Review

I got hooked on the first book and ended up buying all three. Being scared has never been more fun. --PCElliott (Amazon Reviewer)

I rated this book a five out five. Everything in this book kept me on the edge of my seat. From the start of the zombie apocalypse to the end end of it. This book was so good it could have been made into a movie. If you like romance, laughter, blood and guts, and ZOMBIES then this is the perfect book for you --Kristine (Amazon Reviewer)

ONE OF THE BEST ZOMBIE BOOKS I'VE EVER READ:) Can't wait for the second book SECOND BOOK HERE I COME!!! --Naomi Laumoli

I read this book in less than a day. I am addicted to zombie apocalypse stories. However, the grammar and spelling were off on several occasions, some of the characters names were mixed up which was confusing at times. It seemed like no one proofread the book.

I love zombies...no...seriously, I LOVE ZOMBIES. I bought this book because I've read a few self pub'ed zombie apocalypse books and they were phenom. This one was so so. Now let me clarify. Great plot. Good characters. Not so awesome development or pacing. The premise is good, and you can tell the author has some raw talent. It needs a good, solid editing and some beta readers. The plot progression is startlingly rushed and the characters lacked depth. The bulk of this book is dialog and is really lacking in inner thoughts, feelings, and emotions of its characters. It almost would translate better as a screen play. I think that the author should consider a rewrite and re-release of this story, because it has some solid bones. It just needs the guts and blood and tissue of a solid zombie book. (Pun intended)

1.5 out of 5 stars.

I've been reading some pretty good but serious books recently, and wanted something quick and fun. Some of my online friends are almost zombie-obsessed so I thought I'd dip my toe in the waters with this one.

Blaugh. Not for me at all. Despite the violence, it was actually pretty boring. The protagonist was too good to be true, the romance was silly, and the zombies - I get it, they smell bad and they are rotting. But how many times do I have to have the same gore described over and over. Not interesting. There were a couple of mildly amusing bits about a manicure. There was some bad grammar. Whether it was intentional as character development or an editing mistake, I don't know but it didn't fit. Clean as far as profanity (at least I don't remember any but I wasn't on the alert for it) and no explicit sex.

And the ending...well there was no ending. There was instead a break in the story while I am supposed to go buy book 2. No.

So, I wanted something to empty my mind, and this worked about as well as a nap would have.

While I am not normally interested in any way in the Zombie Apocalypse, end-of-the-world, desolate earth stories, I decided to try this one because of the unique karate angle. That fascinated me and was different and unusual enough to pique my curiosity.

I found the story at first interesting, grabbing and keeping my interest; then intriguing, where was the author going and what was going to happen; and finally I became completely engrossed in finding out what each of the characters roles was going to be, how they were going to survive, how they would get along, and how they would fight. I became completely engrossed in these peoples lives. I loved the merry band of all-walks in life, normal people helping each other out and putting aside differences in a crisis.

I appreciated the author keeping the guts and gore descriptions to a minimum and instead focusing on the relationships. Despite some grammatical errors, I look forward to reading book two.

I just wish it had been longer. i understand the authors need to rope us in to buy the next book but in my opinion this one was just chopped off in the middle of a book not the middle of a series. I read this in an hour and a half. But it was very good! i will purchase the 2nd book but if it chops off like #1 did just to get me to buy another 190+ pages to read I will stop there. I do hope this turns out to be a nice series because the characters are fun and easy to get into. I didn't take the time to look and see what this author has written but I will, and will look forward to anything else she come out with.UPDATE I just noticed there are 5 books in the series and they are all longer than the first :) I am looking forward to reading them all!

It has been along time since I have read such an enthralling and captivating story. I have been sitting on the edge of my seat and holding my breath. Cassie is a warrior. Bryce and Austin, possible distractions. Sara and Kristie great support. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story and will be getting the next installment to find out if Cassie finds her family. WOW!

I read the first 3 books in the 5-book kindle series. (Yeah, I know. I'm not a quitter. I need to overcome that.) They were l o n g reads, & I skimmed a lot to get through them. I started book #4. The author takes a big left turn in book #4. Apparently, the zombie apocalypse she describes is due to (get ready) -- The Apocalypse! Other things I found irritating were: (1) "go with" -- I hope I never hear those 2 words alone together again! Why not just say "go with you" or "go with me", etc. I know this is a regional thing, but the author used it more frequently as she moved the story forward. That, & the demon/devil, annoyed me enough that I put the book down. I don't recall any references to religion in the first 3 books! Well, pardon me, as I said earlier, I skimmed through the first 3 books. A lot. So, maybe I missed religious references? (2) Dead bodies become putrid pretty quick, but the zombies in this book are described as putrid as soon as the person dies. Google (research) "when do zombies start to stink?" please! (3) Luke. His character is not very developed, the little girls are crushing on him, then BOOM! He's gone. Oh well, the girls have a new young guy to moon over. Also, the new guy has been bitten, but decides a road trip in the opposite direction of the CDC/Atlanta is in order! He can become a zombie later. Okie-dokie! (4) Why would anyone who develops immunity go out & kill zombies, or sneak away for that matter? Hello! Mankind needs you to develop a vaccine or cure. (5) How do all these people manage to lose each other geographically, then magically find each other again? Multiple times. Oh, they have mad skills! Whoo-hoo! (6) Why divide the food among the survivors? There's a kitchen in that hotel.Read more ›
