Reviews of Dark Bites(R): Part 1 - Windy City of the Dead by Robert Ropars

Nancy Allen reviewed on Aug. 19, 2012

The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I got this book as a free download from Amazon.

Crow is awaken during the middle of the night and runs out on the balcony. She's like what is going on? She looks off into the horizon and sees a big bright light. She runs inside and grabs her laptop and turns on the tv. She is searching the internet trying to find out what is happening and watching the news on tv at the same time.

Then she is texting her brother trying to figure it all out. Crow's brother is telling her to get out as fast as she can that the dead is turning into zombies. Crow knows about zombies unlike most people in books or movies. She knows that she will need weapons and what kind of weapons that she needs to survive.

I really liked how the writer portrayed the main character which is Crow in this book. She knew what to do. She knew how to protect herself. She knew how to fight the zombies. She didn't wait for some man or other character to take the lead and tell her what to do. Undoubtedly she has watched a few movies or tv shows about zombies.

I'm not much of a horror reader, and yet I'm so often drawn to the zombie stories. Why is that? They are the damned scariest of all scary things, and this is one author who's not shy about giving us the gory details. I found the writing very vivid, the images very clear. I enjoyed reading this strong female character taking action to help herself, and I only wish the characterization had been just a little more developed to do her better justice. (This may be why I'm not much of a horror reader, though.) Give this a try.
