Editorial Reviews

http://theeclecticbookworm.wordpress.com - Amanda A.
I do read the zombie genre and I loved this take on zombies. It's a bit scarier when the zombies have different "attributes" than your typical zombie as in other books or movies in the genre. I loved the young heroine Cassie and her resolve to find her family and her growing confidence in herself and her abilities. There is an element of romance that is also intriguing and welcoming within all the gore.

Overall, a great zombie read that will hook you and have you reaching for the next.

    This book rocked!

    I love gross and bloody zombie stuff which I know is a bit weird for a girl. But this by far is my fav book of a all time. Most zombie books have guys as the main character but this one was diffrent. I hate how a lot of people are pretty sexist but this had a girl as the main character. I mean I was the only girl on our football team! But I am very against people telling me that I cant do something because I am a girl. You can do anything if u set ur mind to it. If u were not grossed out at all by this book I recommend the tv series the walking dead. If u agree with me press yes!

    Oh man, was this book amazing! Let me start off by saying I'm not at all a fan of zombies or any of that type of stuff so I went into this book hesitantly, but from the very beginning I could not put it down! Ms. Middleton is fast becoming a favorite author of mine and I am looking forward to the rest of this series! The characters are all very relatable and you can't help but feel an affinity for Cassie as she tries to find her mom and sister during the madness. And Bryce sounds like a total hottie! Lol!!! I recommend this book completely to everyone, even if you are like me and not normally a fan of the whole Zombie Apocolypse idea. It really is a fantastic read! Fbe stars all the way!

    Not your ordinary zombie book! Funny adventure with lots of action

    This book starts off before the zombie apocalypse and gets into more detail of how it occured, unlike other books out there. Funny and lots of girl's kicking zombie butt. Great story

    Pretty good read. It held my attention and kept me wanting to know more. I really enjoyed the characters, they were very diverse and well developed. There were some funny parts which was a nice change, however it did happen a little too frequently to lend the story a lot of believability. There were parts that could have been intense or even scary but the joking around took away from it. There also just wasn't quite enough detail to really draw the reader in and the pacing was a bit off. I feel like there were times when Cassie was searching for her sister that could have had the reader ont he edge of her seat, had more detail been given. Instead it seemed very rushed and just didn't allow you to really feel what she was going through.
    I also had to roll my eyes a bit that almost EVERY character introduced knew how to shoot a gun and had been to a shooting range. I grew up with in a gun family with two brothers and a dad that hunt and shoot on a regular basis and I've shot guns-but I've never set foot in a shooting range. Seemed a bit of a stretch to me. (And just to add this since it seems to be a common problem among self-published zombie books-if the electricity is out you can't just pull up to a gas pump and get gas! That really bothers me.)
    Other than that it was really good and I will be more than happy to pay for her other books. I'm glad that there are some authors out there who are willing to create strong female characters. I'm getting awfully tired of all the Bella's out there. (Or even the Katniss' who are negative and unwilling to deal with reality.)
