Lazarus has a strong zombie element in the plot. However, it's not just a zombie book. There's also a paranormal experience, which was a pleasent surprise. I've rarely ever read the two paranormal types in the same book, and really enjoyed it. I thought it brought something new to the genre, and kept it interesting. Lori Titus pulls off the combination with her phenomenal writing style. It didn't feel like there was too much going on at all, like it usually does when I've seen other authors attempt it.
Typically, I hate instalove in a book. It's one of my biggest pet peeves. There is some instalove in Lazarus between two characters. At first, it annoyed me at the beginning. However, the further I got into the book, I realized Lori Titus wrote in a way that it works really well. Not only did it seem necessary to the plot, but it seemed natural. It wasn't the forced instalove that's in most books. She made me look at instalove in a completely new way.
Lazarus was one of the best horror books I've read this year. It made me see several aspects of the horror genre in a new light. I look forward to making my way through Lori Titus's back log of books that she's previously released. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a short, yet captivating, horror read.
Luella Pembry waltzes into the town of Lazarus, challenging the people's laws and the heart of Sheriff Benjamin Drake. She's haunted by a difficult past and frequent, chilling warnings from the apparitions she sees. Little does she know that Sheriff Drake has his own supernatural abilities too. But Luella has other worries--her visit to Lazarus involves the rising dead and the dark secrets behind their return.
Luella and Ben embark through treacherous grounds to discover the root of Lazarus' evil and lay to rest their own personal demons. With a well-rounded ending full of surprises and twists, and a distinct plot, Lazarus also delivers tasty zombie lore mixed with a little witchcraft, all occurring in 1896 in a small, western town, one that is full of magic, death, and corruption.
This book is a fun, fast read with a variety of genre that will appeal to many readers.
Lori Titus takes a different approach to our perception of zombies!
Louella Pembry comes into a town called Lazarus. She comes to help a town that didn't know there was a way to fix their problem!
Knowing the towns past, does it hinder or help Louella?
Things that go bump in the night, ghosts that roam, Louella can see and talk to them and for them.
Sheriff Drake and Jasper Cole have ties to Louella that neither is aware of, it takes a little wooden casing, the size of a book to bring them all together.
come along for the ride, it may change your thoughts on things......
If this understated, hidden little gem of a book had been any longer I think I would have had a heart attack. With a strong female lead, romance, retribution, zombies, a necromancer, and enough jump scares to rival any haunted house Lazarus is a crowd pleaser!
The setting itself becomes a secondary monster of the story, the town of Lazarus, is in the middle of the desert and the year is 1869. In stark contrast to being barricaded in a mall with enough food and ammo to last a few months or so, image living in town where supplies came by train and smoke signals was a more reliable source of information than telegraphs.
This is a period piece and Titus gets it right by playing it close to the belt. The creatures rising in Lazarus aren't the result of Solanum or the T-virus the undead are returning with the help of a necromancer ... and the person who rides into town to save the day is a woman. Her name is Luella Pembry and she is a strong branch of a family tree whose roots were planted in Creole soil.
The happy ending you'll be holding your breath for is satisfying until of course you realize its no ending at all it's the beginning.
