Zillow Stone & The Unholy One, Brindi Quinn

"You are that pink flower, Zillow," my grandfather told me. "And one day, the black rose will come for you."

Zillow and the Unholy one by Brindi Quinn is a super fun, exciting read! As I was reading it gave me a Hunger Games feel. If you are a fan of The Maze Runner or The Hunger Games, these books are for you! 

Zillow, "a mondo badass loner", is a 19 year old girl who fears turning 20. Where Zillow is from, when a person turns 20 they have the possibility of becoming a prag. Being a prag means that you were marked, and the chase is now in motion. Prags spend every hour of every day running from their markers/the unholy ones. Many never return. It's a game. 

"Catch me if you can, away I'll run, run,run. You'll never lay a haaand, the chase is so much fun!"

To Zillow's surprise there are safe houses and people willing to help prags. But how do you know where to go and who to trust? All that is for certain is that once the mark on your hand turns red, the unholy knows exactly where you are. How are you supposed to run when you're being tracked? How are you supposed to run when the tracker is inside your own hand? 

I didn't know what to expect when reading this book. I knew it would be a quick read because the book comes in 3 separate acts. It is very fast paced and left me wanting more. The author wasted no time in getting the story started. There was nothing but action and excitement from the very first word to the very last. I am really looking forward to the next books. Brindi Quinn makes you love the chase. 

"I, Zillow Stone, was a marked one, and I was going to win."
