While Layla Petrovich returns home to rural Hamletville after a desperate call from her psychic grandmother, she never could have anticipated the horror of what Grandma Petrovich has foreseen. The residents of Hamletville will need Layla's cool head, fast blade and itchy trigger finger to survive the undead apocalypse that's upon them. But even that may not be enough. With mankind silenced, it soon becomes apparent that we were never alone. As the beings living on the fringe seek power, Layla must find a way to protect the ones she loves or all humanity may be lost.
It's all fun and games until someone ends up undead!
I had purchased a copy of the ebook last year, so I figured it was time for another audible/ebook comparison.
Narration-wise, I liked Kristin James. I think she did a good job with the accents and I was able to easily dissern between the voiced characteres. I do believe she helped, making it easy to stay interested.
As for the story itself, a zombie apacolypse mixed with folklore was pretty awesome. Definately nothing like I'd ever read (and heard, in this case) before. I'm a big fan of mythology and folklore, so it was quite welcome.
About halfway in, another element was added. I was put off for maybe a moment before I let it sink in and was more like, "Why the hell not?"
There was a bit of a love triangle aspect in this story. One character in specific, his complete lack of emotions toward an important situation is alarming.
Having not one, but two major threats made this basically two stories wrapped up in one. It definately kept the suspense going.
