Oh man, thank goodness it was short.

Sundered is possibly the most predictable book I've ever read. From the outset, I was left utterly unsurprised and disappointed by this fiasco.

Sometime in the future, a miracle drug is created. And that drug turns people into ... almost!zombies. It's very important that these are almost!zombies instead of actually!zombies so there can be some softcore zombie/human action later on in the book and no one feels too squicked out about it. Oh my.

From the utterly unsexy sex scenes (really, are we going to have one while we're covered in hives? I'm so turned on right now), to the idiocy of the main characters, to the blatantly transparent prose, Sundered is possibly the worst book I've read in a long time.

Yes, I finished it. I spent the whole book waiting for our main character to grow a pair. But she doesn't. Mara's main existence in the book seems to be to stand around and angst about everything.

I do give the book one thing - the concept it had here was really strong. The not!zombies were a neat spin on the classic tale. Their description almost beautiful in a weird and creepy way.

But seriously. Even the 'hey that's pretty neat' concept couldn't stop me from being right about every single 'plot twist' in this shallow, navel-inspecting book.

So not interested in the next one.

I've always been into paranormal romance novels, but never really the zombie types. Shannon Mayer has changed this for me. Sundered was absolutely phenomenal. I couldn't get enough of it. When I finished the last page I was left slack jawed and desperately craving more of this well-written story. The anticipation was pure torture, I just had to know what happened next. The teaser for book two, Bound, only increased that torture.

The main character, Mara, was very believable. Her compassion for her husband, especially toward the end, was so touching. In all honesty, I'm usually the type that figures out what the author is up to before anything actually happens in the story. I'm happy to say that that wasn't the case this time! I was completely blindsided by events in this story. Even now, I can't stop thinking about it.

I'm looking forward to starting book two in the trilogy. I know it will be just as good. I'd expect nothing less from this author! HIGHLY recommended!

I loved this book! I'm a big fan of Romance novels so after a while, the books are a little repetitive. Sundered is very different from what I usually read. The book really centered around the heroine, a strong protagonist who doesn't wait around to be saved by the male character. It has the element of surprise, and cliff hanger that leaves you craving for more! Book is excellently written!

So, I don't know how I missed this was a romance, but I did. In my defense this is classified as horror/fantasy here on amazon with no romance reference and I didn't pick up the romance from the reviews I read. True Zombie genre fans beware, this is nothing but a romance novella with a mere scattering of 28 days later style Zombies (Nevermores) thrown in to heighten the ridiculous romance and add the typical foil in an atypical way.

Story-wise, the "protagonist" is stupid, selfish and vain, her husband barely better. The "doctor" seems to have gained his credentials via a cereal box, or perhaps off the back page of a Mills and Boon book. The story abounds with references to weightloss in the most ridiculous circumstances, one character merely a few kilos overweight "waddling" because of it - typical female self hatred making it clear the author has body image issues.

The small Nevermore interludes are even more ridiculous and completely unbelievable. The author contradicts herself with the "human becoming like pack animals (akin to wolves)" vs. typical Zombie with no motor skills. This Nevermore combination does not compute. They seem to have been dumbed down just enough to make the story sort of work if you've never had any contact with the Zombie genre.

After ploughing on through endless pages of gibbering descriptions of self loathing and fertility issues I ended up skipping the majority of the book, reading just enough to keep up with the story (and there's really only about 5 pages worth of actual story here). Granted a lot of this review is skewed by personal taste (I expected horror and fantasy, not romance after all) and if you like romance then you will probably like this; everyone else don't bother.

I am a huge zombie fan and frequently read zombie books, i just finished the " day by day " series and needed something to fill the time till the next book came out. I figured i would give this a try( it was only 99cents after all). I was very dis satified with this book, i could not make it past the firts couple of chapters. it just seemed that the characters were all to calm going about their day while "zombies" hung out trying to get onto their open property.
Maybe i will try to get through it at a later date. But for now it sits and waits on my kindle.

I'm not a zombie fan, but I am a fan of well written stories with a tight plot, engaging characters and interesting settings. "Sundered" has it all. My heart ached for these characters and the hard decisions they had to make to survive. I may have to declare myself a horror fan after all. Hmm... is horror/romance a genre? If not, it should be!

I agree. I came here based on a friend's recommendation, but I hesitate to buy this book without knowing what it's about.
