The first season of Sole Survivor has aired, a traumatized December Foss is trying desperately to escape her fifteen minutes of fame, and everyone thinks the drop bears are dead. Everyone that is except The Ark: a radical group of eco-terrorists with an axe to grind, and Joseph Steinberg, who still has plenty of them in reserve.

When the Ark release the drop bears from capt

C'mon admit it...even if you won't I will...

I always wished that the old TV series Tales from the Crypt had...well, a bit more bite to them. Snark, sex, gore...the list goes on. And yes, some of those Crypt tales were fairly ground breaking at the time.

But guess what- lucky for me, and you if you dig those sorts of things, Unnerving has published a series of books called Rewind or Die that is all of those things and more and I couldn't be happier about it. I'm currently working my way though all

** Edited as review is now live on Kendall Reviews! **

After recently devouring ‘Sole Survivor’ in anticipation of book two, I preordered the release. I was able to kindly get a digital review copy as well, so I decided not to wait and read after it was out!

As book two picks up after book one, everything I mention from here on out may be a potential spoiler. I apologise, but in this case, book one must be read to understand what happens in book two.

Welcome to Chompfest, Australia
Population: 100 bajillion things that want to eat your face.
Your chance of survival: Oh, you sweet summer child…is your will up to date???

Now, you don’t need to read the first book in order to read this one. It works on its own. HOWEVER – if the pandemic has you missing your annual new season of Survivor (and Jeff Probst’s dimple), grab the first book – you’ll definitely enjoy it.

If anything, though, this second book is even better than the first. This book is nuts

If you thought the first Sole Survivor was a wild ride, hang on for this one. New twists and bigger stakes in this wonderfully Aussie-as gore fest. You'll never see Brisbane, or koalas, the same way again. ...more

“The mutant koalas seen on the recently-aired Sole Survivor show weren’t naturally occurring like the show insisted, they’d been mutated; Frankensteined into existence.”*

The final girl from the first installment of Sole Survivor becomes the target of an animal rights activism group who blame her for harming the killer koala-like drop bears that slaughtered all the other contestants on the Sole Survivor reality show.

The book definitely delivers the promise of its tag line, “Bigger, badder, hungri

Bonza mate

Season two of Soul Survivor is bigger and bloodier with giant mutant drop bears taking on the city of Brisbane.
Hilarious, brutal and tense, Ashford knows how to deliver.
Bring on season 3!

Those pesky drop bears are back! And causing more mayhem.

I was delighted to get back into this story- i wanted to know what December did after the end of the first book, and how another season was going to pan out.

The short answer is - not very well. Some radical animal group make a big mistake and all of a sudden chaos ensues.

Another well written jaunt through the Australian scenery, more death scenes to keep your blood lust satisfied and the return of someone unexpected! I liked the experim

Bloody, fun horror novella

I received this novella as an Advanced Reading Copy from Net Galley. Because it is part two of a Survivor-type horror tale, I ordered the first part SOLE SURVIVOR from Amazon and started reading it. I thought there were some missing parts of the story but it took me a while to figure out I was reading part two with an incorrect cover and description.

Part two is an okay horror tale with killer koala bears in Australia. Bloody, gory - and this would be a fun Grade B horro
