Overview

The extinction of humanity approaches...

Out of the jungles of South American stumbled an infected priest. 10 years later the zombie infection has seeped out of the shadows and gutters and has spread across the globe. Governments crumble as they decide who should live and who must die.

Out of this pre-apocalyptic world emerges Donavan Leeds, an ordinary man who dreams of becoming a Samurai. Paralyzed by loneliness after he is mysteriously abandoned by everyone he loves, Van wakes one warm night to find a figure holding a sword at the foot of his bed. Obligated by a profound debt, Van hires out his samurai sword and a river of zombie blood follows. To a desperate world, Van becomes a folk hero; to the secretly infected, he is 'the beginning of a war'.

As humanity's darkest forces gather on one side and the incurably diseased gather on the other, civilization is on the brink of its bloodiest war. And Van, blinded by love and a secret that could change the course of mankind, must decide who to kill to prevent the zombie apocalypse.

    Interesting Take on a Zombie Story

    In this pre-apocalyptic world, zombies are starting to come out. These zombies are not the typical ones that everyone thinks of. Many of them look like normal people with a bad habit of trying to eat brains. There are certain areas that humans are not recommended to go because these have been designated zombie areas.

    We meet Van, a handsome rich kid that spends his time trying to hook up with various girls that he meets in clubs. When he discovers a nasty message on a bathroom stall, he starts obsessing about it and starts calling old conquests just to have everything confirmed.

    Then one night he wakes up to an old friend standing over his bed with a samurai sword. They start talking and decide to go into the zombie hunting business. But because of Van’s training with a sword and his background, they decide to market it as Samurai Zombie Hunters. And business is booming.

    Then Van starts learning more about himself and finds that he has a hard time killing zombies. It doesn’t help when his other best friend comes out about being a zombie, his partner is not willing to work with him and his killing issues, and he meets a woman that he is falling in love with.

    This was an interesting story. I liked the different view on zombies. It makes them scarier than typical walking corpses because you don’t know who really could be a zombie. I have to admit that the whole sexual technique was one area that I had to knock the book. It could be that I’m a woman and that does go over my head. I do understand how he’s bent out of shape learning he sucks, but get over yourself.

    I admit that I loved the twist ending. I felt for Van with his whole struggle, especially when he finally finds someone her wants to be with. But yes, the way it ends leaves you wanting a second book.

    In the end, it was a good book. I’m curious to see if there is going to be another book since it ends with possibilities. This is one of those books that you don’t really hear about but it’s one that you should try, I don’t think you will be disappointed.

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest opinion.

    Highly Recommend!

    I couldn't put this one down! The main characters are Van and Kofi, who have been friends since college. The story starts out with Van reflecting upon his uninspiring love life, which leaves him feeling pretty lonely and rejected. Kofi unexpectedly visits Van in the middle of the night to get him to help him kill a zombie, since Van's got mad samurai skills. Van agrees, but reluctantly because it's the middle of the night and he pretty much scared the crap out of him by just appearing in his room out of nowhere with his samurai sword. Van hasn't seen his friend Kofi in awhile and could use the company so they go and kill a zombie.

    Kofi decides to start a business with Van as Samurai Zombie Hunters. They get more and more jobs along the way from random citizens that have problems with their zombie neighbors. We experience some of the different jobs that they go on, which were thrillingly described. In this story, zombies aren't so different from humans in their first few years after turning (besides the brain eating-which they seem to do discreetly), so deep down, after a few jobs, this seems to effect Van. Plus, there's a sort of twist at the end that I loved! This book may not be for everybody as there is some cussing & slightly vulgar sexual references, but if you don't mind it, this book is pretty awesome! I highly recommend it!

    Not recomended

    The story line was absent and the characters weak. Hard to care what happens to the characters.
