Overview

Evolved Publishing presents "The Zombie West Trilogy" by Angela Scott, a special omnibus edition featuring all 3 books of the award-winning Zombie West series, along with some fun bonus content. (Young Adult, Zombie Western Romance) ~~~ The Wild West is hard enough to survive with its native territory, wanted outlaws, and harsh terrain, but with a plague turning civilized people into brain-eating monsters, survival becomes nearly impossible. ~ Red has lost everything to the fast-spreading disease: her family, her trust in mankind, and her hope for a better tomorrow. When she meets Trace, a smooth-talking gambling man who's more city boy than cowboy, she's forced down a path she'd been avoiding for years. Until his arrival, she'd lived by a certain set of rules-don't ask names, keep to yourself, don't let anyone too close-but the jackass of a man won't let her be, and he has an uncanny knack for appearing at all the wrong times and in all the wrong places. ~ Each, with a secret of their own, will need to learn that only by working together do they have any chance of surviving The Zombie West. ~ That is, if they don't kill each other first. ~~~ FEATURES ALL 3 BOOKS IN 1 SPECIAL EDITION: Book 1 - Wanted: Dead or Undead; Book 2 - Survivor Roundup
Book 3 - Dead Plains. ~ This special edition also includes 2 exclusive short stories, along with additional bonus content available only in this omnibus edition -- and all for much less than the 3 books purchased individually.

    I have to admit I started reading this expecting a zombie wester

    I have to admit I started reading this expecting a zombie western with lots of eating and being eaten along with some humor. What I got was so much more.

    The story starts on a nail-biting scene that leaves you with no choice but to continue reading.

    Trace is an opportunist, a card shark, a bit of a trickster. All he wants is to stroll through life with no complications. That wasn’t hard until the zombies started moving westward.

    Red is a no-nonsense woman on a mission. Traveling west towards California, she’s hoping to find her brother. He joined the cavalry to fight the zombies and she hasn’t heard from him since.

    The zombie plague has consumed the larger cities on either coast and is rapidly extending to the midwest.

    Thrown together by a chance encounter, Trace and Red slowly begin to trust each other. They will have to in order to survive. As they travel westward, their group of two slowly grows, along with their attraction for each other. They both have secrets kept to themselves for fear they will shatter the tenuous bond growing between them.

    Angela Scott takes her time developing the characters and establishing her story, weaving in new characters along with their stories and building genuine relationships. The scenes were so well written I could swear I was there. I shuddered in horror, feared the worst, and sighed in delight.

    The cliff-hanger ending left my jaw dropping in surprise, already anticipating more. This ending is very satisfying and one of the best I’ve read.

    Survivor Roundup

    My Review

    The story picks up where it left off. The author gave me just enough back information to catch up and then the story took off, pulling me back in time, to the west and the characters I’ve come to love.

    The relationship between Trace and Red strengthens now that some of their secrets have been shared.

    Red and Trace head out to gather much need provisions, making it past the horde outside. Their journey takes them to Mill Creek.

    The town is like undead central, zombies everywhere. Red’s secret comes in handy as she slips past the zombies as if she’s invisible, scrounging up as much as she can and heading back to Trace, waiting at the wagon.

    The zombies might not have noticed her, but others did, and now they want Red.

    She may have made it past the horde, but will they survive what’s coming? Either of them?

    I always to into the next book in a series with a bit of trepidation. Will it give me the answers I seek? Will it be as good as the first book?

    My fears were allayed in the first chapter. Survivor Roundup is as awesome as Wanted: Dead or Undead.

    I’m also big on character driven stories, so the group dynamics were important. Those of you who watch apocalyptic movies and read the books know it’s not just about surviving the cause of it. It’s also about making those life and death decisions, recognizing trouble when it raises its ugly head, and compromising when necessary. Their has to be give and take if the group is to survive. The author had me so wrapped up in her characters lives. Even the ones I couldn’t stand.

    And for you die-hard zombie fans. Angela can write those gut-clenching, gory, munching and hacking scenes. What’s a good zombie story without some gnashing and slaying. She does this so well I’d call it writing in color.

    The ending for the first book was hopeful. One of the best I’ve read. The ending for this one is darker, harder to take, and you do get left hanging. But that’s what a series is all about. Just like your favorite TV show, you can’t wait for the next episode.

    And there’s a big surprise waiting for you in this one. You’ll love it.

    Dead Plains

    My Review

    The end is here. I’m not talking about the apocalypse. I’m talking about this fantastic series.

    There’s not much I can tell you without spoiling it. You’ll be weaving through the undead as the author wraps up individual stories.

    Get ready for it. You’ll not get everything you hoped for. After seeing and sharing so much together, the group will have some casualties and not just life and death ones.

    That’s where the author shines. Having characters act as they do makes this final book so emotional. There’s no nice, neat conclusion. Some scenes are hard to take. I actually cried a couple of times, that’s how difficult some scenes were. But, there are also some scenes that put a smile back on my face.

