"He had dozed off, feeling safe and exhausted, in the middle of nowhere. He laid his head back just for a second, listening to the madness on the satellite radio. America has fallen! Russia has fallen! The Middle East has fallen! He fell asleep.
His eyes snapped open. A shuffle of dirt caught his ear. He wiped the drool from his mouth. The rearview mirror showed nothing. His heart raced. Something was out there. A flicker of movement caught his eye in the side view mirror. He jerked out of the way just as a hand ...

Overview

"He had dozed off, feeling safe and exhausted, in the middle of nowhere. He laid his head back just for a second, listening to the madness on the satellite radio. America has fallen! Russia has fallen! The Middle East has fallen! He fell asleep.
His eyes snapped open. A shuffle of dirt caught his ear. He wiped the drool from his mouth. The rearview mirror showed nothing. His heart raced. Something was out there. A flicker of movement caught his eye in the side view mirror. He jerked out of the way just as a hand clutched for his neck. He scrambled through the passenger side door and rolled outside."

The Facility is what the Washington D.C. officials call it. It is a day care for zombie children, tucked deep in the east coast hills. Is there a cure for the zombies? The children of the undead give them the best hope. There are those who think the zombie threat is harmless…and those that don’t. The World Humanitarian Society wants to protect the zombies…or do they? Friends, family and colleagues are set at odds, dealing with the deadly dilemma. What about the zombies? What rights do they have in all of this? Or are they just a means to another diabolical end?

    a fun read...

    Reviewed by Lori M for Readers Favorite

    I love zombie movies, zombie books, and zombie television shows like the current series, "The Walking Dead". That's why I picked up this book, to find out why there was a Zombie Day Care.

    Craig Halloran has the ability to tell a good tale. Without giving any of the book's secrets I woule merely say that he puts a great new spin on zombies, something that we haven't heard before. The characters are well-defined and descriptive. I felt sorry for Nate, who never knew that saving the world would be such a burden. There are some great scenes that make the reader tense up, wondering what is going to happen next. I even cringed at the scene with the saw. Did I say too much? Halloran does a good job going back and forth between characters as each chapter unfolds, catching the reader up with what is going on in each one's life at that time.

    Again, it really was a fun read and the author has a good feel for what makes a good story. If I were to offer any criticism of the book, it would primarily be with regard to the editing insofar as there are numerous misspelled words, missing words, and little details that were off. For example, the character Jimmy's name is sometimes erroneously spelled as Jimmie in the text. Did that really matter in the grand scheme of things? No, but for readers like me, it was a slight distraction.

    Great read for zombie fans. This story is not like the rest where hoards of zombies are eating everyone in site. This is more of dealing with the aftermath, experiments and world population control. Well written and fun dialogue. I like how the author moves around a little and developes many characters. Read it zombie fan!

    Delightful in a twisted way. Zombies are slowed by What? It's That's crazy! You have to read it. But this story makes that secret formula work.. This is more about what happens to zombies once you get them under control,. How there arrival affects life and dabbles into the conspiracy of who is under control. Trapped in a lab with zombies, a team of zombie researchers finds themselves at odds with the zombies but more so, their biggest enemies of all.themsleves. Such a cool story! you have to read it!

    When suggested to Craig Halloran to create a unique storyline for a new book, he shot for the moon. I have to say, he hit his mark with this crazy, bizarre story. I did not know what to make of it in the beginning. It was just weird and hard to wrap my head around the plot, but as I continued to read, I began cheering for one of the characters, for he was the only one with commonsense in the book. That was the hook that caught me. I was glued to the book and it pained me to put it down. Once you get over the initial shock of the story’s plot, I believe you will enjoy this book. I am off to read book 2!

    ¿Zombie Day Care¿ blends the traditional horror of the zombie su

    “Zombie Day Care” blends the traditional horror of the zombie subgenre with humor and action for an entirely new brand of zombie fiction. 

    A zombie outbreak is sweeping the world, and cities are falling into chaos as people’s loved ones turn and attack—Nate McDaniel is running from his hungry zombie girlfriend Jeanine, who chases him tirelessly until a final confrontation in a convenience store. There, Nate McDaniel makes a discovery (and a pretty hilarious one) that saves the world and makes him a hero—and soon scientists are penning and observing zombies as they desperately seek a cure to turn their loved ones human again. Henry is one of those scientists, and he and his girlfriend Tori are soon facing off against the evil plans of Henry’s brother, Jimmy. 

    “Zombie Day Care” is a fun and entertaining read, and I like how civilization hangs on beyond the initial apocalypse—it’s an interesting take and stands out from the other survival-based zombie tales in the genre. It has a nice mix of gore, action, and both good and evil characters that keeps the plot moving along. Recommended to readers who enjoy well-written horror, especially horror with a sense of humor and a unique plot.

    Umm....

    I read this fairly quickly... the whole time wondering why I was still reading it. I love all things zombie.... but this was terrible. Oh, and a heads up to the author... women don't talk to their breasts.

    Skip this.
