Publisher's Summary

The red plague has devastated the human race, turning billions of people into zombies with red eyes and an insatiable hunger for human flesh.

The 212R virus sweeps through the population so quickly a possible cure is left to rot. Seventeen-year-old Maya Solomon may be the only survivor who knows where it is. But to reach the lab in Raleigh, North Carolina, she will have to outrun the infected boy tracking her every step and cross into a city swarming with monsters....

GOOD YA ZOMBIE

A virus turns people into zombies. 17-year-old Maya Solomon is alone and knows her chemist father has a cure so she starts off for his lab solo. She finds a zombie named Ben that seems to follow her, and even protected her. Then she runs into a small group of people including Pollard, who likes Maya. Book 1 seems to be an introduction of sorts into this 3 book series. I am guessing it's going to turn into a love triangle between Maya, Ben, and Pollard - but not sure yet, as Book 1 doesn't have much romance (very PG).

I'm excited to read Book 2 to see what happens.

SJW SURVIVES A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

I liked the idea behind this book because there is a "red" (zombie) that has some free thinking ability and this SJW is all about protecting him because he protected her. That is the only reason this book has two stars. It was painful and not a good read. The main character is an idiot. Some of the other characters are slightly redeeming however they are not fully fleshed out and this book was just bad because of it.

The main character is an annoying whiny snowflake that is very judgemental about firearms. She had something bad happen in her past that influences this -- HOWEVER she was not even there when this event occurred. Also, anytime it is mentioned it is only in passing with her thinking about the "incident". Because of this anyone that has a gun is a violent person and a gun nut. She is a squishy pathetic character that would be dead if this were a real situation. This book is a wet dream for a SJW and a joke.

Also, the narration was horrible for the main character she sounded selfish, egotistical and whiny. Exactly what you want for a main character in a ZOMBIE book! However, the other characters aren't bad so it's not the narrator's fault -- rather the writing for the main character. Over all this book just pissed me off. Don't be fooled by the good reviews this book horrible. Unless if you care more about flesh eating monsters and hate the LIVING people that kill them to protect themselves.

Good story

This was a good story, had the potential to be great except for the seemingly abrupt ending. I loved just about everything except that and her pacifism geesh doesn't she realize it she die there won't be a cure? Sometimes there will be sacrificed that need to be done to save the masses.
