Overview

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

Reagan and crew have finally found some place permanent to stay. Tyler’s childhood friend Gage runs a storage facility turned apartment complex and has offered them shelter, safety and a permanent residence for however long they want it.

It sounds too good to be true.

The problem with living in the Zombie Apocalypse is that most things that sound too good to be true usually are.

And among concerns about Tyler’s crazy dad, Matthias Allen, stopping over for a visit, Reagan still has to deal with Kane.

When Kane becomes a difficult prisoner, Reagan is sent to deal with him. A few unlucky circumstances later and Reagan must learn to trust Kane with not only her safety, but also her life. On the run from a horde of Zombies, Reagan and Kane must fight together to stay alive.

But before they’re out of danger, Reagan is going to have to compromise parts of herself she didn’t know were up for debate.

Can Reagan get back to Hendrix alive? Or worse, without Kane marking part of her heart?

Love and Decay, Episode Ten, is the tenth in a novella series in a Dystopian Romance about Zombies, the end of the world and finding someone to share it with.

This story takes place over multiple episodes, with a release date every two weeks. Approximately 20,000 words.

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.

    Yet another great story from Rachel Higginson. This novella which comes out approximately every two weeks documents the story of Reagan, Haley and the Parker Brothers as they try to cross America after it has been taken over by Feeders. Our favorite characters have finally found a place to rest for a while, but things can't be calm for long with this crew. I am really enjoying this series, even though I typically don't read "zombie" books. Rachel brings these characters to life. They aren't perfect, but have very human moments that make them relatable to almost everyone. I recommend everything that Rachel has written. I haven't found one I didn't like yet!

    I have to give 5 stars for this series I just love this story. Y

    I have to give 5 stars for this series I just love this story. You never know what's going to happen from one episode to the next. One minute your heart and mind goes one direction, and in a page you are changing directions. The characters you hate and want to continue hating you come to love. Ugggg!
    At the end of episode 9 the group ends up in another compound at gunpoint. But come to find out the guy, (Gage) running this compound has a history with Tyler and the rest of the Allen family . He defected from her father's compound and feels bad that he did not try to take Tyler and Miller with him, he feels he owes them. So he offers his compound as a refuge for them and the Parker group, for as long as they want.
    Tylers father is due though for an annual meeting, so Gage is set to send them to his secret hide out a home in the side of a cave not far from the compound but hidden enough until her father leaves. He locks Kane up because he does not trust hime, but he needs cleaned up and then he will send him with his father.
    Problem Kane won't let anyone clean him or his wounds except none other than Reagan, so she volunteers to let Tyler back out, and goes to the task without Hendrix knowledge. Not Good!!!
    Needless to say Reagan ends up at the creek with Kane and only a couple guards to protect them. Zombies yes hoards of them and ones that seem to be well organized and smarter than previous encounters come out everywhere. The guards dont last long and the compound is out of reach. Reagan tells Kane she knows where they can run and they head to the house in the cave. Barely making it, the are now secluded , alone, and do not know when help will find them.

    Holy Halloween! I think this episode is my favorite! Firstly, I

    Holy Halloween! I think this episode is my favorite! Firstly, I love Harrison for reading my mind. I totally laughed out loud because Vaughan said something and Harrison and I were thinking the exact same thing. So does that mean my mind is like that of a young teenage boy? Ew. I hope not. But still, I like Harrison all the more now.

    So, the whole group was voting on whether they would stay at Gage's settlement for a while or move on. Vaughan was trying to get Tyler's opinion on what she wanted to do. He told her that she and Miller were a part of their family now and families stick together. But he phrased it in such a way that me, Harrison, and any other person with a dirty mind would make it sound like it was perverted.

    Kane is in this book again. Like, a lot. And Reagan expresses all these "feelings" she has for him, and when I say "feelings" I do not mean lovey-dovey type feelings. I mean feelings of responsibility and other confused feelings that Reagan can't really explain. Now, I totally do not understand why Reagan think Kane is her responsibility. Kane is not her responsibility at all! He made his own decision to come after her. She does not have any obligation to him because of the choices he made. He was the one to leave The Colony. Reagan should not feel like it is her problem to fix.

    But whatever. Those feelings of mine were pointless once I read further into the story and Kane and Reagan were attacked by like seventy zombies or something ridiculously scary like that. One gun. A knife. And a piece of wood. Those were Reagan's and Kane's only weapons against the hungry horde that ran after them like Olympic sprinters.

    I believe that a near death experience (and one that is as terrifying as being chased by zombies) is a real bonding experience between people. I sure got bonded to Kane in this episode because of it. Their situation was so tragic and scary that I would have flung myself into Kane's arms after an experience like that. For sure! Reagan was being all reasonable and thinky...but I was just like, "I would totally be hugging him and holding onto him in relief that I was still alive if I were you right now, Reagan." I mean, she got there, eventually. Just after thinking about it for a bit and then graciously allowing him to hug her. He wouldn't have needed my permission for a hug. I would have attacked him with a hug even if he didn't want it.

    But anyway, I got really emotional reading this episode and I loved it. And I really am intrigued by Kane now. Like really really interested. I want to have the next episode now so I can know what is going to happen with him next!

    more from this reviewer

    Infuriatingly Good!!

    Could the groups trek to the South finally be coming to an end? It looks as if they are finally coming to terms that it may be time to quit traveling and put down some roots, if even for a little bit. Now the only problem left to contend with is Kane…the big, broody elephant in the room.

    ***
    Kane was attractive, gorgeous even. And he had this whole aura of mystery that was a little bit enticing, if I was honest with myself. But that was it.
    On the inside he was a hollow, cruel person that lost his moral compass a while ago. The moments he was anything more were just that, moments…glimpses of a person that ceased to exist when Zombies became out reality.
    ***

    Going to be flat out honest with you...the ending to this one sucked. Big time. Higginson did another amazing job writing this one and giving us another nail biting, suspenseful read. But really? I am just not liking the predicament that Reagan has found herself once again. This girl is marked for bad luck and poor company. Ugh! There was supposed to be chocolates and flowers at the end. This is not the romance I signed up for. Where is my chocolates and flowers and declarations of love??

    All sarcasm aside, I did really love this one. It definitely has you thinking and wondering what is going to happen with Reagan. Not going to give away what situation she has found herself in, but it is a doozy. All I know Hendrix is going to come in blazing in the next one that is for sure. He has to! I just hate that we have to wait 2 whole weeks before we get to see it.

    As the series continues, the intensity and suspense increases with every turn of the page. This series is a must read for anyone with a zombie fetish and a love for romance. And even though I complained about the ending and how it sucked...5 stars all the way!
