This fictional horror story is about a virus that goes rampant but this isn't any virus, this virus turns the victims into zombies that have the need for human flesh. These zombies are called "creepers" by the survivors and they are savage and mindless, at least that is what the survivors thought. They observed a change in them, they seem to be learning, making some intelligent decisions or was it just some ancient instinct taken over? The creepers are everywhere and as the virus spreads either people become creepers or are eaten by them. The only chance of survival is to find a place that isn't totally populated. The less people means the less creepers.
A small group of young adults that are either related to one another or are friends try and make their way to such a place. They have a small group of children with them and on the way they rescue Dr. Thorn, who I want to say is the main character with certain members of the group of young adults as secondary characters. As they make their way across the state they happen to spot an old fort which was turned into a tourist spot but none the less it is still a fort with walls around it and would be a safe place to rest. They were not aware the fort was already occupied by people, some of which were mad and who had other plans for the children which were even more chilling than death itself. The group must now sneak the children out and get away but how can they when there is such a small number of them verses the fort full of people. If they ever got out with the children, will they ever make it to a safe place or will it all be for nothing and they fall victim to the zombies themselves? I am afraid you will have to read the story yourself to find out.
I totally recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of the horror genre. I know there are a lot of zombie stories out there just as there are a ton of werewolf stories but I assure you there are none like this. This author is in a class very few achieve, right up there on top. Hats off to the author, great story!
In most ways this is a pretty by-the-books take on zombie survival fiction. The story has a good sense of suspense and drama, which is necessary for good zombie survival stories. There were a couple of unexpected developments in the story. Unfortunately the action does let up in certain parts, so there are sections that are pretty dry. Still, the good outweighs the bad there because the slow bits don't occur often. The writing is pretty basic; not flowerly or particularly bad, just straightforward. I'd recommend this to fans of zombie literature, survival fiction, etc. Although it's not too fancy, it was still an enjoyable diversion.
I can not believe how much I enjoyed this book! Never having read any zombie books prior to this one (they always sounded so boring), I can't say, "I love zombie books!" with any honesty, but I can certainly say that I liked Mr. Esposito's zombie book enough that I'm going to purchase Book 2 of The Creepers Saga as soon as I'm done writing this review.
I'm not sure what I expected; perhaps a bunch of senseless blood & guts killing with some creep factor—the equivalent of a slasher flick. What I got was a really well-written book with characters I actually felt as if I knew. There was, of course, a core group which provided the bulk of the storyline, but I never got the feeling that extra characters were thrown in simply to provide another creative death scene. Even the characters who were in for only a few chapters had depth and interesting back stories, and I became attached enough to feel a pang at their deaths.
There's a lot of soul-searching and tough decision-making, and the "right" choice is not always the easiest one to make, nor does it always result in 100% A-OK happily-ever-after moments. It doesn't even necessarily end with a "Yeah! We showed 'em!" moment. It simply reflects real life journeys, struggles and their consequences—with zombies, of course.
