Gurley Is Laying Down The Law [Book Review]

Jake’s Law is another great zombie novel by horror author JE Gurley, who also wrote Ice Station Zombie and the Judgment Day series. I am a fan of Gurley’s Judgment Day Trilogy, so I was looking forward to reading Jake’s Law – the book description doesn’t do it justice. It was non-stop action mixed with the right amount of drama. The focus is more on the personal war between Jake, former law enforcement officer, and Levi, an escaped convict, rather than the zombies, but the undead do have a few key scenes.

The story begins with Levi’s POV, and rotates between the POVs of Jake and two other survivors, Reed and Jessica. Random events bring them together, but revenge motivates them all. Levi wants to rule over the other survivors, but Jake has already laid down the new law of the land, so, while the two men try to kill each other, Reed and Jessica find themselves unwilling pawns caught in the crossfire.

What really stands out about Jake is that he is a Type 2 diabetic. I thought Gurley did a fairly accurate job portraying Jake’s medical concerns. I think fans will also appreciate a character that is less than perfect.

I think this is a stand-alone story, but Gurley left a small opening for a new series. In any case, this is a treat for zombiephiles.
