Love Zombies?
Meet our local Zombie Response Team, all dressed up with nothing to do but kill pretend zombies and peddle comic books. That is, of course, until they find themselves the only ones prepared for an honest to goodness zombie outbreak.
Now all our intrepid adventurers want to do is get home, but it’s not going to be easy. There’s nothing like an unexpected zombie apocalypse to derail the best laid plans.
Join our team of zombie hunters while they sharpen their wits, mow through zombies, and let the sarcasm flow with a sense of humor even the threat of death and dismemberment can’t curtail.
If you’re a fan of gory fun, dark humor, and miss that campy feel slaying zombies used to have, this is the book for you.

My View:

This book was so much fun!!!

(FYI Amazon made a mistake on page count. It’s really 243 pages not 154. FYI From the Author: Warning: Graphic details and foul language.

I’m not going to lie, I loved this book!! Roxy and KL are just a pair of zombie hunting cos players at a convention. Their day is about to go seriously wrong!

As with all Rhavensfyre’s work the little details and vivid descriptions were wonderful. The words trapped me and swallowed me whole. It truly felt like the main characters were real people and I was experiencing what they were.

While this story is a zombie thriller it does not take itself overly seriously. There are moments of levity and mirth, thankfully. I found good rock music in the background was a good choice. It kept me pumped and edgy.

One of the things I liked best about this story was seeing it from both KL and Roxy’s POV as they took turns telling the tale. Their inner dialogue were priceless. KL is such a sassy, smart-mouthed, sarcastic little brat (in a good way of course!). One of my favourite lines she had was when she was thinking about the slow, noisy elevator (AKA metal boxes of death)She likens it to a moaning unpaid whore.

Roxy is more steady, like her military training kick in and she works on strategy to get them all to safety and uses her authoritative voice to keep everyone (mostly) in line. They are both kick ass and awesome.

Unlike other Rhavensfyre works this one was not made to be a romantic story and there was no sex but it still managed to have some mushy bits. “Then KL was beside me and everything was OK in the world again” Awww right! There are other sweet moments but this one really stood out.

The story has lots of action and its got a good flow. Lovable and not so lovable characters that made you cheer or hiss, and is so gosh darn well written. Stop reading my words and go read this book!!!
