I picked this up as a recommendation from a zombie book club group on Facebook. I enjoyed it. It was a decent zombie book about a group of kids trying to make their way through a terrible disaster to find some semblance of normal and safety. It reminded me a little too much of Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry- the whole Japanese ninja, katana wielding, half brother thing...but the characters in Maberry's series are very well developed even from the first book, whereas the character development in Zombie Attack leaves a bit to be desired. It also seemed unlikely how many crazy situations these kids found themselves in- sometimes all in one day! However, this IS a zombie book so crazy is as crazy does. The book is entertaining enough for me to have started reading the second in the series. This is a fun read and it's worth the time investment.

This is a great book for any adolescent zombie enthusiast. As a former middle school/high schoolteacher, I know how difficult it can be to get young people to read. Many books just don’t hold their interest. Teen readers are too old for children’s books, but aren’t ready for full content adult books either.

Recently, great adolescent literature has emerged. Books like The Hunger Games and Divergence, not only draw young readers in, but also appeal to adult audiences. Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde is just such a book, interesting to adults and to young readers alike. The story will suck you in and you won’t want to put the book down!

The plot focuses around a heroic teen, Xander Macnamara who must cross dangerous territory in the post apocalypse world to be reunited with his military brother, Moto. Along the way, Xander, collaborates with other young travelers, twins Joel and Tom Parker, a young celebrity named Felicity Jane and his best friend Benji Jones.

What ensues is a wild roller coaster ride through the zombie infested world they live in.

The story is believable and the characters are well developed. Adult zombie lovers and adolescent readers will love this fast paced and heartfelt zombie tale.

You will love it no matter how old you are!

Straying from the usual plot of trying to create a stronghold and stand their ground, Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde takes us on the road. Trying to get to his brothers military base, Xander picks up new comrades along the way. In Sagliani's world, where zombies aren't the only monsters roaming the streets, Xander and his friends face neo-Nazis, marauders, cults and other evils of a fallen society.

Where all it takes is a single bite, this group of misfits suffer the loss of loved ones, childhood idols, and each other. Xander, jaded and suspicious, displays instincts and common sense far beyond his years. Trained by his soldier half brother, Moto, Xander is skilled in martial arts and wields my favorite weapon...the katana. Unassuming Benji looks to Xander for direction like a lost puppy dog. Xander takes Benji under his wing, protecting him from the torments of man and zombie alike. These two fast friends come across teen actress Felicity Jane. Having fallen victim to the child actor stereotype of substance abuse, Felicity Jane manages to pull herself together and team up with Xander and Benji.

No zombie book would be complete without a few religious zealots. Sagliani manages to sneak in my favorite apocalyptic quote "the dead shall walk the earth because Hell is overflowing and there is no more room for them". And doesn't it just figure that during the apocalypse, the only things left airing on TV are The Jersey Shore and Jackass!?

Appropriate for the Young Adult masses it was written for, Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde balances the right amount of horror and emotion. Sagliani manages to pull out another winner. The characters were relatable and genuine. The story was fast-paced and unexpected. I love that Sagliani hints at the possibility of zombies having a hive mind and working together. read my entire review at [...]

I had no idea that this was a YA zombie book and truly find it appropriate for any age group! I read so many books on the zombie apocalypse and was happy when I discovered this one! It is filled with action as we follow Xander on his journey to get to his older brother who is in the service after the virus had hit and was turning everyone into walking dead! Xander is joined by friends off and on during this crazy trip and must fight for his life and those of the ones he loves. The horror never lets up for him as he escapes one nightmare after another. This is definite must add to everyone’s TBR list if you are a fan of not just the zombie genre but of a well written story!

When the zombie apocalypse goes down, what's a 16-year-old kid with a katana and expert knowledge of martial arts to do but kick massive butt? Think of Devan Sagliani's ZOMBIE ATTACK! RISE OF THE HORDE as a PG-13 read. It introduces 16-year-old Xander Macnamara who in these parts is considered as coming from military royalty. At the Vandenberg Air Force base, Xander's older half-brother, Moto, is a respected marine corporal. Except that Xander is mighty irked at Moto for leaving him at the base whilst he got deployed on some urgent mission. I should mention that, at this stage, the world was already well into the zombie apocalypse.

Vanderberg Air Force base - approximately 9.2 miles northwest of Lompoc, California - was one of the last hold outs of human refuge. And maybe I just jinxed it, because DOWN! goes Vanderberg, its defenses breached by unrelenting zeds. Xander Macnamara barely escapes with his life, taking along with him that 12-year-old comic book geek, Benji, who's latched onto him like a puppy. Off they go, embarking on a nightmarish California odyssey as Xander makes his way to Ventura County, to the safe zone at Port Hueneme where he hopes to reconnect with his brother. Along the way, Xander and Benji pick up road companions, the most noteworthy of which is reality show teen starlet Felicity Jane (catch her on Star Dancing, now playing NOWHERE). Felicity and her wild mood swings.

Come to find, though, that Felicity, who does exhibit a surprising depth of diplomacy, yanks the sometimes unsubtle Xander out of deep dood0o. I had fun reading this book. I don't think too much of the title which is so very generic. One downnote is that I anticipated more of Xander and his martial arts in action than what we actually got.
