"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.

Wallen does a great job crafting this narrative. He doesn't waste any time, plunging straight into the meat of the book (forgive the pun). He does outstanding work, placing the reader into the frantic confusion of the story while later on, back-filling with exposition and explanation. It's a good balance and there wasn't ever really a point where I felt like the story was dragging or being held up. There was good information being given in a fashion that felt natural and with a ton of danger for the characters.
I don't want to go into a lot of detail about the plot without spoiling anything so I will just say that I liked how Wallen has a take on zombies that feel fresh and different to me, instead of just another iteration of a certain TV show that sounds like Stalking Fred. He also has a striker original and fresh voice which he brings to bear on this story.
I definitely recommend this one. It's a great, quick and entertaining read. I read most of it during a three hour plane flight and it definitely helped the time go by. Zombies may be starting to feel passé or overdone but I felt like this book still manages to have an original perspective.
Well-written and wonderfully developed characters make this book one of the best I've read in this genre.
