Book Review - Days of Love and Blood

Book Review

Bookshelves: Post-Apocalyptic, Zombies, Science Fiction, Romance

Rating: 4 of 5 stars (It was good)

Recommended Age: Adult

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. 

I must admit I was a little turned off by the cover. But the draw? "A post-apocalyptic zombie book for women. Without the zombies."
It had me. Curiosity filled me. I'm not usually a fan of zombie books so I wasn't expecting too much but I was pleasantly surprised. The writing was smooth and the plot kept me intrigued. As a wife and mother I connected with Carson, I understood her feelings and her willingness to do anything to protect her child. Especially after witnessing her husbands murder. I like how each chapter starts out as a reminiscing of her life before the virus. Her life with Ritchie. It really gives depth to her character. The book starts off quick. I thought the whole thing would be full of just crazy zombie decapitation but it wasn't. (Don't worry, There is plenty thanks to our heroines fierce katana skills) But I really liked how they found a way to build their own little town and means for survival and how they formed new bonds and relationships. There was a lead, perhaps a possible sequel? It was a fast paced enjoyable read and I will definitely keep an eye on this author in the future. There is language, sometimes very strong, sex, rape and murder.

Happy Reading!
