I did think the graphic language warning and violence warning was a bit overkill. I have seen quite a bit more cussing and violence in some YA novels. But oh well. 😛
I definitely loved that this one took place mostly in a plane. Yes, I have read quite a few zombie books but never have I had one that took place in a plane. On the airport, yes, but an actual real flying in the air and oh boy you don’t want zombies there plane? No. So I was definitely delighted, and creeped out. Would our girls survive this, because when stuff goes to hell, stuff goes to hell real fast and real horrifying.
It was definitely a bit standard, it starts of with peace and quiet, just a few hints here and there that something might be up, that something will go down. People coughing, people half-vomiting, people acting a bit weird, not getting a connection to loved ones. But I really love it when that builds up to a good zombie. 😛
It was a bit sad that the blurb already spoils how the zombies came to be. That wasn’t mentioned until the last few pages of the story.
The two MCs, or well, I do call them that though Kylee is the one we follow on this crazy ride. I loved both of them to bits. They were just so kick-ass. Nothing like how some people are during the zombie apocalypse, with these 2 we might just stand a chance. Unlike most people who would just try to restrain a zombie even when it is clearly not going to stop eating and munching, Jade just tackles zombies left and right, and even Kylee is getting into it quickly. They really saved a lot of people that day, though I do wonder how many will survive in the end. 🙁
Cheri was a nice addition to the story, and I can’t wait to see how she will survive. She got 2 kick-ass ladies helping her out, so I am sure she will be able to survive.
I will check out Jade’s story in a bit, and then see if I can find the second book. I am quite sad that I can’t find anything further than book 2. I did find a cover reveal for the third book, but that is over 3 years ago. Such a shame if this series never got any further than book 2.
I am glad I decided to go for this book, the blurb definitely pulled me in, the cover just said NOPE to me (sorry if that is harsh but I love a good book cover and often get turned away if a cover is just meh/bleh/urgh).
I would recommend this book to everyone. It is short, quick, but full of zombie action, kick-ass characters, and much more.
