This is a zombie novel with a twist, a mystic twist, and it makes for a very different sort of narrative. As if zombies weren’t bad enough, the writer has so much more in store for her readers, she threw in vampires, emerging psychic powers and a mystic labyrinth just to make it even more exciting. It’s a book that never lets a dull moment sneak into its pages, from start to finish you don’t know what is going to happen next.
Well written, with a quick pace. this is a book not to be missed, I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
