Zombies that aren’t what they seem plus add in some strange magic. Talk about a great combination!
I’ve not read many zombie books that aren’t, well, gross. I’ll be honest. Most zombie books are gore and yucky stuff. Not so with this book. Sam Cheever manages to make zombies cool and not so…Night of the Living Dead. Cheever’s writing was great. It flowed well and kept me entertained throughout. I had to know what would happen next for Audie and Yeira.
Audie…seems like maybe an odd name for a hero, but no. It fit him perfectly. In fact, I’d like to find an Audie of my own. I could see him in my mind and he was handsome. Oh and protective. Cheever wrote him sympathetically, but oh so alpha. I’m smitten.
Then there’s Yeira. She’s a kick butt chick. I loved her from page one. Yes, she’s a zombie, but there’s more to her story than meets the eye. I can’t reveal all, but suffice it to say, she’s my favorite character and one worth checking in to.
Now, I will caution this is book 2 of the Apocalyptic series, but don’t let that stop you. This was a great standalone book and I recommend it. There’s heat, heart and lots of action.
