About the Author
A Facebook application once told Jesse Petersen that she'd only survive a day in a zombie outbreak, but she doesn't believe that. For one, she's a good shot and two, she has an aversion to bodily fluids, so she'd never go digging around in zombie goo. Until the zombie apocalypse, she lives in the Midwest with her husband and two cats. Find out more about the author at www.jessepetersen.net.

I didn't read book 1 of this series, and I didn't really need to. Book 2 never really made me feel like I missed a beat. Very entertaining and engaging ride with a great dose of comedy, action, horror, and a touch of romance. I highly recommend this series. I will soon read book 1 and anxiously await book 3.
These books reminded me a little of Resident Evil with a dose of comedy and a little less on the bad-assery clothes. Plus I really liked how in the first book, you can see the falling out on Sarah and Dave’s marriage yet when it came to fighting for their lives, they really came together to set aside their differences to survive. It’s good to know that they can prioritize correctly. The one thing that threw me off a little was the fact that in the first book when they were heading to their therapist for their counseling, they noticed that there weren’t any cars on a normally crowded highway and when they got there, the usual security guard was nowhere to be found. Everything just seemed off for them and they didn’t even realize zombies were about until they stumbled in on their therapist eating a fellow patient. My question is: how did they not know? I feel like news would’ve erupted with today’s technology if there were reports on someone eating someone else’s brains like the bath salt incident a few years ago in Maryland. It wasn’t until they got home and turned on the TV that they were like ohhhh, zombies! Did they not check their phones at all before or after their little therapist incident? I mean, sure the book was written back in 2010 but I’m pretty sure most people were checking their phones nonstop by then. I know I was. Anyways, that was really the only thing where I was like, seriously guys? Be a little quicker, okay?
I loved the plot throughout the series – the crazy religious cult in a casino (I mean, really, a casino??), the mad scientist with the crazy experiments (I did wonder what happened to all of the bionic zombies afterwards…did Sarah and Dave kill all of them? The book didn’t really say…), survival camps that were prison-like and all the military action in the last 1.5 books. There were certainly a lot of action going on and there was never a dull moment.
I came to really enjoy reading about the secondary characters especially The Kid and Nicole. They started off either a little annoying or too personal but they definitely grew on me. Even McCray with his English accent and drug addiction grew on me. I was a little sad and disappointed about Nadia but with these zombie apocalypses, I guess it’s bound to happen.
Overall, I really enjoyed the series. I found it highly entertaining and went through all of the books super quickly. The little epilogue at the end was great too – it really concluded the books. I just wish there was a little more info on Little Z.

Flip this Zombie focuses on what David and Sarah have been doing since the world fell apart and picked itself back up and moved on a little. Considering their zombie killing tactics learned early on, they've set up shop as the go-to-guys for all your zombie killing needs! The plot of Flip this Zombie dips into the dark reality that not all people are good - and if given the opportunity they could very well do some very bad things. But you have the ZombieBusters to call on for help, laughs and a decapitated zombie. There are some seriously awesome parts that I will not spoil, I'll just tell you to get ready to reread some parts and laugh!
I laughed. I got a little squeamish. And I think I'll be sleeping with the lights on tonight.

How is this book? Well you know how the first movie in a series is usually great and the second one is just kind of okay? Well that's how this book is, it's just okay. David and Sarah are still driving around and doing what they do best, crushing zombie skulls and getting paid for it. They stay at a college campus or something that is like a walled settlement that is safe. And honestly I'd like to know more about that place. That sounded interesting! I want to know more about the people there and what they did before the ZA and about life in that settlement!
But then the plot moves forward. Our two heroes are given a job by a scientist to bring zombies back alive so he can test his serums on them. If you have read any zombie books or watched any zombie movies, you know where this is going and what is going to happen, so it's very predictable. It's only mildly entertaining and it's not as good as the first book.
***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS***
All in all, this book is disappointing. The ending is predictable, the characters are pretty bland, the plot is recycled from many other books and video games, and it gives me very little desire to read the next one in the series. If you are bored and can get a copy from the library it helps to kill time with some zombies, but don't expect anything amazing.
