Synopsis: A sixteen-year-old girl wakes up in somebody’s front yard, and cannot remember a single thing. All she knows is that she was abandoned, has a bite wound on her shoulder, and a hankering hunger for meat.
Why would someone bite her? Who bit her? Are they still out there? Will they come back to finish their meal?
And really, honestly, most importantly- who is she?
THE DEAD LIFE is a humorous horror novel that will have you laughing out loud one moment and grossed out the next. Witty and gruesome, follow a teenager as she begins to understand her new life, temper her appetite, and solve the crime of who infected her with a deadly virus.
Review: I had to DNF this book at 43%. The book is good and funny, but I just wasn’t connecting with the book. It was a cool take on zombie novels, but it’s just unfortunately not for me at this time. I do want to try this book out again in the future though and have added it to my Amazon wishlist.
Verdict: It’s good, just not for me.
