I read this book so quickly, I could barely believe it. The main character’s drive consumed me the way the zombies in the book consume the living.

Tim Kempfer if not a warrior. He’s a librarian on a very simple mission: kill the zombie that murdered his wife and son, and if needed, end them as well. How does he know which zombie he needs to kill in a post-apocalyptic, quarantined Seattle? Easy: his wife’s death was on the news, and it was so graphic and iconic of the disaster that the broadcasts have been playing it on a loop.

Review: Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire

Review: Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire

April 21, 2017 Review 0

This gorgeous illustrated novel is one of the scarier things I have read. Nearly a collection of short stories, the tale is told by three strangers around the table of an inn. It’s a story about war, plague, human weakness and vampires.

These vampires are original and disgusting. The translation of the horrors of the Great War as literal monsters is very effective.

5bat! Review: Sinners (Monster Hunter Memoirs #2) by Larry Correia and John Ringo

5bat! Review: Sinners (Monster Hunter Memoirs #2) by Larry Correia and John Ringo

At this point I’m pretty sure that John Ringo asked himself at the beginning of each Monster Hunter Memoirs book what was something cool that he could add to the Monster Hunter universe that Larry Corriea hadn’t done. With GRUNGE John Ringo answered the question, what would happen if a monster hunter could talk to monsters? In SINNERS, John Ringo takes on what would happen if everyone knew about monsters?

Review: Feedback (Newsflesh #4), by Mira Grant

October 17, 2016 Review 0

It felt so good to fall back into the world of Mira Grant’s Newsflesh novels, that as I worked through the book, I read faster and faster until the dramatic conclusion. Medical paranoia and zombie based intrigue make for an exciting novel that brings back the excitement of reading the first three books in the series.

Review: Fellside, by M.R. Carey

Review: Fellside, by M.R. Carey

April 12, 2016 Review 2

Some people may call FELLSIDE heart-breaking, but that is too gentle. The book rips out your heart, stabs it with a shank made from an old toothbrush, and finishes it off with a few good whacks with a fire-extinguisher for good measure. This book is incredibly violent, but also incredibly touching, with characters that will stick with you long after the last page.
