Editorial Reviews

Danny Northside
..(Solis) is very good at throwing you off the trail in regards to what you may think is going to happen. In some chapters he builds up characters that you think will become a main staple throughout the book, only to have them torn to shreds in the next. Others you think may die right away live for a while and it just simply keeps you guessing.
Fatally Yours
Rise and Walk is a book that really grabs you by the lapels, gives you a good shake and proceeds to rip out your throat! Solis wastes no time diving into the action, which, in the case of this book, works just GORE-geously, darling! Solis also has the ability of developing each of the characters, no matter how short-lived their appearances (and disappearances) may be. A character may only live for a few lines, but darned if Solis doesn’t divulge just enough information about them to make

This zombie tale has a little bit of everything a fan of the genre would want. Suspense, gore, great characters and plenty of zombies. Chilling, descriptive, an zombie-riffic this is a collector’s must-have as we’ll be sure to see this author, Gregory Solis, on more horror book titles.
Molly Celaschi
Different characters and storylines like skilled fighters, an empathetic mother, smart young boy, a rich jackass, etc. keep the novel interesting. What I really liked is a zombie attacking the latest protagonist suspiciously resembles someone described five chapters prior to that. This really shows how one person can affect the entire community and how rapidly the epidemic spreads. I found the author to be very in tune with human emotions particularly the women. Mothers, wives, girlfriends were

The novel is professionally written, fast-moving, and entertaining. RISE and WALK offers a pleasant diversion for those readers who enjoy "Zombie-Horror" - they will not be at all disappointed by the novel, and are certain to enjoy it.

The first half of the book could be reduced by about 1/2. The rest of the book was okay, but the main characters were totally unbelievable. Martial arts champions, world class motorcycle riders, guns with them all the time, saves and gets the best looking girls? Please!! C'mon man, I know it's fiction but who the heck can relate to that? I kept expecting Chuck Norris to swing in from a helicopter.

The entire first half of the book should have been condensed into 20 pages. It took a while to get going but the action in the second half was great. You definetly find yourself rooting for the main characters.

Gregory Solisâ¿¿ zombie novel is a masterful tale that any true zombiephile can sink their teeth into. And even if you arenâ¿¿t a die-hard zombie freak, my money is on that even if you have a slight penchant for all things horrific, gory and exceptionally well written then Rise and Walk is a novel that you mustnâ¿¿t pass up. As one would expect Rise and Walk tells the story of a zombie plague, and it should come as no surprise to anyone that there are survivors who are desperately trying to remain survivors. I donâ¿¿t want to give too much of the plot away, but Solis exceeds expectations with outstanding character development which extends much further than just the main characters. Even those in the novel whose sole purpose is to become zombie chow are well developed. I made light of the minor character development to the author and he simply stated, â¿¿The horror is that each of these decayed assailants was once a person, someoneâ¿¿s friend, mother or object of unrequited love. I think sometimes us zombie fans forget how truly frightening these monsters are. Movies recently have tried to ratchet up the fear by making the creatures faster, and that works for film. It is only in novels that we have the time to introduce someone to the inner thoughts and hopes of a person and then strip away that humanity, leaving only primitive urges to consume...â¿ Truer words were never spoken and the authorâ¿¿s knack for creating detailed characters only added that much more to the overall story. Author Solis definitely has a knack for bringing the dead to life. Very detailed and descriptive writing so graphic you can almost smell the flesh rotting. I felt dirty, I could picture each and every setting, I pictured each and every character and graphically imagined each and every horrible mutilation as it happened. To sum it all up, letâ¿¿s just say that I read Rise and Walk in a single day! Never in my life have I ever finished a book in a single day, granted it was only 222 pages or so, but I picked it up expecting to read a few chapters and I never put it down. I wasnâ¿¿t much different from one of the victims in the book in that I was totally consumed by Rise and Walk. Highly recommended!
