White Horse is the first book in an absolutely unique debut trilogy--a post-apocalyptic thriller chronicling one woman's quest to nurture those she holds dear against the backdrop of a shocking, new world.

The world has ended, but her journey has just begun.

Thirty-year-old Zoe leads an ordinary life until the end of the world arrives. She is cleaning cages and floors at Pope Pharmaceuticals when the president of the United States announces that human beings are no longer a viable species. When Zoe realizes that everyone she loves is disappearing, she starts running. Scared and alone in a shockingly changed world, she embarks on a remarkable journey of survival and redemption. Along the way, Zoe comes to see that humans are defined not by their genetic code, but rather by their actions and choices. White Horse offers hope for a broken world, where love can lead to the most unexpected places.

An extremely dark story about the end of the world brought about by.. that's the question the books seems to be seeking. Zoe, which means life in Greek, is the main character, she is trying to maintain her humanity in a world where there is none. The story is told in the past and the future switching back and forth in time. It keeps you interested if only to see how things turn out. I'm not sure if I want to read the next in the triology though.

90% of the world's people are dead from a DNA altering virus. Zoe is unaffected and fights for her life while the rest of the 10% survivors try to kill each other. Interesting story, though some presented mutations are not biologically possible to be viable. It's never explained why Zoe is immune. Ending is weak. Easy but disturbing reading.
