Overview

Zombies- as if that wasn’t enough to ruin any girl’s dream of a happily ever after.

After a night of horror and bloodshed in Tulsa, Reagan and crew are back on the road traveling south. Their van is armed with weapons and loaded with supplies. If it weren’t for Kane Allen casting a dark shadow on their trip, things would be looking up.

But Kane is there, and he’s badly injured.

Reagan falls into the role of caretaker in order to protect everyone else from Kane and his disturbing ways. She will do anything to protect those she loves, even if that includes fighting a battle of wits and words against the mysterious force that is Kane Allen. But even Reagan doesn’t understand what she’s up against yet.

Kane isn’t the only danger on the road though. When the van screeches to a halt in front of an army of Zombies, the group will have to get creative in order to fight their way free. And just when they’re about to escape, someone Reagan cares about more than anything is thrown into the dangerous melee of Feeders.

Reagan must risk everything in order to keep her group whole. But in the end will it be enough to save all of them?

Meet the Author

I was born and raised in Nebraska, but spent my college years traveling the world. I fell in love with Eastern Europe, Paris, Indian Food and the beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka. But I came back home to marry my high school sweetheart and now I spend my days raising our growing family. In those few spare moments I have, I am either reading or writing Young Adult Fiction, because I am obsessed with it.

Five other things I'm obsessed with right now:
1. My Kuerig Coffee Machine. Genius.
2. 90's music. Oh man, the 90's speak right to my soul.
3. Chocolate smelling body wash. Who doesn't want to walk around smelling like a bakery?
4. Colored Chapstick. And if it's Dr. Pepper Flavored, that's kind of my nirvana.
And.
5. Spotify. It's like the mixed-tape of this generation and I have probably three hundred hours of music on there. Can't get enough.

    Love this series!!!!
    So with added passenger Kane in tow the Parker group plus Tyler and Miller, (Kane's siblings) continues their journey through the zombie infested world. Reagan and Hendrix chemistry grows, and their relationship grows. But in this episode Reagans near death experience at the hands of the feeders(zombies) is too close for Hendrix. He cant bare the thought of ever loosing her or not being able to protect her.And their extra passenger as much as he is familyt to Tyler, and Miller, No one wants him around. Until he is healed from his wounds they agree to care for him. But unfortunately he is stilled obsessed with claiming Reagan. And Reagan just wishes he were no longer dead, just gone, she feels ultimately responsible for him . Needless to say things get interesting!

    Too many close calls!!! I guess that's to be expected in a zombi

    Too many close calls!!! I guess that's to be expected in a zombie-filled world, but still...I feel bad for everyone. And it's not like I want anyone to die either! I love all these characters to much! Well, I actually could survive the deaths of the Millers. But you take away Reagan, Haley, or any of the Parker family and I am gonna cry! I just have this feeling like one of these days there is going to be a close call, only it will end with someone dying or turning into a zombie and then getting shot.

    But because there's close calls ALL the time, I'm never going to know when to prepare myself for the heartbreak! Grrr!!!!!!

    I totally loved this episode though! Between Hendrix and Reagan fighting zombies in a Walgreens, to Reagan tending to Kane's wounds even though he creeps her out, to a crazy zombie blockade that surrounds everyone, I was on edge the whole time! But really, when am I not on edge while reading this novella series??? This is zombies we're talking about. They're scary. And what's even more frightening is that these zombie are becoming smarter. Or more evolved. Or something horrible that makes them even more of a threat!

    We've been seeing this gradual progression of zombies from the normal moaning and groaning to seemingly calculated attacks. And in this episode they literally created a barrier to block people from passing. Gah! Zombies can't be smart! What happens if they become so smart that they start to use guns too!! Then everyone is dead!

    God, if I'm ever stuck in a zombie apocalypse, please let the zombies be idiots. I need a fighting chance for survival.

    intense!! absolutely intense!!

    This is the end of the world. This was it. In all its deathly, gruesome glory. This was nightmares come to life-biggest fears, unthinkable dangers, the chilling, grisly menace of trying to survive the Zombie Apocalypse.

    And one thought kept running through my head. What if this wasn't the end of the world? What if this was only the beginning.
    ***

    Never able to catch a break, the group is back on the run. But this time, a certain person has caught up to them. Kane. Reagan's fears of him finding her and making good on his last promise to her is now a reality. Fortunately he is very badly hurt and being the good people they are, they won't leave him stranded and unable to protect himself. So the plan is to get him better and leave him on the side of the road. Alone. But in the time of the zombies, no one is safe.

    Wow oh wow! I know I keep saying this in each and every review of LOVE AND DECAY, but this one was probably the most intense to me. You want zombies galore? You got'em! No matter where the group is, there is zombies at every turn. You'd think they would get a break at some point. But where would be the fun in that?

    Reagan is still struggling with her feelings for Hendrix, but it is becoming a little easier for her as the time goes on. I think she is starting to realize that it is ok to love and be loved...even in a zombie apocalypse. But with the added complication of Kane, her feelings for Hendrix might have to take a back seat until they can figure out what they are going to do with him.

    I look forward to this series every 2 weeks. It is like my brain knows it is time for another episode to come out and I have to have it. Thankfully, we will get a special Halloween edition next week too! This short story series is most definitely a must read.
