Is their fate already sealed? Can they find a cure before it’s too late? See what happens through the eyes of the infected when Cassie tells you how Zombies are people too.

REVIEW

The first chapter had me wondering what I was letting myself in for. Never had I read a book from a zombie’s point of view. In fact, I’ve never had any sympathy for zombies – until now.

The plot is original and moves at a fast pace. Paranormal romance fanatics will enjoy the romance in this quick read. I especially had a good laugh at the scene where they were on a high-speed chase from the police, racing through a cornfield and then a forest, and zombie Rose on the back of the truck being whipped to no end by cornstalks and tree branches. Imagine me lying in bed, trying to laugh as quietly as I can so as not to wake hubby, at the author’s tongue-in-cheek humorous description of the priceless look on Rose’s face that makes you want to double over with laughter. For this alone I highly recommend the book.

The kindle version I received for review needs to be formatted and edited some more, but overall this is a really nice story which I recommend for YA fans new to the zombie genre.
