If you enjoy books about Zombies, then definitely read this one. When attacked but Zombies, or some other creature, you do what you must to survive, then you go on and do what you must to live your life...
This is an historically accurate novel which brings to the fore all of the emotions felt during and post the days of slavery. We fear, become angry, are filled with dread and terror as we read about the abuse incurred. Zachariah is a man who is forced to walk in two worlds, while remaining true to himself. Defiantly worth the read.
This is a book which sets the stage for others to come.... the introductory chapter and definitely needs to be followed by the others in the series. There are several story-lines and many questions left unanswered in this book. Worth the read of a new writer.
I am staying the middle ground with this novel, as while it is well written, there was nothing really very different about the novel. It seemed to have the same premise about a young man who came to another country to seek life. Many will enjoy this novel and I do encourage others to read it.
Have always found short stories interesting, as they are in fact mini novels, with the job of telling the complete story in few words. This does just that... it flows easily, has the serious, humorous and other emotes of life were you in the instance depicted. You want to continue to read to see where the story goes... and if it ends as you think it will.
