    Imagine living in a world of magic where some individuals posses

    Imagine living in a world of magic where some individuals posses it and some don’t. Some of these people even have the ability to wield more than others. Now imagine zombies who are being created on purpose, though I won’t just the reason away, and a young man named Orlando is tasked at killing them. It almost appears to be a game of sorts, and in some areas it is. Underground rings are even dedicated to fighting zombies where you can take a round in the ring. But what happens when the zombies are out in the world and not under the control of their masters?

    Does Orlando and his friends stand a chance against their creator? Will they be turned as well? Who is really responsible for creating the zombies that now threaten mankind as well as those who posses magic?

    This was an interesting read, and I wasn’t 100% sure how I would feel about it. It has all the parts a good story should, complete with twists you won’t see coming. The characters themselves are very solid too. The plot is well written with an exciting climax of events, and the use of magic is a nice touch. I think this story would be very entertaining to young adults ages 12 and up who enjoy urban fantasy or zombie stories.

    I’ll be honest, this was my very first zombie story, though I love to watch zombie movies and television shows. Most of these just show an end-of-the-world scenario, so this was a refreshing take on zombies that I enjoyed immensely.

    I didn’t really know what to expect from The Zombie Story.

    I didn’t really know what to expect from The Zombie Story. I knew it was the first novella in a series, that it was about zombies (obviously), but other than those two things I was taking a shot in the dark. As I began reading the novel I was wondering one thing: What sets The Zombie Story apart from other zombie stories. Since as most of you should know, there are a lot of them. Well there is a long list of reasons why this novella sets the bar far from other zombie based stories: The world is still normal and not dystopian. Not everybody knows about the existence of zombies. And did I forget to mention the part where everybody is tested to see just how powerful their magick is?

    Yes, I just said that: Magick. With a capital (well actually lower case) K. In the wonderful world of The Chronicles of Orlando everybody on planet Earth has magical powers but to some extent and our MC Orlando is yet to be tested.

    When I began reading the novel I found it well written and interesting. Poor Orlando being forced to move to L.A. and then seeing a zombie get killed on his first day in town. Sure it doesn’t sound like a great way to start the day, but it was a great way to start a novel (la). As the story progressed I did notice the way the building of characters and the way that the Zombie Hunter’s worked, but like any story you need a bad guy! And in The Zombie Story our bad guy is Maxwell who came off as unpredictable and like a mad-scientist. Not to mention that the other main bad guys in the story were the zombies themselves, who (contrary to popular belief) are still semi-intelligent?

    While I did hope that maybe we would get to see some romance (because come on who doesn’t like a little bit of romance?) I did think that when Orlando was around our main female character Elodie that their friendship could definitely change into something more and what the note that The Zombie Story ends on, I wouldn’t ignore the idea.

    As for the ending, it totally left you waiting for the sequel with their being so many lose ends and so many more people left

    Not so great.

    To begin with, why does the cover have a picture of the Bay Bridge when the story takes place in Southern California? If your going make the effort to write a story, then do it right, there are so many typos and sentences that make no sense. So annoying! Lame story. Don't waste a dime on this one.
