THE WORLD WITHOUT A FUTURE Synopsis: She was born the day the world ended… Nurrin has lived her entire life with zombies—trapped behind walls meant to keep them safe. She’s mostly happy there. But when a zombie horde breach the walls of her Haven, she has to trust her brother, Collin, and his best friend to keep her alive. He just wants his past to die… Finn O’Malley has given up on voicing warnings that are ignored. No one cares that the zombies are changing.
Now all that matters is keeping Collin and Nurrin safe from what’s outside the walls of a Haven. But when Nurrin’s best friend picks up a contact infection, he agrees to get the medicine needed to save his life.
Forced together, relying on each other in a strange Haven, zombies aren’t the most dangerous thing they’re facing. In their world, only one thing remains true: everything ends in blood.

Book Review: Fibromyalgia: Living a Life of Blessing and Hope by Shannon Sonneveldt - 4/5 Stars- Great for Newly Diagnosed Fibromyalgians
Book Overview: Imagine living in a pain beyond description, unable to do the simplest tasks that you have been doing your entire life, unable to sleep, and dealing with sensory overload (every noise is too loud, light to bright and smell to strong). All this with people telling you that you're fine, it's all in your head, just suck it up and move on. Imagine how you would cope with the pain and other symptoms with no support from friends, family or the medical community. How would you move forward? How would you live your life each day? This is what many diagnosed with Fibromyalgia experience every day. Fibromyalgia takes a toll physically, emotionally and relationally. Millions of people have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia; these Fibromyalgians must navigate the pain and myriad of other symptoms often with little support. No Fibromyalgian should feel like they are in this alone, there are millions of us and we can provide each other with support, encouragement and advice. Through each other and with the help of Christ, we can all make our way through the dark tunnel of pain into a new life of blessing and hope.
What I like the most about this book:
- This book does a really good job of explaining the emotional hardships and physical hardships someone with Fibromyalgia will go through. It will remind people that they're not alone in their struggles. I personally didn't learn anything new from this book, but I've had it for 2 years and have researched it a lot.
- It blends the author's personal story with a plan for the reader to overcoming their challenges very well. I kept it from becoming a boring read.
What I didn't like about the book:
- There are some things that I felt called for a medical solution more than a spiritual one, but some people might find it helpful. It was not enough to ruin the book for me though.
Overall: This book is great for people who have just been diagnosed with Fibro. You will learn that you're not alone in experiencing your symptoms and that there are many, many resources out there for you to use to get help. I could relate to 99% of this book and even though I already knew a lot of information in it, I still recommend it as it could truly help someone trapped in the darkness of Fibro.
