Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Thank you for your interest in SHTF. This book is a little different than the other books in the NOLA Zombie series. SHTF is from Romeo's POV. Romeo is introduced in RUN, but isn't a main character. I was fascinated with Romeo's back story and wanted you guys to experience why Romeo is the way he is in the three books that focus on Alexis, Blake and Zach. Please note- this book is different than the other three books...Romeo does not find romance in this book, only zombies.

About the Author

Gillian Zane is the author of the NOLA Zombie series. Zane is the pen name of a prominent blogger in the publishing industry, which will remain a mystery unless you Google it. Since she can remember her goal has been to become Master of the Universe and has decided to focus first on the literary world. Things are progressing nicely. 

Zane has been a freelance writer for the last ten years and has published a few non-fiction works, none of which was very exciting. Zombies are much more exciting and a way for her to combine her two current obsessions, hot boys with guns and Doomsday Prepping. When she isn't stockpiling MREs (Meal's Ready to Eat) or researching how to build a cistern on a budget, she's taking care of her little family and exploring the city that she loves, New Orleans. You can find Gillian Zane on twitter @GillianZane.

Gillian Zane is one of those writers that can spin gold out of anything. SHTF was an insider's look into Tim "Romeo's" life and how things came to be.

I have to say I'm an Army girl that's fallen in love with a bunch of Marine's, and any Army girl will tell you that's hard as hell to do (no offense to my Marine's I love all of my military men!) Gillian Zane has this incredible talent for wielding emotions, so much so that she makes you feel each and every gut wrenching emotion as it happens in the story. SHTF brought me to my knees, ripped out my heart, and shattered my insides so many times I don't think I have any tears left to cry.

Romeo's character is so complex and so incredibly deep there are truly not any words to describe the level of emotion that Gillian Zane evokes in a reader as she brings this honest to god "Hero" to life. And if I had to choose a hero out of any of the characters she has written Romeo definitely has my vote. Gillian really broke the emotional mold in this book we get a glimpse of Martinez again seeing him will bring the water works back all over again and make you miss him all over!

The fact that we get to see what started our little apocalypse from the beginning is something that I'm loving. Incredible thought and detail went into it and the Costco scene...wow...literary genius! Lookout World Gillian Zane is here and she's taking over. You want to know what the next big thing is don't look any further she's arrived.

I was surprised when I got an email from Gillian with her latest book in it before Christmas time. Unfortunately, I was extremely busy and couldn’t get it done by release day, but I did read it and now the review.

Romeo is one of he survivors we have gotten to know in the three books that came out first. This one rewinds to the time right before the zombie outbreak. The story opens up with Romeo and Lucas Martinez finishing their shift protecting a young actress, Selena Devay. A Friday off in the Big Easy and the guys want a drink and a good time, but they catch Lena trying to leave the hotel alone. Turning things around, they accompany her to the bar where she is meeting someone. Thus they get their beers when a woman approaches Romeo for a good time. All during this there are news reports about a virus taking over a few cities. The men know the news and government isn’t telling the truth, but it’s not there yet.

So let’s just say this isn’t a romance at all, but it is in the series where I just finished a romantic triangle. This is Romeo’s story of how he connects with his family and makes his way to the rendevous with the team he works. This isn’t a romantic story, but there is love for a younger sister, an older brother and his wife: family. What would you do for them to protect them.?

It’s not terribly long and you know Romeo’s story from this and the other stories. I am hoping get more of his story. Someone died in the last book, but I will totally admit I can’t remember the name of who, so I am desperately hoping it wasn’t Romeo. I don’t think it was. So I can only hope he finds love in the not to far future and can find comfort.

A sad story with some adrenaline rushes to keep you guessing what will be next. It’s a good pre-story for the NOLA Zombie series.

Not sure where all these 5 star reviews came from. I gave it three stars just for being able to see how Romeo was before the zpoc, even if he wasn't real likable. His sister was an awful person. Wow, can't stress enough that she made spoiled rotten brats look like angels. Then add in her acting completely stupid during aa virus outbreak and you get a girl who thankfully got what she asked for. Sounds harsh, but man did I hate that character. I never saw a single redeeming trait in her. This story really was a bunch of people acting like idiots. It was the start of the zpoc in this universe, but you won't miss anything by skipping this. My guess is the next book will have Lena, but again, you really won't miss anything by not reading their tiny bit of interaction. In fact, you may like it better not reading that she saw him ducking out for a quicky with a chick he just met. They had a few small conversations which were just cordial and she went her own way. No passion or heated looks. Not at all what I would write for a set up to a future romance, unless they hit it off because he changed so much from the guy she met. I spent the read railing against all the characters I disliked, which was most of them. Really, save yourself the angst!

I absolutely love this series. It has the perfect combination of zombie horror, romance and sex. Ms. Zane, as long as you keep writing them, I'll keep reading them. It's one of few series that I still get excited about when new releases are coming. Can't wait for the next.

5 stars to this prequel to Zane's NOLA Zombie series! This book is more action packed than sexy but I think it's my favorite out of them all. And I love that it uses a different main character to tell the story of how New Orleans became over run with Zombies. Great Read!

This is a great start to another great zombie series. Romeo is n ex military turned security who gathers his family and head to the security compound. Along the way their is trouble and he loses one of his family members. I recommend starting with this book before moving on the the next in the series and if you like zombie books then I highly recommend reading this series.
