About the Author

It was watching Romero's Night of the Living Dead at the tender age of 6 that solidified Julianne’s respect of the Undead. Since that day, she has been preparing herself for the (inevitable) Zombie Apocalypse. While classically trained in all of the ways to defend herself, she took up writing in order to process the desire she now covets; to bestow a second and final death upon the Undead, As the only girl growing up in a family with four children in the Canadian countryside, Julianne needed some form of escape. Her choice was the imaginations of others which only fostered the vibrancy of her own. The horror and forensic/crime thriller genres top her list of favourites, but she can never turn down a good science fiction, fantasy or mystery read. Julianne appears in the anthology Women of the Living Dead with a story entitled The Living Dead at Penderghast Manor. Look for her short stories in future anthologies. Days with the Undead: Book One is her first full-length book, the basis of which can be found in her popular web serial of the same name.

Then Day three, the day it all begins with one very insightful lesson:

"Our escape was narrow but our lesson important -- never stop to stare"

I want to go on and on about how wonderful this collection of days is. It was a brilliant idea and with Julianne's forensic background she was able to bring to the plate not only a scientific take but her own passion for the genre. We as readers are immersed in a daily fight for survival. From the early days. Unlike with The Walking Dead where Rick wakes up much later, this is them riding the wave of infection out of Toronto. I cannot remember how many times I cringed and held my breath and a few times a tear rolling down my face. Just such a well wrought story. Flushed out from the original web series, it brings to light the power of individuals in the need and desire to survive.

There are parts of these days that definitely make this a mature read. The video games have rated most zombie games as Mature (17 and above) I would have to label this read with the same. Not because there is tons gore and violence, there is but it is not in a gratuitous amount. Specifically there are scenes with particularly small individuals that I would not want my 16 year year old, let alone the younger ones, reading just yet.

The subject of zombies and a zombie apocalypse is popular to the point of being a viral constant (heh viral) on the net and in other media formats, such as books and movies. So how does one make it original enough to go grab this one up? Why should you buy it? Well because of the unique approach the author has taken.

This was a bit different for me. The story is narrated by Julie as an ongoing journal on the internet. She is recording everything that has happened to her and her 4 friends starting three days after the outbreak, as they go on the run, seeking someplace safe from the zombies.

Right away, I liked how the author addressed people’s reactions to the news of the flesh-eating outbreak. Many just went about their daily lives. That is, until the zombies came calling.

Some of the towns they passed through were untouched, while others were ravaged. They had to be careful not only of the zombies. There were pirates out there, goons who would as soon shoot you as help you. They want what you’ve got, plain and simple.

While telling her tale, Julie begins relating each of her friends stories. What happened to them when the outbreak occurred and how they came to be together.

If you are going to survive, you have to get tough, keep your group small, and keep moving. No stopping to help anyone, and no letting someone join the group, no matter what.

It’s easy to think, but harder when they’re faced with some choices.

Zombie fans know that things happen. Not everyone can survive. You expect losses. But don’t you wish it didn’t have to be that way?

By writing this as a journal, Julianne did an excellent job. I was actually picturing the scenes, nodding at some things, and hoping the zombie apocalypse stayed what it is. Fiction.

You can learn a lot about surviving the apocalypse by reading Julie’s journal.

I was going to give this 4 stars but the ending bumped it right up to 5! I read it several times and it floored me.

I received this book for my honest and unbiased review.

I received a copy of this book for honest review. 'Days with the Undead' is the journal account of a zombie apocalypse, filled with warnings of what to do and what not to do when zombies attack.

The narrator Julie is a no-nonsense doctor who right from the first entry comes across as someone who has seen it all and doesn't want to see anyone else make the same mistakes she has already witnessed. She does come across a bit on the cold side but there is an explanation for this which appears much later in the book. The moments of horror glimpsed in the beginning are gory and well depicted but the true terror in this tale of survival is not unveiled until close to it's well plotted ending. I was uncertain where the story was going when I started reading it but I was satisfied by how it ended and it really stuck in my head - I actually kept thinking back to the story long after I put it down.

So while in the beginning Julie's journey didn't seem so unusual for a zombie apocalypse survivor, the story does take a surprising twist and suddenly becomes more than meets the eye. I was very impressed by this unexpected development as it elevated the story from the typical to the brilliant in an instant. The ending for me is also where the weight of the apocalyptic events lies, in the horrors of what Julie has endured to survive. It goes a long way to explaining her stern attitude and at times cold retellings of events.

Overall this is a well plotted zombie apocalypse story with a brilliant ending. Recommended for fans of horror and zombie books!
