Book one of series one, Dead City, introduces us to Chris Collins who is about to lose every single thing he holds dear in his life. He is thrown into the middle of a zombie apocalypse with his new born daughter…only she is very special. Along the way, Chris meets some interesting people, one extremely likable pooch, and more than his fair share of people who have gone completely insane!
JJ Zep is sure to become one of your favorite zombie apocalypse writers because he has definitely made it to the top of my ‘Fave Horror Authors’ list. From the first chapter, I was amazed by the way the story was written. I could put myself right into Chris’s place and experience the emotions as he felt them. When all hell broke loose and Chris was puzzled and confused, I was puzzled and confused right along with him. When he was scared half to death (and I promise there were plenty of those moments!) so was I. I actually squealed out loud in the middle of the night at one point…my husband said I was no longer allowed to read Mr. Zep’s books at bedtime.
I can’t make this review much longer because I don’t want to include any spoilers, just rest assured that if you are looking for a new zombie adventure, THIS series is the one you should pick up right now! I am so glad I found this series and will suggest it to all my friends and family and to fellow horror story lovers.
I found the characters to be pretty strong in this story, especially the main character Chris. And the author shows his characters strengths very well. I was happy about that. I find this to be a unique tale because of Ruby a new born, and Chris's daughter. I won't go any further into that so as not to give anything away of the story.
I am guessing the plot of the story to a point is pretty much the same thing, like I said before what more can you say about a Zombie apocalypse, but this does have a nice spin on it. And hey I am new to the Zombie experience lol, so I am savoring the newness to me. Either way this is a 4 star read IMO and I recommend it to anyone who has a zombie sweet tooth.
Blood? Check. Carnage? Check. Infected? Check check check. I really enjoyed this quick read, and the characters within. The only issue I had was with the inconsistency with the *infected*. (Don't know whether to use zombie or not, because they aren't your typical zombie...you know, being able to talk and all....)
Which don't get me wrong, is an interesting turn of events. It was inconsistent in the respect of facing off with a sadistic grinning thing charging you wanted to rip the flesh off your body in one scene because they can't help themselves, and then in another Chris having a full out conversation with a thug while trying to save a woman and her children. This said thug has a group of infected behind him that follow his lead/orders. So if they are in control of there functions, why was Rosie, his dead wife who loved him, trying to eat his face off lol! Inconsistent. But a lot of fun. =D Would like to read the next for sure, have to know what the Man did with Ruby. Damn the Man, save Ruby! lol.
Also, kudos to Zep for making my 2 month old baby girl freak me out. Keep expecting to see teeth when she smiles at me... shudder.
