Synopsis

"The virus has spread.''

In a moment of pure chaos, the majority of the Earth's population has become the walking dead. One man promises to help bring the truth to light.

"The lies have spread."

When journalist Jacob Plummer is infected, Jacob turns to the written word to not only ease the pain of change, but to bring to surface a truth far deeper and deadlier than anyone could have imagined.

"The truth must now be spread."

With the help of a rag-tag group of survivors, Jacob helps to fight off the growing undead horde in hopes of saving himself and the planet from the rot growing within.


My Thoughts

I Zombie I starts with a bang, literally right from the first line ‘The blast ripped through the air, stopping all time and thought’. So from the get-go, if you can’t stand the long wind up at the beginning of some Zombie novels, this book will appeal to you.

Jacob, a reporter, is awoken by the bang and the subsequent obliteration of most of the human population. Unfortunately, the human population reanimates and is quickly roaming the streets of Munich, looking for lunch....

This book has some good elements that aren’t the standard zombie fare – there are different types of zombies, a mad scientist and a very likable feisty red-head female lead who is pretty damn impressive in her knowledge and ability – a top choice to be with during the Zombie apocalypse.

And my favourite part of all is, you’ll never guess the ending.

A well written book and I’ll certainly be reading the next installment!
