Embrace of the Dead by Ian Woodhead
This is another belter by Ian. He is fast becoming the master of the zombie genre, I have yet to read one of his that I haven't liked. Once again the characters are believable and tangible. The village of Seeton was lifelike and just sleepy enough to be realistic. The story flowed nicely, and I found myself rooting for Dean and Alison to get through the horror intact. There were the obligatory odious characters you just have to love to hate and Ian does seem to make them particularly obnoxious! The ending was satisfying and I wasn't disappointed.
I recommend this as a must read for fans of Ian's and also to newcomers as it is not your usual run of the mill zombie slash fest.
Disclaimer....this is my review for ZombieDead as this is the same story re-edited and with a new cover and title.
