This is the first story I have read by the author and I was blown away by how powerful and affecting this short story is. I have read my share of zombie stories and this story grabbed my interest from the first sentence and kept me riveted to the end. It continued to be in my thoughts days later and that is the mark of a good story. It is very well written and you come to genuinely care for the characters and hope they survive the tale. This story is well worth the money and I look forward to reading more of the author's work.
