When a story starts out with an extremely hung over woman who wakes up and finds herself UNDER a bed and somewhere she’s not familiar with, you just know that story will kick you in your horror head! “A Slow Burn” does start like that, and it WILL kick you in the head from page one. Author Shah Wharton has crafted a story that not only captures your imagination, but forces it into a windowless van and blindfolds it. You just have to go along for the ride.   The main character, Bernie, wakes up under a bed with a nastier than average hangover. The stench of death surrounds her and she’s not quite sure where she is or how she got there. She soon discovers the one thing NOBODY wants to discover, much less with a hangover like this. Dead bodies and blood. Lots of blood. “A Slow Burn” brings us along as Bernie tries to figure out what happened between drinks and waking up. It’s obvious from the start that it’s not going to be pleasant. The isolation and loneliness she feels at first makes her as sympathetic a character you could want. You find yourself drawn into her world as she struggles with what has happened to the rest of the world. I’m not going to spoil anything. You’ll WANT to find out for yourself what happens. But along the way Bernie finds other survivors. And, as we all know by now, other living people can be just as dangerous as the walking dead you’re surrounded by. Who do you trust? Who do you avoid? What parts of your instincts do you listen to? These are the questions “A Slow Burn” brings to the characters involved. One wrong choice could be very dangerous in this world. And you’ll be reading with fingers crossed and eyes glued to the page. All the characters are well rounded and belie the short length of this novella. The conversations are quick and well written and this is one of those filler free books that makes you glad you gave it a try. If books were music, “A Slow Burn” would be rock n’ roll. A modern day zombie book with a take no prisoners attitude and all the scares you can want. It’s a good thing when you can SEE what you’re reading playing out in your mind like a movie. And that’s what I found with “A Slow Burn”.
