    INCONSIDERATE REVIWER

    NOW THAT A READER WROTE A LONG, LONG REVIEW, GIVING AWAY MUCH OF THE STORY AND PLOT, I DON'T HAVE TO PURCHASE THE BOOK. WHY DO PEOPLE INSIST ON RUINING A BOOK FOR OTHERS. I REALLY WANTED TO READ THIS BOOK. MAYBE NEXT TIME THIS PERSON DECIDES TO WRITE A REVIEW HE OR SHE WILL BE MORE CONSIDERATE OF OTHERS.

    THE SUSPENSE NEARLY KILLED ME!!!

    “Zombie Attack: Rise of the Horde” is everything the blurb promises it to be, and much, much more! When the current world order collapses into chaos under the shuffling feet of flesh-eating zombies, and law and order can no longer be maintained; those who thrive in a lawless world get together to create even more chaos. Gangsters and those who oppose them, Neo-Nazi’s and cannibals, are just some of the dangers Xander, Benji and Felicity have to face on their journey to the safe zone at Port Hueneme. Along the way they even run into a religious cult who tends to use strangers as sacrifices and as food for their caged zombies. With bloody, gory action, and nail-biting suspense from the start, which does not let up until the last sentence, I finished this book in one day. Of all the post-apocalyptic books I have read, this one actually scared me the most, as it projects a truly frightening end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it scenario. The main character, Xander, is one of the best crafted characters I have ever encountered. Not only is his personality absolutely realistic but his sarcastic, smart-mouth comments will make you laugh out loud - that is when he’s not getting into some trouble because of said mouth. Where Xander is slightly aggressive, bitter, and jaded at times, his young friend Benji is a kind boy who wins the hearts of people with his sweet disposition. The third member of their group, Felicity Jane, mood swings and all, proves to be a diplomatic asset when it really counts. Amidst the seriousness, suspense and heartbreak of their journey, the trio still find time for fun and relaxation and, yes, even for a few gentle romantic moments. A tale of despair and sacrifice, small precious victories, farewells and reunions, and subtle spirituality, “Zombie Attack: Rise of the Horde” is a book I would highly recommend to readers looking for an enormously thrilling story with a degree of depth to it. As the book ends with a bit of a cliff hanger, I sincerely hope that we'll soon see more books from this brilliant author. (Ellen Fritz)

    Straying from the usual plot of trying to create a stronghold an

    Straying from the usual plot of trying to create a stronghold and stand their ground, Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde takes us on the road. Trying to get to his brothers military base, Xander picks up new comrades along the way. In Sagliani's world, where zombies aren't the only monsters roaming the streets, Xander and his friends face neo-Nazis, marauders, cults and other evils of a fallen society.

    Where all it takes is a single bite, this group of misfits suffer the loss of loved ones, childhood idols, and each other. Xander, jaded and suspicious, displays instincts and common sense far beyond his years. Trained by his soldier half brother, Moto, Xander is skilled in martial arts and wields my favorite weapon...the katana. Unassuming Benji looks to Xander for direction like a lost puppy dog. Xander takes Benji under his wing, protecting him from the torments of man and zombie alike. These two fast friends come across teen actress Felicity Jane. Having fallen victim to the child actor stereotype of substance abuse, Felicity Jane manages to pull herself together and team up with Xander and Benji.

    No zombie book would be complete without a few religious zealots. Sagliani manages to sneak in my favorite apocalyptic quote "the dead shall walk the earth because Hell is overflowing and there is no more room for them". And doesn't it just figure that during the apocalypse, the only things left airing on TV are The Jersey Shore and Jackass!?

    Appropriate for the Young Adult masses it was written for, Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde balances the right amount of horror and emotion. Sagliani manages to pull out another winner. The characters were relatable and genuine. The story was fast-paced and unexpected. I love that Sagliani hints at the possibility of zombies having a hive mind and working together.

    I received this book to give an honest review. MAY CONTAIN SPOIL

    I received this book to give an honest review.
    MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS BEWARE!!!

