I was lucky enough to have the author notice one of his books was on my Goodreads To-Read shelf, as he offered me the first 3 books in his PLAGUED series in exchange for my honest review. I can assure you, this was no hardship on my part!
PLAGUED is a very different approach to the zombie phenom, introducing "half-breeds", a zombie-human who belongs in neither world, much like wolf hybrids who aren't dogs and aren't wolves and are therefore much confused about who they are. In this book, Tom has joined his brother in the search for his sister, visiting zombie slave camps in hopes of finding evidence of her whereabouts. While looking for the archives at Biter's Hill, he encounters his first half-breed and he soon suspects that she knows where his sister must be.
Luckily for readers, Biter's Hill loses control of its resident zombie population and the dookie quickly hits the fan. Oh yeah, I'm ready to dig into Book 2.
