Parasite:Blood Oath by Ian Woodhead

This is the story of Dan and Alison. One night they decide to to sneak into the caves where they work. Once there they stumble on some old bones. Bones with unusual teeth formations. Their boss, seeing pound signs flash in front of his eyes, calls some archaeologists. Unbeknownst to all of them a terrible horror has been unleashed on their village - and it is out for vengeance.

This was simply fantastic. It was a step backwards in a sense for Ian as it harks back to his writing before Zombie Armageddon, but much more polished and better written. It was a truly scary read and no punches were pulled. It belted along and the conclusion left me gasping for more. I understand there IS to be a sequel, and I certainly cannot wait!

Falling of the Bones by Ian Woodhead

This is a compilation of Zombie:Armageddon books 1 to 3 plus a bonus novella, ZombieDead.

This works well as one volume. It means that readers can get right into the world of Zombie Armageddon in one hit, and at one great price. The addition of ZombieDead is a nice touch. While not of the same series, it is of the same genre and fits well. I have already reviewed all four of these books before so I won't rehash them here. Just be aware that the violence and gore is brutal and unrelenting. I recommend these as an introduction into Ian's work. He just keeps getting better!
