Review:

When Acadia agrees to go out on a date (well she says date but really she is just going to see if anyone takes her fancy) after her friends convince her its time to get back out there after the death of her husband she goes along with it thinking ‘well what’s the worst that could happen?’ If by worst you are thinking crazed people attacking everyone and those seemingly dead coming back to life as zombies you would be correct. She does get to work her inner minx before the real crazy stuff happens though so it’s not all bad at the beginning. After doing a circle of the hotel bar she has gone out of town to she spots her target. Well his hotness kind of grabbed her attention and wouldn’t let go, good job it goes both ways then. He might be with a group but no one looks paired up so it’s not long before she makes her move. She sure works fast getting him hooked but it’s when he gets her in the lift that things start to heat up in a very fun way. Now this would be the point to get into a room and have hours more fun but a lack of key card brings them back to the hotel bar.

Now this is where things start to go a little crazy, very fast. A group of people – the same ones she assumed were either drunk or high when she spotted them earlier – comes into the room with blood all over them. Always the practical one she tries to express her fears about them to Rod, her lift hottie, insisting they all leave while showing her gun in her purse in the process. After the initial shock of the people in the bar its not long before people rush to help the blood covered ones – including two of the girls from Rod’s table. He stops one getting close but isn’t quick enough for the other. Queue crazy time as its like a switch has been flipped and the brutal attacks start.

Talk about graphic craziness and what do the guys do, they run straight into the thick of it leaving Acadia with one very scared woman clinging to her for dear life. It’s a fight to get out but that’s just the start of it. She knows she just wants to get home but now feels like a mother hen with getting Rod, his two friends T-Bone and Ray Dean, and Barbara there too. When she says her place is like a fortress she means it but work needs to be done to make it even better protected. Its like a call to arms when she wants everyone rounded up. Love that she has a kind of ‘what to do if’ folder with ways to deal with certain attacks or events. Shame she doesn’t have a ‘what to do in the event of a zombie attack’ but hey she can improvise. She has gone into mission mode from the moment she is home but that doesn’t stop Rod wanting some answers about who she really is. Zombie attack or not he clearly still wants her and is constantly trying to win her with his charm and very good looks. Think its funny how she thinks he is too young for her (11 years to be exact) when she was 25 years younger than her husband. She can’t think straight around him but he won’t be giving up that easily, no matter the craziness that follows.

A very interesting group of people coming together on the farm getting battle ready for what’s to come. She can hold about a hundred but many more would cause too much attention. It might not just be the zombies they need to keep out either but the non-bitten too – especially those on bikes.

Interesting read that gets you gripped quickly as after that first attack its full speed ahead. Lots of characters mentioned which might make you feel a little lost at times but its to help set up the rest of the series. Suspense and romance read with zombies and crazy bikers thrown in for good measure – talk about a crazy ride. Lets see where it takes us next.

4 out of 5 stars
