Tufo consistently writes one wonderful story after another. This book addresses the show-down between the main character and his nemesis. Throughout the series, you remain completely invested in this family's life and by the end of the book, you feel as though you've been through it all with them. I'd love to see more on this series - I'm a diehard Mark Tufo fan now and will read anything he writes.
I was skeptical about introducing werewolves into the mix of vampires, zombies and witches - but it worked and kept me listening to the very end. It's strange to pick up after almost a century later AFTER the zombie fallout occurred but once you separated yourself from the Talbots and let this become your point of reference, it was a wonderfully engaging story. I would absolutely read the follow up book if one were to surface.
This is your typical zombie story told from a military perspective. It did take me a few chapters to thoroughly get into the story - but then I started to bond with the characters. There isn't a whole lot of interaction with the zombies on a close combat scenario - mostly military tactics and warfare. It was good enough though to check out the 2nd installment. So I will!
This is classic Molly Harper - amusing, light and entertaining. I always buy everything she puts out in the genre - it's just so fun!
The cover art drew me in and the story hooked me! This is not your typical zombie eats humanity story. It's more of a coming of age tale for a young zombie. It's immensely humorous and completely entertaining. The performance is believable and very well done. I'm going to have to recommend this as long as you are willing to change your perception about zombies being brainless moaning eating machines. The characters are wonderful and I can't wait to see what lies ahead for them in the 2nd book!
I'm so glad I found this because I've been a little worried that I may have exhausted my supply of Zombie fiction on Audible!
I couldn't buy this fast enough when I saw it released. I've listened to every single one of Frost's books and she did not disappoint with Once Burned.
Again, she creates a set of characters that you become completely invested in. Then she sets them on a chaotic action filled adventure packed with just enough heat to make it believable. I've read thousands and thousands of books - but NO ONE has ever written love scenes that affect me this physically until I read Frost's work.
The premise may not be an original one, but it's a storyline that I can't get enough of.....gifted human girl meets dark and mysterious vampire, lives are threatened and working through the issues, girl and vampire fall in lust. I love it. If you love this genre....it's a no-brainer!
I had no expectations starting this book, and it turned out to be one of my favorite series so far! Sure, it has vampires and witches and demons - but the story is so very original that it sets itself far apart from other works in this genre. It's done with intelligence and an almost self deprecating humor and the action was interesting and non-stop. After finishing this - I went right for the 2nd and 3rd in the series. If you enjoy paranormal testosterone driven action novels - this is the series for you. I highly recommend you read them in order. Enjoy!
By the end of this book, my blood pressure was through the roof and my nails were bitten down to the quick. It's no secret that King is a master storyteller, but I wondered how his work would translate into audio format. It turns out that was every bit as good as reading it. The first couple of hours where King begins to introduce us to the characters were lengthy and I did have to rewind a couple of times - but this is because there is a huge cast of characters in this story, and it simply takes time to describe them. But it's done so well that by the time the proverbial poop hits the fan, you are feeling the desperation of the "good guys" and are wishing long painful deaths to the villains. This is a super unique story that makes you ponder subconsciously the ethics and nature of human beings as well as feel as passionately and fiercely as the characters do. The dome situation is every bit as gritty and desperate as you would think....and it's such an original premise to have this localized apocalypse going on while the rest of the world functions normally! If you like reading apocalyptic fiction, you will certainly appreciate this book. The scientific research that was put into the story is very accurate and completely realistic which only adds to the horrible situation this poor community is in. The book downloaded into 5 parts - but they went by so quickly. Do not let the length of the book deter you....you will not regret it!
This is fun light paranormal storytelling that entertains but not to the point of eliciting emotion from the reader. It's a great story mainly about witches, vampires and demons and how they interact and make each other's lives difficult. The witchcraft aspect (such as the spells and materials they use) is quite interesting! The demon that we were introduced to in the first book has really developed into a despicable creature that we can all love to hate.
Overall, thought provoking and insightful, maybe not. But certainly fun and entertaining! Recommended to those who enjoy this particular genre.
I had this in my wish list for a long time; hesitating because I was worried it would be a dreary and dull 19th century novel with some lame zombies thrown in. I was wrong!! I've never been much of a fan of classic literature, but this reads like a modern work - yet so much better than 80% of the monotonous drivel that this genre is producing lately. It's absolutely hilarious and super entertaining. The narrator was absolutely perfect for this role – flawless in fact. The characters are vibrant...never dull and the story flies by. This book was so good; I just may re-read "real" Austen novels again! You don't need to be a fan of history or historical fiction to enjoy this book. It's simply a wonderfully written, action packed story with fantastic characters. A whole new take on the Zombie (ahem, I mean, Dreadful) Apocalypse. Don't let this fester in your Wish List - you won't be disappointed!