    I am torn how to rate this book. I am going from between three and four rating. Maybe by the time this review is written I can have a rating.
    The story was strong, let me say I love zombies there is just something about them that creeps me out but at the same time I get giddy with excitement to read about them. Maybe it is the fact that they eat people, or maybe it is the fact that you can shoot them or chop off their head. Whatever it is I like a good zombie book.
    This was how it started. 
    Xander is a teenager who is living on a base, until a horde of zombies comes and destroys it. 
    After that Xander and his young friend Benji head out to find the base where Moto who is Xander's brother is stationed at.
    Now for a while at the beginning I kept hearing Moto and I had no clue who in the hell that was and it bothered me until finally it became clear it was Xander's brother. 
    As we follow Xander and Benji they encounter more people rather than zombies. But when they do encounter the zombies it is not gory much. I guess I am so use to reading books that deal with gory that I was a bit surprised at this. 
    Along the way they do add another person to their group and she is a bit of a celebrity. Felicity Jane who ends up going with them to Hueneme and using her charms to get them out of some trouble. 
    Now there is a part in the story where Xander and Benji see a helicopter I want to know why they never tried to get the attention of it? I know if I saw a army helicopter bet your bottom dollar I would be trying my hardest to get its attention no matter if humans or zombies are coming after me.

    Overall this was a good zombie book, and I can't wait to read book two to find out what else can happen.

     At first I was afraid that this would be just a copy of a class

     At first I was afraid that this would be just a copy of a classic ol' zombie tale.
     Just when I thought I knew what would happen in the story,
     I was blown away by the creativeness of the author!
     I loved the references to current pop culture and details of teenage life.
     I also liked the fact that the characters were mostly teens.
     In all honesty I think the younger generation would survive in the Zombie apocalypse,
    especially after reading this book. Looking forward to the next horde,a big fight :)

    Xander Macnamara (16) is living at Vandenberg Air Force base.
    He is fluent in martial arts and practices to pass the time.
     His brother Moto is military royalty, and he gave Xander a Katana,
     as well as training before he left for his current duty.
    When Benji Jones (12) is being bullied by Weasel, Xander steps in and
     makes Weasel apologize for trying to steal comic books and beating up Benji.
    Then Benji becomes his friend and traveling companion till the end.
    Benji tells how he lost his whole family on Z day, he loves reading comics and talking. 
    The base gets run over by a zombie horde while the two run to an elementary school.
     They successfully maneuver out of the school only to run into the Parker twins who are packing heat.
    Their father was in the military and trained them with every automatic gun imaginable. 
    This is the start of an incredible journey to find Xander's brother Moto
    (hel-lo mo-to, Motorola commercial ) in Hueneme.
    The two boys meet crazy, cannibalistic, charismatic, religious, fanatical, helpful,
    innocent, brave, smart, talented, and strange people, most get eaten except for a rare few gems.
     The boys manage to watch tv, eat junk food, play video games (mostly Benji), drive sweet cars,
    listen to rock and roll, make escape plans, search and rescue, meet cute girls, live in a mansion with a pool,
     evade zombies, kill zombies with swords and guns, all through their zombie experience. 

    The zombies were believable,and the characters were solid.
     I felt while reading, oh no they got stuck again...very suspenseful.
     The Devan Sagilani really took time to put in details about teens in our era,
    and he also incorporated how they felt and dealt with their awful surroundings,
     bad people, sad events, kick butt dreams and still hold out hope!
     A strong message I got while reading this book is: bad things happen,
     but there is always an answer to every situation.
    Never give up because the small things in life are miracles.
     You never know who you will meet or what adventure waits around the corner.

    Young adult zombie apocalypse, worked, mostly

    Please find this complete review and many others at audiobookreviewer dot com

    Rise of the Horde: Zombie Attack!, Book One started very strong with the impending doom of the impossible zombie horde. Action, violence, gore all the essential ingredients to a good zombie story, with the added in necessary juvenility that a young adult novel requires. Imagine if you will being sixteen at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse and the only thing that really sets you apart from all the other teenagers is your wits and your samurai sword. I was happy with the base storyline that Devan Sagliani created until the zombies left the story and it was all about, for lack of better adjectives, the former drug addict girl. This is where I found it to get a bit dull and slow. However it does pick back up when they run into the crazy cultists, they always creep me out and Sagliani nailed that part. Over all I got my zombie fix and was happy that I took the time for this one. I am looking forward to the second book of the series, I really hope that it goes audio.

    Good

    Really good book. I actually had a hard time putting it down. One thing I found annoying was the lack of conjunctions. That really bugged. Still a great book.
