It is the end of the world.
They call him Eagle, like the grand and beautiful bird that symbolizes freedom. During these dark times, when humanity is experiencing nothing but suffering, a man with such a powerful name should be a beacon of hope, yet he is anything but.
Her name is Autumn, but she hasn’t said this name or much of anything else in the four years since the fall of civilization. A shell of her former self, living wild in a cave at the bottom of a ravine, Autumn is accustomed to being alone. She prefers it, actually, especially when her only options for company either try to kill her, or worse, to lock her up inside their walls.
Captured by Eagle’s people, Autumn is suddenly thrust back into the land of the living, but she would hardly call it living. The community of Purgatory is full of sinners, the most evil of whom seem to have set their sights on her.
In an act born of anger and defiance, Eagle becomes Autumn’s unexpected savior, forcing these two solitary people into each other’s broken worlds. Neither knows quite what to make of the other, but one thing is certain. To survive Purgatory, they must learn how to rely on each other, a feat that could possibly teach them both how to live again.

Well I have did not read book one in this series but will be reading it now, Claire Riley and Madeline Sheehan rock! BBB was so freaking good, I was like hooked from page one! I loved the whole after world and survival in this one. It had fight and love all wrapped in one book!
Autumn had been through so much, after the world ended and she watched her family die she lived to survive and however that was she was going to do it. She was not going to be turned into one of them she was going to make it through. But after being caught and brought back to a place with people a community they call Purgatory she will find out maybe living outside the walls was not as bad as this new place. Eagle is a man who lives for nothing, after he lost his wife and kids when the world-ending Eagle only lives, kills and fights to survive. Then these two will find each other and they might just be the end to a crazy alone life they have been living.
What a book… I am not even sure how to describe my feeling for it. IT WAS GOOD… different from a lot of books I have read and I was SO happy I did read it. When Autumn and Eagle find they are each others mute button things will get crazy for a girl who has never lived a “normal” life after the worlds end and a boy who lost it all and never thought he would find good again. It was intense, adventures, crazy twisted! Get ready to take a ride into hell!!
