once again Mr Tufo exceeds my expectations.
I knew it! cats & dogs can talk!
Whats not to love about this novella, apart from the odd human family that gets ripped to pieces, some weird a***hole of a redneck and the odd scare fest for the main characters.
Dogs act as you think dogs would act and cats, well they are cats.
Told from the PoV of the main dog, Riley, this tells of the initial horrorfest of zombie home invasion to the road trip they must take to visit a certain Talbot family.... not going to give the ending away but tears and grimacing will occur on your read through this book.
Some of Mr Tufo's best humour is in here, along with the heart break and gore moments.
Really looking forward to the next installment.
Just hope the dogs have learned to call guns, guns and not "thunder sticks" (my only moan!)

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting viewpoint 26 Oct. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of Mark Tufo's zombie stories, so grabbed this straight away. It's definitely good, and if you like his other stuff you'll like this too, perhaps not quite as good as his other work. Maybe I'm just not great at anthropomorphising.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really fresh perspective. 13 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Have read a lot of zombie stories but this one really caught my interest. In most stories the animals are forgotten or fleetingly mentioned as another danger (roaming gangs of feral dogs) or food ( must gather cows, chickens etc). However this story takes a different approach and looks at the whole breakdown of society and struggle for survival from the animals point of view. Riley isn't a super intelligent hero dog just a normal family pet determined that she will protect her 'pack' with her last drop of blood if necessary. Even the ones she doesn't particularly care for i.e. the cat! Mark Tufo has opened the readers eyes to a world most would not consider and by using the same world as his ongoing series 'Zombie Fallout' the reader is already emotionally invested in this world and its characters. Who doesn't want the "oldest female cub Jessie" to be delivered safely into the arms of her mate by the determined and stoic heroine Riley. I certainly wouldn't want to stand in Riley's way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its no fluke 15 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is up to mr. tufo`s usual high standards. Thr horror is horrifying and the humour is amusing. This book would appeal to a younger minded reader and i think a pet owner. The characterisations between the dogs and cat are quite observational and well written. The yappy mutt was really getting on my nerves after a while. It compares well to "Fluke" and is well worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pets v. zombies
This shouldn't work - humans & talking animals v. zombies - but it does.
It's witty, fast-moving and throws you straight into the narrative, with minimum exposition. Read more
