Review ~ Blackout by Katherine Wynter ~ Horror
Author: Kathrine Wynter
Genre: Horror, zombies
Rating: 5 bats
So, have to say, though I love zombie movies I find most zombie novels and novellas leave a lot to be desired. Hence, I’m fairly picky about zombie reads.
Blackout is a fantastic story that annihilates the genre barriers of zombie fiction and takes the reader on a fast-paced adventure. Kathrine Wynter keeps her pacing taut and filled with action, drama and suspense. Her world building is stellar and strong, easily holding the reader in her world with precise and lovely details.
Loved the characters! Katherine does an excellent job of letting the reader in on the private life of the characters and kept me involved and caring for them every step of the way.
Excellent story! Even if you’re not overly fond of most zombie fiction, give this story a whirl – you won’t regret it!
Here’s the blurb:
Zombies walk among us. Look like us. Talk like us.
When Chicago scientist Bryan Southworth found the secret to eternal life through nanocell technology, he didn’t know it’d come with a cost: death. The process of Reanimation requires physical death for bio-synthetic cellular replication to take hold, but maintaining eternal life depends on timely injections of fresh cells to replace those used. Should a patient’s supply run too low, the computer chip installed at the base of the neck deactivates consciousness, freeing up the body to seek out new cells any way necessary.
Mikal Edmonds is your average zombie – or Reanimated Citizen as they prefer to be called – on his first date in over a decade when an attack by the religious terrorist group calling themselves the Naturalists changes everything. Now the target of a zealot’s fervor, Mikal’s willpower is tested as he confronts his past and tries to avoid the one thing he fears above all else: a blackout.
