Angel Fire, New Mexico, is the ultimate destination for several survivors of the Zombie plague. The book chronicles their experiences in a broken world and includes some interesting characters not usually found in the genre. Examples include pilots, serial killers, doctors, and LBGT folks.
The book has plenty of action and shows cooperation trumps competition in a crisis.
If this is just another Zombie book, why should I spend my hard earned money on it? For that matter, why would anyone write a Zombie book to begin with?
For starters the characters in this book seem to make better decisions than most protagonists. They don’t leave you wondering why anyone would do something so stupid. The individuals in most horror books/movies/TV shows exhibit incredibly short-sighted decisions that really leave you scratching your head.
Also, the cast includes LBGT folks, not usually found in the genre, who are assimilated into the community of survivors. The interactions between the heterosexuals and the LBGT’s are interesting, uplifting, and inspiring.
Some of the characters are pilots who are able to escape using a private airplane rather than a car. This introduces a whole new range of problems and possibilities. You will be surprised at how useful a plane is to people on the ground and how effective even a civilian plane can be as a weapon.
The author strives to take you out of your mental comfort zone and into a world that is unimaginable. Everyone knows the Zombie threat is pure fiction, but it forces you to consider “what if?”
It’s also filled with useful ideas that might be valuable in any disaster. In the Zombie Apocalypse, it’s not only who you know, but what you know.
