Deadfall, the latest novel from The Kult author Shaun Jeffrey is is take on the zombie genre. Now before some of you sigh, I know who you are, and I generally feel the same as you but , this book goes swims against the tide and is a great zombie book.

A team of mercenaries led by Amber Redgrave the feisty female heroine of the novel have been contracted to rescue two children being held hostage by rouge ex-soldiers. Unknown to the team this is a ruse and the real danger is far more horrific.

On the flip side are a pair of eco warriors Jill and Lofty who by sheer chance, when they decide to check out a local test facility, end up helping out the team of mercenaries when the proverbial hits the fan.

This is the second novel of Shaun's from Leucrota press, sees Shaun on full on action mode, to call this a zombie novel would be a great disservice to his writing. This is not a case of jumping on the zombie bandwagon, far far from it. Yes there is an army of stinking rotting reanimated corpses, yes the only sure fire way to kill them is a shot to the head. To me this was more of an adventure novel, like those of Jeremy Robinson and Jonathan Mayberry, than a horror novel, which in my humble opinion is a good thing. This novel deserves to read by a much wider audience than that of the mere zombie fan. Don't get me wrong there are plenty of gruesome and terrifying scenes for the discerning horror writer. I just feel there is so much more to this than a zombie novel.

The action scenes are handled with great confidence, it is easy to see why Shaun has become one of my go to authors, even though this is only his third published novel, he has developed his own style of writing. Strong, and sleek with good well thought out characters.

Writing the review as thoughts are still fresh in my mind. Just finished the book. Wowzers.

Just from seeing the cover, I just knew this was a book for me. It just freaks me out. Yet I was still curious, bit like when you're watching a horror movie and you've got your hands in front of your eyes but you're still peeping between your fingers, that kind of feeling. So that's why I decided this book would be next in line after reading The Kult and acquiring all of Shaun's other Ebooks.

This is definitely one of those "can't put it down" books. I just had to know what was happening next.
The plot is extremely fast-paced. The whole story covers just over 24 hours, and is packed with action and suspense. There isn't a single "dead moment", and the reader gets drawn into the story right from the start. But what I thought made this book totally awesome, is how it was a totally different experience to watching zombie movies (zombie book virgin I was until I read this one). It's a complete experience for the reader. One that involves all the senses. Sight and hearing obviously. But also touch, taste, smell, through the cleverly written descriptions. The reader is a witness to the scenes, but also feels like the characters. Nothing is left to imagination, every single detail is included. Well apart from what actually rotting zombie flesh smells like, but still, I just guess it's pretty close to chicken that's gone off if not worse.

As usual, you can expect the unexpected twist when you expect it the least. And expect to not have any idea about the end. Because it won't end the way you're thinking it will. Or maybe it will, but that's after you've thought about every single exit scenario. Gosh Shaun's books totally mess up with your brain...

A smashing read.

Zombies, and lots of them. What's not to like, eh?

Amber Redgrave is a security consultant -- that's bodyguard to you and me -- who, after a disastrous assignment jumps at the opportunity of redeeming herself when a chance phone call offers her a place on a covert operation to rescue two child hostages. The plan is to helicopter into a remote wooded area where the hostages are being held in a disused mining village, release the children, and then get the hell out of there, all before sunrise. What ensues, however, is carnage in the form of reanimated corpses intent on only one thing: killing the mercenaries and eating their flesh.

Shaun Jeffrey has taken an oft-used plot of people trapped by overwhelming numbers of zombies and breathed life into it -- proving that life can reside in the undead. The "virus" that brings these zombies back from the grave is a refreshing alternative to the usual methods of contamination, and serves as a positive means to push the story along while providing an important subplot.

This novel is certainly not short of pace, as it zips along at breakneck speed with barely a chance to pause for breath between chapters. Amber is instantly likeable, and not just because she's a determined heroine who gives as good as she gets, but because we are allowed to see her vulnerable side in the form of failed relationships with her former lover and suicidal brother. Her constant battle for acceptance with Eddie, one of the mercenaries in the team, is what really pulls her character development along, and the way their relationship changes as the book hurtles towards its climax is a nice touch by the author.
