I've seen a few zombie films and I enjoy The Walking Dead TV series, but I never considered myself a "zombie fan." At least I wasn't, until I read Tayler Wright's The Outbreak.

Don't expect any social commentary or overly-sentimental end-of-the-world romance. What you get is a wall-to-wall slaughterfest. Every page is practically soaked in blood and brains. The human element is there, of course, though I wish it had been a bit more prominent. Lily Hamilton, the lead character, launches into Rambo

I have to admit I was a bit leery of this book upon receiving it. I was curious as to how the story of a zombie apocalypse could be told in under 200 pages. However, once I began Tayler Wright's, The Outbreak, I could not stop. I was intrigued by the simplicity and ease of Wright's writing and the page turning way she went into this story. By skipping all of the usual build up, Wright jumped right into the action.
My only criticism would be the lack of a background story for some of the main cha

This book started off good enough, noticed a few incorrect use of words or misspellings, but nothing crazy. Characters were easy enough to like, but not well developed. I guess, what I can say is, nothing impressed me. No real big turn in events, or obstacle...Everything came easy (someone mentioned like everyone was a perfect shot, that's a good example) and then when something big is revealed the book just ends. I think it's a good start to a novel, but just that a start, it's not a whole ...more

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This was a nice and quick read and I completed it in a few hours. As far as the zombie genre goes it ticks all the right boxes and was set up well and the characters were interesting. The author did put her own twist on the story and this helps separate it from other zombie books I have read and made it bit different to the run of the mill zombie apocalypse tale. Overall this is an enjoyable book and is worth a read if you are ...more

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.I found myself immersed in the story from the first page.The story centers around a strong young woman trying to survive in a world overrun by zombies.I really enjoyed this book until the last chapter.The ending seemed underdeveloped and left me feeling i needed more resolution.Overall I enjoyed the book and I look forward to reading more by this author.

This is the author's first book and it was really good.

Lily Hamilton is in a zombie apocalypse. This book went nearly straight into the action with hardly any build up which is refreshing also it's a shorter book and a nice page turner leaving you wanting more. Then are a few characters in their but mainly Lily is the only character for a few. I'm glad Macy was there and the twist at the end was awesome.

A zombie tale with a twist, this one will stick with me for a while. The characters were easy to like and follow. The pace of the book was good. I even found myself re-reading parts of it because I was surprised by the ending. Not many books can surprise me so big kudos to the author on that.
All in all, I will look forward to reading more by this author. There is the promise of really good things to come here and I can't wait.

Perfect zombie apocalypse book for anyone aged 15 years or older. Not too much gore or foul language. All of the MAIN characters were easy enough to like, they just seemed to have it a bit too easy, all were expert marksmen. The story keeps a steady pace, not really any slow spots, has a unique and unexpected twist in the end. This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
