This book came to me by way of a friend. It was described as zombies and Walking Dead with a kick butt female. Let’s do this!
This book was like a breath of fresh air. It’s unique and totally engaging. It also has a Walking Dead vibe to it and I was there for it. Yeah I went there but it’s true. The beginning hooked me. Once you read it, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Thank you Miss Crow! As the book progressed, I was more and more pulled and invested in the story. These characters had become my family. The author was able to make me feel so many things from sadness to anger then had me laughing. Ah good times.
This is the first book I’ve read by this author and certainly not the last. I’m officially a fangirl and I look forward to reading more! If you’re a fan of the Walking Dead and strong females that kick butt but also want something new and unique to read, this book is for YOU! You won’t be disappointed. I give this 5 stars
