Confessions of the Very First Zombie Slayer (That I Know Of) by F.J.R. Titchenell
RELEASED: April 4, 2017
GENRE: YA, FANTASY, HORROR
LENGTH: 310 pages
FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK
The world is Cassie Fremont’s playground. Her face is on the cover of every newspaper. She has no homework, no curfew, and no credit limit, and she spends her days traveling the country with her friends, including a boy who would do the chicken dance with death to make her smile. Life is just about perfect—except that those newspaper headlines are about her bludgeoning her crush to death with a paintball gun, she has to fight ravenous walking corpses every time she steps outside, and one of her friends is still missing, trapped somewhere in the distant, practically impassable wreckage of Manhattan. Still, Cassie’s an optimist, more prone to hysterical laughter than hysterical tears, and she’d rather fight a corpse than be one. She’ll never leave a friend stranded when she can simply take her road trip to impossible new places, even if getting there means admitting to that boy that she might love him as more than her personal jester. Skillfully blending effective horror with unexpected humor, this diary-style novel is a fast-paced and heartwarming read.
FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
Confessions of The Very First Zombie Slayer is an enjoyable zombirific read (I made that word up)
Cassie is one of the first people to kill a zombie (that she knows of). And she’s writing about it, so others know her story. I liked that it was written in Cassie’s perspective, as a journal. I’m a zombie lover. Anyone who knows me knows this. So when this came around. I took a chance on it. I mean the title and the awesome cover, why not?
Titchenell really took the world of Zombies and made a story of her very own. It had all the normal, zombies and evil humans. It was action packed and zombie filled. Unfortunately, I didn’t connect with Cassie on an emotional level. But it was different and I highly enjoyed it.
Overall, I give this Four Boundless Stars.
