(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I felt this book did quite a good job of pulling me into the storyline more or less straight away. I liked the relationship between the characters and there were a couple of nice flashback scenes that didn’t tear me completely out of the story.
Zombies in themselves aren’t a unique concept, but I felt that their origin was quite a unique one. The use of psychic abilities involved with the zombies was quite an interesting concept, too.
I was a bit disappointed that there didn’t seem to be any of the main characters’ parallel selves in the different worlds. The only person they recognised from their world was someone I hadn’t actually met properly in the first place.
It was good to see that the characters did get hurt. I found myself caring about what happened to them and reading avidly to see what would happen next.
Billy was probably one of my favourite characters. Some of the comments he came out with really made me smile, even at some of the darker times during the book. The author did a good job of describing the zombies. I found myself cringing every time they appeared.
The other characters were fairly interesting as well, but I think the switching between POVs took away a lot of the twists/mystery that could have been involved.
I would definitely be interested in reading the next book/s in this series in the future. This was a fairly unique twist on the zombie genre with characters I liked and cared about.
