I am a podcaster, movie and music lover, owner of the Talkingship website, and long time secret writer. I decided to sit down and force myself to finally put together a story and get it into people's hands. That happened with the release of my first novella, Deadlocked, on November 9th, 2011.

The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I was given a copy of Deadlocked from the author for a review.
Book #3 tells Billy's story of his journey through the city on his way to his mother's home to rescue her and take her to safety. Along the way Billy meets a military man who gives him some inside info on how the zombie virus started. He also meets two brothers that were very close to each other. While growing up the two brothers only had each other that they could count on and that was always there for the other one.
Billy has to make some tough decisions and choices but he does what he has to in order to stay alive to survive the zombie apocalyptic catastrophe. Billy is a guy with a very big heart and kind of naïve who feels real bad about some of the things that he has to do to survive. He had to kill a couple of guys but if he hadn't killed them they probably would have killed him.

I found the mystery to be exciting and thrilling - especially considering I could totally see see this happening in our world today! But of course, my favorite part were the ZOMBIES!
When it comes to the disgusting, man-eating creatures, A.R. Wise does not disappoint! His zombies move a little faster than others I've read about, they can walk underwater, and change within a matter of hours after death. It was great! LOL. Their ruthless pursuit of flesh makes every moment terrifying. Even as you read, you want to make the characters hurry up and you practically want to shout at them!
And speaking of the characters - I loved them all - every single one. There are only a handful that last throughout all four novellas and I love that Wise was not afraid to kill some of our favorites - it made the story all the more realistic. The character of Laura, a mom desperately trying to make sure her kids stay safe, is the most bad-ass character I've read in a long while. She lives through some crazy painful experiences just to keep her children from turning into zombies. Her risk-taking courage is actually quite inspiring.
