Straying from the usual plot of trying to create a stronghold and stand their ground, Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde takes us on the road. Trying to get to his brothers military base, Xander picks up new comrades along the way. In Sagliani's world, where zombies aren't the only monsters roaming the streets, Xander and his friends face neo-Nazis, marauders, cults and other evils of a fallen society.

Where all it takes is a single bite, this group of misfits suffer the loss of loved ones, childhood idols, and each other. Xander, jaded and suspicious, displays instincts and common sense far beyond his years. Trained by his soldier half brother, Moto, Xander is skilled in martial arts and wields my favorite weapon...the katana. Unassuming Benji looks to Xander for direction like a lost puppy dog. Xander takes Benji under his wing, protecting him from the torments of man and zombie alike. These two fast friends come across teen actress Felicity Jane. Having fallen victim to the child actor stereotype of substance abuse, Felicity Jane manages to pull herself together and team up with Xander and Benji.

No zombie book would be complete without a few religious zealots. Sagliani manages to sneak in my favorite apocalyptic quote "the dead shall walk the earth because Hell is overflowing and there is no more room for them". And doesn't it just figure that during the apocalypse, the only things left airing on TV are The Jersey Shore and Jackass!?

Appropriate for the Young Adult masses it was written for, Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde balances the right amount of horror and emotion. Sagliani manages to pull out another winner. The characters were relatable and genuine. The story was fast-paced and unexpected. I love that Sagliani hints at the possibility of zombies having a hive mind and working together. read my entire review at [...]

This is a great book for any adolescent zombie enthusiast. As a former middle school/high schoolteacher, I know how difficult it can be to get young people to read. Many books just don’t hold their interest. Teen readers are too old for children’s books, but aren’t ready for full content adult books either.

Recently, great adolescent literature has emerged. Books like The Hunger Games and Divergence, not only draw young readers in, but also appeal to adult audiences. Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde is just such a book, interesting to adults and to young readers alike. The story will suck you in and you won’t want to put the book down!

The plot focuses around a heroic teen, Xander Macnamara who must cross dangerous territory in the post apocalypse world to be reunited with his military brother, Moto. Along the way, Xander, collaborates with other young travelers, twins Joel and Tom Parker, a young celebrity named Felicity Jane and his best friend Benji Jones.

What ensues is a wild roller coaster ride through the zombie infested world they live in.

The story is believable and the characters are well developed. Adult zombie lovers and adolescent readers will love this fast paced and heartfelt zombie tale.

You will love it no matter how old you are!

Format: Paperback
I am a bit torn between two and three stars here, I keep reaching up and changing the rating. Let me type up why I feel this way, then I'll see what I'll do about the rating.

The beginning of the book started off strong. You could see the action coming and realized once the book got its pacing that there would not be much standing around. In the pro column the book did a swell job of that, it was brimming with plot and kept moving. When I started the book I was convinced it was going to be fantastic, and this was with serious reservations - I start most books with reservations. Some of my favorite things in the dawn of the book with the descriptions and occasional introspection.
There seemed some promise in the characterization, they gave some back-story for Benji and he was relatable. Felicity while not entirely relatable was likable.

Unfortunately, for whatever reason, this seemed to stop completely or hedged down to the bare minimal. The main character, Xander, ceased to develop or evolve into much of a character. The physical descriptions seemed to drop down dramatically leaving you wondering what was going on. And what was going on? Really, not much in the background. Many of the explored places were empty besides a singleton zombie to move the plot along, or a very non-threatening horde. Where were all the zombies? Entire neighborhoods were empty. That aside, Xander seemed to be the only one to ever do anything in combat situations, and the things he did seemed very unrealistic.
What bothered me more than that though was Xander just behaved like no one ever would. He was a simple character, and impossible to get into the head of. I have heard a lot of books that are written in first person tend to struggle with this.

Xander.
Running, always running and protecting his friends.
Benji.
A little boy who watched his family being killed and loves comic books.
Felicity Jane.
A beautiful teen actress who becomes part of Xander’s family.
Let’s get one thing clear I still dislike Zombie stories…

Xander sets one goal for himself, to reach the base where his brother Moto is stationed. In the process of reaching this goal he protects Benji, who is bullied by older boys. He takes Benji with him. He meets a teen celebrity, Felicity Jane, and the trio becomes each other’s new family.

The unlikely bizarre circumstances that plague their trip is sometimes too much, yet the investment I ended up putting in these characters, who slowly unfolded their full personalities, was enough to keep me turning pages. I needed to see them safe.

Mr. Sagliani uses words to create three amazing characters. Are they perfect? No, they are kids trying to survive a most horrendous virus known to mankind.

As the reader, we see the Zombies. We hear the Zombies, but they are not overwhelming, even I could put up with them because the journey Xander embarks in puts his character on display. He’s strong. He’s courageous. That’s what we see on the outside. We also see his internal struggle, the one that shows he’s only a kid.

Well executed. It kept me turning the pages until there were no more to turn, but there is, book 2. In the next book will Mr. Sagliani continue the development of these wonderful characters?

If you are a lover of Zombie stories this one is a must read.
