Review & Giveaway: Good Intentions (The Dead War Series) by D. N. Simmons

 Good Intentions Button 300 x 225


Good intentions lead to zombies. Whoops.

I have a minor (major) zombie and dystopian reading obsession. I've read indie, mainstream, and New York best seller zombie novels. Some rock and some stink. This author rocked my zombie loving socks off. The author manages realistic horror without being too gory or going out of the way to make the reader gag with grossness. The writing is detailed without being boring and went straight to the zombie horror and mayhem. Yeah!

Vincent and his fellow scientist cronies are awarded an army contract to work with an unknown compound. The purpose is to mold the compound into something that will cure diseases and make American soldiers superior. Instead, it raises a dead chimpanzee that goes ape crazy and eats one of the scientists. And walla! Insane super strong and fast zombies are born... And eating everyone in sight. Chicago is swarmed and soon the outlying areas are being infected.

Further along in the story CDC top brass, military, Vincent, and miscellaneous folks band together to travel to a safe location. Their purpose is to try and come up with a cure while the rest of America gets ready for the epidemic.

And suddenly... there are vampires. I can't wait for book two.
