Book Description

*This is a young adult book series. Each chronicle will feature Dean's struggles as he tries to survive in this new world. And thus the name, The Zombie Chronicles. I hope you enjoy this series, and thank you for giving book one a chance.*

Welcome to the Apocalypse Infection Unleashed Series.

Book 1 – The Zombie Chronicles
Book 2 – Race for the Cure
Book 3 – Deadly City
Book 4 – Poisonous Serum
Book 5 – Undead Nightmare
Book 6 – Revelation
Book 7 – Trepidation (due out in Jan.)
Book 8 – Impact (due out in spring)

Warning: Mild violence. For mature teens or older.


Val was bitten by a zombie and now she’s scheduled for lethal injection. Breaking all the rules, eighteen year old, Dean Walters snags an experimental serum. But it can’t be tested until Val turns into a zombie: something authorities won’t allow. Her execution is scheduled to happen before transformation is complete, giving Dean only hours to break her out.

When their helicopter crashes straight into the heart of Zombie Land, his rescue mission becomes a fight for survival…and giving up on Val is NOT an option.

1.0 out of 5 stars christ almighty- this is bad, very bad August 6, 2013
Format:Audible Audio Edition
Wow. I ploughed on with the book to find it ends on a cliff hanger. Well to be honest I saw the ending coming about 10 pages earlier.

Terrible writing, awful, and I mean god awful dialogue between all the characters.
All kinds of nonsense dialogie between them during supposedly tense action scenes.

So many pages taken up with banal conversations, did I mention the god awful dialogue? Just to make sure this sinks in, its bloody awful.

Why keep referring to the undead as zombies? "Quick, watch out for the zombie on your left" "there's too many zombies"

Imagine if you heard that in the walking dead??

And the teenage slushy romance? It seemingly takes place over weeks as its clear everyone falls in love with each other, including a guy who wants to date a girl dying from a bite. Christ that hair dialogue between the two was toe curlingly bad. Toe curlingly may not be a word, but neither is there're and that was in this book.

Also the action parts were poorly explained, hardly had a clue what was goin on as most things made no sense. Certainly felt like the author was about 13 herself

I won't be getting the next one as the characters were all so bloody wet and annoying I was hoping they'd be killed in some horrendous way everytime I turned the page.

Last time I trust amazon reviews on face value. All the 1 stars hit the nail on the head with this book. Its essentially the zombie version of twilight. If that's your thing then go for it. Anyone hoping for something a little more gritty as a post apocalyptic zombie book should be should swerve this. I only gave it one star because I couldn't give it zero, or minus.
Sorry Chrissy, you may be a nice lady, but a zombie author you ain't

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent, Highly Enjoyably Zombie Tale August 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you have a thing for zombie books, if you loved the movie "Zombieland" or the TV series "The Walking Dead" than you will be mad about "The Zombie Chronicles (Apocalypse Infection Unleashed Series)" by Chrissy Peebles.

The first chapter starts the action with Dean and his date riding a Ferris wheel when zombies storm the fair. Fast forward to a year in time where people are trying to survive. Dean, along with his brother is trying to save Val, the sister they knew nothing about. Dean has an experimental cure for her but the catch is he has to wait for her to turn before administrating said cure, but in the new world of `Zombie land' once someone has been infected then they are put to death before they have a chance to turn and infect others. Right before Val is slated to be executed Dean sneaks her out of the quarantined, top-security detention center to await her turning. Along the way they rescue a couple of girls, fight off numerous zombie attacks and just try to survive long enough to administer the cure that could save their sister.

Chrissy Peebles has outdone herself again with "The Zombie Chronicles (Apocalypse Infection Unleashed Series)". With this third series she has shown that she is a truly gifted, multitalented novelist. If this is the first book that you have read by Ms. Peebles than do yourself a favor, get back to the Amazon website and get yourself a copy of all of her books. Every one of the books in each of her series are different but highly entertaining and once you start one of her books you will not want to stop reading until that last page is turned. I started this book in the morning and before it was bedtime (to my disappointment) I had finished it. It was that difficult to put down. This is one author that will surely become a favorite of yours.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written June 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There's no reason to read this unless you're 12 yrs old or younger. The limited range of the characters and the laughable dialog would suit that age range, but it's definitely not for people who can actually read or would like a story that's interesting. There are very few books in this world I can't manage to finish, but this is one of them. It's not worth it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreadable August 13, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I could not make it through the second chapter. I love the Zombie genres, but this book is unreadable. The story is slow, the characters are not interesting and the dialogue is laughable. It’s my fault for not “Looking Inside” first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action Packed Zombie Story August 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like Zombie books, you'll love this one. It has great characters and lots of action. It's not too gory and is suitable for teens as well as adults. I loved the MC, but my favourite character was Val, the sister. Though she's been bitten by zombies and is slowly turning into one, she's feisty, brave and funny. Her two brothers, who she didn't know she had, are trying to rescue her from the Government, who are planning on euthanizing her before she turns into a zombie. The brother called Dean has come across a potion that can save her, but it won't work until she actually turns into a zombie. As Dean and his brother try to get their sister away from the authorities, they have to fight off zombies wherever they go. And Val doesn't just lie there and take it, she joins them in battle against the zombies, though she's already started turning into one herself. I loved the funny dialogue between the two brothers and their sister and the fast pace of the story. As always, great writing from this funny author.
