Giving this author one star is being generous. I do not understand where the good reviews are coming from. There is nothing original about this story and it bored me. Granted it was free, I can now see why!

A nice, quick, and unique take on the typical zombie story.

Review by: L. E. White on Jan. 27, 2012 :
Today I would like to review Locked In, the first book in Thea Gregory’s horror series, The Zombie Bedtime Stories. You can find her book on Smashwords as well as all of the major E-Book retailers.

This short story offers a fairly typical zombie apocalypse setting and begins at the first signs of infection. The main character is a new paramedic who then suffers through the disease. The story describes the onset of symptoms through to the death of the character in detail.

The beginning of the story did a pretty good job of grabbing your attention with an ambulance ride and a physical struggle. However, I didn’t feel the description of the diseases onset moved the story along with the same speed. I think the reader is quickly rewarded though when the character discovers their condition. The description of the rest of the story from inside the zombie’s point of view is fantastic.

I feel this story needed to be a little bit longer. It went too quickly by leaving out the mental anguish that was available but it is hard to say that it wouldn’t have actually slowed the action down too much. This is a judgment call that I would have probably made in the other direction. Besides this, I felt it was a very enjoyable read and would recommend that you give it a try.

One note, I have downloaded it in both a rich text format and the kindle mobi format. The RTF is full of formatting errors that do not exist in the other files.
