Synopsis from Goodreads :
A young woman, Fran, seeks refuge from the cold in an Ohio farmhouse. Wanting to forget the past several months and the horror she has witnessed, she convinces herself that she is safe, at least for the moment. Relaxing and enjoying the winter scene, she falls asleep and wakes to a new nightmare. Soon she learns that what happened at the beginning of the Zombie Apocalypse wasn't the worst of it. There was more to the virus that created the monsters that now ruled the earth. The infection was mutating and what was coming next may mean the end for all those left alive.

My Review:
I received this eBook for free from the author on Review Seekers on Facebook in exchange for an unbiased review.

I've seen and own so many zombie movies it's crazy. I never in a million years would have thought that I'd read a tale about zombies that was so fresh and different from any movie I've ever seen. This story blew me away! I can't rave about how much I loved reading every word. The author's spin on the zombie genre had me surprised at every turn and was told so vividly, I was freaked out! I live in Ohio, you know, and very close to where the story takes place. You will be shocked by the ending--I know I was! This is an absolute must-read for every zombie fan!

  1. I'm not a big zombie fan, sometimes they work for me, sometimes they don't. But I really can't do too scary and this one sounds like it might be too much for me. So glad you loved it though!

    1. I really did love it, but I've always been a huge fan of zombies. They're so scary! Although if a zombie apocalypse really did happen, I don't think I'd be a zombie fan any longer, lol.
