While the two short stories were aimed at horror-thriller readers, I felt they were more suitable for young readers who enjoy fast-pace, comic or video game style stories. I’d like to have seen more character development.
The author keeps the action moving fast and fluidly and the reader does find himself or herself immersed in the world of the game. Like a game, the action is nearly continuous and the stories move at a fast pace. There are a few sentences that could be phrased a little better or where more editing could help a bit, but the story moves you onward. The author definitely writes action and movement well.
Overall, I think fans of the GameLit genre and Resident Evil will be pleased. These stories are definitely worth putting the controller down and stretching your fingers for!
It’s a good thing in that it’s familiar and that makes it easier to get lost in the story, but it’s also bad in that it follows the same/similar pathways as the games. The saving grace with this is there are some variances to the plot, but not enough for it to be fresh for me. I think it’s important to point out this is only my opinion, and yours may be completely different.
In the end, it was nice revisiting an old favorite, even if it was through a different medium.
I have to say that this was more a verbal telling of a video game than a story. For those of us who remember the "old school" games, you will recognize a lot of them. I could easily pick out Frogger, Mario Brothers, Princess of Zelda and more. This was an interesting way to tell a story, but it made for a difficult read at times.
Also, as other reviews have pointed out, the editing could use some work. I have a hard time reading a book with a lot of grammatical and punctuation errors without having it interfere with my enjoyment of the book.
Mr. Medina is a great storyteller and I will definitely look for more books that he has written. I would only recommend this one for diehard zombie fans or diehard video game players.
If that wasn't bad enough, the rest of the book reads like it's a play by play of a knock off version of Resident Evil. It was just so bad that I got 20% in and said I can't do this anymore and quit reading.
Give this one a pass.

The second short, focuses on a parallel story. Luis, a 25-year-old rookie cop is sent to investigate a strange death in a mansion owned by the Hybrid Corporation.
There are fun twists at the end of each story.
I liked the way it was written from two different perspectives and enjoyed the twist at the end.
Some more character development would have been great but it was the action that drove this story forward- and there was certainly plenty of that!
The story reads for a YA audience and has all the necessary ingredients for this genre...but maybe there is a twist.
Worth a look for lovers of these horror tales.
