I was given a e-copy in exchange for my honest review.

Warning: Adult Read
This installment is Jade's version of the events that took place the day the Zombie Apocalypse stared.

Jade's and Kylee's lives changed more than they every would have thought by going on tour. Nothing will change your life more than meeting your first Zombie wile on a plane, right? Jade is fast into action, protecting herself and the others on the plane. I guess being the mother of 5, you kind of have to be prepared for

LOVE LOVE this novella

Firstly I need to say a huge thank you to author Jennifer Malone Wright for the chance to read this amazing read!!! OUAZA - Jade. I received this copy for my enjoyment, and it’s only fair that I in turn take the opportunity to give my fair and unbiased opinion in a review. To follow is my opinion, and not that of any other person.

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I started to read OUAZA - Jade, but I knew

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
So be honest it was a lot harder to write a review for this book because I read it second lol. I already knew what was going to happen. The books are the same but told from different perspectives.i still friggin laughed my ass of at all the funny parts. But this one also showed parts that we didn't get to see in Kylee. One huge part in particular. I did really enjoy how you could pick up either book and read in whatever o

Fabulous job on bringing your personalities into this story!!! And...if we ever feel the need to battle the zombies I'm calling Jenn & just hoping that Jade is available for some zombie@$$kicking!!! ;*} Just sayin'!

Ok, so I was HONORED to receive this book from the author for an honest review. I read Kylee's POV first and LOVED it. This was equally AWESOME. They had me laughing at some of the same points in their stories but then Jade had other LOL moments. I cant wait to read more about their journey to find their families. The whole zombie thing actually happening one day scares me but this made for some good reading. You have to roll with the punches and Jade and Kylee are doing just that. I highly reco ...more

10+*s. I won a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

This is a wickedly hilarious and awesome look at Jade's point of view. Of course, I have to say that this character reminds me a lot of the author and what I can only assume that she would do in a Zombie Apocalypse. It's full of excitement, adventure, two authors and a little girl. My favorite part of the book is the code Oceans or Red and of course I know what they are talking about too as soon as I read it.

I'm being drawn to novellas on-set ADHD or just the fact that I have spent too much time an dmoney on full lehgth books I haven't enjoyed? Either way, I really enjoyed this novella. I sugest reading the "about the authors" first because then you can see why the story is set up as it is, and further appreciate where "Jade" is coming from.

I think this is a wonderful start to what is a planned series, and I look forward to reading the other books the authors have planned.
So last night's entertainment consisted of this first episode of "Once Upon A Zombie Apocalypse," penned by two young female authors who are writing about two young female authors stuck in a zombie outbreak, on an airplane of all places. The story is written twice, by each of the authors from a different character's POV. Thankfully, the story I selected first was the MacGuyver version of the pair - the one that could shot, think straight, and still ask questions. Later, I suppose, I will need to ...more

This and Once Upon A Zombie Apocalypse - Kylee are a great start to a promising zombie survival serial. The serials are written alternately by Jennifer Malone Wright and K.B. Miller apart from Kylee's first one which was written by both.

"K.B. Miller and Jennifer Malone Wright areboth authors of the paranormal and urban genres. Once Upon A Zombie Apocalypse came about after many discussions on how they would survive the zombie apocalypse. Their survival strategies were sodifferent from each other

This novella is a real hoot! It was laugh out loud, roll in the isles funny, and downright scary at times for those of up with the "what if" mentality regarding a zombie apocalypse. The world building is fantastic and you have to love the characters, who frankly I wish were my besties. It is a very short read and I really wish there was more, but it is my understanding the series will continue on with more installments to come. It should be mentioned that there are two installments of this same ...more

I received this book in exchange for a honest review.

I just love the cover on this book! I love the contrast and the light-hearted nature of the look compared to the serious title. It suggests lots of humor.

I love these two Zombie Novellas and the authors Kym Miller and Jenn Wright. Their writing is so funny and fabulous! Both the Novellas are funny and you get to experience it first through Kylee

I just didn't like this book at all. There was nothing wrong with the writing style or the way the story was put together so I'm not attaching blame to the author for my low mark. I just couldn't stand the two MCs and when that happens, I struggle to get into the story.

