The Dying Times by Brian Kittrell
With "Final Destination" like dreams, Nadene is often able to save the group from many ill-fated events thus taking her role as a leader among the adults. They begin to trust her "gut sense" and Nadene leads the group to their only means of a getaway...a helicopter...but it means traveling back the way they have come, thru the ever increasing hordes of zombies out for human flesh...some scenes are macabre and frightening and if you love zombies, you'll enjoy this book. I found once the zombies came into the picture, it was very hard to put the book down. I loved how Brian Kittrell uses some of the zombies in his scenes...and chuckled trying to imagine a few of them. The gore in the zombie scenes was just enough to visualize and left you wondering where they were going to turn up. I found the dialogue a little stiff at times and wished more effort was spent on the back characters by giving them a bit more life on the pages...I felt rushed in reading about them and wished I had a learned a little more. All in all, I found the book zomb~tastic and cannot wait to read more of this new series.
The Dying Times ~ Nadene's Story ~ is the first book in a new zombie survival series about post-apocalyptic world with flesh-eating undead zombies.
