    " Great female hero...good stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobby newman | 2/2/2014

    " I loved it. I wish the author would write more zombie novels. The reader follows the towns sheriff trying to find her runaway sister who took her car. The setting is in a small quiet town until the dead start to wander around. In this epic journey, the zombies evolve from wanderers to hunters who hide and hunt in packs. I could not force myself to put the book down to do anything else. I have personally read it three times, and highly recommend it to all zombie lovers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Galadriel Thoman | 1/22/2014

    " The book that started my deep and abiding love of zombie books, Rise Again was terrific. I ate it up in a matter of hours (yes, the pun is intended). Gory, well told, incredibly well written, I have nothing negative to say...other than there needs to be a new book, and soon. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 1/13/2014

    " The ending made this long read worthy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Navem | 1/12/2014

    " Not very good. I didn't much care for the cast of characters. It was really slow going. There would be some action and it would be interesting for 2 pages and then there would be a bunch of boring and drawn out writing. Just didn't care for it. Also, the way the first wave of infection took place... The running and screaming and falling over? It was just comical. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Calvin | 1/7/2014

    " The cover sold me on this one. I almost didn't finish it though. The beginning was so slow. I was looking for action and didn't really care about the main character's distracting quest for her missing sister. It did come around and ended better than it began. Just need to power through the middle to get back to the good stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gregory | 1/3/2014

    " What a thrilling, adventurous story Tripp takes us on. The dark, mysterious, gory, and violent travels of Sheriff Danielle Adelman will have you at the edge of your seat. So strap yourself in because, this fast paced ride is one you will never forget! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Resa Chyz | 1/2/2014

    " I really liked this book, and found it a breath of fresh air in the zombie genre. He takes the time to develop his characters and builds up to the zombies, creating a satisfying, natural progression in the story. Although the book is fairly graphic, it does not sacrifice story for gore. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea Briggs | 12/27/2013

    " I think this is probably my new favorite book. It's captivating and funny. I couldn't put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 11/3/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candy | 10/21/2013

    " Wow! Wow! Wow!! I have not jumped on the zombie bandwagon like a lot of folks have. This is probably the second zombie book I have read. Completely blown away. Then ending of the book is a complete surprise and I'm still haunted by it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tabitha | 10/5/2013

    " This was an incredible book! A lot of action between the survivors and the undead, survivors and the mercenaries, and of course the mercenaries and the undead. I would recommend this book to any zombie lover! The ending was a twist! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mattie Richards | 8/24/2013

    " This book was a wonderful example thrill, violence and human arrogance / survival. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 8/22/2013

    " Definitely a good read, if your into the zombie genre. Suspenseful!! And nail biter at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eddie Puente | 6/21/2013

    " Took this book on vacation, tried starting it several times. 9 hr flight and I couldnt get it started. Once I got home its been non-stop. Will finish tonight, 4 starts thus far.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 6/20/2013

    " It was a pretty good book. The main character whined a lot and made choices that lacked any common sence. It covered more on how bad humans can be to each other. If you like other zombie books you will like this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pedro | 6/14/2013

    " A very refreshing take on the zombie genre. I hope the writer continues this saga as the heroin (Danny) is worth a continuing chapter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Guy | 3/29/2013

    " It took me a bit to get into this, but after the initial disaster/zombie rising the story got much better. Also, I usually don't dig open ended twisty endings, but this one was spot on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jimmy | 2/18/2013

    " An excellent zombie book. One of the better that I have read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 9/29/2012

    " The end of this book is pretty awesome, but it is otherwise pretty much your basic zombie novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gilliam | 7/16/2012

    " A survivalist road trip focusing upon a seemingly indestructible protagonist whose obsession with finding her missing younger sister repeatedly steers her and her fellow survivors into peril. "

    " Zombie stories are a dime a dozen and I've read a few that were pretty amazing. This one is just not good. I don't like the main character at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Simon Ings | 2/1/2012

    " This book saved itself. I found the first 200 pages good but formulaic. The last 160 were a great read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nickk | 1/27/2012

    " Haha this isnt something you can take seriously but it is entertaining "