    As with the first two books, the author wrings it out of you, giving and taking right to the end.

    Even her ending is emotional and I was sad to read the last words. I didn’t want to let go.

    ****

    There is so much to enjoy is this series. Angela has some compelling cover art and she nailed it with the titles.

    Offering her books as an omnibus is genius. I wish it had been available when I started this series. It’s going to look great on my bookshelf.

    I recommend this book to everyone looking for a great read and a new series.

    I received this book for my honest and unbiased review.

    I was extremely intrigued by this trilogy┬┐The Wild West and Zomb

    I was extremely intrigued by this trilogy…The Wild West and Zombies??…hmmm, a combination that was sure to keep me entertained for hours, and it certainly did just that.





    But this series was not only about the undead. It was more a story of courage and sacrifice, as an unlikely mix of people band together to survive against all the elements; natural and supernatural. At times the pacing was a little slow and I would have liked to see more action and interaction with the Zombies, but this book was still exciting enough, with quite a few surprise plot twists, that I was enthralled from start to finish. Red’s story was most peculiar. The minute she walked into Trace’s life I was drawn to her and I had to know more about her. Why was she “Wanted”? Why was she travelling alone? And what in her past had made her such a fierce, feisty character, one who didn’t trust very easily? As the story progressed, so the many questions surrounding her increased; she was an enigma.





    This book was filled with adventure, action, tragedy and heartache, but it also held a lot of hope, courage and uncharacteristic romance. I loved being sucked into a different time and place, and getting to meet strange but interesting people. This was a great read that will be enjoyed by a wide variety of readers.

    I'll start by saying I am a HUGE zombie fan, but couldn't care

    I'll start by saying I am a HUGE zombie fan, but couldn't care less about westerns and cowboys, but the cowboy main character in this series, Trace...YUM. Every guy will want to be him and all the girls will want him. He is a fantastic character. The other main character is Red. The story centers on her and an amazing ability she has but it is also a love story between the two. That's about as much of a spoiler as you are going to get. Wen is a 3rd almost equally main character we meet in the first book and he too is pretty awesome. This series is one that will stay with you for a long time, prompting you to want to read it again and again. I cried several times throughout each book, Scott is a wonderfully emotional writer. I believe that I have read everything by Angela Scott and I just cannot wait to see what she does next. She is hands down one of my favorite authors.

    Wanted: Dead or Undead At first I wasn't real sure what to expec

    Wanted: Dead or Undead
    At first I wasn't real sure what to expect from this book. Zombies in the Wild West seemed a little much to take in. But as soon as I started reading I was hooked.




    I didn't think I would end up liking Red or Cowboy at all. In the beginning they were both very unlikable, arrogant and stubborn. But as their story (and love) progressed I started to like them a lot. Like most zombie stories, this one had little to do with the walkers and more about human nature in the middle of a disaster.
    The secondary characters, Rivers, Fisher, Wen, Caroline, and Ira, really made the story enjoyable and moved it along.




    There really wasn't anything I didn't like about the book or the story line.




    Survivor Round-up
    I had to buy this book after reading Wanted Dead or Undead. There was no way I couldn't know what happened to Red and Cowboy.




    As the group got split, we don't know anything of Wen, Caroline and the kids until the end. The addition of the Native Americans and Davis was a good thing. I am usually leery of the addition of that many new characters, but they are key to the groups survival.




    The relationship between Red and Nash was touching and creepy at the same time, think Stockholm Syndrome. I was happy to see that John got killed. He was a !!@#$%^. I feel really bad for Trace, that man gets the short end of the stick everytime.




    I look forward to the 3rd book.




    Once again I cannot say anything bad about the writing style or the structure.




    Dead Plains
    I was given Wanted Dead or Undead and as soon as I finished it I had to buy Survivor Roundup. Then I had to wait.




    I loved all 3 books equally. There is a very good flow between them. Nothing is left out or skipped from book to book.




    I love Red and her feistyness. Trace is such typical guy. The kids are all great. I don't care too much for Davis though. The whole time I kept wondering what he was going to do and why. He just seemed so shifty, and he proved me right. I was so upset by the way he tricked everyone and played with their emotions and lives. I feel that he got what was coming to him after Red and Aponi left him.




    The scene of the birth was both intriguing and terrifying. I was so scared that something horrible was going to happen. After the birth we get to see a sharp change in both Red and Trace. I liked that Angela Scott made both parents feel so lost and yet determined. At no point did the pregnancy and birth seem easy or unreal, to me at least.




    Adding and subtracting characters can be tricky in a series, but Angela Scott handled it well. With the dangers encountered everyday for the group it makes sense that they would lose people. Adding people added danger and kept the story moving. I was upset by the deaths, but enjoyed the new girl. She is so much like Red.




    Once everyone was back together it was nice to see them enjoy something for a while, even though it was just a water fall and then a journey. I was so glad they found a homestead in the end.




    You must read the epilogue, it will make you smile.
