The beginning is always the best place to start when reflecting on what has been.
Thinking back on it, my life had been perfect.
Middle class girl in high school with a happy home life.
My life had been full of nothing but promise.
Life was good.
Everything was great.
And then my whole world went to shit. In one day.
The disease came first.
Then the dead.
It was a fight for my life every single day from the start. But I was different from all the rest.
I had heard my mother’s screams while watching my sister become one with the undead. All the while feeling like there was absolutely nothing I could do to help them.
It killed me.
What’s more, it changed me.
I did everything I possibly could to survive on my own.
And then I learned how to survive with others.
By being their Queen.
Their Zombie Queen.
And by being the most feared woman they ever came in contact with.
This is a WhyChoose novel full of zombies, a sword wielding badass chick, and an army of dudes.
Recommended age 17+ due to content and language.
I received a copy of this book from the authors for an honest review.
I have to start by saying I don’t read many zombie books but Brandy and Mary wrote it so I could not pass it up. Well and my BFF said I had to read it because it was amazing. Brandy and Mary did a great job and I enjoyed it so much. Em and her guys were amazing. Em is a kickass zombie slayer. She knows how to weld those swards of hers. She even has a thing or two to say to all these guys that end up invading her area. She does not need these men in her way or her space but they are persistent and refuse to let her do this on her own.
The Guys are great themselves. Each so different but get along like brothers well except Sam they all take a bit to warm up to him and trust him. Kemp what can I say he is such a roading man but when its just him and Em man do they steam things up even if its not in the shower. I like all the guys not sure I could choose just one.
If an apocalypse were to ever hit, I want to be with Em no way I could survive on my own. I love how Em could hold her ground no matter who it was she was up against. She was strong enough to make it through seeing what happened to her mother, sister and friend. When the swards needed to come out she never thought twice about it. The trust and loyalty Em and these guys have for one another was incredible.
This was fast pace, heart stopping, and packed with a ton of action. I found my heart racing and in a state of panic so many times during this book. I rally hope this story continues Mary and Brandy have me hooked on Em and her guys. I NEED more of Em and her guys.
A few of my favorite:
Note to self: that man has the potential to be more dangerous than the fuckfaces.
I hadn’t wanted anything for myself outside of simply surviving in a very long time. Now it wasn’t so much about wanting to stay here, per say, but wanting to stay with them. Each and every single one of them.
Both Kemp and Em are crazy enough to stab them through the heart first and not bother to ask questions later.
