Reapers Are the Angels is absolutely the best zombie novel I have ever read. Twenty five years after the collapse of civilization under waves of the walking dead (or “meatskins” as our protagonist calls them), 15 year-old Temple roams the country, killing to stay alive. Just when she thinks she’s found a home, she accidentally kills a would-be rapist and must flee from his ruthless brother, now hell-bent on revenge. An amazing literary zombie novel, Reapers Are the Angels is a chilling, shocking tale of a world without laws. Temple is like no other narrator I’ve ever encountered. Orphaned, illiterate, and yet mature way beyond her years, she attempts to escape not only the killer on her trail, but also the monster inside her. Her ability to see beauty in a decimated world along with the eerie respect her stalker affords her made Bell’s novel a book I won't be able to forget for a long, long time. - Camilla
