Chapter-by-Chapter-header---Review

Gabby-2013Truthfully, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from author Emma Pass’s novel The Fearless. It looked very dystopian from the cover and the description I read for it sounded interesting. A case of science trying to do something right and doing the complete opposite instead. It was a story that wasn’t anything at all what I expected it to be and had an action-packed storyline that kept me guessing until the very end. The Fearless is an incredibly unique novel.

               Set in a future where a military serum meant to make super soldiers goes horribly awry, main character Cass has been among a group of survivors for the past several years. The Fearless were originally supposed to result in soldiers stripped of their fear, but instead resulted in people stripped of their humanity, whose goal is to turn others just like them. After losing her father in the invasion of the Fearless, Cass and a small community of people have taken refuge on Hope Island—distanced from the Fearless and their inhumane ways. But when Cass’s brother is stolen by the Fearless, she embarks on a journey to go after him and bring him home.

               At its core, The Fearless is a zombie story without the zombies. The Fearless themselves are a horde of monsters who have been turned from humans to something else entirely. Something that craves only to pass on its affliction to other humans. Something that is slowly rotting in the most horrifying ways possible.  Unlike zombies, the Fearless are still intelligent. They are still strong. They’re pretty badass. Imagine an onslaught of human-shaped monsters with no humanity coming after you with dead, silver eyes—it’s pretty scary to imagine. And that’s exactly what Pass’s characters have been enduring every day for the past seven years.
