Autumn in the City of Angels (Autumn, #1)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
What would you do if you lived through the apocalypse? The real fight to survive comes after everyone else is gone.

A plague of epic proportion sweeps the globe, leaving less than one percent of the world’s population immune. Among the living is Autumn Winters, the teenage daughter of a famous actress. When Autumn’s parents don’t come home and the city is overtaken by a dangerous faction, she goes into hiding with a small group of underground survivors. They’re led by a mysterious young man who harbors an unearthly secret, and with whom Autumn feels a deep connection.

Autumn in the City of Angels is the first novel in a series, followed by Autumn in the Dark Meadows and Autumn in the City of Lights.

Autumn in the City of Angels by Kirby Howell

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Autumn in the City of Angels (Autumn, #1) "I’m going to make this perfectly simple. Stay away from both me and Grey. We are worlds apart on multiple levels. You don’t know what you’re getting yourself into.”



This was an interesting post-apocalyptic story, with some unexpected twists.

Autumn went through a lot in this story, and although she made some poor decisions, it was easy to see why considering what she’d been through.

The storyline in this seemed to be fairly expected, until we got thrown a bit of a twist. I wasn’t sure how well this twist would work, but it did spice things up a bit.
We did get a bit of romance, although some people might think that it happened a little bit too fast.

The ending to this was another twist, and I’m not sure whether the romance will be able to survive it!
