This is not a genre I would usually choose, but wow! it had me hooked from the start. Fast paced, bloody, and gory, it tells the story of a zombie apocalypse, coinciding with a human virus which has hospitals overflowing, at the same time as pet dogs are becoming the undead. The plot develops rapidly with lots of twists and turns along the way, to the point where you are never sure where it's going to take you next - just when you thought it was safe to read another chapter... The Author writes with a unique style, her graphic attention to setting the scene making the characters jump out of the page, and have you squirming in your seat, as the blood spurts and the rancid flesh hangs in shreds. This book will have you riveted until the very end! Ellie Douglas is the Mistress of Horror! I loved this book - escapism at its absolute best!
