My Review: Anna, mother to two children, Alex and Jasper, with ex-husband Steve. After dropping off the kids for a week visitation with their dad, she wakes up to a zombie apocalypse. As she tries to get across town to be with her kids she runs into brothers Rob and Jack who help her. This would be my experience fall asleep with a migraine and wake up to a zombie apocalypse. The plot was strong and entertaining. The characters were interesting and relatable. I empathized with Anna and how she would do anything for her kids. I loved the camaraderie relationship between brothers Rob and Jack. What an enticing blend of zombies, action and adventure, thrills and relationships. I would definitely recommend this series. And I would go as far as calling it a cozy zombie apocalypse story because it was so cool. Author Joanne Nundy is now my go to zombie fix author. My favorite lines: "Twice dead Zombie" “You getting your knickers in a twist isn’t going to change what’s already happened or not happened.” “You absolute fucking legend, Anna… Batshit crazy, but unbelievable too,” Smart things to remember during a Zombie Apocalypse: Always sleep with your boots on Always sleep with your packs right beside you Super Glue can be used to glue cuts closed Always carry a boot knife in your boot R.I.C.E treatment method acronym (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) And finally, do not set a zombie on fire because it just becomes a flaming projectile zombie coming after you.
