A Terrifying Halloween Treat!
on 17 October 2012
After joining forces with a small band of intrepid survivors, Dean and Nick pursue a mysterious survivor who betrays the brothers and their deathly ill sister Val by stealing the only thing that can save her.
Now the siblings are trapped with the zombie hoards and must use their wits to survive, a horrifying ordeal that tests the bonds of family loyalty. This one had me on the edge of my seat, and I couldn't flip through the pages fast enough!
"Apocalypse Unleashed" reminds me of the best of the zombie genre--at its most scary, crazy fun. I also got to know and really care about these characters--Dean, Nick and Val, of course, but also Jackie and Lucas and Claire. Trapped in the land of the walking dead, with their vehicle stolen from them, these spunky survivors encounter horror after horror before finding a truck and chasing after the survivor who stole the vials that could cure Val's affliction.
Cue ticking clock! The story twists and turns in unexpected ways as Val begins to "go native." Be prepared to be surprised, moved and scared out of your wits! It made me want to bolt the doors and bar the windows. And watch out for that nail-biting ending! Highly recommended.
