Blood of the Dead: by A.P Fuchs
Being a fan of the zombie genre, I bought this book on a whim, just as a filler book to read between books that I was going to read. This however turned out to be one of the best impulse buys I have made. The book has a group of likeable characters that grow and develop through the book. As things get tough for them you find yourself mentally cheering them on, and hoping for their survival.
As the characters Joe, Billie and Des are forced to leave The Haven in search of a ‘safer place’ A.P Fuchs does a great job of building the sense of impending doom that surrounds our group of heroes as they make their way to the city. Once there the trio soon meets a man named August who had lost everything and is looking for someone to connect with.
Even with the addition of August, things steadily get worse for the group and send them on a crash course to hell and back again as they try and find a place to live if relative safety.
This book is well written and has everything you want from a zombie thriller, plenty of zombies, plenty of action and a few laughs on the way. Once you have finished Blood of the Dead you will want to pick up the second book in the trilogy and sink your teeth right into it. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
