Overview

Meet Sheriff Penny Miller of Flat Rock, Nevada. Miller is the kind of woman who will do whatever it takes to protect those she is sworn to serve, even when that includes a murderous biker, her wimpy ex-husband, a unit of incompetent National Guardsmen, and the scientist responsible for releasing the undead upon an unsuspecting world.

"THE HUNGRY is a zombie thriller loaded with sex and smarts. A real nail-biter that brings a new weapon to bear in apocalyptic fiction: Hope. Highly recommended."

-Jonathan Maberry, NYT Times bestselling author of Dust & Decay and Dead of Night

"If you're craving an apocalyptic horror novel that's not just wall-to-wall action but balls-to-the-wall intense, Steven W. Booth and Harry Shannon have cooked up a real treat for you. I would say The Hungry will leave you totally satisfied, but that's not true: Readers will be howling for more more more MORE just like the hordes of insatiable zombies rampaging through this book."

-Steve Hockensmith, author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls

"You don't know what gut-churning page-flipping horror really is until you read this one. The Hungry combines the storytelling power of the big commercial thriller with many new twists on standard zombie fiction. A real winner."

-Ed Gorman, author of The Dark Fantastic and Cage of Night

"From the opening line, I loved it. I loved how complete it felt. It had so many great elements working for it - the small town setting; the two powerful main characters, as different as they could be, nearly every word between them charged with sexual tension; the satisfying stalemate as neither one gets exactly what they want, but rather what they need. A great story, and for a zombie fan like me, it pressed all the right buttons."

-From the Introduction by Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Flesh Eaters

    REVIEWED: The Hungry WRITTEN BY: Steven W. Booth and Harry Shann

    REVIEWED: The Hungry
    WRITTEN BY: Steven W. Booth and Harry Shannon
    PUBLISHED: October, 2011

    This was a fun-filled zombie apocalypse adventure... "Fun-filled?" you ask. It is when the plot revolves around an array of quirky characters who each have their own snarky voice and love to shoot sarcasm as much as they love to shoot guns. Exciting, gory, funny, this book has a little something for everyone. The lead character, Sheriff Penny Miller, portrays the ultimate in strong female leads - she's a divorced powerhouse, stuck battling zombies in the wedding dress that reminds her of happier days. The characters are robust, the action is non-stop, and it's funny - just funny the whole way through.

    Five out of Five stars
