WARNING! Euphoria-Z is NOT for the timid!

"Crazy! Can't wait for the next one!!!!"

"while there is plenty of putrid zombiness here there is soooooooo much more!"

"It's nice to find a new idea on how people came to be zombies."

Civilization shuts down as the world's population fills the streets in a deadly orgy. They feel only pleasure and never pain, even as they are injured, maimed, and mutilated. The few who remain unaffected struggle to survive, unaware that things are about to get unbelievably worse.

Cooper is among the few survivors of a conspiracy to depopulate the world. One week ago, college was his biggest concern. Now he is on a perilous journey to find his sister. But zombies aren't the only threat he faces. In this nightmarish reality, the living can be far more dangerous.

Euphoria Z is NOT for the weak stomach! Not only is the gore described in amazing detail, if bad language, racial slurs, and a constant barrage of other negative terms are a turn off for you… then you should stay away. As a matter of fact, I would suggest that you not read the excerpt either…. just stop now. If you can stomach all of that, then proceed. This book started off a little slow, I did find myself struggling through the first couple of chapters trying to get a strong grasp on what was going on. It felt like we were being built up to some big event and then let down; but there was another event waiting in the background. I was left a little confused about that whole situation; but take a look below for a deleted scene provided by the author that explains in more detail what went down. I loved all the characters….even the ones I hated. Character development is done directly through the dialogue. You get a true sense of each character based off the first conversation they have. In a world that has been devastated by God only knows what… there are two types of people left. Those who are looking to band together with other survivors and make the world as livable as possible and those who just don’t give a damn anymore and want to party…because obviously the end of the world is already upon us. The latter group of people seem intent on destroying everyone else. We follow the stories of what start out to be random strangers, but in the end all their stories converge. Every action leads them closer to one another. If you are expecting a hero with a heart of gold, you won’t really find one in this book (even though Cooper and Jeff come closest). Aside from being a little slow getting out the gate, the only thing I can come up with that might be a negative selling point is the length. It’s much longer than most apocalyptic/zombie stories and there are some parts that tend to run on. And if you are a fan of a singular point of view, the changing of POVs, sometimes mid paragraph, might throw you a little bit. Otherwise this is a great read! For those over 17 I would highly recommend this post-apocalyptic zombie story! The ending will leave you yearning for more!

I tried to read this but it quickly fell apart for me. Started off decent, the first couple pages but then started to read like an outline. It became jumbled and rushed with no details. In less than 5 pages there is a failed presidential speech, angry reporters, an asteroid hits and some billionaires setup the apocalypse of the world but it fails as the virus turns them and many others to zombies. It was so rushed and jumped all over the place in way too short of a time-span. maybe it gets explained later, I do not know. with over 400 pages I hopes so but with how those pages were written and displayed I was sadly utterly turned off by the book.

You’ll get a strong dose of zombie gore in this book. Nothing you can’t handle though. I was all excited about the comet that was going to strike. Then, once it hit, I was as disappointed as the characters. Nothing happened. But then it did. Just not how I expected. People got happy, strangely happy, then they died horribly and rose again. The author got creative with this. It’s nice to find a new idea on how people came to be zombies. You’re then in the beginning of the apocalypse, but the story focuses mostly on after it starts. You follow the characters as they first realize what’s happening and then through their struggles to survive. There are lots of bad guys. Still trying to figure out why the rich dudes wanted to end the world. One thing I had a problem with was the switching POVs. They happened suddenly and sometimes I had to go back and read again to see who I was reading about. Just got a bit confusing at times. This is not a quick read. It took me several sittings to finish it. Not that I was bored by any means. The author gave me plenty of action, great characters to care about, and lots of zombies. I just needed to sleep sometime. The only thing I’ll tell you about the ending is that it isn’t over. I recommend this to anyone looking for a good zombie story. I received this book for my honest review.

While this was longer than a normal thriller, maybe longer than it needed to be, it was still a lot of fun and as realistic as a zombie book can get. Despite the description, I wouldn't consider this any more graphic than the typical apocalyptic tale. The gritty and far-from-perfect heroes are a breath of fresh air in this genre. Don't expect some super warrior with a heart of gold to step in and save the day. You've got pop-culture obsessed, entitled kids and wannabe thugs trying to survive the end of the world. If you're tired of zombie hordes, rest assured they're merely a backdrop. Not the real threat. This story is all about rebuilding and the struggle among the survivors. Without giving anything away, the fighting is not random. My only real complaint is the length. Euphoria borders on being an epic saga. There's so much action and conspiring in here that I'd expect a 2 or 3 book series. Still, a fun, ultra-modern ride and more than just escapist literature. Definitely worth adding to your To Read list. As is standard practice in this industry, I received a free review copy.
