    This is a fantastic book.

    A few weeks ago when Jason Brant announced that his new book – Devoured, would soon be released, I was thrilled.

    All the other PA books I have read recently have ex-army/special forces, highly trained terminator types as the main characters – which is cool, we like these strong silent types. The main character in Devoured, on the other hand, is the ordinary guy in the street. A bit of a loser according to his ‘charming’ soon-to-be-ex-wife, and even to an extent, himself, but when the world starting crumbling, he became the person we will all want on our side when the odds are stacked against us.

    The zombies/creatures in this book are not zombies as we know them. These zombies are different in a few very important ways – they are absolutely terrifying.

    Devoured is the first book in the series - ‘The Hunger’ – no cliffhanger, thank goodness, just a very good book with lots of action, surprises, terrifying moments, and as we have come to expect from Jason Brant – humor. I realy enjoyed this book and look forward (impatiently) to the next book in the series.

    Devoured: The Hunger, Book 1 starts of kind of slow. Before the end of society, we meet Lance who is very down and out. A man that has been jobless for an extended period, who is in the midst of a divorce from a cheating wife. Everything soon changes when he takes a chance to save a woman from being hit by a car and knocking himself unconscious. Waking up to find that the hospital he is in has been quarantined by the CDC. The first of many adventures is his escape from the hospital so he can hide in his home. Soon the news channels stop broadcasting and then starts the real horror. Everyone that has been infected have risen into zombie like creatures that shy away from the sun and ravage at night. My thought was “Zombie vampires?”, but it gets worse. This is my favorite part of Jason Brant’s brainchild, the creatures and how the infected go from flu like symptoms, to fearsome zombie like creatures, to something that lives only in nightmares. Brant was able to create a very unique and refreshing take on a very heavily populated genre. Full of interesting characters, humor, survival, the systematic collapse of society. I will be back for more, I can’t wait to find out what Brant has in store for us.

    Wow. This was so well written and thought out, I said to myself several times, why isn't this a movie? I can't wait to get my hands on the second one to find out what happens to Lance, Cass, and the rest. I don't know how many are going to be in this series but I will be following as closely as I can. Jason Brant has become my new favorite male author.

    It could happen!

    One of the reasons I enjoy this book (and all of Jason's really) is because it is right on the edge of "wow, I can see this happening!". The characters are us, normal people thrown into bizarre situations. How would you cope, which character are you? Pick and choose because they are all there. So much fun to read, enough humor to lift the tension ever so slightly right before you are tossed back into the fray. Can't wait for the rest of the story.
