After the End (zombie apocalypse) by Bonnie Dee

4.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed this book!, 8 Dec 2010
I love me some zombie books! And this was a good one.

As zombie apocalypse fiction goes, this is a bit different from your usual fare. The focus of the story is more on the relationships between the survivors, and less on the gore and blood. There's still chomping and gnawing and bloody entrails, but it is pleasantly interspersed with <gasp> a love story. All in all, a neat and fulfilling departure from the mainstream zombie buffet that seems to be proliferating the e-book world these days.

I was a bit skeptical about this one going in... C'mon, dragons?! But the free price tag and the rave reviews sucked me in. What did I have to lose, right?

I am so glad I took the plunge. The opening pages were a bit of work, but once I got used to the old English, it was smooth sailing. And I loved every second of it from then on!

The Dempsey Gambit by Ben Lacy
The Dempsey Gambit by Ben Lacy
4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed it!, 8 Dec 2010
I was intrigued by the premise of this book, so decided to download it and give it a read. Glad I did as I was thoroughly entertained from beginning to end. The fight scenes were well constructed, the pacing was brisk, and the characters were believable.

One of the things I ask myself when rating a book is this: "Did I learn something interesting and new?" This novel fully delivered on that level. Jack Dempsey came to life in these pages and I'm inclined to do some additional research on my own as a result.

Although there were some minor grammar flaws, they did not detract a great deal from the story telling. Overall, an excellent effort by the author!
