Product description

About the Author

Angela Scott hears voices. Tiny fictional people sit on her shoulders and whisper their stories in her ear. Instead of medicating herself, she decided to pick up a pen, write down everything those voices tell me, and turn it into a book. She's not crazy. She's an author. For the most part, she writes contemporary Young Adult novels. However, through a writing exercise that spiraled out of control, she found herself writing about zombies terrorizing the Wild Wild West—and loving it. Her zombies don’t sparkle, and they definitely don’t cuddle. At least, she wouldn’t suggest it. She lives on the benches of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains with two lovely children, one teenager, and a very patient husband. She graduated from Utah State University with a B.A. degree in English, not because of my love for the written word, but because it was the only major that didn’t require math. She can’t spell, and grammar is her arch nemesis. But they gave her the degree, and there are no take backs.

I was seriously disappointed in this book. Not because it's badly written, it's not. But because it contains so many elements that I dislike in a book. So, while not everyone will share my opinion, as everyone has their own hot buttons, this book was a fail for me.

You see, the blurb led me to believe that the heroine, Red, was a strong, kick-ass, take charge kind of girl. And she was in the beginning, right up until the point at which she started to fall in love. After that, she became progressively weaker, more often confused, more frequently in need of care, less capable of defending herself, drastically more easily moved to tears, more willing to be told what to do as opposed to instruct others and much more likely to make stupid, ill-thought out, life threatening decision based on misinformation and jumped to conclusions that could have been avoided with a mere conversation. She basically became a weepy, Too-Stupid-To-Live girl in love. Why does this happen so often in YA/NA literature?

Now some readers might read this book and think, 'awww, she found a good man to take care of her, how sweet.' Me? I read it and wonder where the girl who'd been taking care of herself went. I was MUCH more interested in her than the damsel in distress who was lucky enough to attract Trace's affection and protection.

The book could have done with a bit more character development. I can forgive its lack of worldbuilding. Zombie novels don't really need that much to be understandable. But these characters were hollow paper cut outs, with very little depth. The whole thing also felt very anachronistic (if I can use that word to say present things seeped into the past, as opposed to the other way around). Dialogue and personal values felt far too modern, as did money.

The author contacted me and asked whether I would like to read and review her book, after looking at reviews, I said yes. The book itself is about a very unique concept and one that had lots of potential. This is a good book, it's very unique and pulls the reader in from the very beginning, the only problem I had with it was that it seemed to lose its momentum towards the end. The beginning was great, it was strong and action packed and I loved it. It was the makings of a great novel. But then we reached the middle and it lost the momentum. Red the main character seemed to lose her kickass strong willed personality we came to love. Instead she became fragile and lost, scared, I missed the Red we were originally introduced to. The one who could take out a zombie with one shot.

Trace is a cowboy, whose life is interrupted when a fiery red haired girl walks in the bar and shoots a zombie in front of everyone. Trace thinks she looks familiar and it isn't until he sees the wanted posters he finds out who she is. Trace follows Red looking out to turn her in at the next town but things don't go as planned. Trace gets closer and closer to Red until he finds out the truth about the reward and he vows to keep her safe from her past. Red allows him to know her secret but she doesn't need his company and she damn well shouldn't want it. They outrun zombies until they finally catch up.

At the start Red was an incredible Kick ass heroine who could master any gun. I loved how unique she was, her fiery hair that matched her I-don't-give-a-damn attitude. I loved her at the beginning. What I didn't like was how in the middle she becomes fragile, alas I understand the pain she is put through but it seems her strong will was turned off with a flick of a switch.

When I saw this book was a zombie western romance, I was a little bit wary. I love zombies, but romance isn't my thing and I don't think I've ever read a western in my life. But I'm nothing if not adventurous, so I decided to give it a try, and I'm really glad that I did.

Told in alternating POVs of Red, a beautiful loner with a tragic past, and Trace (also known as Cowboy), who first encounters her in a wild west saloon, Wanted: Dead or Undead tells their story as they move through the country, looking for a safe haven from the zombie hordes. As their relationship moves from unwilling on Red's part, to friendship and finally love, picking up Wen and two children on their travels, Trace gradually discovers more about Red, and the secret she works so hard to hide.

I liked all the characters in this book, all are well drawn and likable, and it's impossible not to cheer for them as they make their way through some pretty hairy situations. And it's a very well written story - Angela Scott has a knack for making her words come alive on the page.

Probably my favourite part of the book, however, is Red and her secret. It's something I've seen only a few times before in zombie books and it's done exceedingly well here - but if you want to know more, you're going to have to read the book!

Although romance is really not big on my list of favourites, the romance between Trace and Red feels very natural and unforced - there's limited cheesiness and some pretty tender moments. I also enjoyed the Wild West setting - as I said earlier it's not something I've read before, but it does bring a whole new facet to zombie killing! Wanted: Dead or Undead is an enjoyable read, with some unique points, and I'll be definitely checking out the next book in the series!
