Anyone who follows my blog knows I am a BIG fan of zombie books. I read a lot of them so it takes something special to stand out from the crowd. And Dead Hunger: The Flex Sheridan Chronicle by Eric A. Shelman is a definite shining star in my collection. I was so excited to find out that this is just Book I of the Dead Hunger series so I get to read a lot more of this one-of-a-kind zombie tale in Books II, III and IV.
The story centers around a really likable guy named Flex who is trying his best to take care of his niece and (hopefully!) find a cure for his infected younger sister in the midst of a horrific zombie apocalypse.
From the totally unique way the zombies came to be, to the touching relationship between the main character and his sister, this book really surprised me. It made me laugh out loud, tear up and really root for (and care about!) the people in this story. It’s amazing to me that a horror novel can offer up so much! Yes, it’s a fast-paced horror tale with lots of delightful zombie gore, but it also has touching moments and personal connections that completely set it apart.
Dead Hunger: The Flex Sheridan Chronicle has everything I look for in a horror novel: page-turning suspense, people I care enough about to invest in, unexpected twists and, of course, some squirm-inducing ick. I found all that and more in this book. I want to thank the author for such a great read!

Wow! Ok, I am not just excited about the total gem of a book called Geddy’s Moon. I am even more excited because I have found an amazing talent in a brand-new-to-me author named John Mulhall and can’t believe this is his debut novel. Yay! A fabulous new author to read!
The APOCs Virus by Alex Myers is a fast-paced medical thriller/zombie fest that grabbed me from page one. It is a fantastic, completely unique horror-filled trip with characters I will remember for a long time. And all this from a new-to-me author; love it when that happens! The story starts with
From the Edge of Darkness is a dark, terrifying, and utterly fabulous collection of Horror short stories by a super talented and new-to-me author named Kevin Saito. I stumbled on to his book on my website actually as a free promotion and downloaded it. I am so freaking glad I did!

This Zombie book is so much fun! Ok, Comfort, Colorado is a creepy, terrifying place and I never, ever want to go there. But I sure do love the way I got to travel through so many rich, seemingly-unrelated stories that all came together in a satisfying, albeit gory, conclusion. An
