Red Hill - Jamie McGuire

Red Hill is the first book I’ve read by Jamie McGuire. I’ve heard a lot of great things about her new adult romance series so this seems quite a bit of a departure from that genre. Sadly it showed. Red Hill brought nothing new to the zombie genre, and contained quite a lot of the same stuff I’ve read before. And I’ve read a lot. It also didn’t really go into any depth. Basically it’s the journey of several characters that find themselves fighting a zombie outbreak. There’s Scarlet, who’s…

Plague Nation

Plague Nation is the second book in the Ashley Parker zombie series and I enjoyed it a lot. It isn’t as good as book one, Plague Town, but it is still a really fun read. Ashley is a great heroine. I love her snark and attitude, but she’s also genuine and caring. This continues to show through her actions towards her friends. Gabriel on the other hand is a strange one. In the first book I thought he was soooo sexy, but here he is a little generic. I got…

Jax and the Beanstalk Zombies - Avery Flynn

To say I was skeptical about this book from just the title, would be an understatement. I put it on the bottom of my TBR for review pile. When I finally picked it up, I was hooked with the first sentence. Karma hadn’t just caught up with Veronica Kwon. It had gotten behind the wheel of a massive SUV, mowed her down, paused for half a breath then slid into reverse and run her over again. My first thought was this book is going for humor as well as adventure….

Ex-Heroes UK cover

Ex-Heroes attempts to mash together two of the hottest genres of the big screen, superheroes and zombies. This original idea succeeds in some ways but fails in others. This results in a reasonably enjoyable read, but it still had a few issues I found difficult to overcome. The plot of the book is centred on a group of superheroes, trying to protect the last of the humanity from the living dead, referred to as “Exes.” Holed up in The Mount, the old Paramount movie lot in Los Angeles, Saint George, Cerberus,…

Sue Edge - Dead Tropics

Dead Tropics was a really good zombie horror, and I enjoyed the author’s writing style. It’s the typical survival plot of a group of people helping each other to survive with one leader. Lori Nelson is an unapologetic heroine, killing zombies from the get go without hesitation, whether adult, child or baby. Going from an ordinary woman, performing the normal day to day routines, to an extraordinary woman, wielding a parang. The transition from one to the other is quick, but so is the action. It moves fast and furious,…


REVIEW: Skin by Kylie Scott

Skin - Kylie Scott

Skin by Kylie Scott (Flesh #2) Momentum (Feb 2013) Kindle Edition, 250 pages Erotic Zombie-Apocalyptic Romance After reading and loving Flesh, the first book in this series, I was really looking forward to reading Skin. The reason I didn’t pick it up sooner is because I was concerned about the premise. The heroine, Roslyn, is sold for food and supplies by the people she is living with. After the zombie apocalypse hit, Roslyn hid in the school where she had worked as a librarian. The guy who bought her is our hero,…


The Zombie Whisperer by Jesse Petersen (Living with the Dead #4) Self-Published (Jan 2013) Kindle Edition, 174 pages Urban Fantasy, Zombies Having read all the preceding books in this series, I was looking forward to reading the 4th and final book. After sadly being dropped by Orbit, the author decided to self-publish the ending to David and Sarah’s story. I have read other reviews which stated that the series didn’t really need another book, but I’d have to disagree. I’m really pleased that Petersen decided to publish a final book…
