Loved the inflection provided by Kristin Allison.
I have to admit, I was drawn to this book by its cover and decided to pass because it was “zombies”. Although I don't mind zombies once in a while, I'm not a big zombie fan...I was asked to read and review this book for a book tour. Deciding to give it a shot, I'm so glad I did!!!
I flat out loved The Last Bastion of the Living: A Futuristic Zombie Novel! It is a nail biting, fresh, futuristic, roller coaster that will have you riveted to the pages.
Vanguard Maria Martinez is a guard for the Bastion, the last living strong hold of humans. A virus has converted most of humanity into zombie like creatures that only crave to spread their virus by a bite. She is tired of her life behind the walls, all except for the time she spends with Dwayne Reichardt, an officer in the Bastion Constabulary (city guard). But they are keeping their relationship a secret because Dwayne is going through a divorce and he is a commanding officer over Maria.
Things are not going well for the Bastion, they are experiencing power failures, shortages and they need to expand the strong hold to include the farming areas they lost by a gate failure.
Maria is offered a chance to work with the Science Warfare Division to finally get a chance to destroy the Inferi Scourge (Zombies) that have taken the valley and close the gate. She jumps at the chance but might loose everything she holds dear.
Maria and Dwayne have an amazing love story. Although they are apart for most of the book, they share a bond that can not be broken. Dwayne gives Maria the backing, love and support she needs to be the amazing solider and heroine she is while fighting to protect her the only way he can.
The plot twists and turns are accented by brilliantly bloody action and amazing deceptions that will blow you away. The political mechanization will astound you.
I know Rhiannon Frater wrote The Last Bastion of the Living: A Futuristic Zombie Novel as a stand alone, but I would love for more!!!
The Last Bastion of the Living is a shocking, fresh, post apocalyptic master piece.
