Review: The Zombie Virus Book One | Paul Hetzer

Zombie Virus is a solid, methodical and well-researched addition to a genre that is usually overburdened with half-baked action scenes and infection backstories with the depth of a shallow puddle. Enter Paul Hetzer, and book one of his Zombie Virus series. The first few chapters are overwhelming – from the prehistoric origins of the virus, […]

Review: Time of Death Asylum (5*)

When I read Festa’s first zombie novel, ToD Induction, I read it in one sitting. Her writing style was gripping, and whilst not unique in plot, her storytelling was ruthless, the action non-stop, and I found myself fully invested in the survival story – and tragedies – of the Rossi’s. The narration of Sarah Tancer […]

Review: Suffer the Children by Craig Dilouie

It’s not often that a book actually haunts me. I have been engaged with books so much that I haven’t put them down, cover to cover. I’ve recoiled from text, winced in sympathetic pain with the character(s), and wept in sadness at a favoured characters’ demise. What I rarely experience from a novel, is the […]

seven zombie books you need to be reading right now – and why

  The horror subgenre of the zombie is well known, loved, and completely crammed with books right now, and not just from self-published authors (though they do constitute a huge percentage of this). Most zombie fans know their Max Brooks, their Walking Dead, and their… well, the other ones. What this list is going to […]

Book Review – 4* – Stone Soldiers #6 Armadeggon Z by CE Martin

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. This was actually the first in the Stone Soldiers series that I’ve read, however, after this, I will be seeking out the rest of them! This was a […]

Review of Time of Death: Induction by Shana Festa

I tried desperately to find a flaw in this book. Really, I did. Not so I could be nit-picky in my review, but so I could turn around and give a reason, any reason, for me to not say “I wish I’d written it”. don’t waste time – pick up your copy now This is […]

Review: Pulse by Eloise J Knapp (4*)

Pulse Pulse is a new series from zombie horror author Eloise J Knapp. If you’re interested in hearing from the author, I interviewed her for the blog over here. Did I say I was squeamish yet? I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned it once or twice. Well, Pulse pulled on some strings and, in summary, it […]

Review: The Undead Situation and the Undead Haze by Eloise J Knapp (5*)

The Undead Situation | The Undead Haze As a squeamish fan of post-apocalyptic horror, I like to come across books that concentrate on the way humanity deals with the end of the world, rather than the monsters that cause it. The Undead series by Eloise J Knapp is just such a work. And my, isn’t it […]

Review: Dead Meat by Chris and Patrick Williams (5*)

Dead Meat is a US-based horror story. It sets itself aside from its peers by being small-town and centred around a core of protagonists. Our potential antagonists are… well… everybody else. That’s the tone Dead Meat sets, and it’s one hell of a ride.   This book is not for the faint of heart, those […]

Review: Among The Living by Timothy W Long (5*)

Among the Living is a US-based horror story, set in Seattle. This is a review of the unabridged audio version of the book. I *really* liked this work. Set in first and third person perspectives and showing us the lives of four different protagonists, it gives us a glimpse in to their lives and personalities […]
