An unknown virus is sweeping the country and people start staying home when reports start of infected people attacking normal people. Worried retailers fear going out of business and decide to tempt people back to the shopping malls by having a massive Apocalypse SAle. Lots of people rush to the bargains but so do a few of the infected...
I was really amused by the concept of this one. Retailers desperate to get shoppers braving the plague, shoppers greedy enough to risk their life for a few dumb bargains on things that mean zip when the apocalypse comes! I liked the reference to it being the Black Death sale instead of Black Friday!
The story then moves onto a traditional zombie melee where shoppers are attacked all through the mall. I liked the descriptions of the zombie attacks, the people running for their lives, the human side to those about to be eaten. I thought it was well written, it flowed nicely and the author obviously knows how to entertain with her zombies! It lacked the tension of people trying to sneak away and hide that you get in full length zombie novels but this being a short story, it didn't need that element to keep me interested. I liked what I saw here so I'm taking the plunge and buying the first two novels in the series.
