THE must have Zombie Book this Spring!!!

Bowie Ibarra's "Down the Road- The Fall of Austin" is by far Bowie's best book to date! This chronicle of the fall of Austin to the Zombie Apocolypse is a nail biting page turner! You can really see Mr. Ibarra's maturation as an author on every page of this book! Bowie is definatley at the top of his game with this fantastic tale! The author brings in a lot of characters and sub plots in this book and pulls it off with extreme success! From the development, to the action and gore, Bowie seems very comfortable in his narrative. You'll be sucked in from page one and find it hard to put the book down. It is a healthy length and I read it in 2 nights, it is just that good! If you only read one book in May, IT MUST BE THIS BOOK!

As with every book I have ever purchased from Permuted Press, this one is a knockout! This publisher has a real knack for offering writers and stories that are some of the best out there. Another great PP project on the table for us voracious fans of Zombie and Apocolyptic fiction!

Almost every chapter was a sex scene. Dont get me wrong i love sex as much as the next guy but seems this author is pre-occupied with sex on the brain. Dont get me wrong all 3books were a good read but the over abundance of sex kinda made me wish i hadnt invested in the trilogy ( in hardcover even) i thought it would be a good zombie trilogy untill every other chapter had sex in it. Hmmm its a wonder they even had the strength to fight the zombies after all the sex they were having. I wouldnt purchase this trilogy again, nor would i recomend it to anyone. Seems Mr Ibara may hav had a lack of something growing up and is writing his fantasies down on paper. Shame on permuted press for publishing this whn they plainly state an over abundance of sex wont get you published.
DONT WASTE YOUR TIME!!!!!!! THEY SPEND MORE TIME HUMPING THAN FIGHTIN Z,s

    This book is like most zombie books but it deals with the charactors life during the initial events.

    It was a nice quick read and I will buy the next book to see what happens to the people, and who makes it.

    I really liked this book. It was just scary enough, and had great characters.

    I love this series! Yeah it is different, with the way the characters react to things, but not everyone is going to have the reaction that everyone wants or expects. I know Mr. Ibarra's stories have only gotten better since, because I have read some of the others in this series before this.
