This book was so amazing, so well done! The racism element was so well incorporated into this horror fantasy world. The characters were badass & fun to follow. It has zombies but it doesn't derive its horror from there, the racial divide, the prejudice is where the horror lies.
And the way things were revealed, the decisions our mc made & the climax! ah *chef's kiss*

Special appreciation for the audiobook, cuz boy oh boy was it well narrated! I had chills down my spine at certain moments. The narrator truly elevated the mood & the experience of the book.
