This story is grounded in more reality than any zombie book I’ve read.
Moms against Zombies is a complex tale of various families dealing with something out of the twilight zone: real Zombies are invading the country and multiplying in horrific speed. So the various families try to move to a more isolated place to survive the apocalypse.
While some believed it a hoax, hired actors dressed as zombies, so thieves could steal valuable data, matters quickly prove it is a real viral contagion. (As in REALITY BITES!)
When the mothers realize something isn’t right, and sluggish people are creeping them out, they grab their kids and drive home. And while the cities are trying to downplay the event, the disturbances they’ve seen with their own eyes, and calls from their husbands send them in hyper-protect-the-children mode, and they head to more isolated areas.
Lesson to learn: Don’t get between a mom and her children. She will protect them with lethal force. It doesn’t matter if you are a zombie or a living human who just wants to rob her of the items she needs to keep her children safe. Either way, she will fight back.
Honestly, this was an engaging, well written, and a realistic scenario of a viral contagion that takes over a body in seconds. And as in common in real life, the ‘truth’ keeps changing as well, as they dig deeper and learn more about their situation.
But be warned, this book seems to stop mid-story with the promise of the conclusion coming in the next book.
Due to the lack of an ending, I can’t give it more than four stars right now. It was well written, amazingly authentic, but it is incomplete. However, I look forward to book 2 to find out what actually has happened and hopefully get an HEA.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
A couple technical issues: the 1st Person POV story is told in present tense, which is odd and gives off the impression that we the readers are reading the minds of these two mothers as the events are currently happening. However, there were a few moments when something occurred in 3rd Person POV without either character witnessing it, so the narrator is not exactly established in this book. Also there are times when many side characters come into play simultaneously, and it's hard to keep track of who everyone is.
All that aside, I did enjoy the progression of the unfolding events, and although there was little action, you could tell this story is almost a prequel to a much bigger cataclysmic event that has yet to happen. This is more like a story about the preparation of such an incident, as well as the psychological effects it could have on everyday people. Needless to say I am intrigued and curious as to how the story will continue.
