I enjoy my zombies and I keep hoping for a mix of zombies and wild west that hits the nail on the head. The beginning started out well enough – I particularly love the interactions with the Wylde family. The twins are amusing and have a connection that we hear a hint of but never truly get to explore. Actually all of the Wyldes have a little something extra and while Joseph’s is mentioned a bit, it still seemed like his whole story wasn’t being told..

It felt as if one story was written – the zombie portion – and then the storm and the flooding problem were written later as an after thought and to give the town the Wyldes lived in some depth. It wasn’t seamless which left a lot of disconnect for me.

There was also a lot that happened behind the scenes that the reader didn’t get to see, but was talked about afterwards. I would have liked to see more of the zombie rising than simply be told about it.
