Val was bitten by a zombie and now she’s scheduled for lethal injection. Breaking all the rules, Dean Walters snags vials of an experimental serum. But it can’t be tested until Val turns into a zombie: something authorities won’t allow. Her execution is scheduled to happen before transformation is complete, giving Dean only hours to break her out.
When their helicopter crashes straight into the heart of Zombie Land, his rescue mission becomes a fight for survival…and giving up on Val is NOT an option.
You know, I’ve been sort of harsh with my ratings on zombie books lately. Maybe because there are so many to read, maybe because I have actually read so many, or maybe it’s just because it is still one of my favorite genres but I have read so many lately that I am starting to get bored!
So, it was with an ample amount of trepidation that I set out to read this. When I found it I was excited but that excitement bailed on me before I could even open to page one!! Fortunately for me, and for many zombie lovers out there, this is not just about the zombies, this is about what we would do to save someone we love. And for that, I love this book!
Firstly the premise is pretty understanding, Val was bitten and Dean would do anything to save her. Now, this does also have some fun zombie stuff like…
“chainsaws weigh around ten pounds, compared to two-pound weapons like machetes, crowbars, trench spikes, or baseball bats. Remember, we’re looking ofr anythign that can crush or decapitate a skull in one blow. If it can’t, there’s no use lugging it around.”
And then you have the people… All of them are very different but we meet Claire and Jackie, well, they are just clueless! How can two people be SO clueless in a zombie apocalypse! It just killed me. But at the same time made me realize that people handle situations in different ways…
“Claire rolled her eyes. “I’m really not into violence.”
“I don’t care what you’re into. It’s all about survival now,” Val said. “‘Cause those things will tear you apart. They’ll munch on your flesh-gnawing, biting, and chewing-all while you’re still alive watching.”
Jackie threw a couch pillow at Val, “C’mon! That’s gross!”
All in all Zombie Chronicles has my favorite parts of zombie books. This is why I still hold a huge obsession with them, it’s crazy and horrific but at the same time, it’s dramatic and moving, and above all it’s just plain fun! Which describes this book exactly!
