Smashwords book reviews by Olivia Twiss

  • Z-Day Series: Book 1 First Burnz on April 23, 2015

    Firstly, may I just point out how competitive this genre of novel is. There are a million Zombie-Apocalypse type books out there, and most of them, sad to say, stick to a very basic outline. Zombies appear out of nowhere, they bite people, somehow the military has fell, blah, blah, blah, but I think that this is a bit different. Firstly, you solved the problem of the military falling, as it has developed and become air borne. I think lots of people forget the fact that viruses can mutate and change over short or long periods of time, so it is interesting to see how you have added that. The characters were developed well, I think, although a little more description in places would not go amiss, as Alexis said, but I do know that it can be hard to fit it all in, so just keep trying and you'll get there. The perspective, I thought, was a good choice, although it would be nice, if you do continue the series, to have somebody else's point of view in, like Ellie or Courtney, somebody who could tell us how they see Kate, how she appears to the group. The emotional scenes mixed with the humour makes for an amusing yet sad at times read, which I think is a good quality in a novel, and there are so many cliff hangers you can't help but turn the page! At the end of each chapter you are just itching to read on, and you really get to care about the characters, and what's going to happen to them, and they don't just feel like strangers. Adding in the dogs and puppies gives the Zombie Apocalypse an almost humane feeling, so I liked that, and... well, I could ramble on forever, but I think I've gone on long enough. I hope to see more from you girls in the future, and it will be interesting to see the next book in this series. Good luck!
