Authors Thom Brannan and D.L. Snell bring us the thrilling story of Pavlov's Dogs. The world has gone to hell in a hand basket in only a month. The dead are rising. With only one bite, scratch, or blood consumption they are infecting the living. Leaving them with the same fate of the walking dead. There is no hope in site for humanity. It has spread all around the world. The government has fallen. Armageddon is upon us, God save us.


Dr. Crispin, a brilliant scientist who is safely tucked away on a remote island, can not believe the rate at which the zombies are taking over the planet. He seems to take a personal interest in wanting to try to find surviviors. He has genetically engenierd military men and given the the ability to turn into dogs at will. The change is painful but the outcome is worth it. This was the reason he created the aptly named, Dogs. He wants to send them to the mainland and search for survivors. They must be out there somewhere. He needs to save someone.


Ken Bishop has been keeping himself and around 60 other people alive for one month. He can't believe it has only been a month sense he and his best friend Jorge were trying to get home after a long day of work but being haulted do to a massive bus crash on the interstate. He can still here his smart mouth friend yelling into the cell phone that the dead were getting up from the crash site and attacking other people. From that point on it had been Living vs Dead and wouldn't you know it looked like the Dead were winning. There has been no sign of this ending anytime soon. Until one day a large man shows up at the fortress Ken has set up for his people promising that there is an island where survivors have already started to set up camp.


Ken can't help to be wary of this man who claims to have the answer to all of their problems. In his experience if it sounds too good to be true... well it is. And, now he has seen this man change into a giant dog and chew through the zombies like it was nothing. An island with more men like Samson who can change at will, sounds like they would be safe.


Dr. Donovan has been watching the way Dr. Crispin has been hell bent on saving potential surviors on the mainland. He can not believe that Crispin would take resourses away from his people just to help other people. Things need to change before Crispin lets the new survivors on the island take over the place. And Dr. Donovan knows just how to do it...


Just when everything seems to be getting better, they get a whole lot worse. Ken had lost contact with the island. The Dogs have stopped coming to aid them. The resourses are getting scarce and Ken has a terrible feeling in his gut. Does Ken need the rescue evac or does he need to launch a rescue mission?


From the first sentence of this book it is a non stop thriller. Your heart will never stop pound in anticipation of what will happen next. Snell and Brannan, have you under a spell of frear and intrigue. Who is the good guy? Is there a good guy? How can these crazy people be stopped? How on earth is this going to end? From cover to cover it is a ride of suspense and horror. What a great ride! With the witty one liners and fun banter between characters it is a perfect balance of humor and horror. You will not be dissapointed!

    Too many stupids.

    A review is not supposed to be a summery of the book and way too many people don't seem to grasp that. Tell us what you thought of the book, that's what a review is.
