This was a huge departure for Matt. For his first foray into the supernatural romance this was a more than decent effort. The characters were true to life, and the story flowed well. I liked the going back and forth between past and present as it gave me a chance to get to know the characters properly. I loved the story, and I am unashamed to admit that I had tears rolling down my cheeks come the end. It's nice to see Matt DOES have a softer side and it would be nice if he brought it out more often!

I liked this, but I didn't love it as much as others of Gary's I have read. It was ultimately a sad story and was quite stark in places. I enjoyed the build up to the end, and the tension crackled in the second half of the book. I truly felt for Meg being left alone so soon after her tragedy, and how fragile her mind seemed to become. Somehow though this just didn't seem to flow as well as others I have read, that being said it was an enjoyable story that I would still recommend.

This was creepy and scary, and I found myself totally unable to put it down. I was totally drawn into Stacey's terror as things escalated, and her life started to fall apart around her. The descriptions were vivid, and the tension was palpable and kept me glued to my Kindle. The ending was literally explosive, and (pardon the pun) blew me away. I loved it, and I think fans of haunted house stories will love it too!

This was a belter! I have long been a fan of Allan's work and this one is in my favourite genre of serial killer thriller. The story started off with two distinct threads, and as the story shot to it's startling conclusion they begin to merge into one. The characters were solid, and the story packed a giant punch. Allan certainly knows how to wring out the emotions of a reader, and ramp up the tension! Apart from a couple of squeamish moments, this relied very much on show don't tell. I recommend this totally for fans of the genre, Allan Leverone and Darkfuse.

I loved this. It was a great idea to get Christine on board and take the apocalypse to the US, it added a whole new dimension to the series. The characters were brilliant, and their backstories made them seem real. There was even the obligatory bad guy everyone loves to hate! The pace was relentless, and the ending left the way clear for more. This was another great addition to Ian's Zombie Armageddon series, and with Christine Sutton on board there is a wealth of new content to come hopefully.
