The author delivers a fun new twist on old school monsters - vampires, shape shifters, werewolves and of course, zombies. The addition of a culture where voodoo ritual is the norm and folks raise their dead as a party trick, makes it that much more interesting. Our heroine is not indestructible. She has a lot of obstacles to overcome with barely more wits than the rest of us, which drags readers along on a compelling ride. I got really attached - upset when things didn't go her way, relieved when they did, concerned she'd live to finish out the book - which isn't something I took for granted. You don't usually FEEL that kind of peril.

Ace's zombie apocalypse is not for the faint of heart either. If this story had been a movie, I would've been watching from between my fingers.

I enjoyed it!

Confessions of Sylva Slasher by Ace Antonio Hall

Sylva Fleischer is an eighteen year old girl working for the Police department. Her job is the raise the dead, she does this for families in mourning as well. Two years after her boyfriend Brandon dies she to go on a cruise with her friends to try to overcome her depression.

But once she leaves she finds that she is in a world with flesh eating zombies. She and her friends have to fight for their lives and she inadvertently becomes known as Sylva Slasher. Add to it she sees Brandon...is he really Dead? And what is happening to her? And what exactly did happen to her parents? These are questions she may not like the answers to.

An original story that moves at a fast pace with a lot of action, secrets, and humor. Sylva is very likable, her approach on life is that of a young lady her age with a lot of humor.

There are secrets revealed about her parents, she has to accept (what she learns) or just cope with the truth. There are events in her life that she does not expect, and again she has to adjust and accept.

A well written zombie story. Very original, with likable characters and so much action I was on the edge-of-my seat. I liked the added humor and the surprises, I like a story that keeps me guessing. Overall I found Confessions of Sylva Slasher entertaining and very enjoyable. Those who love a great zombie story should enjoy it as well!

Format: Paperback
With a necromancer and plenty of undead creatures roaming the new world, it's clear this is an urban fantasy/horror. The world building was a bit shaky, for me, near the end, but it's undeniable that the action and adventure were addictive.

Sylva is a modern day necromancer of eighteen years old. She's made her business a bit of an entertainment when boarding the costume-themed cruise for a ritual raising that goes a bit sideways on her and from there, the story tumbles into place.

There's so much awesome action that isn't redundant or predictable. Who you think are safe, aren't necessarily so and I find this always puts me on edge, especially with vibrant characters like Sylva, Emily & Flip. I also really enjoyed the injection of the Hawaiian modern culture. Anya was an unstoppable villain, of sorts.

The part leading up to the ending was a bit distracting. Suddenly, like her, I didn't know what was real and what wasn't and it was confusing for a while. I almost gave this a 4 star because of it felt like there were two different stories that were mashed together, but I realized I liked both versions.

CONCLUSION

This story likes to take you on an unpredictable adventure that I think urban fantasy fans would like. There's a sassy main character and plenty of vibrant characters to love and hate.

Kinda has that Sucker Punch flip to it. Zombies vs Mental Patients.

An urban fantasy clash of zombies, vampires and werewolves. A clever thinking girl and drops of blood spatter.

This book actually won me a KINDLE FIRE! I end up buying a copy and then received a copy from author signed. I'm glad to own this book I had low expectations on it. Because YA books are not really my thing.

Equal plot twist, fair amounts of blood a little bit of love & hate and zombies. Great Read!

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this book, but one thing that caught my attention and stuck with me throughout this book is why the heck someone would want a g-string when in the middle of a zombie apocalypse? Come on! That's absolutely absurd. A g-string on a normal day is absurd.

Okay. Enough about the g-string. I really did enjoy reading this book. It's got zombies and vampires, and zombie birds and something I totally didn't see coming. Sylva Slasher totally lives up to her name and will not disappoint readers who love reading about zombies getting their butts kicked. And the twist, there was such a twist I didn't see coming. I'm kinda hoping there will be more about Sylva in the future.

Format: Paperback
The Confessions of Sylva Slasher delivers all the face-munching, bone-crunching, limb-gnawing zombie action one could hope for. Plus it introduces a complex teen a heroine with a sense of humor, a feisty personality and kickass martial arts moves. Oh, did I mention that Sylva's a necromancer, too? I stayed up reading this thriller. Basically, Sylva and two of her best buds go on a zombie-themed cruise for fun and to help Sylva forget about her troubles involving her parents and her deceased boyfriend. Fun turns to horror when a real zombie outbreak transforms their cruise ship into a plague ship. Not only does author, Ace Antonio Hall, give readers loads of suspense and gore, he deftly executes unpredictable story twists and turns. These, along with Sylva's depth of character and inner conflict, take The Confessions of Sylva Slasher to a level beyond most zombie novels. Looking forward to more Sylva Slasher novels from Ace Antonio Hall.
