I had this book recomended to me by a girl who ADORES all things paranormal, and a die hard twi-hard. To be fair, I'm the one who got her hooked on it, even though I've since gotten into other things. But without the mention of vampires here, and the fact the the GIRL was the one actually doing the work here was cool. And zombies. Awesome.

This woman has some major purple prose. Which is fine, once in a while, but it's overused here. Everything is overly described and drawn out. It's face paced, yes, but so long, she goes over the same details, and the purple prose? She uses fake words, twisted to sound more sophisticated, around other terms that are perfectly modern. it's a mish-mash.

She harps main points. "Did they hear the gunshots?" Every. Page. It gets irksome. Rather.

And the CUSSING. My GOSH. Seems like that's all Graves does. Cuss. Seriously. One scene, suddenly someone out of the blue comes up, and we don't know who he is.

He uses the Lord's name in vain twice, and I know!~ "Oh! That's Graves."

Oi. It has such potential, but it's failing me.
