I can’t tell you how horrified I was by this book. It is truly a horror story. Not only does man’s best friend turn into a mortal enemy, but the characters are also forced to confront one another. It’s a dystopian nightmare where a deadly virus has infected family dogs, turning them into blood-thirsty “biters.” With the virus now spreading to humans, everyone is forced to either help each other or hurt each other to survive.
One of my favorite aspects of the story is the gleeful and brilliantly described violence and gore. I hate to admit how much I enjoy a creatively described death, but I do! There are sounds and sights and smells that Ellie Douglas describes about her world that are unforgettable! This reads like a great TV series: lots of characters (though not too many), non-stop tension, well-realized locations, and welcome bursts of comic relief throughout – because Douglas is also a witty writer. A creative, terrifying vision. I don’t think I’ll ever look at dogs the same way!

1. The editing, or perhaps just the way this authors writes irritated me at times, which is unusual as those types of issues I usually just let go.
2. This is the most important reason and truly why the three stars; This author appears to have a fetish about people going 'pee'. She constantly mentions it, I also noticed it was adult males usually that needed to 'pee', or be reminded to 'pee'. This seems odd to me as if a male needs to "urinate" and it's dangerous give them some sort of bottle. However, it wasn't usually anything to do with danger just something the author appears to have some sort of fetish about urination, or peeing as this author just randomly states, "Don't forget to go pee". Along with that there is also the constant reference to one of her male characters having to rearrange his privates due to erections at bad times. I've just never read a book where any author references 'peeing' as much as this one, especially in a zombie book. The rearranging of her characters package belonged perhaps in a romance erotic novel, but really doesn't seem fitting in a zombie book. I by no means am a prude I just found it annoying and a tad bit weird. It was usually male adults that had to do all this 'peeing'. Only once was it a reminder to a child and only one was it a dangerous situation, it was just random, and to many times in my opinion. It was just plain weird. I'm surprised we didn't get a blow by blow account of the zombie dogs needing to stop biting people as they needed to go 'pee' first.
I liked the concept of the story line about a virus that makes people ill by putting them into comas and dogs becoming zombies. Seriously, how about next book you write less about body functions as it really was unnecessary and frankly strange and just random, having nothing to do with the plot.
Ellie does not divert to another setting once the dogs get started, but rather stays right there with it until the bone crushing, muscle ripping demise of the victims.
Essentially, a deadly virus has infected the entire dog population, turning them into zombies and turning them into vicious hunters of humans.
Fortunately, the book's ending leaves the door open for a sequel as one of the survivors confronts a new, unprecedented terror.
