Review: Days of Love and Blood by R.S. Carter

Days of Love and Blood

A post-apocalyptic zombie book for women.

Without the zombies.

Worse than zombies.

The Demon Virus spreads worldwide in a matter of days leaving nothing but a few uninfected people in its path along with disease-riddled survivors who possess homicidal tendencies.

Carson drives across the country, back to her parents’ farm, with her son Ronan to begin a new life in a post-apocalyptic world. There she discovers more uninfected people like herself and attempts to build new relationships after the devastating loss of her husband.

Two men distract Carson from her grief, each possessing different characteristics that she found, loved and needed in her husband. Cooper has a bad attitude but gives Carson the space she needs with his self-sufficient, independent ways. Ben panders after her but exhibits a kindness she appreciates. Neither of them embody all of which she lost in her husband’s death.

The need for human interaction intertwines with the daily struggle of tribulation, remorse and adjustment, revolving around the constant battles between the uninfected and the last remaining homicidal maniacs. Days of Love and Blood is a story which examines the bonds created between people in times of change with an unexpected shocking end that will have you questioning your own threshold for pain.

I was impressed with this book, in more ways than one. You have a woman who is pretty much badass in taking care of herself and her child.
In a way this book reminded me of The Cell by Stephen King as if you read that book you know people went crazy as well. 

I liked Carson and how she was a survivor not only for herself but for her child as well. And she killed the homicidals with a cool ass set of weapons. I kind of wanted to get some training in myself just in case!! I am not sure if I could what she had to in order to survive with all the crazy homicidal people running around.
I think the one thing that though me off and I would just wonder okay what does this have to do with anything is when you would go back and forth with her memories and the main storyline. You would just reading a part with action then all of a sudden you would be jumping into a memory she has with her past and her husband. In a way it deterred me from giving this book a 5 star rating.

This book had a bunch of twist and turns that I did not really see coming especially the ending. I so did not see that coming and was very surprised. This is one book that will keep you on your toes and leave you staying up late at night just to see what is going to happen next.

Another main character was Cooper, at times I could feel his heartbreak but then when he started acting the way he did towards Carson that was no excuse he made me want to punch him in the balls for treating her that way.

There was so much going on in this book that captured me from the beginning! Action, romance, drama, and suspense! All of it combined made for a really great read.
