The Zombie Chronicles - Book 2
In fact, he even sleeps in a jeep through the majority of a massive zombie attack in which the smells-like-a-rotting-corpse-in-a-major-way big sis is passes out on top of him I don't know about anyone else but that would certainly wake me up. Somewhere along the way the pick up a childhood friend who just so happens to go ga-ga over the big sis whose flesh is beginning to rot off her body already.
Screams necrophilia to me. Throw in some really bad dialog and a handful of okay action scenes and you have the entirety of the book. Nick was flat and rather boring. Dean grated on my nerves and had very little character developement. Jackie and her cousin whose name seems to have slipped my mind Val was the most enjoyable of all the characters for me but even she fell short - her transformation was supposed to make us believe she was suffering and losing her mind but it wasn't all that believable.
Lucas creeped me out with the whole necro-thing. And lastly, Tahoe was dead weight - literally and figuratively - to the other characters throughout the whole story. Worth the time spent reading it? Nope Would I recommend it to anyone I know? The first a novella titled Apocolypse: Underwater City held so much promise.

The concept got me really excited and I was sadly let down by juvenile dialog, lack of character or story developement, and a rushed cliffhanger ending that left me questioning why I even bothered. This one wasn't any better. I feel as though I should give Ms. Peebles another chance the whole "3 strikes" thing but can't find the motivation to torture myself so.
I have four more Chrissy Peeble books in my queue that I will probably never touch for fear of yet another disappointment. Sorry, Ms. Peebles, but I outgrew your style of writing in the third grade You should try your hand at some children's novels aimed at a pre-teen crowd.
I'm sure they would get a big kick out of you. Feb 06, Michelle rated it did not like it Shelves: zombies , young-adult. I originally gave this two stars. Now in the light of day I've changed my mind and have sent it back to 1 star, ok.. Just because you can write a book, doesn't mean you should.
The zombie chronicles book 2
I haven't read anything else by this author, but zombie novels are not her forte. This sounded like it was written by a 12 year old. The dialogue between the characters was extremely juvenile even though the characters were in their early 20's with one being a cop and the other one in the army.
Seriously WTF??? I know you have to suspend belief especially when reading anything zombie related, but I have to draw a line somewhere and I drew that line with the human characters and their actions throughout the story. Let's show a few examples: The MC is Dean. Is it Walker or is the last name Walters? I found reference to both last names in the book. If you can't get your MC's last name straight throughout the book than you really have issues.
Dean does some pretty crazy shit sneaking his "new found sister" out of the hospital where she is awaiting execution for being a zombie. No way this could have went as smoothly as it did. Security is this place must be pretty damn lax. No wonder this Island was over-run in the end of the book. Dean's brother is Nick. Nick is 22 and has been in the army for only a year and is technically one of their best in cutting down zombies. If he's the best, than I'm pretty scared. He should know that shooting a gun only brings the zombies into the noise, but that seems to be his go to option throughout the book.
The girly girls - Claire and Jackie - Oh boy these two crack me up. Former wedding gown models before the break.
They survived by hiding out in a pet store basement when the break happened. They joined up with a group where the men protected the women and treated them like dolls and never taught them a damn thing on survival. On top of that they holed up in some kind of mansion where they spent the last 8 months playing dress up and walking around like The Kardashians.
The house get's over run and everyone dies except these two who manage to escape. They join up with the boys and within a few hours they somehow become sharpshooters and veteran zombie killers who don't need a man to protect them. However their ok with throwing themselves at the brothers like a bunch of sex starved hoochie mommas. The only positive about this book is that it was free.
Otherwise you might want to get the cliff notes on this and pass it up! Aug 12, Chloe Thurlow rated it it was amazing. The thing about zombies is they never die, except in inventive and convoluted ways, and they never go out of fashion. Since White Zombie, the indie-flick starring the unpredictable Bela Lugosi, movies, books, TV series and video games have been a staple cannibalistic? The Zombie Chronicles follows the codes of the genre and is written for young adults with a warning that there is some mild violence - though no more than what you might see in an The thing about zombies is they never die, except in inventive and convoluted ways, and they never go out of fashion.
The Zombie Chronicles follows the codes of the genre and is written for young adults with a warning that there is some mild violence - though no more than what you might see in an episode of Family Guy. Here we find caring, thoughtful and all-round good human being, Val, gorged by a zombie and the heroic Dean - the brother she didn't know she had - fighting the clock to get her the serum that will cure her before she fades into zombiehood. It all seems to be going well until the helicopter transporting Val to safety crash lands in the heart of zombieland and teenaged Dean must fight his way out against overwhelming odds.
Cue: the hero's journey, and we are with Dean every step of the way. Chrissy Peebles launches a series with this first book and those who pick it up are sure to look out for the next one. Sep 30, Simon Okill rated it it was amazing Shelves: urban-fantasy , thriller , horror , action , zombie.

Aug 19, Sheryl Seal rated it it was amazing. What an action packed thrilling read. Hooked from page one, I couldn't put the book down. There was so much going on and just like the characters I couldn't stop, I had to keep going. There is plenty of awe and shock value, gruesome details, spine tingling descriptions and twist and turns along the way.
Dean and Nick learn they have a sister, Val and that she has been bitten and needs the cure, problem one, she can't have the cure until she changes The Zombie Chronicles by Chrissy Peebles, Wow! Dean and Nick learn they have a sister, Val and that she has been bitten and needs the cure, problem one, she can't have the cure until she changes into a zombie.
Traveling with her and a few others they pick up along the way, they head for the Island where their parents are and the high walls of safety from the zombies. With plenty of well developed characters and scenes this book drew me in from page one and held my attention. At the end I knew I had to have book 2.
A great zombie read and I can't wait to read more Chrissy Peebles novels. Mar 27, Robin Morse rated it liked it Shelves: zombie-lit. I picked up this book cheaply for my Kindle through Amazon and didn't really know what to expect from it. As far as zombie books go, this one is good. I liked it but didn't think it was amazing.
I have recently read World War Z so the bar was high.
The story of two brothers and a sister racing back to a secure area with a possible cure for the virus. The sister is very sick and very much in need of the medicine before she turns. A man they meet along the way steals the vials of medicine knowing I picked up this book cheaply for my Kindle through Amazon and didn't really know what to expect from it. A man they meet along the way steals the vials of medicine knowing if he brings the vials back to civilization he will be a hero. The plot was interesting, you become emotionally invested in some of the characters, others not so much.
I will definitely be reading the next in the series to see how it plays out. Mar 18, Amy Vicary rated it it was ok. Written quite poorly. Lack of character and story depth.
