Zombie apocalypse stories aren't really about the zombies. Sure there's lots of gore with the brain/flesh eating but after all that we want to read about the survivors. How will they live in a world where you have to worry about being chomped by close friends and relatives? In this book we follow a group of teenagers as they try to navigate through this strange and dangerous world where sometimes the living are more dangerous than the zombies. Devil's Wake is the first in a series and does a fine job introducing us to the main characters and fleshing them out (no pun intended). The zombies are quite interesting as they appear to be evolving into something a little more creepy than just plain stumbling undead hordes.

While the pace was a little slow in parts overall I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading the next in the series.

**full disclosure: I won a copy of the book from a Facebook contest and was asked to write a review but the opinions expressed are purely my own.
