What I cannot look past is a woman dislocating her shoulder, having someone force it back in place, and then carrying on as if that wouldn't cause everlasting pain and damage. Did the author never think to at least research what happens when a shoulder is dislocated? Am I the only reader to have ever dislocated a shoulder? Let me describe what happens...
OMG <rolling around on the ground screaming>
Let me describe what happens when it is either GENTLY manipulated back into the socket or you're a lucky cow and all of that rolling around pops it back in...
OMG <rolling around screaming>
When the ambulance comes to take you to the hospital and they stand you up to walk to the ambulance?
OMG <standing around screaming> <then they give you morphine and the screaming calms down a little>
For the next three days...
OMG <less rolling around screaming but you have to learn to brush your hair and your teeth and do everything else with the other arm while trying not to scream in pain.>
If you don't have physical therapy you spend the next 6 months trying to get out of bed without agony every time you put pressure on that arm. After about a year, you can almost lift your arm over your head without disgusting crunches, popping, and, you got it, screaming in agony. Almost.
Sooooooooooo...the author didn't even bother to look up something as important as the consequences of dislocating, or even partially dislocating a shoulder, and certainly didn't bother to look up how long it takes to heal. There's no bashing around with a sword, there's no climbing, or swinging your arm around because it's just hanging there, like a dead thing for about 6 months without PT. The fact that this isn't mentioned, at all, once she goes to the vampire hangout, where she promptly washes her hair with both hands (I almost died laughing at the stupidity there, no, no you don't get your arm up that high once you've ONLY JUST DISLOCATED IT.) I stopped reading it and probably won't go back to it.
If you can't respect your craft and your readers enough to do a little research you don't deserve to call yourself a writer. The rest of that book is impossible because the heroine is now hobbled for at least 6 months. Good job.
The story is a typical post-apocalyptic story where vampires have taken over the world and killed everyone. Except seemingly the hero and her mother and brother. The problem with this is that she begins by saying it’s a viral out break and then says that crosses and holy water work on the vampires. That’s illogical, either it’s a viral outbreak or vampires are the result of demons and magic. Can’t have it both ways, it doesn’t make any sense.
At one point in the story the main character is worried that the vampires are going to get into her bunker where she and her mother and brother have been living for the totality of the outbreak. So in the whole time the outbreak had occurred which was seemingly over quite a few months, this had never occurred to her. Except she keeps saying how protected they are in said bunker, so then what are you worried about? This seemed like a lame way to try and create tension where there wasn’t any.
The main character in the story does a lot of things that don’t make sense just from a common sense point of view and the world is painted very illogically. So I guess they have that in common. I really would hope no one would read this book. It is much of the same thing that is all ready out there, except that it executed incredibly poorly.
