Editorial Reviews

Diane Moody
"...Who knew a group of four 20-somethings from West Hollywood could find so much trouble following them in a post-apocalyptic, pink-hued world that lands them in Montana - in the 80s? Seffy, Gareth, Addison and Lani took me on a wild ride, both in their roller coaster relationship dynamics and the bizarre new world they suddenly find themselves in. My only complaint is that the unexpected cliff-hanger left me begging for more. I can't wait to read the rest of the series..."
Clare Havens
"I love Bella Street's writing - my favorite line from 'The Z Word' is
'Seffy's brows went up. "You're going to sing? God, all we need now is a herd of unicorns."' This CRACKED me up! It's a great book, loads of humor and very compelling!"

    I'm in love with a zombie...book series!

    Seffy and her friends find themselves thirty years in the past, surrounded by zombies, and totally screwed. As if her unstable friendships weren’t enough drama. Now not only do they have to try and salvage what remains of their friendship but they need to dodge one wave of retro zombie mobs after another and figure out how they wound up thirty years in the past smack dab in the middle of nowhere Montana in the first place.

    Let me start by saying that this book is my first official zombie book read! Eep!
    When I started this book it was hard for me to relate with the characters. They are all from LA…totally into vanity and not really grounded at all. Seffy in particular just couldn’t seem to gain my sympathy. She is a bit self-absorbed and well…useless in the beginning of the novel. But this is clearly the whole point.

    Based on the smooth and seamless character development you don’t really realize as the reader when you stopped finding the characters a bit annoying and when you started rooting for them. Each character is so different and true to themselves yet they all still manage to grow and adapt to their unfortunate situation. Relationships grow and change and every character, Seffy specifically well…grows up.

    Bella Street has a clear and unmistakable talent for storytelling. She somehow made me care about characters who at first I might have enjoyed being eaten by zombies! I got to that pivotal point when reading the book where I just didn’t want to put it down and couldn’t wait to see what happened next!
    There is so much going on in this story, so many mysteries, secrets, and events that you can’t possibly get bored or say that it was slow moving for even a second. Yet at the same time it never felt overwhelmingly complex. I still have questions of course but that’s to be expected from any great series. Not to mention the crazy cliff hanger! Can’t wait to read the next installment!

    Fun Read

    This book took a few too many plot twists, but overall I found it very entertaining.

    READ The Z Word NOW!!! U will be HOOKED...

    This is the first STRAIGHT ZOMBIE book i have ever read...And i enjoyed it... It starts out like this: Seffy and her friends are in L.A. 2006 one minute, and after an explosion, are the Montana dessert, with pink skies and glittery sand. They are confused and there isn't anyone else around to fill in the blanks. They soon realize that they aren't the only ones around, there are dead people walking trying to take a bite out of them--ZOMBIES. Seffy believes she's dreaming, Lani is singing songs, Addison is making jokes (at a time like this?) and Gareth is using his zombie movie knowledge to try to get them through this strange world alive. Seffy and her friends are scared but are soon rescued by a man named Malone. The bunch are mistustful of him, but what can they do? They don't know what's going on...and he seems to know what he is doing. He feeds them and takes them from safehouse to safehouse... You'll have to read the book to find out what happens. I recommend reading this book. As the story ended, i was left screaming What? What's gonna happen now?
