When the dead no longer rest in peace, nobody rests in peace.
Johnny, an American rocker living in Germany, dreams of stardom. Just when it looks like it might happen, people start dying in droves. The problem is they're not staying dead. Johnny and his new friend Lena are sent scurrying to survive, but while Johnny can definitely rock a crowd, he’s no doomsday prepper. When they team up with a modern-day ax-wielding viking, things start looking up, but all is not as it seems.
A zombie plague is spreading across the planet faster than a joint at a rock concert and the madman who released the virus is still out there. To make matters worse, he’s not even close to being done yet.
As everyone scrambles to find a place that’s defensible against massive hordes of undead, one crucial question remains: Who is the bigger threat, the living or the undead?
*I received a copy of this book for an honest review*
Holy moley, what a ride! These characters, man. Almost nothing and no one is what they seem. I love Johnny. Naive as he might be, he's smart when it counts. The twists in the story aren't what you would normally expect, and they happen both in the telling of the tale and in personalities revealing themselves. Except one. "C" is an unapologetic ba$7ard, and I hope he dies a slow, horrible, PAINFUL death.
Also, I don't want to be a woman in this version of the apocalypse; this world is not the kindest to us!
My only real gripe is the lack of editing, but I think the copy I was given was an unfinished one, so I'm giving that a pass in the rating.
If you like zombies and don't shy away from rough stuff, harsh language, and things that could be triggering, I think you'd probably like this.
