Clutching this dream, Cass and many others decamp and follow him into the unknown.Journeying down valleys and over barren hills, Cass remains torn between two men. One—her beloved Smoke—is not so innocent as he once was. The other keeps a primal hold on her that feels like Fate itself. And beneath it all, Cass must confront the worst of what's inside her—dark memories from when she was a Beater herself. But she, and all of the other survivors, will fight to the death for the promise of a new horizon…
My Thoughts on Horizon:

       What Sophie Littlefield has done with the post apocalyptic zombiefied world is breathtakingly amazing. Horizon takes us into the third book in the Aftertime series, and it is a powerhouse of amazing characters and fabulous writing.
       Cass in in the new settlement of New Eden and she is trudging along trying to make do with her life after her fall. From secrecy to turmoil Horizon will captivate readers with this new twist on our future living around the danger of the living dead. When her new settlement has become soft and lets their guard down, they are the most at risk, and no one know risk more that Cass Dollar as she has found her world ripped apart and turned upside down again. As New Eden falls and she is left to help pull the survivors into the unknown while facing the dangers of humans, zombies and the open road will she not only be able to protect herself, her young daughter Ruthie and then the reawakened Smoke. Will her tryst with Dor take precedent over her past relationship with Smoke?

      Littlefield entraps us in a dangerous love triangle filled with hope and despair and keep readers at the edge of their seats until the end.
      For Cass, who believed that her new beginning was her end, there is nothing more dangerous than the road ahead.
