Red always knew she would have to face the man who nearly destroyed her. She just didn’t figure it would happen so soon . . . With the plague sweeping across the nation, destroying many and turning others into walking corpses, survivors head West in search of a chosen land, a place designed to keep the infected out, while sealing survivors inside. In theory, the idea seems the only way to keep humanity alive. In practice, it doesn’t matter whether a person is on the inside or the out—there is no humanity. . . . And even though John Gatherum hunted her down and instigated their reunion, Red’s no longer the passive girl he once manipulated. This time, she has a hidden agenda of her own. Kill him. Save her family. Save herself.
Imagine it! Zombies in the wild west! What an exciting mixture of zombies and cowboys! That is the only world that Red has ever known. Red and her new family have found shelter in an old fort. Surrounded by thick walls they don't have to worry about the walking dead outside. New beginnings and a food shortage force Red and Trace to go salvage for supplies. With Red's special "ability" they can get closer to the zombies than most people.
Red and Trace soon run into trouble. Someone from Red's past has not forgotten about her and would do anything to have her back. They have some tough choices to make, not to mention there are a lot of people counting on them back home. Will they make it back in time?
When I first started reading this book, I was unaware it was the second book in a series. It was not until I was half way through that I realized it. There is enough back story that the book can be read by itself, though I really want to read the first to get caught up on all the action. The characters are wonderfully written and well liked. Red and Trace have to go through so much and still prevail. I also enjoyed the Native American characters we are introduced to. Aponi, a great healer and her little brother Kitchi, who is destined to be a great warrior.
I am a true zombie lover, I have read all types of zombie genre. Some great and some not so. This is one of the great ones. You can't go wrong reading Angela Scott's Zombie series.
5 ZOMBIE STARS
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 her 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.
