Editorial Reviews


"I've been following this series for over a year, and I Zombie I is one of the most inventive zombie series I've ever read. The pages keep flipping and the plot twists and turns. By the end of the third book, I had no idea what to think. That's a good thing." Thea Gregory from Forget The Box

"Jack is a brilliant writer and he can make your head spin with his storytelling wiles. Jack tells us his take on Zombies without the feeling like we are being slammed by yet another Zombie book or movie." -- Albert Robbins III

"...zombies make fantastic targets for slightly off kilter humor, and no one (that I have ever read anyways) captured that essence quite like Jack Wallen. Opting for sarcasm over pure terror made this one of the funniest books I have read in a while, and in doing so, captured a place in my zombie hall of fame. No worries though... this book was NOT all about blood slushys and sound bombs, there WAS a deeper story intertwined, one of hope, love, and the recognization of loneliness, making this a well rounded and spectacularly written piece of literature." Kindle Obsessed.

About the Author

Jack Wallen is the new name in horror. His works span genres and weave evil, conspiracy, and fear into nightmarish worlds. Jack has been given the title "Zombie King" by his readers and fans. He didn't garner that title by dining on the brains of helpless victims. It was only after writing until his fingers and mind were nothing but meat for the beasts that he became a master of the zombie genre. During that haunted hay ride Jack produced works of fiction enjoyable by not just zombie fans, but anyone daring to take a peek into what might possibly become of humanity. Of course, being of the insane writer clan, Jack isn't just happy with the penning of zombie fiction. Oh no, the nightmare does not end there. Like the late, great Freddy Mercury, Jack wants it all -- so, he will continue twisting the horror genre to meet his disturbed mind as well as write his Fringe Killer and Screampark series, and his joyous celebration of all things diverse -- Shero. For his inspiration to begin reading and writing, Jack thanks the ever-incredible Clive Barker for penning in a genre with words of grace and horror.

In mere seconds, most of the world's population has been destroyed and died. That is bad enough, but a majority of these unlucky people have gotten up and begun walking. Unluckier still is our protagonist Jacob Plummer, a reporter untouched by this mystery virus. I say unluckier because Jacob is now forced to attempt to survive in this new world and he has taken it upon himself to find out the cause for this catastrophe.

Unfortunately, Plummer is soon infected and his search for the truth is now filled with an urgency to find a cure or at least ease the pain. This search brings forth information that is fraught with deadly intrigue....deadlier than anyone could have ever imagined.

With new friends, Jacob helps to fight off the growing undead horde in
hopes of saving himself and the planet from the rot growing within.

I Zombie I by Jack Wallen is funny, sad, tragic and a much deeper story than it may be given credit. Jacob Plummer, journalist turning zombie, offers seeks out that tiny a bit of hope for a world that has been destroyed by science. I liked Jacob, he was a good guy, someone who I think I might actually have enjoyed having as a friend. He had a bit of an agenda initially, but that agenda began to change as he saw what he was facing. He had flaws, some he admitted to having others we the readers can pick out, which means he was realistic and believable. Something I like in a character. Jacob's love interest Bethany was a kick...I liked her spunk and how she was a fiery redheaded nerd. (Nerds rule!) Oh and people, including fictional characters, who scream all the time during a zombie apocalypse where you have to be quiet, need to be shot. I'm not getting killed because you can't keep your mouth shut.

I read Mr. Wallen's I, Zombie, I, in one sitting. I've never been a fan of zombies, because well, they just stumble around trying to eat brains. Not exactly what I find interesting. I'm also not much of a horror fan.

But, I found I couldn't put this book down. The book is told from the first person perspective of Jacob, a self-depracating journalist with a brutal wit and interesting perspective on life. I found his journey fascinating, more so, because I knew what would happen: he was going to get bitten and turn into a zombie. I wondered how Mr. Wallen would handle this change, and I have to admit, he did it very well. The image of Jacob starting to drool and how he saw others watching him, waiting for the change, waiting basically for him just to be done with, was very poignant. Mr. Wallen masterfully conveyed the way people around Jacob changed as Jacob fell to the virus. What started out as a somewhat snarky-hero-zombie-book was transformed into something a little deeper and more disturbing by the addition of such depth to the world and people around Jacob. If you didn't care for Jacob at the beginning, you were rooting for him by the end.

All in all, this was a well-written treat, and I look forward to delving into the next book in the series. I'm so glad Wallen didn't take the stereotypical route of drooling-zombies-chasing-the-survivors. He managed to convey a fresh perspective on a well-beaten concept.

We all read zombie books, get a lick out of the fore and always thinking what would we do? That's the fascination with this lore. However jack takes it to a whole other level making this series BELIEVABLE. He has created a way that makes you say hey, finally this is a way zombies could become real. Also who will it advantage, who will be hero's, how far will everyone go. I was totally hooked. I got my 32 year old son hooked, and we just can't get enough. I think the first book is still free on kindle and if you got to r Wallens website you can grab his new book (different story) free also. This are totally worth kindle price as well as paperback. I mail my son the paperbacks and I have no problem buying these twice they are so good. I even emailed the author with a suggestion and he was kind enough to write back. Nice guy and uber creepy author. Buckle up once you start you won't want to out them down. Tammy & Wes

I'll admit, I'm not much of a horror fan but this book was different. Yeah it's about zombies but it's quirky. I like quirky. If you liked the movie Zombieland, you'll like this book. There's lots of moaning and screaming and laughs. The beginning was a little slow for my speed but once you're through that, the book moves at a nice pace. The ending sets it up for the sequel.

Being that I'm from Hawaii, I personally loved the poi reference in the story. You'll have to read the book to figure out what poi and zombies have to do with each other.

there are a lot of slow moments, but for the most part it's a solid storyline with enough action to keep you reading. the author drags a few things out and tries to create tension where there isn't any sometimes. part of the problem with this book is the characters just don't have any real personality. just when you thought there would be a character breakthrough something happened to derail it and you were left knowing just a tiny amount more than you already knew. when it comes to a zombie book/movie, i want to be invested in the well being of the characters, but here, i didn't really care what happened to them.

overall it's a good, light read that kept me going to the end, but not strong enough to make me find the sequel.
