I was the bravest, fiercest warrior, singlehandedly stopping the zombie apocalypse and earning the respect and admiration of those who fought with me. Just kidding. I pretty much peed my pants and wasted a ton of ammo. At least everyone else shot what they were aiming at. Me? Not so much. This is my story—me, Candace Marshall, the world’s biggest scaredy-cat, facing my biggest fear. Zombies. It was awesome. (As in, not at all.)
Candace Marshall hates zombie movies. She hates anything scary, in fact. In his usual, not-so-thoughtful way, her boyfriend surprises her with advanced screening tickets to the latest zombie flick, complete with interactive features and a tour. She refuses to watch it, but it doesn’t matter.
Horror becomes reality when an experiment gone wrong transforms her peaceful town into a mess of slathering zombies. Thrown together with the only other survivor, Gavin Bailey, her favorite actor and secret crush, she somehow fights her way through the mess, making plenty of blunders and surprising herself with…courage?
But, just when Candace thinks it can’t get worse than zombies, it does.

Great story line.
This book was AMAZING! I absolutely loved every single word of it (and like Candace, I'm not even a fan of zombies or know anything about them)! It was crazy action-packed and had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Not only that, but I was so very tempted to go to the last chapter to see who survives (which is a huge no-no in my eyes) because if a certain love interest was no longer in the picture, I would have been massively devastated. Candace has to be one of my new favorite character's as she was hilarious. I loved her outbursts, bobblehead likeness, and love for others. She was so genuine in all she did, especially when it came to protecting others. Overall, I definitely recommend this book to speculative readers who like paranormal, but also want a Christian message woven in. High action, romance, and a surprise ending makes "Zombie Takeover" an excellent read!
