  • Midway is a tie-in novella that compliments The Harvesting, Book I in The Harvesting Series.
  • Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, for the beginning of the end.
  • Carnie. Ride jockey. Roustabout. White trash. Tilt girl. Gypsy. Cricket has been called a lot of things, but she never thought survivor of the zombie apocalypse would be one of them. One day she's barking on the midway, and the next day, the world is eating itself alive.
  • Cricket, along with Vella, a tarot reader, and Puck, Cricket's mangy mutt, find themselves running for their lives, but where can you hide when mankind has fallen? Cricket will need help if she hopes to survive.
  • Luckily for her, we were never really alone, and apparently, magical forces want to keep this tilt girl alive.

  • My Thoughts:

  • I adored this first book in this series and was excited to read this one. And boy, did I adore this too!! 

  • This focuses on Cricket, a carny who loves her life. She sees that attendance is down at the carnival due to this flu that is going around. Her fellow carnies decide to move on to the next town, but the morning of the move, those who were feeling sick are more than that now! Cricket, along with Vella and her dog Puck are the sole survivours of their carnival and are now on the run! Where is there to hide? Where is there a safe haven?

  • Cricket was awesome! Sweet, kind: especially to her dog, loyal, but she is also strong willed, confident and kick ass! She has no clue what is about to come but she does her best to keep herself, her dog and her friend alive. She was a character that was easy to like and I was rooting for her throughout. 

  • This was a quick, intense and addicting read. Once I started, I couldn't stop, nor did I want to! The world the author has created is phenomenal. It has a bit of everything, with things unfolding slowly and surprisingly throughout the story. The characters were all well written and developed, the plot was imaginative and inventive and overall, the book was stupendous!! 

  • Kristin James really knows how to tell and amazing story. Her voices and cadences were varied and unique and she really brought the story to life.
