Title: Blood Memory
Author: Perrin Briar
Genre: Post-apocalyptic, paranormal
This book is about a group of people out at sea who’ve survived a zombie apocalypse but realize that they are running out of food and need a new alternator for their boat. They see a ferry in the distance and decide to see if they can take the alternator from it knowing that there could still be living zombies on that ferry.
This was an okay story. It was easy to read and had some enjoyable action scenes. World building wasn’t so bad. It was basically around the sea and the boat but I got a good feel for it. What it lacked was pacing and character development. The story moved from one thing to another pretty fast and moved in steps which was unrealistic and predictable. Character development was minimal. Right up front we learn their names and age and a sentence or two of their characteristics but aside from that there was hardly any personality or depth. Dialogue was a bit cheesy and didn’t really add to the characters.
Overall, I’d say read this book if you want a taste of zombie apocalypse. It’s a short read and as mentioned earlier moves along at a pretty fast pace.
Note: This book was given to me to read and review by the author’s publicist.
