I am a sucker for a zombie novel. There are times when I feel like I have read every zombis scenario imaginable. Then something something new comes along. My lovely friend Laurie from Barksbooksnonsence knows I have a weird fascination with the zombie genre, so when she got an extra copy of Rabid Heart she sent me the extra. I’m glad to say that she did. It was something a bit different that made me happy.
Synopsis: Zombies, a girl and road trip.
What I liked: I enjoyed Wagner’s writing style, fast paced with plenty of action. I am not a fan of zombie books that drag on. It was fun. I enjoyed the characters and the situations that they found themselves in. Brad was an interesting take on a zombie and that made me happy. So often once you have rad one zombie you read them all. I enjoyed that the heroine was a woman that made truly human mistakes. All too often in zombie stories the hero makes all the right decisions. Our heroine truly did not. She acted on emotion instead of a military thought process. I also really appreciated that the zombie virus had a name.
What I didn’t like: I would have liked more chomping of the people. But that is just me.
Star Rating: 4 Stars
My Thoughts: I enjoyed Rabid Heart quite a bit. It was just a fun book where there were cannibals and zombies. I love that the heroine was flawed. The characters were well written. You can tell that Wagner put a lot of thought into the story in how it unravels. I dislike romance in my stories but this one was kinda sweet in a weird and gross way. For those that have read the book you will know what I am talking about. Anyways, for anyone that appreciates a good zombie story defiantly check this one out.
