Zombies on Mars, how cool is that! This book is a great novella. I loved the writing style and the characters were fantastic.

It follows a group of teenagers in a habitat on Mars and its called hobbitan as the tunnels are curved. Normally when trying to escape zombies you can just run down the road to the nearest mall,lol. But in this you cannot. You cannot breath on the outside so it makes it more fun.

I'd recommend this if you like your zombie fiction but with a bit of a difference. Good fun!
