The Zombie Chronicles - Chrissy Peebles
The Zombie Chronicles is the first novel in the Apocalypse Infection Unleashed Series. This book is free for the kindle. This novel is also part of a collection of five stories called Suspending Reality, all by Peebles. The collection is also free for the kindle. Dean Walters is just seventeen when a virus strikes, turning the world into a nightmare. A nightmare where people are turned into zombies by the mysterious virus. A year later Dean steals an experimental vaccine, and tricks is brother Nick into helping him smuggle their sister Val out of a protected city. Val has been bitten and that's a death sentence. Dean and Nick have many adventures trying to avoid zombies and keep their sister alive. The story is suspenseful and has plenty of action. It's stilted in places, and the chapter transitions read like a TV screenplay with commercial breaks built in. The worst is the non-ending, with a huge cliff hanger. That said, I still recommend this book for all the zombie junkies out there.
