Stung by Bethany Wiggins

A bit from the author's webpage:

There is no cure for being stung.

Fiona doesn't remember going to sleep.  But when she opens her eyes, she discovers her entire world has been altered - her house is abandoned and broken, and the entire neighborhood is barren and dead.  Even stranger is the tattoo on her right hand - a black oval with five marks on either side - that she doesn't remember getting but somehow knows she must cover at any cost.  She's right.

Those bearing the tattoo have turned into mindless, violent beasts that roam the streets and sewers, preying upon the unbranded while a select few live protected inside a fortress-like wall, their lives devoted to rebuilding society and killing all who bear the mark.

Now Fiona has awakened branded, alone - and on the wrong side of the wall.
My Take:

Stung was awesome!  One of the best books I’ve read in a while.  It was fast paced with unexpected turns around each corner.  I could not put it down and read it in two days.  It’s set in Denver which was also kind of a neat little thing for me, since I live very near Denver.  The storyline was spectacular and the characters were wonderful.  And isn't the cover cool too?!   I’m giving this one 5 big stinging smaks!!
