    The action scenes in this novella read like a crazy rollercoaste

    The action scenes in this novella read like a crazy rollercoaster ride. Human cyborgs, zombies, bitter exes with armed lackeys--this story has them all, complete with the threat of total destruction via military bombing--and the clock is ticking! To say it keeps you on the edge of your seat is an understatement.




    I like couples-with-a-history stories, and given the space limitations in a novella, couples with a prior relationship often feature prominently in them. Bring on the angst and drama! This story definitely delivers on it, though a bit too much of it is revealed through Ceri's internal dialogue, which definitely leans toward the melodramatic. Between it and the long stretches of bordering-on-soliloquy internal and external dialogue, readers are left with a bit of a "feast or famine" feeling. Over-the-top action! Long internal monologue. More action! Scene where Ceri reveals every single detail of her past eight years to Jason in a few short pages. More balance was definitely needed.




    For all that was going on here--or maybe because of it--parts of the resolution feel rushed. Larger-than-life antagonists are quickly dispatched. (I kept waiting for one of them in particular to show up later on, surviving against all odds much like the Twinkies in the Chevy Silverado Superbowl commercial. It didn't happen.) Seemingly insurmountable relationship hurdles suddenly smooth out. Ceri and Jason go from haven't-spoken-in-years to HEA in less than twenty-four hours; even during a possible zombie apocalypse, it's a bit much.




    In a nutshell: an entertaining read, but too uneven to be altogether satisfying. C.




    I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    This was a good quick read. I read it straight through in less than 2 hours. The title was misleading because what I got wasn't what I expected based on the title. All in all it was a good book.

    If you like a Zombie type of book this one is for you, if not do not bother with it because that to me is the main focus.

    Ceri always wished that Jason would come back even though he walked out on her 4 years ago, 3 Days before the wedding. Out of heartache and loneliness she moved on and married Russell and had her daughter Skye. Ceri and Jason go to talk to her ex husband to find out that her ex had turn jason brother into a zombie. All hell breaks loose and one of the zombie breaks her exes neck while there running to the safe room. The monitors show that zombies are going after everyone they can and turning them, they call for help. Watching the monitors, they see that Ceri daughter and mother are there and they have to fight zombie to get them back to the safe room. Once they are safe Ceri and Jason make up for lost time.
