Overview

Chemical Warfare has turned most of the world’s population into flesh eating Zombies. These are the accounts of two survivors.

Kylee and Jade are on their way from one author convention to another. After saying goodbye to all their friends, they never dreamed the plane would land with them fighting for their lives.

Jade Warwick has been preparing for the end of the world for years, but she never thought the world would end with zombies. The only thing salvaging her almost lost sanity is the fact that she is with her best friend, Kylee.

With their first mission being to find their families, will the girls manage to save their families while trying to save each other?

This book had me bursting out in laughter. "Beaver Fever"..OMG!!!"Flight Attendants" = Servants...Hahaha. Very funny. If I ever get up the guts to fly I will surely remember this :) This story was fun to read, loved every bit of it. Even found something in the story that matches with Jennifer, but....no spoilers here! Looking so forward to the next one.

Where are the funny parts? The main characters are so annoying, I was rooting for the zombies. Don't waste your money on this crap.

10+*s. I won a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review. This is a wickedly hilarious and awesome look at Jade's point of view. Of course, I have to say that this character reminds me a lot of the author and what I can only assume that she would do in a Zombie Apocalypse. It's full of excitement, adventure, two authors and a little girl. My favorite part of the book is the code Oceans or Red and of course I know what they are talking about too as soon as I read it. These characters had so much personality of each author in these two books. This is a MUST read that will capture your mind, heart, and soul and keep you hooked til the end. Thank you, Jennifer Malone Wright, for giving us a look into what you would do if a zombie apocalypse really did happen. I loved this book so much that I had to purchase it too.

I had the pleasure of reading Once Upon a Zombie Apocalypse (OUAZA from this point forward) as a beta reader just prior to its release. The story begins in an airport with authors Kylee and Jade traveling home following a convention. Things start out a tad slow (for this genre anyway) but swiftly pick up steam as the zombie apocalypse strikes while our intrepid heroines are trapped on board an flight full of brave flight attendants and first-stage zombies. The scenario and horror factor were reminiscent of Snakes on a Plane but without quite as much cheese. (If SoaP is Velveeta, then OUAZA is at least nice sharp cheddar.) Jennifer Malone Wright is the indie author of popular series, The Vampire Hunter's Daughter, and so she knows how to weave a great tale full of action and suspense. Her portrayal of Jade Warwick is in the first-person perspective, handled right so the reader can enjoy the story without the jarring mishaps of so many authors who attempt and fail with this difficult point of view. Now, I'm a huge zombie fan and I have been since Romero trotted out his original Night of the Living Dead, which I watched faithfully as a kid, every Halloween. My knowledge of the restless dead is fairly comprehensive, spanning Serpent and the Rainbow, Night of the Comet, 30 Days After (and sequel), Zombieland, Resident Evil (et al), and, of course, The Walking Dead. Am I a zombie expert? No. But a zombie enthusiastic? Yes, definitely. Wright hits the right notes for a successful zombie series, bringing credible action sequences and plenty of gore to the table. Her descriptions of carnage were not over the top disgusting, but her series does carry a stern warning that it is intended for than over eighteen-years-old audience. The fight scenes are good—detailed and well executed. OUZAZ is likewise really well edited with lots of attention given to good grammar and story flow. The story has the sort of professionalism you expect to see from traditional publishing, not always present in Indie works. Overall, the story tone struck me as younger than the apparent age of the protagonists, by perhaps as much as ten years. The language use was hip and modern. In terms of characterization, I really liked Jade. She was an empathetic character, very likeable, who was easy to relate to while still retaining the whimsical nature of zombie fiction. Wright is by no means unaware of the humor of the genre, and incorporates funny moments seamlessly into the story. As it happened, I found the character of Kylee, Jade's companion, to be an irritant; however, the character did bring a lot to the table as an effective foil for the more serious Jade. Supporting character Cheryl, an orphaned teenager, appealed to me much more. She shared an interesting dynamic with Jade that seemed to have a great deal of potential. I'm curious to see whether the two develop a mother/daughter dynamic as the story progresses and I'd love to see a story part from Cheryl's POV. If you enjoy fast-paced zombie tales, then this is a five star read all the way! Future episodes will definitely be on my To-Read list.

Not a bad book at all. Funny,drama and all the adult humor you could want. Very quick read took about a hour. I really wish her books were longer i feel like i am always left hanging and that i dont like.
