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.

This was an interesting idea and a great story. I was hooked from the first page and the pace belted along and carried me right to the end. Although the bulk of the story was just two characters, they worked well together and reeled me in. The horror was subtle, and that made the story all the more creepy. Rather than out and out gore, most of it was psychological and that made it worse! This was another great addition to the DarkFuse library.

This was a thrilling story. I was gripped from the first page, and couldn't put the book down. The idea was an interesting one, and one that could so easily happen which makes for unsettling reading! I felt for Terry as he made his perilous journey to find other survivors, and his devastation at losing everything that mattered to him. The pace was spot on and the ending was brilliant. A good sci-fi thriller that kept me glued to the page.
