Story: Zombies eat brains: wrong. Zombies are mindless and unthinking: nope. Zombies are rotting bags of flesh: not necessarily. Zombies kill humans: never… well, there is that one exception. Grayson Patch hasn’t been human since he was seventeen years old… and that was nineteen years ago. When he rose from the dead that night, a Zombie, he had no memory of his former life, a craving for raw flesh, and only one purpose: to find a cure. He wishes only to be human again and he is promised that it is possible. But first he must find the human that can help him before he begins to decompose… and trade her life for his. As he learns more about her, he just doesn’t know if he can do it. Can he? When the cost of being human again is to become a monster? Cori Abbot isn’t scared of Grayson. Not when there are a million other things for her to worry about. Like being the new girl in a school that is a fraction the size of her old one. Or making new friends while battling her antisocial tendencies. And then there’s the big one: dealing with the recent and sudden death of her father. Yeah, there are bigger problems than the strange, withdrawn, and consistently angry guy who seems to hate her for no apparent reason. Imagine how surprised she is to realize that the ever hostile Grayson might actually be the one who understands her the best.
Our rating: 5 out of 5 secrete zombie stars
Review: There’s nothing better than when an author takes an idea and thinks outside the box when developing it into a story. Such is the case with Fatal. It’s not your normal zombie “eats” brains kind of story. If you think it’s something like Warm Bodies you’re wrong again. Well kind of. T.A Brock does an incredible job bringing us into this world where zombie do exist and all they want to do is survive without eating brains and find their savers. Behind the zombie walls is this beautiful love story between Grayson ( the frustrated zombie boy) and Cori (the timid hurting girl). These two character build a relationship slowly, which makes it very believable even if you are reading a zombie book. They don’t immediately fall in love, in fact it takes a lot of work and trust. They both have to battle many inner demons. Now don’t just think this is a book about romance, it also has lots of action that will have you turning the pages. Brock also does a great job with the secondary characters. Just like in life you get fooled by some of the characters you think you should trust and some you don’t trust. Now we do have to tell you at first you might feel a little lost and wonder why things are happening, but the authors does a wonderful job tying all the loose strings together with a shocking ending. You will close the book wanting more. This book is a thrilling ride you won’t want to get off. We really hope the next one is coming out soon.
So grab a glass of water and read Fatal.
