it. The time they took to become close friends, and in a way soul mates, is what has made their romantic relationship all the more special as we see two people who have feared to form attachments in an unpredictable world find a love that keeps them going through the tough times.
The scientific elements of this series are the things that really make this story stand out from others in its genre. I loved seeing more about the development of the vaccine and seeing how science can be used in both good and evil ways. Seeing all these elements and how they caused the events of the Zombie apocalypse is what made the storyline seem all that more real and relatable to me.
This was an action packed and thrilling second book in the ‘Afterworld’ Series, and I am officially addicted. Karice Bolton has such an incredible writing style that I just couldn’t put the book down for one second without feeling stuck in the story and thinking about the characters that were waiting for me on the next page. A fantastic addition to the series and I can’t wait to read more of Bekah and Preston!
