The zombie apocalypse has come and gone, the world has ended, and humanity has crumbled.
But nobody told the aliens.
And it seems that alien brains have some interesting side effects on the ravenous undead. Just ask zombie Li, who “wakes up” after a quick bite. The world is a wasteland, she’s a walking corpse, and her “snack” has just melted into a noxious puddle of goo.
She’s had better days.
But she won’t go through the rest of her undead life alone. As Li hits the road to figure out what happened, the end of the world brings her strange company, and even stranger enemies. The aliens are coming back, and it’s going to take more than a handful of quirky zombies to stop them. She’s going to need some serious fire power—like the remnants of the human race.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What did I just read?? This type of read is so outside of my element, but it was certainly an excellent book! I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading about zombies, aliens, especially them in combination, and those who like post-apocalyptic fiction with a bit of a humorous twist. Also to anyone on the fence about reading it will likely find it quite entertaining.
The author Kristin Jacques is an excellent writer. The characters were simple and straightforward but the scene and character descriptions were colorful and exciting. Though it was written in the first person point of view, I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it. The prose was casual and contained subtle references to pop culture, which made it fun and relevant.
The plot was well-though-out and the sequence of events made plenty of sense out of nonsense as the story unfolded into a tale of suspenseful twists and hilarious subplots. There were a few parts that were a bit much for my sensitive soul, but with the action, anticipation, and drama, it’s one that I didn’t want to put down.
