When There’s No More Room In Hell by Luke Duffy is a great addition to the zombie genre, despite editing issues. Unlike many undead novels, this new series is written from the POV of folks from the UK, so it’s pretty exciting to read how survivors make it through a zombie outbreak in a country where guns aren’t readily available like they are in the States.
The bad: sloppy editing…mainly issues with random POV switches, and random location switches. I think it’s going to be a deal-breaker for some readers, which would be a real shame. I strongly urge readers to make an effort to finish reading this book…I think you will find the ending very rewarding (even though there is a cliff-hanger, but the sequel is already available)!
Steve and Marcus are two brothers in two different countries when a flu virus ravages the world’s population. Steve tries to hold up in his apartment with his daughter, until it becomes apparent that there is more to this virus than just a fatal illness, and he tries to survive with others (including his brother’s family) at a safari park. Marcus, a marine now working with a private security team, realizes that he will have to journey through several hostile countries to get back to his family.
At first, I was more interested in the security team’s situation, but when the two storylines begin to merge together, I was sitting on the edge of my seat, racing through pages, wondering if the brothers would ever manage to be reunited.
Somehow Luke Duffy managed to take the typical zombie survival story and turn it into an original action-packed family drama overflowing with all kinds of horror – not just the undead threat.
Book 2 of this series is available in both Kindle and paperback formats.
