Review: Zombie Love: The Outbreak

Title: Zombie Love: The Outbreak
Author: Erik J. Sobolik
Published: August 6th 2011 by Jericho Publishing

Book Description:

Zombie Love is the story of a widespread virus, in a way that has never been done before. As people lose loved ones, some decide that sometimes the people you love are the only ones worth fighting for. As factions form, and the world crumbles, people must choose sides. Help or destroy.

When a virus is developed as the ultimate cure all by reversing death itself, the world is plunged into a crisis of faith, dedication, and love.

In book one we meet Summer Strom, a normal high school teenager who is thrown cruelly into a set of circumstances that nobody should have to deal with. She has to fight back against everybody she knows as she battles for the only thing worth fighting for. Love.

My Thoughts:

How far will you go to protect the person you love?

       During the prologue, we find out that Sam has somehow found a way to bring back the dead. But things got out of control, and what he thought would be a miracle turned out to be a nightmare. And this is where the zombies come in.
            The story revolves around our main protagonists, Summer and Daniel. Both of them are neighbors, but because of the conflicts between their parents, they didn’t really hang out. At all. But this didn’t stop them from falling in-love with each other. One night, Summer was attacked by a stranger and Daniel comes to her aid, and then they share a wonderful kiss. Well, it would’ve been wonderful for me, except for the fact that they’re kissing near a corpse, or rather a zombie. You know what happens next. Daniel got bitten. Now Summer is torn between saving Daniel or giving him up.
            At first I thought that this will be like any other typical zombie novel where the virus breaks out, people are dying and brought back to life as flesh-eating monsters, and then the protagonists will have to find a way to save themselves from them. But I was wrong! The concept is new to me since the heroine loved a zombie—the type that you see on the dawn of the dead or resident evil. Yes. I meant the flesh eating ones.
            Zombie Love is a fast read, but I think that it’s too short. There were great characters that would’ve been more interesting if developed more. Overall, we enjoyed reading this book, and we look forward to how Summer and Daniel’s relationship will progress, and how the virus will be contained.

We give this book 3.5 whales.
