'Dead Cells', an action-packed and fast-paced story full of zombie carnage and horror. I've never read a zombie novel set in a prison before, I don't think, so it was something different for me, even though I've read a huge number of stories featuring the undead. And the prison setting was nice touch, revealing a motley assortment of characters - some nasty, some sympathetic - fighting for survival as a deadly virus begins to overwhelm the prison.
A very good read. This is stripped-down zombie horror as it should be!

Entirely set within a prison at the beginning of a zombie apocalypse, there's scope for a more-eclectic-than-usual band of survivors to battle their way to freedom. The setting is (by definition) claustrophobic and gave the novel a tension that gripped me throughout.

There are a good range of characters, all well written; the female doctor being particularly interesting. Again, given the setting, there is scope for some really nasty bad guys too.

My only criticisms are some basic syntactical mistakes (only a couple [that I spotted] and these don't bother me too much - but I know some of you burst blood vessels over misspelling) and in some places a tendency to wordiness in the descriptions. I think that both these things are criticisms to level more at the editor not the author.

Even with the gripes - this was a good read and I enjoyed it. If you like the genre and like the sound of survivors trying to bust out of a zombie infested prison - go for it.

Also, the author leaves scope for a sequel (which I think may have already been written).

Shane is an average man. He's never been in trouble before but now finds himself in prison. One stupid action has caused him to spend time in jail with murderers, rapists, gangsters
and paedophiles. He is up for parole soon and looking forward to getting back to his life with his wife and daughter. But when a new inmate arrives, bringing with him a deadly virus, it's up to Shane and a handful of survivours, to get out alive!

I have to admit that the concept of an outbreak in a prison really enticed me. Despite reading a lot of Zombie books, I never gave any thought to what would happen in a place where you are locked up! This is a new aspect of the genre for me, and I totally loved it! Imagine having a Zombie outbreak happen but you are locked up in a prison, with no hope of escape!! That is exactly what happens to Shane. He has to navigate the locked rooms and find an escape before it's too late.

I really liked Shanes character. He made one stupid decision but is paying the price. Despite his stint in jail, he wants nothing more than to put the past behind him and look after his wife and daughter. When the outbreak happens, his one thought is always of his family. That's what sees him through, and I admired his strength and tenacity.

The plot was fast paced, though I would of liked a little more back story on the origins of the virus. It just kind of happens and we get no idea from where or how? I also wanted a little more of an in depth look at the characters. There are quite a few but we don't get a sense of who they are. Also the time it took people to turn to zombies changed all the time, some changed quickly, while others it took days. Now I know that maybe the virus progressed but it should of been explained more.

I am turning into a zombie book fan and this story does justice to the genre. Sure, like most other books it has its share of flaws, for example under-developed characters, cynical outlook on prison life and a few grammatical errors. Nevertheless, if you overlook these deficiencies there is a fast-paced and exciting storyline, lots of action and something that keeps you guessing throughout. A bit unpolished around the edges but definitely worth a read!

I really enjoyed this book, it was refreshing to read a zombie book that wasn't populated by tier one spec ops
A good read that was hard to put down and over to soon.

A great little story about escape from a prison full of the dead. I loved the characters and although a reasonably short read I couldn't put it down.

I love a good zombie story, so I had high hopes for this one.
Set in a prison, you meet Shane, a guy on the cusp of release to go back to his family. But as luck will have it, a mysterious illness takes control leaving the prison in pandemonium.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story and characters and look forward to reading more of Shane's mission to find his little girl and hearing about the world outside the prison walls.

If good ZA books were semtex, Adam Millard's Dead Cells would have blown me to minuscule spots of gore. It's always a treat to stumble across ZA, that doesn't try to be too clever, or too different, and offers up a welcome, traditional, home cooked splatterfest. With great characters, and buckets full of humour, Dead Cells shows what an immense talent Adam Millard is.
