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 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 […]

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: Resident Evil Afterlife

I’m a fan of the Resident Evil franchise. Not for the depth of plot. Not for the acting. Not even for the special effects any more. It is what it is: a shameless gender exploit. Mindless thriller fiction. Sure, it’s technically horror still, because zombies. But it stopped being scary (even to me) after Apocalypse. […]
