So far fucked up than vs. then once and used the word 'hella.' I was expecting it to be worse... Low expectations for the win.

Must finish. Must finish. Must finish... but oh god the romance makes me want to read less and less of it. Plus the motivation for the romance coming together is shoddy at best.

"I made it all the way here, and you're gonna try to look into it? I've gone all the way across the country, rescued a lion, escaped a cult, killed marauders, and fought a dozen zombies with my bare fricking hands! And you're gonna look into it?"

Wow, the author spelled out the ridiculousness of all this and still didn't think to backtrack and edit.

As Ernest Hemingway said, first drafts are shit. This reads like a first draft.

"Harlow couldn't aim at all, so I positioned myself directly in front of her." lol, a thirteen year old with a gun can't aim so you stand in front of her when the zombie's come. Dude, take the gun away from her.

Someone got attacked by a zombie and said she wasn't bitten. The leader said they'd check everyone for bites when they get back.

Book: This is a nice place for relationship defining drama.
Lucy: But what about checking for those zombie bites?
Book: Please, bitch, look at the dramaz and forget the bites.
Lucy: It's a zombie book -- I cannot forget the bite.
Book: Damnit. Well, try to be surprised.

The main character is so vague. I've never read a story written from the POV of a character so hollowed out. Even Bella Swan, who was open enough for most girls to insert themselves, had a more distinct personality.

When you introduce a random lion who becomes your main character's pet remember that you have probably used up your quotient of ridiculous for the story -- preferably before you introduce a rockstar traveling companion.

Liz She's self-published isn't she? I find very few self-published authors can effectively edit their own work. Sad.

Lucy She is self-published. I thought this book under went an editing process though as part of her new contract. It's free this week for kindle on amazon btw, if you want it.
