Review: Controlling the Dead by Annie Walls





Love zombies? Strong plot lines? A machete wielding heroine who paints? WHY have you not read this yet? Walk… run… hurry and go buy this book! Kansas and her buddies return for more zombie butt kicking and heart wrenching action in book two of The Famished Series by Annie Walls. Kansas has survived her horror and is trying to heal. She juggles her feelings for Rudy and Mac while trying to rescue just about everyone around her except for her broken self. After traveling with Reese to New Orleans to talk Voodoo with the local priest, Kansas will later earn a surprising gift for her troubles of visiting later in the story.

Returning to the boisterous and rowdy community, Kansas spends the majority of her time lost in booze and trying to recover. Forced into a week of healing, the story shoots off as Kansas starts scheming to save others while fighting her attraction to Rudy. As the group leaves to find the disturbing evidence of those infecting innocents, the band of friends suffers losses and gains equally.

I love, love, love this author’s writing style. Her supporting characters have vivid personalities and their stories intertwine perfectly with the main plotline. I enjoy the author’s easy flow of details and describing a horrorific world without being overly dramatic or gory. Kansas is an easy character to like and a fun, if damaged heroine.