Basically, Jade annoyed me a bit but at least she seemed capable of keeping her head and dealing with the situation. But Kylee drove me round the bend with her airhead behaviour and non operating brain. Yes of course I get that no

Well this was the first Zombie book I have read in quite a few years. And all thou there was, as the synopsis says, graphic language, and violence*** yea there was. But what can you expect it is about ZOMBIE'S! Right?

Seriously, Author Jennifer Malone Wright has an whack out of this world, wonderful way with her writing that keeps you:

I like the term "the goners" for the Zombies. There were some funny moments in this zombie apocalypse. I felt connected to the characters and there was definitely a lot of action for a short story. I will be moving onto Kylee's side, but I would read the next part of it after reading this.
Gory, graphic and great! Too bad this is so short but it really was a great intro into the world and characters.

Jennifer Malone Wright has always been one of my favorite authors. This short story was great. I can't wait to read the one from Kylee's point of view.

Humorous, detail oriented, and a highly loveable cast of characters. Zombies have never been this funny. Off to read Kylee's telling of the story now. :)

Jade Kylee and Cheri on a plane going home and what do you know? A zombie Apocalypse breaks out. The pilot is being eaten but manages to land plane safely. Cheri's father is bitten and changes. So Kylee and Jade are left with the care of a young girl. All they want is to get home to their families. Action and comedy in this awesome story. Great job Miss Wright. Will definitely recommend to friends and fellow readers.

Loved it

This was funny and lots of fun. It would have been a five star except last time I looked Louisville, Kentucky was on the Ohio River, not the Mississippi. (Big mistake.) That's a little further west. But you were right about the weather in Kentucky. It sucks.

Not sure if...

...this was supposed to be funny but there were parts of this excerpt that made me laugh (although that might just be my sense of humor) - and a story that just wets your appetite for more.

Zombies on A Plane

Great balance of humor, action, and gore. Slaying zombies have never seemed so much fun. Can't wait to read Kylee and Jade's next adventure.

Cool story!

This looks to be a somewhat different zombie story. A little bit scary that this outbreak happened on a plane. I’m sure I’ll read the rest soon!

Quick read

Quick good read. Fast paced, very action packed. Best part was when.... Maybe I shouldn't say. Kindle read. Freebie, but worth buying.

Since this one is just slightly different (MC is Jade instead of Kylee), I will copy most of my review from Kylee's review here and edit it at some places, the new parts are in bold.

As I also said with my review for Kylee's POV book I did think the graphic language warning and violence warning was a bit overkill. I have seen quite a bit more cussing and violence in some YA novels. But oh well. :P

I definitely loved that this one took place mostly in a plane. Yes, I have read quite a few zombie bo

Don't ask me why I picked up this book. Although I've read zombie books before it is not my favorite genre. I think I snagged it because it is short - only 50 pages according to Amazon - and I was looking for a quick read. Plus I saw that the main characters were two authors who had been attending an author conference when the zombies appeared. Kind of intriguing, don't you think? At least from an author's view.

What I like about this series is the concept. The series is written by two authors wh

Imagine sitting on a plane waiting to go home from a writer's conference when you discover that the people on board are becoming infected with a zombie like contagion including the pilot. Well, poor Jade and her best friend, Kylee are in this very predicament and "Once Upon A Zombie Apocalypse" is the first installment of their story.

Prior to the plane's departure, the flight attendant requested that someone in first class was a fan of theirs and wanted to meet them. So, Kylee and Jade go to fir

I am not a fan of zombie books, but this was surely a treat. With a nice blend of kick ass zombie moments, funny adult humor, and real life anguish. Each character has their own traits that are a perfect duo that balance each other out on their venture back home to their families.

*Now I read both Jade and Kylee's stories, and personally I feel that there was no real need for both. There were only slight changes in each story that I feel could have all been placed in the
