it was amazing

Author Donna Burgess sure gives readers a entertaining, action packed and chilling read with Solstice and as we follow several small groups through this modern day apocalypse, we are given no explanation to why or what caused this zombie (or Rager's) apocalypse, other than a mysterious flash. Which I loved.

As for the book characters, I found that many were believable in both their thinking and actions. I even found myself really rooting for some of the book characters, while other book characters, I just wished they met a rager sooner, rather then later. Also at the start of the book we do have a few different POV to follow, which at times was confusing and also frustrating, because just as one group's story was hanging on a cliff-hanger the POV changed to another group. The good news is that as we get further into the book, it dwindles down to one POV.

Now about these zombies or as the author calls them 'Ragers'. They are not your typical 'I want to eat you', slow moving in both mind and body. No way, these rager's minds work just like humans, they can think and talk, only difference is that they now have a unending hunger for flesh, and things that kill humans don't kill them. ( well unless its a shot to the head.) Which makes this book more enjoyable, than I thought it would be.

I'm hoping author Donna Burgess, makes this into a series or even just writes a 2nd book. I for sure would not hesitate in buying it. So in the end, I am happily giving 'Solstice: A Novel of the Zombie Apocalypse' a 5 star review and think my reader's should check this book out as soon as they can. Its a fantastic read and well worth your time.
