teaser trailer

The book tells of a not-so-distant world in Israel, following a major epidemic that causes people to become Strixes (a type of zombie). The book is a post-apocalyptic (which for some reason reminds me of the Hunger Games). People live in camps that are separated by Arab, Religious, Secular etc. I finished in just in 3 days and the truth is that I'm really waiting for the next one.

The Bridge of Books

 From the moment I touched the book it was hard for me to leave it, which is pretty funny with all the rules regarding touch it contains.

Full Review

A thrilling and fascinating book, as befits Magi Otsri's flowing and in-depth writing.


This is a brilliant, ingenious book about the good and evil in the human spirit. About the power of memory, friendship, and love


Direct, poignant, and sweeping
